Cats should play as if they have nothing to lose


SPORTS SOUND-OFFRe: UA men’s basketball

Someone please tell Dicky V. that his passion for hoops is great and that’s why I am thankful he gives us no respect. One-game season now, guys. Prove him wrong. Build a memory.


So Wildcat Basketball, you have been given the gift of a second chance by the committee. What do you plan to do with it? Will you play like you have nothing to lose as you did during the seven-game win streak? Or will you play to not lose as you did during the last six games?


Arizona beat three conference champions in Washington, Kansas and Gonzaga. In addition they beat the Pac-10 tournament winner in USC. I believe Gonzaga trounced on Saint Mary’s.

Gonzaga plays the big boys. St. Mary’s needs to do the same.


This entrance means we finally have to starting winning on the road. We finally have to start playing defense. We must start playing together.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
