Wildcat blog: Cats may not last long in tourney

I’ll try to give some perspective. But here’s the reality: Arizona hasn’t won a Pac-10 Conference Tournament title since 2002.

Remember when the Wildcats used to dominate the event? Arizona won four consecutive titles and didn’t apologize for it. It routed teams. Now, UA and its fans are hoping to win one or two games (be realistic) just to have a chance to get in the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats open play against Arizona State at noon Thursday in the first round in Los Angeles.

In the Pac-10 tourney overall, UA is 17-7 through the years. Since its last title, it is 5-6, with a second-place finish in 2005. The No. 5 seed, which UA has going in, is 5-10 all-time in the tournament.

The No. 4 seed is 12-10 overall. I like Arizona’s chances on Thursday afternoon. The numbers, however, say the Wildcats most likely won’t have an extended stay in the tournament.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
