Tennis tourney picks up holiday slack for Tucson

With Tucson’s loss of football’s Copper Bowl, and the holiday Fiesta Bowl basketball classic at McKale Center — the UA will not be playing a home basketball game during the holidays for only the fourth time since 1984 — the enduring game in town over the holidays is tennis. The USTA Winter N…

Fiesta Bowl likely not to sell out

Fiesta Bowl likely not to sell out

It would be a shock if the Fiesta Bowl, Arizona vs. Boise State, is played before a capacity crowd. Tickets are simply too expensive, but the Broncos report they have sold $1.5 million of their $1.9 million ticket allotment, which means you can expect almost 12,000 to 15,000 BSU fans. Arizon…

Sean Miller chooses new outfit

Here’s hoping Sean Miller’s wardrobe change, eschewing a tie, will trigger a fashion change in college basketball. Too many coaches wear $2,000 designer suits in a game played by sweaty college kids and watched by people in casual attire. College football figured it out years ago; former Ari…
