Drew Stanton doubtful for Cardinals on Sunday

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Sports really can bring out the nutty side in people, as the status of Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton proved this week. When coach Bruce Arians told reporters on Wednesday that Stanton's best-case scenario for return from a knee injury was Sunday against the Seahawks, he raised eyebrows, only to have Stanton laugh off those comments later.

RENTON, Wash. -- At some point every week, Pete Carroll will describe the upcoming opponent as a ''championship opportunity.'' Every week. Without fail.

Diamondbacks follow off-season script: Big bat, smaller payroll, young arms

 PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks did not make the biggest splash at the winter meetings last week. Chicago's teams did that, both the south- and north-siders. New Los Angeles Dodgers' president Andrew Friedman found creative ways to rework his unwieldy roster, also.  But the D-backs were plenty busy in their own way -- sticking to the plan laid out by chief of baseball operations Tony...

Arizona State's Shaquielle McKissic has gone from conviction to redemption

TEMPE, Ariz. – The desert sun is streaming through the window. It illuminates the big smile of the broad-shouldered 24-year-old whose path here – from the floor of a jail cell, to the back seat of a Cadillac Catera that was his home for a month to the gleaming facility of a Pac-12 basketball program where he’ll soon get his college degree – seems to fall somewhere between...

Improving Ristic helps No. 3 Arizona rout Utah Valley

Arizona (8-0) is shooting 48.6 percent but was held under 45 percent in two of the last...
