Photos: T.J. McConnell, Arizona's very own 'bulldog'

Before he added 25 pounds of muscle and earned his scrappy canine nickname from Nick Johnson, Arizona Wildcats point guard T.J. McConnell was an unassuming, scrawny kid. But the bulldog was always inside, as evidenced by a first-team Pac-12 All-Defensive Team selection, his Pac-12 leading assist-to-turnover ratio and a second-team selection to the all-Pac-12 squad in his first go as a member of a major conference team. Check him out all the way back to a time when he and Johnson went at it as foes on the court.
