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

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Dusan Ristic admitted he has a lot to learn, especially on defense, but he's also aware he already came a long way since arriving on Arizona campus in May.

A few glimpses showed on Tuesday...

Arizona's blueprint to beat Oregon differs from Stanford script

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Stanford, everyone thought, had the blueprint to beat Oregon. Power trumps speed. Be physical. Win the line of scrimmage and quickly disrupt the Ducks' precision on offense. The Cardinal won matchups in 2012 and 2013 and went on to be champions of the Pac-12 North. None of which explains Arizona. "Everyone was assuming that it was just the physicality and the toughness...
