Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona basketball waiting to start practice

Arizona isn't starting practices as early as possible

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

We're coming up on six weeks until the official start of the Arizona Wildcats basketball opener, which means the team is eligible to start practice on Friday. But they won't actually start until Sunday, and Bruce Pascoe explains why, plus he drops every single Arizona basketball link you could ever need at the end of September

- Will Allonzo Trier live up to the hype this year?

Football

- Most sports books don't have a betting line on Arizona/Stanford because there's a lot going on with the Wildcats right now with Scooby out and Anu not being at practice on Tuesday

- Rule of Tree wonders if Stanford/Cal will be for the Pac-12 North. After having experienced that scenario here last year, let's hope this happens. They also make the case that losing early was the best thing for the Cardinal

- Building The Dam is already previewing next week's game because they have nothing better to do

Baseball

- D1Baseball seems to have named Arizona the 22nd-best program in the modern era, despite being the 9th-winningest program all-time

- The Mexican Baseball Fiesta is set to start Thursday at Hi Corbett
