Mike Candrea pointed at his ace and mouthed the same word \u2014 \u201cwow\u201d \u2014 a few times.

That was about all the coach could say Friday night, after watching Danielle O\u2019Toole throw a no-hitter in fifth-ranked Arizona\u2019s 3-0 win over No. 6 Washington at Hillenbrand Stadium. The no-no was the first of O\u2019Toole\u2019s collegiate career.

\u201cIt couldn\u2019t happen to a better person,\u201d Candrea said moments after the game. \u201cShe\u2019s a competitor; a big game pitcher. She loves challenges and is well-prepared. To control the ball all night like that against a good hitting ballclub ...\u201d

O\u2019Toole would\u2019ve had a perfect game if not for a walk in the fourth inning and a hit batter in the sixth.

The lefty finished with seven strikeouts, three coming in the final inning. O\u2019Toole lowered her season ERA to 0.69.

\u201cI am always a little nervous at the start,\u201d said O\u2019Toole, who is 15-1 this season. \u201cUp here (in my mind) I said, \u2018Keep going, keep going. You\u2019re doing good.\u2019

\u201cIn the seventh on the last batter after the second strike, I was like, \u2018Oh my god! I\u2019m just gonna throw the ball and if she hits it, she hits it.\u2019\u201d

Washington second baseman Sis Bates went down swinging for the last out.

Mo Mercado, who went 2-for-2, hitting a double and driving in a run, didn\u2019t know until after the game that O\u2019Toole had thrown a no-hitter.

\u201cWe focus on every pitch, every batter,\u201d Mercado said. \u201cI didn\u2019t realize she was throwing that well. It\u2019s awesome. One thing about Tooly is that you know she gets her strikeouts. And, if when she doesn\u2019t, it\u2019s important to play good defense behind her.

\u201cAnd the best teams score early and late. It\u2019s huge for us as it lets our pitchers settle in quickly.\u201d

The Wildcats (25-3, 4-0 Pac-12) got off to that quick start by scoring two runs in the first inning.

Mandie Perez led off with a hard single up the right side and moved to second on a shot to left by Dejah Mulipola.

Both runners moved up on a ball that went over the Washington catcher\u2019s glove. Alyssa Palomino\u2019s long sacrifice fly to center field drove in Perez for the Wildcats\u2019 first run. Mercado\u2019s single to left drove in Mulipola to give Arizona a 2-0 lead.

The Wildcats\u2019 other run came in the sixth inning on a home run by designated hitter Tamara Statman.

Arizona faces Washington (26-4, 3-1 Pac-12) for the second game of the series Saturday at noon.

A reward of up to $7,500 through 88-CRIME is being offered for information leading to an arrest in a sexual assault and kidnapping last month.

Detectives are asking the public for help in identifying the assailant who attacked a woman Feb. 27 at a midtown business in the 1600 block of North Swan Road, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

The neighborhood is south of East Pima Street.

After the attack at about 8:30 p.m., the man kidnapped the woman and her 3-year-old son in the woman's car, Dugan said.

The woman had finished working and was preparing to leave. She buckled her son into the car seat in the vehicle, and went back inside the building to retrieve something she left behind, Dugan said. He said a man holding brass knuckles followed her inside.

The man threatened to hurt the woman if she didn't follow his directions, said Dugan. He said the man forced her into an office and sexually assaulted her.

Dugan said the man then demanded her car keys and he forced her into the car before driving away. When they were stopped at a traffic light at East Grant Road and North Mountain Avenue, a Tucson Fire Department truck approached with its emergency lights on, Dugan said.

The woman jumped out of the car and flagged down firefighters for help.

Meanwhile, the assailant drove off heading west with the woman's son in the back seat.

Sexual assault detectives and sex offender registration and tracking unit detectives went to the scene, and an Amber Alert was issued, Dugan said.

The car was found at about 1 a.m. in the 4400 block of East Water Street, and the boy was asleep and unharmed in the back seat, said Dugan.

The assailant, who was captured on surveillance video, is believed to be a white man who is between 40 to 50 years old. He has acne scars on his face, and is about 6 feet tall. He has a strong build.

Detectives ask anyone with information to call 88-CRIME, the anonymous tipster hotline. \u00a0\u00a0

Arizona\u2019s congressional delegation is pushing to help the city of Nogales avoid a $40 million repair bill for a cross-border sewage pipeline.

The Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act would shift the financial burden of repairing the pipeline, which carries millions of gallons of sewage from Mexico to Nogales every day, to the International Boundary and Water Commission, a federal agency tasked with cross-border water issues.

The bill also would ensure the city of Nogales does not pay a \"disproportionate percentage\" of the costs to maintain the pipeline, according to a news release from Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona.\u00a0

Although most of the pipeline is in Arizona, more than 80 percent of the waste that flows through it comes from Mexico, said Nogales City Manager Carlos Rivera.

\u201cIt is not fair for a city with a population of 20,000 to pay for the waste of a city with a population of 300,000,\u201d Rivera said, referring to the populations of Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Sonora, respectively.\u00a0

The pipeline is over 40 years old and eroding due to excessive use, according to the IBWC. The average lifespan for this type of pipeline is 50 years.\u00a0The roughly 3-foot-diameter pipe runs about nine miles from Nogales to a treatment plant in Rio Rico.\u00a0

The $40 million repair would be difficult, if not impossible, for the city to afford, Rivera said.\u00a0

McCain and fellow Republican Sen. Jeff Flake introduced the bill in the Senate earlier this month, while Reps. Martha McSally, a Republican, and Democrat Ra\u00fal Grijalva introduced a companion bill in the House of Representatives.

\u201cNogales residents should not have to pay for runoff and sewage not under their control,\"\u00a0McCain said in a statement. \"Our bill finally brings fairness to the people of Nogales.\u201d\u00a0

Members of Arizona's congressional delegation have proposed amendments to funding bills and other measures every year since at least 2004 to address the cost of repairing the pipeline. Congressional records indicate the new bill is the first time those efforts have taken the form of standalone bills.

All four of the sponsors of the new bills declined to respond to questions from the Star.

The IBWC released a statement saying the agency officials are \u201creviewing the proposal in detail and look forward to working with Sen. McCain and Rep. McSally.\u201d

The need to fix the International Outfall Interceptor, as the pipeline is known, is \"urgent,\" said Guillermo Valencia, chairman of the Greater Nogales Santa Cruz County Port Authority.\u00a0

\u201cThe significance of this legislation cannot be overstated,\u201d Valencia said.\u00a0

A team led by University of Arizona astronomer Christopher Walker has been selected by NASA to launch a balloon-borne observatory to study the interstellar gas in the Milky Way and a smaller satellite galaxy.

The $40 million mission is scheduled to launch in December 2021 from NASA\u2019s balloon facility in Antarctica.

It will use NASA\u2019s latest Ultra-Long-Duration Balloon technology, allowing the observatory to stay aloft for 100 to 170 days.

That will be enough time to map a large swath of the Milky Way galaxy and all of the smaller satellite galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud, said Walker, an astronomer at the Steward Observatory.

The Milky Way, our home galaxy, is a more evolved \u201cpresent-day galaxy,\u201d while the Large Magellanic Cloud \u201chas characteristics of a galaxy in the early universe,\u201d he said.

Using those two \u201cbookends,\u201d Walker said astronomers can understand \u201cthe life cycle of the interstellar medium and how the gas and dust between the stars assembled into stars and planets and all the stuff that goes with it.\u201d

Walker said he tells his students at the UA that the study of such seemingly esoteric phenomena is really very personal \u2014 \u201c4.7 billion years ago, every atom in your body was floating in the interstellar medium.\u201d

Walker, who first proposed the mission as an orbital one 14 years ago, said switching to a balloon launch allows him to gather the same scientific data in less time for 5 percent of the cost of a rocket-launched satellite.

\u201cFrom a balloon, you can have a much more powerful instrument,\u201d Walker said. \u201cIt also uses state-of-the art technology.\u201d

The observatory will include a 1-meter mirror and an array of instruments to detect emission lines from carbon, oxygen and nitrogen.

That\u2019s difficult to impossible to do with ground-based telescopes, Walker said, but the balloon will take the telescope above 95 percent of the Earth\u2019s atmosphere. That\u2019s critical for terahertz astronomy, which explores the millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths of light between infrared and microwaves.

The mission is known as GUSTO, which stands for Galactic/Extragalactic ULDB Spectroscopic Terahertz Observatory.

\u201cGUSTO will provide the first complete study of all phases of the stellar life cycle, from the formation of molecular clouds, through star birth and evolution, to the formation of gas clouds and the re-initiation of the cycle,\u201d Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director in the Science Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C., said Friday in a NASA news release.

Walker and co-investigator Craig Kulesa, another Steward astronomer, lead an international team that has already launched two Stratospheric Terahertz Observatories \u2014 \u201cpathfinder\u201d missions that proved the scientific merit of GUSTO, said Walker.

Those missions featured a \u201cFrankenstein\u2019s monster\u201d observatory, cobbled together from parts originally slated for other missions, Walker said.

GUSTO will be built with new parts, with the telescope, mirror and instruments developed at the UA.

Mission operations and the gondola for the instruments will be supplied by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

NASA\u2019s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, MIT, Arizona State University and the Netherlands Institute for Space Research will contribute detector technology.

The team includes Christopher Groppi, an associate professor at ASU\u2019s School of Earth and Space Exploration, who, like Kulesa, is one of Walker\u2019s former graduate students.

James Michael Moeller has been named president of the new Tucson temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to Deseret News, the church\u2019s official publication.

Moeller, 74, is a retired lawyer and has served in various church leadership roles. His wife, Marina Evelyn Harrison Moeller, will serve as matron for the temple, at 7281 N. Skyline Drive. The temple is expected to open this summer.

Church leadership in Salt Lake City announced the construction of the Tucson temple in October 2012 and broke ground in 2015. This, Arizona\u2019s sixth LDS temple, will eliminate a drive to Mesa or the Gila Valley for Mormons.

Moeller, of Tucson\u2019s Tanque Verde Ward, served as president of the Salt Lake City Mission, was a temple worker in Mesa and held other church positions in Tucson.

The construction of a temple in Tucson indicates the Mormon community in Southern Arizona is large enough to sustain the volunteer-run temple.

The Tucson temple will serve 10 stakes covering much of Southern Arizona, said Jana Cherrington, a Tucson church member and public affairs worker, in an earlier interview with the Star. Stakes are comparable to dioceses.

The public can attend an open house at the temple beginning June 3, and it will conclude June 24. It will not be open Sundays.

Following the open house, the public will no longer have access to the temple, officials said.

No need to hide your children and board up the house in preparation for the apocalypse because of these insects known as Crane flies. Despite their scary looks and large numbers of them popping up around Tucson, Crane flies are harmless to humans and beneficial to the environment.

According to one website, \u00a0\"Crane Flies grow up to 2 1/2 inches long, with a wingspan of three inches. They are grayish-brown and slender. Their legs are super-thin and long. They are usually about twice as long as their bodies.\"

During a wet winter or spring, these insects emerge from the soil, mate and lay eggs in their short 15-day or so adult life. They don't eat, although one website\u00a0claims they might possibly partake of flower nectar. They are attracted to light and may try to sneak in on you.

These insects are actually considered beneficial, especially by gardeners. The larvae feed on decaying organic matter, thereby speeding decomposition, according to this website.

Paul Magloire Jr. has played the \u201cMadden\u201d video game for as long as he can remember.

\u201cThere hasn\u2019t been a year when I haven\u2019t created myself and put myself in the game,\u201d the former Arizona Wildcats linebacker said.

On Friday, he took another step toward not having to do that in the next iteration of the game.

Magloire was among 13 participants in Arizona\u2019s on-campus pro day. He continued to build on a productive offseason, bench-pressing 225 pounds 25 times and registering a 119-inch broad jump. Those numbers would have tied for second and 12th, respectively, among linebackers at last month\u2019s NFL scouting combine had Magloire been invited.

\u201cI\u2019m excited about this process,\u201d Magloire said. \u201cI feel like I\u2019m only getting better. I\u2019m becoming a better player all around. I think I fit a lot of schemes at the next level.\u201d

Magloire came to Arizona as a safety before switching to linebacker about halfway through the 2015 season. He led the team in tackles last year with 81, including 5.5 for losses, and earned an invite to the East-West Shrine Game. His coach there, Larry Foote of the Arizona Cardinals, ran his workout Friday.

Magloire has become a favorite among some draft analysts, including Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated and Matt Miller of Bleacher Report. Miller projected Magloire as a fourth-round pick earlier this month.

\u201cYou hear a lot of things,\u201d Magloire said. \u201cBut you try to take it with a grain of salt.\u201d

Although he has a workout lined up with the New York Giants \u2014 \u201cThat\u2019s one,\u201d he said. \u201cHopefully I get a couple more\u201d \u2014 Magloire is not a shoo-in to be selected. He\u2019ll head into the April 27-29 draft, which he plans to watch with his family, hoping for the best.

\u201cI\u2019m not going to have any expectations,\u201d Magloire said. \u201cI\u2019m just going to go with it. Hopefully it\u2019s hearing my name called.\u201d

Griffey impresses

Receiver Trey Griffey had the most impressive workout, according to observers. Arizona\u2019s pro day is closed to the media.

With his family on hand \u2014 including Hall of Fame dad Ken Jr. and sister Taryn, who plays for the UA women\u2019s basketball team \u2014 Trey recorded 40-yard dash times of 4.50 and 4.56 seconds. Those are good times for a player of Griffey\u2019s size; he measured at 6-2 1/8, 209 pounds. He also did 17 bench-press reps, which would have tied for eighth among wideouts at the combine.

Griffey caught only 23 passes last season, the victim of an Arizona passing attack that was inconsistent at best. UA coach Rich Rodriguez doesn\u2019t believe that will hurt Griffey\u2019s stock.

\u201cThe NFL doesn\u2019t look as much at numbers,\u201d Rodriguez said. \u201cThey\u2019ll watch a guy on film. They\u2019ll watch him in person. They\u2019ll work him out. The numbers part is inflated some places anyway because they throw it all the time. They just look at guys that can play.\u201d

Like Magloire, Griffey is considered a Day 3 prospect in the draft. He was unavailable for post-workout interviews because he had a plane to catch, according to a UA spokesman.

Receiver Samajie Grant matched Griffey with 17 bench reps. Offensive lineman Freddie Tagaloa had 41 bench reps, six more than anyone at any position at the combine. Defensive lineman Aiulua Fanene had 35 reps, matching the most at the combine.

Tight end Josh Kern had a 34-inch vertical jump, which would have tied for seventh among combine tight ends. Kern did 19 bench reps and raised about $850 for charity in the process through PledgeIt.org.

Dawkins\u2019 job to lose?

Rodriguez provided a little bit of clarity on the Wildcats\u2019 quarterback situation after Friday morning\u2019s practice.

Incumbent Brandon Dawkins has been the primary first-team quarterback this spring, Rodriguez said. Khalil Tate mainly has worked with the second team.

Rodriguez won\u2019t name a starter until shortly before the season starts but did say, regarding Dawkins and Tate, \u201cKhalil\u2019s gotta beat him out.\u201d

Rodriguez and quarterbacks coach Rod Smith said it\u2019s natural for Dawkins to be ahead of Tate because the former has more experience. Dawkins is entering his redshirt junior season and started nine games last year; Tate will be an 18-year-old true sophomore in fall and has made one start. Smith said he\u2019s excited about both players but that Dawkins has a \u201cslight lead\u201d as of now.

\u201cHe\u2019s probably ahead from a mental standpoint because he\u2019s had more reps at it, he\u2019s had more time at it\u201d Smith said. \u201cBrandon\u2019s had a pretty decent spring so far. Khalil\u2019s had some moments where he\u2019s been pretty good, too.

\u201cWho will be the guy? We\u2019ll see how that goes.\u201d

Regardless of who starts, Rodriguez expects Arizona\u2019s \u201cmenu of plays\u201d to expand this season with both quarterbacks having another year in the system.

Extra points

\u2022 Redshirt freshman defensive end Jalen Cochran hasn\u2019t practiced this spring because of concussion issues dating to fall. \u201cObviously, that\u2019s a concern,\u201d Rodriguez said.

\u2022 Tailback Nick Wilson says he weighs 212 pounds. He looks strong in his upper body. He played at 205 pounds last year. Durability is the key issue with Wilson after two injury-plagued seasons.

\u2022 Rodriguez said tailback Nathan Tilford is physically ready to play as a freshman. The question is whether he\u2019ll get there mentally. Participating in spring practice increases his chances.

\u2022 Rodriguez said he\u2019d like to have 10 wide receivers \u201cwe have confidence in.\u201d To get there, newcomers Brian Casteel and Drew Dixon would have to contribute this season.

\u2022 Rodriguez expects the next wave of new players to raise the competition and talent levels teamwide. \u201cIt\u2019s going to be the most competitive August camp since I\u2019ve been here,\u201d he said.

\u2022 Redshirt freshman linebacker Kahi Neves entered the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility wearing a T-shirt and shorts, suggesting that he did not practice.

A Tucson woman has pleaded guilty to an \u201copen-ended\u201d offense for her involvement in a prostitution business that ensnared local police employees, records show.

Miranda Gomez was identified by the Tucson Police Department as the \u201cbooker\u201d for Daisy\u2019s Delights, an illicit massage parlor that operated for about two years until it was raided in January 2015, according to police documents.

Gomez, 32, took the appointments and communicated with clients of the business, which included public safety employees, the documents said.

On March 13, Gomez pleaded guilty to attempting to receive the earnings of a prostitute, which is considered an open-ended or undesignated offense, meaning it will be treated as a felony until the court \u201centers an order designating the offense as a misdemeanor,\u201d according to the plea agreement filed in Pima County Superior Court.

Her conviction carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison, three years of probation and up to $150,000 in fines, the agreement says. She will be sentenced by Pima County Superior Court Judge Paul Tang on April 17.

Gomez was initially charged with illegal control of an enterprise and receiving the earnings of a prostitute, both felonies.

Daisy\u2019s Delights was an offshoot of the long-running illegal massage parlor, By Spanish that police began investigating in November of 2011. Their investigation revealed that a former employee of By Spanish, Stephanie Garcia, started a competing business, police documents show.

During the investigation into the businesses, investigators discovered that 10 Tucson police employees had knowledge of or were customers of the businesses.

Garcia, who is facing eight felony charges, including illegal control of an enterprise, money laundering, maintaining a house of prostitution and receiving the earnings of a prostitute, has a case management hearing scheduled in Pima County Superior Court on April 10.

SAN JOSE, Calif. \u2014

Nick the Greek\u2019s restaurant stays open till 3 a.m. in downtown San Jose. A few ticks before 2, my colleagues and I walked in, lined up behind assorted clubbers, boozers and wayward souls.

I never eat Greek food, but in the wee hours of Friday morning I had no other option and had to make a quick choice. I selected a Beefteki Pita with Tzatziki sauce.

It was Greek to me.

That\u2019s a newspaper guy\u2019s version of the finish to Arizona\u2019s Sweet 16 loss to Xavier. A few hours earlier, whatever Xavier did was Greek to Arizona.

In the final 2:17, with limited options, Arizona missed five consecutive shots and committed a turnover. Xavier\u2019s zone defense was like a great Sphinx to the Wildcats.

It was Tzatziki sauce.

Xavier coach Chris Mack successfully took away three of Arizona\u2019s strengths:

1. He slowed the pace to 61 possessions, which was the second-slowest of Arizona\u2019s season. His zone defense forced Arizona to shoot with an average of nine seconds left on the shot clock. The UA\u2019s season average was to get a shot with 14 seconds. Those five seconds led to a lot of rushed and forced shots Thursday.

2. Because Arizona lacked the proper movement, passing, spacing and imagination against Mack\u2019s zone, it was forced to shoot from the edge, attempting 27 3-pointers, a season high. Ordinarily, 3-point shots make up 24 percent of Arizona\u2019s shooting attempts. On Thursday it was 43 percent.

3. The Musketeers committed only 14 fouls, permitting Arizona to shoot a mere 11 free throws. Arizona made 221 more foul shots than opponents this year, and only once since December (a loss at Oregon) did the Wildcats shoot fewer foul shots than they did Thursday.

Remember when UA forward Kevin Parrom used to pledge \u201cno easy buckets?\u201d It turned on the Wildcats; on Thursday, Arizona got few easy buckets.

Mack, who succeeded Sean Miller at Xavier in 2009, coached the game of his life.

Beyond that, I think Arizona lost for three reasons not as easily tracked by metrics or the box score.

The first is that Lauri Markkanen did not attempt a shot in the final 11:12. That\u2019s because he was used in the role Kaleb Tarczewski played for Arizona. Markkanen became a high-post screener, rarely rotating to the corner, where he often gets lost by opposing defenses.

At halftime, Miller told CBS that \u201cwe\u2019ve got to be unselfish against this zone, move the ball and find Lauri.\u201d

No one found Lauri. He didn\u2019t attempt a foul shot in the second half, either, which is unfathomable. Against a shorter team like the Musketeers, you\u2019d expect him to spend the night at the foul line, the way he did against Saint Mary\u2019s (he was 9 for 10) and when he shot 19 foul shots in the Pac-12 Tournament.

But some of that is on Markkanen\u2019s transition to college basketball. He is learning to play the mid- to low-post and it\u2019s not easy against a zone that often found him trapped by three Musketeers. He does not go strong into the paint and use his size as an advantage. He doesn\u2019t demand the ball, instead keeping his arms low. He is probably too unselfish.

It was like having Mike Trout on your team and batting him eighth in the lineup.

Second, Allonzo Trier appeared to be gassed in the final three minutes. When he scored 15 consecutive points, expanding a 49-48 lead to 64-61, he probably emptied his tank.

Trier missed a quick 3-pointer from the baseline with 2:17 remaining \u2014 Arizona was leading 71-67 \u2014 a shot that could\u2019ve extinguished the Musketeers. As Xavier sped to the other end of the court in transition, Trier was a step late. When he finally got to the other end of the court, he reached over Malcolm Bernard and fouled him.

Those two foul shots made it 71-69 and it was a different game.

Trier played 19 minutes in the second half. Markkanen played the full 40 minutes; he averages 30. Inside the final two minutes, neither seemed to have his legs.

One more thing: the heartbeat of Arizona\u2019s team, senior Kadeem Allen, appeared to get chippy with Xavier\u2019s best player, Trevon Bluiett. Allen got two fouls in the game\u2019s first 2:30. It was a mano a mano showdown versus two Alpha males, and it was costly. Allen spent 15 minutes on the bench in the first half.

While he was out, Bluiett, with 18 first-half points \u2014 16 while Allen was on the bench \u2014 allowed his team to gather itself and build enough confidence to win the game.

Ultimately, Xavier won in the final 40 seconds when Mack drew up a play not to Bluiett nor the Musketeers\u2019 No. 2 option, J.P. Macura, but to junior center Sean O\u2019Mara. Arizona didn\u2019t seem to be expecting it.

O\u2019Mara caught a simple lob pass over Markkanen, 3 feet from the bucket. Help defense from Keanu Pinder and Rawle Alkins was about one second too late to prevent the game-winning basket.

Such is life in the NCAA Tournament.

In a game of just 61 possessions for each team, foul trouble, tired legs, the inability to get the ball to your tallest player and an unexpected lob pass can make a No. 11 seed come off as No. 1.

There are no second chances to get it right.

SAN JOSE, Calif. \u2014 Rawle Alkins and Allonzo Trier have their theories about who is to blame for Arizona\u2019s surprising Sweet 16 exit, and neither mentioned Sean Miller.

Even if some outsiders did.

Within minutes of Arizona\u2019s 73-71 upset loss to Xavier in the NCAA West Region semifinal Thursday night, someone updated the postseason record on his Wikipedia page with this description for 2017: \u201cYou guessed it, not the Final Four.\u201d

By midday Friday, a simple Google news search for \u201cSean Miller\u201d revealed the following headlines:

\u201cSean Miller rightly blames himself for Arizona\u2019s loss to Xavier.\u201d (Arizona Republic)

\u201cSean Miller and Arizona come up short yet again after late collapse fueled by ill-advised shots.\u201d (Yahoo)

\u201cArizona coach Sean Miller can only blame himself for the Wildcats\u2019 Sweet 16 exit.\u201d (FoxSports.com)

\u201cHas Sean Miller been a success or failure at Arizona?\u201d (The Big Lead)

On talk radio and social media, the debate was even more polarizing. A national Fox Sports radio host even called for Miller\u2019s firing, while there was also plenty of support across multiple platforms for the eighth-year UA coach, who has landed six straight top-five recruiting classes while reviving a program wracked with instability during a two-year transition from Lute Olson.

\u201cMiller is really good,\u201d USA Today college sports writer Dan Wolken tweeted. \u201cHe will break through. Arizona fans would be wise not to go nuts at this stage. Run him off, you won\u2019t do better.\u201d

Sporting News college basketball writer Mike DeCourcy posted a story Thursday night noting how UConn\u2019s Jim Calhoun was assailed for not making the Final Four in the 1990s before he won three titles starting in 1999, while writing that Gary Williams was \u201cragged mercilessly\u201d at Maryland before he made a Final Four after 23 years in 2001 and won a national championship in 2002. Then DeCourcy noted some coaches who had reached multiple Final Fours \u2014 Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams \u2014 who were criticized for not winning it all until they did.

Then there were the actual words from Miller, who said after the game that he was \u201cequally disappointed in myself.\u201d Miller said the UA lacked confidence against Xavier\u2019s zone defense \u2014 the Musketeers shifted skillfully between the 2-3 zone, 1-3-1 zone and man-to-man, as expected \u2014 and said the UA\u2019s offensive struggles bled over to the defense.

\u201cThe game never really felt good,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd that\u2019s on me.\u201d

Especially in the final four minutes, it went particularly wrong for the Wildcats. Arizona held a 69-61 lead with 3:44 left, but fell apart on both ends of the floor afterward. The Wildcats didn\u2019t score for the final 2:52, when Trier made a layup for a seven-point Arizona lead.

Here\u2019s what happened after that point:

That\u2019s five missed shots in the final 2:17, and none taken by the team\u2019s most accurate all-around shooter, Markkanen.

Trier, who had pumped in 15 straight UA points earlier in the half, had three missed shots and a turnover during that stretch.

\u201cIt happens,\u201d Trier said. \u201cI mean, I\u2019ve had a few go in and out. It was tough, especially the last one.\u201d

Trier blamed himself in a big-picture sense, saying he almost pushes himself to the point of being \u201cpsychotic\u201d about improving his game, and appeared puzzled when a Daily Wildcat reporter asked him what he thought about the questioning Miller was likely to receive.

\u201cUm, questioning a guy who had a 32-5 basketball team?\u201d Trier said. \u201cThey probably don\u2019t know much if they\u2019re questioning him from that standpoint. Coach did what he thought was best for us to put us in the best position to win the game, and we\u2019re going to go out there and try to execute as well as we can as a basketball team. So I totally have faith in my coach that he knows what he\u2019s doing, not somebody else who doesn\u2019t.\u201d

Alkins, meanwhile, didn\u2019t blame Miller or Trier or anybody for those last few minutes. To him, it was about allowing 52.8 percent shooting to Xavier and hitting only 25.9 percent from 3-point territory themselves (Alkins was 0 for 3 from 3-point range while shooting with a broken finger).

Palo verde trees are bursting into early bloom around Tucson \u2014 creating splashes of yellow desert beauty but also ushering in a season of sniffles for some allergy sufferers.

\u201cThis year is earlier than usual\u201d for palo verde blooms,\u201d said Dr. George Makol, a physician and allergy specialist with Alvernon Allergy and Asthma in Tucson.

\u201cThere is so much pollen in each tree now, and on a windy day it can blow for several blocks,\u201d Makol said.

Other plants \u2014 from ragweed and rabbitbush to ash, mulberry and olive trees \u2014 are often considered greater problems for allergy sufferers than palo verde trees. But palo verdes are flourishing in current climatic conditions and appear to be causing more allergic reactions than in the past.

\u201cWe\u2019re seeing very lush palo verde trees these days,\u201d Makol said. \u201cThe reason we see palo verdes become so lush is that there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That is what the plants breathe.

\u201cSo the palo verde is becoming a more important allergen.\u201d

BEAUTY WITH A BITE

The palo verde \u2014 with a name that means \u201cgreen stick\u201d in Spanish \u2014 is Arizona\u2019s official state tree.

It\u2019s revered for its beauty, especially during the spring blooming season \u2014 but that beauty comes with a bite for those who are allergic to its pollen.

\u201cEye itching and sneezing can be the first symptoms,\u201d Makol said. \u201cThere can also be nasal itching, nasal drip and congestion\u201d with continued exposure.

COPING STRATEGIES

Home treatments such as antihistamines and nasal sprays are available over the counter at stores, Makol said.

\u201cThey can reduce eye symptoms and nasal symptoms,\u201d he said.

For people who experience recurrent symptoms every spring, \u201cthen we look at allergy desensitization, with injections of the protein of the pollens they\u2019re allergic to,\u201d Makol said.

Staying indoors on windy days and taking care not to track plant debris into the house can also help reduce allergic reactions, experts say.

A team led by University of Arizona astronomer Christopher Walker has been selected by NASA to launch a balloon-borne observatory to study the interstellar gas in the Milky Way galaxy and the nearby Large Magellanic Cloud.

\u201cGUSTO will provide the first complete study of all phases of the stellar life cycle, from the formation of molecular clouds, through star birth and evolution, to the formation of gas clouds and the re-initiation of the cycle,\u201d said Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director in the Science Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C., in a NASA news release.

GUSTO stands for the Galactic/Extragalactic ULDB Spectroscopic Terahertz Observatory mission.

According to NASA: \u201cThe mission is targeted for launch in 2021 from McMurdo, Antarctica, and is expected to stay in the air between 100 to 170 days, depending on weather conditions.

It will cost approximately $40 million, including the balloon launch funding and the cost of post-launch operations and data analysis.\u201d

A 63-year-old Tucson man died Wednesday from injuries he sustained after his motorcycle crashed into a sign on the north side of town Sunday, authorities said.

Just before 3:30 a.m. on March 19, Tucson police and firefighters responded to reports of a serious motorcycle crash in the area of North First Avenue and East Fort Lowell Road, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a TPD spokesman.

The motorcyclist, identified as Andrew Cassells, was taken to Banner-University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, Dugan said.

Traffic detectives learned that Cassells was driving southbound on First Avenue and began to drift to the west as he approached Delano Street. His motorcycle entered a parking lot and he struck a business sign in front of 613 East Delano Street, Dugan said.

Cassells was not wearing a helmet.

Detectives say alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.

The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft didn\u2019t find any Earth Trojans caught up in Earth\u2019s orbit during its February search for asteroids, but its cameras worked better than expected in a critical test of their capability.

University of Arizona planetary scientist Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for the NASA mission to sample a primordial asteroid named Bennu, said the spacecraft\u2019s MapCam imager had a \u201cmuch higher sensitivity\u201d than it was designed to have.

The camera, built by a team of UA scientists and engineers, uses software developed by the university\u2019s asteroid-hunting Catalina Sky Survey to search the sky for faint, moving objects.

It found plenty of them in the February search \u2014 17 Main Belt asteroids in a patch of sky where the scientists predicted they would find only four. MapCam found moving objects two magnitudes fainter than its design specifications required.

\u201cOur cameras, especially MapCam, have a much higher sensitivity than we designed them to be,\u201d Lauretta said.

The fact that it found no nearby Trojans was not a disappointment, Lauretta said. \u201cIt\u2019s still a scientific result,\u201d he said.

Lauretta said his colleague Renu Malhotra, also with the UA Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, is already working with the image data sent to Earth by the spacecraft to determine what the lack of Trojans might mean. The spacecraft searched only a small percentage of the \u201ccloud\u201d where Trojans might be expected.

Malhotra had suggested the asteroid search to Lauretta because it was cruising by a stable gravitational pocket, known as a Lagrange point, where asteroids are predicted to be caught up in Earth\u2019s orbit.

Trojans have been found in the orbits of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, but only one Earth Trojan has been found.

NASA approved adding the Trojan search after UA scientists suggested adding a scientific mission to a scheduled test of the cameras.

\u201cThe primary reason we ran that activity was to rehearse the team, provide kind of a shakedown exercise,\u201d Lauretta said.

Lauretta said the rehearsal proved the team is ready for its 2018 arrival at Bennu, when those cameras will search for any objects that could lie in the path of its rendezvous.

It will return a sample of the asteroid to Earth in 2023.

* Brandon Dawkins has been the primary first-team quarterback this spring, UA coach Rich Rodriguez said. Khalil Tate mainly has worked with the second team. Rodriguez won\u2019t name a starter until shortly before the season starts but did say regarding Dawkins and Tate: \"Khalil's gotta beat him out.\"

*\u00a0Rodriguez and QB coach Rod Smith said it\u2019s natural for Dawkins to be ahead of Tate because the former has more experience. Smith said he's excited about both players but that Dawkins has a \u201cslight lead\u201d as of now.

*\u00a0Rodriguez expects Arizona's \"menu of plays\" to expand this season with both quarterbacks having another year in the system. He wants them to be \"gym rats\" in the offseason, saying it's essential for quarterbacks to be \"obsessed\" with the game. He said they're getting there in that regard.

*\u00a0Redshirt-freshman defensive end Jalen Cochran hasn't practiced this spring because of concussion issues dating to fall. \"Obviously, that's a concern,\u201d Rodriguez said.

* Tailback Nick Wilson says he weighs 212 pounds. He looks strong in his upper body. He played at 205 pounds last year. Obviously, durability is the key issue with him after two injury-plagued seasons.

*\u00a0Rodriguez said tailback Nathan Tilford is physically ready to play as a freshman. The question is whether he'll get there mentally. Being here for spring helps a lot.

*\u00a0Rodriguez said he'd like to have 10 wide receivers whom \"we have confidence in.\" To get there, newcomers Brian Casteel and Drew Dixon would have to contribute this season.

*\u00a0Rodriguez expects the next wave of new players to raise the competition and talent levels team-wide. \"It\u2019s going to be the most competitive August camp since I\u2019ve been here,\" he said.

*\u00a0Redshirt-freshman linebacker Kahi Neves entered the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility wearing a T-shirt and shorts, suggesting that he did not practice.

*\u00a0I\u2019m writing this from the lobby of LSFF, where Arizona is holding its pro day this morning. All 32 NFL teams are supposed to be here. I've seen representatives from the following teams come through the lobby: Steelers, Jaguars, Broncos, Panthers, Cardinals, Patriots, Chiefs, Seahawks, Lions, Colts, Ravens.

*\u00a0One interesting pro-day tidbit: DaVonte' Neal, who played cornerback his last two seasons here, is working out as a receiver/returner.

I see his Tucson Roadrunners jersey hanging near the home locker room, turned backward so the stitched name shows to all who pass by. It\u2019s \u201cCUNNINGHAM,\u201d all in capital letters. The jersey is there at all the road games, too, the team captain\u2019s \u201cC\u201d above the Roadrunners logo on the front.

When the team wears specialty uniforms, like last weekend\u2019s lavender version in support of cancer research, they make and display a Craig Cunningham model. The No. 14 jersey is always there, reminding all that the team captain is still there, too.

Craig Cunningham hasn\u2019t actually worn his jersey on the ice since suffering a major cardiac event on the ice on Nov. 19. It has been months of touch-and-go hospital stays, then stabilization, and now rehabilitation for the 26-year-old. An amputation took a foot, and now a prosthetic ankle and foot are in place.

Videos posted to social media recently show Cunningham up and mobile, walking with a good gait as he learns his new foot. One clip showed him walking down the TCC arena stairs last Saturday during the Roadrunners\u2019 game, tentatively at first, and then foot over foot at near-regular speed.

So don\u2019t be surprised if you see Craig Cunningham, donning his signature jersey as he walks onto the TCC ice this Saturday night to drop the ceremonial puck. It\u2019s Craig Cunningham Night for the Roadrunners as they take on the AHL Pacific Division-leading San Jose Barracuda, but it just as easily could be billed as Not A Dry Eye In The House Night.

The captain will be back, where he belongs, with his team, on the ice. No, he won\u2019t skate in the game, instead appearing as proof that his ongoing recovery is full steam ahead. There is nothing wrong with Cunningham\u2019s hearing, but he might need to get his ears checked after the game, because my guess is that the TCC faithful will scream with joy at his entrance. An extended, thunderous standing ovation will undoubtedly stretch on until Craig himself begs for it to stop.

After all, there is also a hockey game that night.

I can\u2019t remember any comparable event where so much goodwill and support has oozed publicly for a sports figure in medical peril. Dozens of former and current teammates flew to his side as he survived his still mostly unexplained heart failure and stayed with him as he slowly recovered. At practices, players are drawn to him rink-side, like a magnet.

Letters and get-well cards continue to pour in from around the globe. Other teams adopted his #CunnyCan social media hashtag. Team management didn\u2019t shy away from the fallen Roadrunner \u2014 they embraced his importance as a player and an even-more-important legacy as a leader and just plain good guy.

Craig Cunningham\u2019s health was always at the forefront of the Roadrunners\u2019 minds, but it became apparent as the weeks turned into months away that the team lost a lot more than just one of its best players.

The Roadrunners lost their ultimate leader.

\u201cYou can\u2019t replace that,\u201d coach Mark Lamb said this week. \u201cThis may sound funny, I really don\u2019t know how to put it, but nobody wants to take it (Cunningham\u2019s leadership role) because of the situation, and I really don\u2019t blame the guys.\u201d

Hockey leadership is hard to explain or define. Every team has its own character, its own needs for leadership, and the Roadrunners quickly embraced and embodied Craig Cunningham\u2019s likable, honest style.

There are other seasoned veterans on this team who have chipped in on the leadership front, but it has been said over and over by all in the Roadrunners\u2019 organization: You cannot replace a Craig Cunningham. He\u2019s a one-in-a-million hockey leader.

\u201cThere\u2019s a void there, it\u2019s the kind of a spot where you can\u2019t explain, but it\u2019s real, and you can\u2019t fill it,\u201d Lamb said.

That ultimate respect from the coaching staff, players, management, support staff and fans is the reason why earplugs will be useful at tomorrow night\u2019s game. This should be as pure and honest as group emotion can be at a sporting event.

Craig Cunningham will wear his \u201cC\u201d and join his teammates at center ice, and the crowd will roar.

\u201cYou see Cunny around here and he\u2019s doing so well, and for everything that\u2019s happened, this is going to be a great night,\u201d Lamb said.

Oh, that #CunnyCan hashtag evolved into #CunnyDid for this event.

The Craig Cunningham story isn\u2019t in the past-tense, though. He is just getting started.

Marguerita Bejarano was eight years old in March, 1961 when she accepted a ride from Cozzie Merrill Jones while walking to Roosevelt Elementary School, where she was a student. Jones was an\u00a0itinerant musician who showed up in her Tucson neighborhood near North Stone Avenue and and East Grant Road a year earlier.

Jones drove the little girl past the school and up Interstate 10, then the Casa Grande Highway.\u00a0

He pulled off at the Ca\u00f1ada del Oro Wash to let her get a drink from the stream.\u00a0Marguerita was upset, he would later say.

Marguerita called him a \"nasty man.\" She threatened to tell her teacher and the police.

Then she darted off into the water.

Jones pulled a .22 caliber revolver and shot her. He the little girl into the brush and shot\u00a0Marguerita again when she moved.

\"Murder

The body of murdered Marguerita Bejarano, 8, was found under this bridge which carries the Casa Grande Highway over Canada del Oro in March, 1961.

Jones had been doing time in Indiana for killing a 12-year-old girl when he escaped and settled in Tucson about a year before killing Marguerita.

He sat in his car and cried for an hour and a half after the murder, he'd claim later.

It wasn't until a few weeks after the killing that a man jumped off a train at the CDO Wash to get a drink of water and found Marguerita's body. The Pima County Medical Examiner said she had been molested.

\"I went to her (Marguerita's) funeral. I am the one who put flowers on her grave every other day,\" Jones recounted later.

\"Funeral

Mrs. Lazaro Bejarano had to be supported by her mother after being given a last gravesite glimpse of her slain 8-year-old daughter, Marguerita. Her father, Lazaro, is at far left.

In Dec., 1962 \u2014 nearly two years after Marguerita's murder \u2013 two men prevented Jones from kidnapping a young girl in Tempe. He got away from the men, but drove into a dead end street.

Jones busted into the home of Carl Quast, retired rancher. He kidnapped Quast at gunpoint and forced him to drive him away.

When Quast fought back Jones shot him to death and dumped his body near Casa Grande.

Police arrested Jones driving Quast's car in Gila Bend.

While in jailed in Pinal County, Jones confessed to killing Marguerita. He also admitted killing a hitchhiker in Missouri sometime after escaping from prison.

The ballistics tests confirmed the gun used to kill Quast was the same one used to kill Marguerita.

Investigators also found the car that Jones drove when he gave Marguerita a ride. It had dried blood inside.

Jones was convicted in Pinal County of killing Quast and on April 15, 1963 he was sentenced to death.

Jones took back his confession of killing Marguerita and the hitchhiker.

The Quast murder conviction was overturned by the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which ordered a new trial.

Jones was subsequently convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

In 1966,\u00a0 the Pima County Sheriff's Department lost the .22 caliber gun used to kill Marguerita and Quast, according to reports.

An indignant Sheriff Waldon Burr was still confident he had enough evidence to convict Jones.

In March 1968, without facing trial, Jones pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for killing Marguerita Bejarano. He was sentenced to a third life term.

Jones died in 1973 while undergoing heart surgery at Maricopa Medical Center.

A 68-year-old man was killed in an early morning mobile home fire Friday, the second fatal Tucson fire in five days, authorities said.

Shortly before 5 a.m., Tucson Fire Department received multiple 911 calls about a mobile home on fire in the 3400 block of North Romero Avenue, said Capt. Andrew Skaggs, a department spokesman.

One caller said he was woken up by a \"loud pop noise\" and looked outside his home to see his neighbor's air conditioning unit on fire, Skaggs said.

Fire crews saw heavy smoke as they approached the home and pulled hose lines through the front door to extinguish the flames and search for residents.

Heavy fire was reported in the back bedroom, and once it was knocked down, firefighters were able to enter the room and found the victim and his cat, Skaggs said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

It took 10 units and 25 firefighters 11 minutes to bring the blaze under control, and one firefighter was transported to the hospital for evaluation, Skaggs said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but there was no working smoke alarm inside the home.

It is hard not to be in awe of Artifact Dance Project.

The company constantly moves forward, stretching itself. Stretching us.

Take its latest, \u201cSurrounding Dillinger.\u201d

It\u2019s contemporary dance. It\u2019s theater. It\u2019s a concert. And it is, simply, astounding.

Really. This company calls Tucson home. That\u2019s kind of remarkable in a town that hasn\u2019t always been kind to dance companies who have tried to settle down in the Old Pueblo.

But back to \u201cDillinger.\u201d

This is a collaboration between Artifact and Ryanhood, the Tucson-based duo with a folksy sound. Collaboration is part of Artifact\u2019s mission, and the result is most often one of grace and substance. In this production, half of Ryanhood, Cameron Hood, worked with choreographer Ashley Bowman over two years to create the story, which begins with the birth of Public Enemy No. 1, John Dillinger, and takes us through to his death.

Rather than a series of bank robberies and shoot \u2019em ups, we learn, through dance and music, of his schooldays, his introduction to crime, his loves, his wants.

Ryanhood\u2019s music gives voice to the dance on stage, but Bowman created movements that are so expressive, so full, that the dance could be done in silence and we would still get the story.

But that would be a shame. Ryanhood\u2019s music, played live and on stage with the dancers, allowed the tale to blossom and breathe.

A character is this production is the dramatic lighting by Don Fox. The stage is bare, but his lighting suggests scenes from a claustrophobic cell to an expansive movie theater.

Dancing Dillinger is Andrew Ranshaw, tall and lean and able to convey emotion with the movement of his head and the stretch of an arm. Claire Hancock, in the role of Billie Frechette, Dillinger\u2019s love interest, is a marvel to watch. She leaps and twists with intention and fluidity.

But here\u2019s the thing about Artifact: the company is packed with dancers with talent. Not just in movement, but in expressing character and emotion. The nine dancers on stage were essential to making this production the success that it is.

And here\u2019s another thing: Artifact is not afraid. It\u2019s willing to challenge itself, and us \u2014 an essential element to good, important art.

OK, here\u2019s one more thing: Artifact is a treasure. It is a point of pride for our city. Our support is essential in order for it to keep Tucson its home, and to keep us in awe.

Gates to 39 gardens will swing open to the public during garden tours in April. It\u2019s a good time to get inspired.

WALKS AND TALKS

Meet Pima County master gardeners, who are specially trained as gardening educators, at their 18th annual tour April 1. Visits to the four west-side private gardens will include talks that help you copy what you see, as well as get some general gardening tips.

Gardening for Sauntering features four labyrinths on a 3-acre property. Native plants abound, including palo verde, saguaro, barrel, creosote and night-blooming cereus.

A loop path also ties together bridges over washes, a picnic area and benches. \u201cWe strive to have the feel of taking a walk in a desert park,\u201d according to the official description written by homeowners Helen De Lara and Kermie Hodge.

Talks at their garden will address garden tool care, potted cactus and building a labyrinth.

The other stops are:

ART AND GARDENS

Pima County master gardeners also will play a role at the Green Valley Gardeners Spring Garden Tour April 8. They will be at each of the five stops to answer questions.

One of the landscapes demonstrates how to have a garden that doesn\u2019t need any care while you\u2019re gone over the summer.

While Matt and Dick Degen are in Wisconsin for six months, their Green Valley landscape of saguaro, prickly pear, barrel, agave and other low water-use plants thrive on their own. \u201cWe plant what we know can work, and it has,\u201d Matt Degen says.

Only the bougainvillea gets drip irrigation while the couple is away, she says.

The couple plant colorful annuals to enjoy while they\u2019re in town.

The other stops will showcase:

An Art in the Park/Spring Fair at Desert Meadows Park will have plants, art and food for sale, plus music and a silent auction.

OUTSIDE AND IN

The Tucson Botanical Garden\u2019s annual Ultimate Home and Garden Tour is nearly an all-day affair April 8.

It will start with brunch at the Botanical Garden. A guided tour then will take folks to six homes, ending with a cocktail reception in a Foothills home with city and mountain views.

Two or three of the stops will include a look in historic homes in the downtown neighborhoods of Armory Park and El Presidio.

Together, the gardens are a mix of pools and water features, shady outdoor living spaces, succulent collections, antique-decorated patios and water-harvesting systems.

EDIBLES AND LANDSCAPES

The far-east-side neighborhood of Rita Ranch has a wide variety of gardens and gardeners. Some of them will show off their labors on an Earth Day tour April 22.

Visitors will see edibles grown in raised beds, in the ground and in pots. Landscapes will include wildflowers, cacti and succulents.

Hardscapes like pools, fountains and patios will reveal inviting living spaces, says organizer Elizabeth Smith. Some stops also will have rainwater harvesting, composting and vermiculture systems.

Jim Christensen and Jim Cramer\u2019s yard is a wildlife habitat certified by the National Wildlife Foundation. It\u2019s full of native plants that are allowed to grow naturally to encourage critters to stop by for nesting, feeding and resting. Birdbaths and bird feeders attract lots of finches, orioles and cardinals, says Christiansen. A rock wall lets lizards hang out in safety.

Dear Amy: My wife and I have been married for 23 years. Lately, she seems to be angry with me.

I ask her what is wrong, and she says \"nothing.\"

I feel like I am being held hostage, wondering what I did wrong.

I am almost ready to pack up a few belongings and leave and not tell her why, but I love her to pieces and would miss her.

Lately she has had a lot of health issues and she seems to be miserable all the time.

I have tried to take care of her as best I can, and she always tells me how much she loves me, but I can't remember the last time we had an intimate moment. We are both in our 60s.

I feel like I have lost my best friend and the love of my life. I just don't know what to do.

\u2014 Perplexed

Dear Perplexed:\u00a0You and your wife need to learn how to talk to each other.

Your impulse to leave without explanation only deepens the chasm between you. If you're going to leave, you should tell her exactly how you feel before you go.

Instead of asking your wife, \"What's wrong\" and taking \"Nothing\" as her answer, you should tell her how her behavior and attitude affects you.

Say, \"You seem very unhappy, grouchy and angry lately. It makes me feel like I've done something wrong. I don't want to have such an angry marriage. Can we get back on track?\" You should remind her that you are on her side.

She may tell you that when she doesn't feel well, she would rather not interact at all, but it is her responsibility to use her words.

Once you two start talking about your feelings, you should also talk about your sexual intimacy. Don't take your very long relationship for granted, and make a commitment to confront and work through your problems, even if it creates some uncomfortable moments for both of you.

Dear Amy: My father and I have always had a rocky relationship. He punched me, body slammed me and choked me when I was a teenager and living with my parents.

He's been an alcoholic my whole life. He lashes out at everyone around him. He understands he has an addiction but will argue with anyone who confronts him about it.

I moved out soon after I turned 18 because I couldn't stand living in the same house as him.

I am now 22, with a baby. I live with my fiance.

I usually spend time with my parents on Saturdays because I don't work and want to get out of the house.

Last Saturday, my father and I got into an argument and he ended up throwing my daughter's stuff into the yard. He proceeded to curse me out.

He has told my mother to not have any contact with me and to not let me into their house.

My dad's birthday will be coming up in a month and I do not plan on joining my family for the party. They pressure me to make amends.

Is it wrong of me to distance myself from my family because of something like this? Is it understandable that, until my dad gets help for his alcohol addiction, I do not want to be around him?

\u2014 The Black Sheep

Dear Black Sheep: You can give your daughter a better childhood than you were granted. Your instincts are great, and I urge you to marshal your strength and resolve to stay away from your family, at least for now.

Rather than spend time with your volatile and violent father, here are some things you can do on Saturday mornings:

Pack your coffee and meet a friend at the park to push your babies in bucket swings; go to your local YWCA or community center for baby swim or gym classes; head to the public library for Saturday story time.

Saturday mornings can be lonely for full-time parents. Engaging in group activities designed for parents and babies are a great way to meet and make friends. This could change your life dramatically.

Here's one more thing for you to do: Attend Al-anon (or another addiction support group) meetings (al-anon.org). You need help to see where you fit in your family system.

Let people who have walked your path, walk alongside you and your daughter. I'm pulling for you.

Dear Amy: I have disabilities that cause me to have a tough time using the standard stalls in the women's restroom.

I have to use the \"handicapped\" stall due to its size and the height of the commode, along with the grab bars. I also take water pills, so when I gotta go, I gotta go.

Every so often I have had to wait for a young person with obviously no difficulties to get done using the stall.

It really peeves me off when I have to wait!

Is it wrong for me to get so annoyed with people's inconsiderate behavior?

\u2014 Disabled in P-Ville

Dear Disabled: The stalls are there so that you, and any other person with special needs, can safely use a public toilet. If all the other stalls are occupied, anyone should use the larger stall in order to move the line along. That stall needn't stand empty, waiting for a disabled person.

These stalls are also useful for parents with young children, older people who use grab bars, anyone with a suitcase or stroller or large people.

Yes, if there are other stalls available and an obviously able-bodied person is occupying the handicap stall, you have every right to be annoyed.

If all the stalls are occupied, you should queue in front of the handicap stall door (because that is the only stall you can safely use). Yes, you may have to wait, but sometimes, that's just how things work out.

The kindest thing is for anyone in a bathroom queue to let anybody who has a greater need go first.

Dear Amy: Brava for your compassionate response to the judgy person signing her letter \"Worried,\" who was upset because her friends took in a teenage boy with nowhere else to go.

Long ago, I was that kid. I went to live with our neighbors, and without them, I would not have made it.

\u2014 Grateful

Dear Grateful: \"Worried\" was concerned about the possibility for sexual misconduct in the household because of the boy's presence. There is without question an elevated risk, but this should not be an automatic assumption.

SAN JOSE, Calif. \u2013 After the Arizona Wildcats ended their season short of the Final Four again, Allonzo Trier was asked what he thought about the questioning Sean Miller might receive ahead.

He seemed puzzled, even as somebody appeared to be\u00a0updating Sean Miller\u2019s postseason record on Wikipedia\u00a0at about the same time.

\u201cUm. Questioning a guy who had a 32-5 basketball team?\u201d Trier said. \u201cThey probably don\u2019t know much if they\u2019re questioning him from that standpoint. Coach did what he thought was best for us to put us in the best position to win the game, and we\u2019re going to go out there and try to execute as well as we can as a basketball team. I totally have faith in my coach that he\u2019s knows what he\u2019s doing, not somebody else who doesn\u2019t.\u201d

The Sporting News\u2019 Mike DeCourcy also offered some perspective about Miller\u2019s track record.

FWIW, my Twitter notifications in the immediate few hours after the game included a \"Fire Miller,\" \"his teams are predictable,\" \"team's intelligence level unacceptable,\" \"what's up with his poor timeout management\" and \"Miller will never reach a Final Four.\"


Miller actually put a lot of the blame on himself during his podium interviews after Thursday\u2019s game. Miller spoke of the Wildcats\u2019 inability to defend well, especially down the stretch, and their lack of confidence against the zone, and talked about his role in it all.

\u201cEqually disappointed in myself,\u201d Miller said. \u201cYou know, our team never really ever established great confidence against the zone. And I think in some ways that was the reason, defensively, that we weren\u2019t as good as we usually are, because the game never really felt good, and that\u2019s on me.

\u201cYour job when you get to this area, when you get to this level of college basketball, your best players have to be confident. We have to get them shots. I don\u2019t care what defense they\u2019re playing \u2013 1-3-1, 2-3, man-to-man \u2013 I don\u2019t feel we did that tonight. And that\u2019s the worst feeling you can have as a coach.\u201d


Here's the full podium comments from Miller, Kadeem Allen and Parker Jackson-Cartwright. Xavier's are here.


Sounded like Miller had a pretty uplifting postgame locker room talk, with virtually all of the players repeating his reminder that they did, after all, win the Pac-12 Tournament and (tie for) the Pac-12 regular season title, while winning 32 games.

\u201cWe had a great year,\u201d Rawle Alkins said. \u201cWe had an historical year.\u201d

Lauri Markkanen sat looking downbeat but tried to keep that in mind, too.

\u201cWe went through a lot this year, so of course we have to think about all the good things we did,\u201d Markkanen said. \u201cIt\u2019s just sad the season ended so we can\u2019t go to Phoenix.\u201d

Allonzo Trier discussed that point at more length.

\u201cWe had a great year, a tremendous year,\u201d Trier said. \u201cA year that will have a lot of memorabilia and history that will be in McKale, on the walls and in the locker rom. It\u2019s just tough because we all had our sights on the Final Four.

\u201cThat was what we talked about and we believed it. We knew it was something we could do and then our journey kind of got cut short. We knew it wasn\u2019t going to be easy. We weren\u2019t going to walk there. Nobody was going to let us go to a Final Four just because it\u2019s in Phoenix. It doesn\u2019t work like that.\u201d


Markkanen and UA's other players who are considered potential early departures this spring all declined to comment on their plans or decision processes ahead. UA players are normally off-limits for the most part in the offseason so face immediate questioning after their last game.


Our full coverage is attached to this post as are the box score and final stats.

Thanks again for reading this season. The news isn't going to slow down for a while this spring, so please stick around ...

SAN JOSE, Calif. \u2013 Given the best possible NCAA Tournament path to a home-state Final Four appearance, the Arizona Wildcats dropped the ball Thursday night.

Or, rather, couldn\u2019t shoot the ball well enough to keep from blowing an eight-point lead in the final four minutes.

Second-seeded Arizona was upset 73-71 by 11th-seeded Xavier in the West Regional semifinal on Thursday while allowing the Musketeers to shoot 52.8 percent and missing three key shots in the final minute that might have tied or won the game.

After Dusan Ristic missed a heavily contested 10-footer with 51 seconds left and Sean O\u2019Mara scored inside to give Xavier the final two-point lead with 22 seconds left, Kadeem Allen missed a 15-foot jumper and Allonzo Trier missed a three-pointer with eight seconds left at SAP Center.

Each of those shots was at least somewhat contested by Xavier\u2019s ever-changing defense, so it was the Wildcats\u2019 defense that stuck heavily in the mind of UA coach Sean Miller. Not only did the Wildcats struggle to defend the crafty Musketeers much of the game, but they most critically allowed 3-pointers by Trevon Bluiett and Malcolm Bernard in the final 3:25 that put Xavier back in the game.

\u201cWhen you have teams fighting to stay alive, you have to jump,\u201d Miller said. \u201cYou have to run at them. You have to close out with great effort. You have to make them miss.\u201d

They didn\u2019t. The Wildcats only missed their shots, surprisingly even getting the last miss from Trier, who was so hot in the middle of the second half that he scored 15 straight points after a cold first half.

But just getting the Wildcats in a position to take the eight-point lead, and maybe advance to the West Region final, wasn\u2019t enough for the hyper-competitive Trier. He was upset about the last miss, and the loss, and wasn\u2019t about to consider anything else.

\u201cWe just lost the game,\u201d Trier said. \u201cThere\u2019s no other way to put it.\u201d

The loss ended UA\u2019s season at 32-5, while Xavier moved to 24-13 and into a region final Saturday against Gonzaga for a spot in the Final Four. For the Musketeers, the win avenged their 68-60 loss to Arizona in the 2015 Sweet 16.

\u201cIt feels good just to be able to kind of get that revenge that we have been looking for,\u201d Bluiett said. \u201cAnd, two, just to make it to the Elite Eight. It\u2019s been a while since the program has done it. And just to get back there it\u2019s a surreal feeling.\u201d

It was only the third time Miller has ever lost to a lower seeded team in the NCAA Tournament, but the second straight year, after sixth-seeded Arizona was bounced by 11th-seeded Wichita State in the first round last season.

Bluiett led Xavier with 25 points on 9-for-17 shooting, scoring 18 of his points in the first half.

Trier finished with 19 points while Ristic had 17. Lauri Markkanen had nine points and eight rebounds but only took nine shots, many of which were closely guarded by Xavier\u2019s ever-changing defense.

\u201cThey played really well defensively,\u201d Markkanen said. \u201cI did not get a good shot. They\u2019re a really good team.\u201d

Arizona built its eight-point lead with 3:44 remaining but a 7-0 run pulled Xavier into a 71-71 tie entering the final minute. After Ristic missed his 10-footer with 51 seconds left, Bluiett had the ball at the top of the key \u2013 but instead of driving or popping a 3, he sharply passed under the basket to O\u2019Mara who made what became the game-winning layup.

\u201cFortunately, Sean was able to catch a great pass by Tre and put it in,\u201d Xavier coach Chris Mack said.

UA had trouble at times throughout the game. The Wildcats trailed by two points entering the final seven minutes, but went on a 12-0 run to take a 67-61 lead, getting 3-pointers from Trier and Kadeem Allen during the run. Two free throws from Parker Jackson-Cartwright gave UA its eight-point lead before Xavier made its stretch-run comeback.

After Arizona took a two-point halftime lead, Xavier had gone on a 7-0 run early in the second half. The Musketeers hit 6 of 8 shots immediately after halftime, prompting Miller to call a timeout with 15:22 left.

UA went on a 7-0 run to take a 52-48 lead, but with 13 minutes to go, Allen and Bluiett were called for offsetting technical fouls after they had an animated conversation.

After the technicals, Bernard hit a 3-pointer and Quentin Goodin dunked to put Xavier back ahead 53-52 entering the final 11 minutes.

At the end of the first half, Rawle Alkins hit a 12-foot jumper just before the halftime buzzer to give Arizona a 37-35 halftime lead.

Alkins, who was playing with a broken index finger, missed his first four shots of the half.

He said the finger didn\u2019t bother him throughout the half, and tried to be upbeat afterward.

\u201cWe had a great year, and it just takes one loss for everyone to forget what we did all year,\u201d Alkins said. \u201cWe won the Pac-12 championship, the Pac-12 Tournament, and 32-5. We had a historic year for the team.

\u201cOf course we wanted more. But overall, it was a good season.\u201d
