Coyotes need jolt, Barroway deal could help

The NHL Board of Governors in the next week is expected to approve the 51 percent sale of the Coyotes to Philadelphia hedge fund manager Andrew Barroway. It can't come soon enough.  The Coyotes are 2-3-1 through six games, not an unmanageable record so early in the season but a bit more troubling when you look at the early returns elsewhere in the Western Conference. If you...

ASU cornerback Kweishi Brown goes from disinterested to rising star

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Just a few years ago, Kweishi Brown figured he was done playing football. He was admittedly lazy, unmotivated and uninvolved with the sport he'd played his whole life. Today, he's back in the game and emerging as a potential star at cornerback for a young defense on the rise at Arizona State. "Phenomenal," coach Todd Graham said after ASU's 26...

Carson Palmer relieved to escape Oakland chaos for Arizona

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is not the type to wax poetic about a former team, nor is he the type to rip a former team. The closest that Phoenix media ever got to a criticism of his two seasons in Oakland was when he admitted in training camp how nice it is to play on decent playing surfaces in Arizona; an opportunity not afforded at the Raiders' practice...

Shortcomings and all, Yandle's skills make him special to Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Saturday's 3-2, overtime win over the Los Angeles Kings was a perfect illustration of Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle's game. He was on the ice for the first two L.A. goals as the Kings took a 2-0, first-period lead. The Yandle critics were out in force, although it's debatable whether he deserved blame on either goal.  Then with 39 seconds left in...

Wide right: No miracle finish as Arizona falls to USC

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona needed one more stop. It got it. It needed an onside kick recovery. Got that, too.

Game over as Skowron missed with 12 seconds left, giving USC a 28-26 win over No. 10 Arizona in front...

Wildcats surge as offensive line grows up

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Arizona Wildcats' offensive line was young and inexperienced a few years ago. The future, they believed, had much to offer. They were right.

All's well as Bledsoe returns to Suns' fold

PHOENIX -- Take a self-professed "man of few words," have him dribble off to Alabama for the summer and you're left with little more than a hallelujah chorus of crickets. While those insects were busy chirping, the Suns and their fans didn't hear much from Eric Bledsoe or his agent. OK, the restricted-free-agent guard was tracked down at a street-ball event and...
