We most admired departing ASU swingman Trent Lockett this past season after he badly twisted his ankle in a mid-January game against the Oregon State Beavers.
Lockett was perhaps the only steadying influence on an obviously (10-20 record) shaky Sun Devils' squad, both on and off the co ... More >>
We often attend the Pac-12 men's basketball tournament in Los Angeles. It's a few days in downtown LA, where we always visit the old city library (beautiful), walk everywhere (safer than you think), stay on the cheap (always good as long as the bedbugs don't bite), and watch a whole lot of hoop.G ...

This edition of the Arizona Wildcats is unlikely to get too deep into the upcoming NCAA tournament--inexperience at the point guard position and other shortcomings surely will spell their doom, hopefully in the second weekend, not the first.
We like Derrick Williams, the Pac-10's best player. ... More >>
Just last week, Arizona State laid a hurtin' on the Oregon Ducks over in Tempe, and the rematch looked favorable for the Sun Devils in the first round of the Pac-10 men's basketball tournament in Los Angeles.

lasoccernews.comThe pageantry, spirit and global fascination should be enough to get even casual soccer fans to plop down and watch a game or two of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
But if it somehow isn't, there is a local connection between Valley residents and the iconic tournament being played ... More >>
If it wasn't a sure thing that the University of Arizona men's basketball team will have to win the Pac-10 conference championship next month to keep its streak of 25 consecutive years in the NCAA tournament intact -- it is now.
That's because the Wildcats stunningly lost at home ... More >>
Only one thing's certain in this topsy-turvy Pacific-10 men's basketball season: From first place to last, any of the 10 teams are eminently capable of winning on any given night.
That definitely includes the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Arizona Wildcats, both of who ... More >>
The upside of men's Pacific-10 basketball being in kind of a down cycle this year is that every team--and we mean every team--is in every game.
Even Oregon State, in last place with a 3-6 league record, beat league-leading Arizona last month, and the Beavers are only three games out o ... More >>
No question, University of Arizona football has been lousy at best for about a decade now.
Alums like ourselves who pay attention to such weighty things quietly were suffering through yet another mediocre season until -- Hallelujah! -- the Wildcats throttled ASU down in Tucson a few weeks ago and th ... More >>
