Accept it or not, the Arizona Wildcats are in the NIT, and their first test comes against the Bucknell Bison, a mid-major team that has its own recent success in the NCAA Tournament.

  • It's essential I begin the links with the best story coming out of the Pac-12 Tournament. My former assistant editor at the Daily Wildcat, Alex Williams, wrote this gripping column on Kyle Fogg following Arizona's loss to Colorado in the Pac-12 Championship game. Let me just say that one reader tweeted at him that it made her cry. Read the whole thing. It's proof that Kyle Fogg epitomizes the cliche that "hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." Enough said.
  • Pat Finley of the Arizona Daily Star breaks down the game and the growth spurt of big man Mike Muscala, a Minnesota native who idolized former Minnesota Timberwolves' wing Wally Szczerbiak and brings some guard skills to a 6-foot-11 frame. We know how it went last time the Wildcats faced a big guy who can take it outside. Washington State's Brock Motum dropped 28 points on UA in a 76-72 win in Pullman.
