Key to game may come with 8 minutes left

Pay extra attention when there are about eight minutes left in the game.

That is when Louisville’s pressure defense starts taking its toll, said Cardinals guard Edgar Sosa.

“That’s when you can see the other teams’ point guards don’t want to break the press any more. They don’t want the ball and they’re telling someone else to bring it up,” said Sosa a 6-foot-1 guard.

“Once they do that, we know we have the game because we got the ball out of the main ball-handlers’ hands.”

Cardinals forward has memory lapse

Louisville junior forward Earl Clark was asked how much he watched Arizona during the regular season. He turned to a teammate and asked: “What conference do they play in?”

“I don’t think the Pac-10 is on TV too much,” Clark added. “I didn’t get to see a lot. I saw a couple of games. I like their style of play.”

A teammate, helping out a video crew, put a microphone in front of Clark and asked what he thought of the state of Arizona.

“I don’t think I have ever been there,” he said.

He was then reminded that the Cardinals played in Glendale in December, losing to Minnesota 70-64 in University of Phoenix Stadium.

“Oh, yeah,” Clark said. “We lost, that’s why I don’t remember.”



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
