Tweets from the London 2012 Olympics: Arizona Wildcat Styleby Christopher C. Wuensch on Aug. 03, 2012, under Sports
There are more than 20 athletes with ties to Tucson looking to make some noise in the pools and on the tracks, courts and fields of London at the XXX Olympic Games. They’re also sounding off on Twitter:
Wildcat alum Andre Iguodala and Team USA appear to be barreling toward a basketball gold medal – as long as they play Nigeria every game. USA outscored Nigeria on Aug. 2 by 83 points. Nine of those points belonged to Iggy, who hit all three of his 3-point attempts. Team USA takes on Lithuania on Aug. 4.
That was one of the most amazing moments of my life.
