Bear Down…and Blog!
Current and former University of Arizona athletes are always making news and not always in traditional mediums. We scoured the Internet and found Wildcats online by visiting these lynx…
“Wildcats for life!!” – Taryne Mowatt
Former Wildcat hoops stars Brendon Lavender and Kyle Fogg haven’t given up on their NBA dreams yet, despite not being selected in last week’s amateur draft.
Lavender, tied for sixth in UA history for three-point percentage, Tweeted over the weekend that he’ll play for the Atlanta Hawks’ summer league squad.
Fogg, who led Arizona with 14.5 ppg has signed on to play for the Houston Rockets this summer.
Inclusion on a summer league team isn’t a guarantee to make the big club. Think of it as an extended tryout.
Former Wildcat center/power forward Jesse Perry will likely head overseas to play when his pending legal issues are resolved.
Arizona leads the nation in draft picks (34) since 1988, even though no Wildcats were selected this year.
Made the Atlanta Hawks Summer League Team. Thank you to the people who never gave up on me.

- Arizona running back presumably trying to bulk up for the upcoming season
I’m usually all about Arizona alum making it. But B-Lav has no shot of making the Hawks if Salim couldn’t stick. Salim > Lav
