The Arizona Wildcats quietly will resume practices tonight in advance of their Pac-12 opener on Jan. 2 against Washington State, with their players and coaches unavailable for comment until sometime next week.

But all other Pac-12 teams will be holding a final game tuneup this weekend and, in Washington's case, a pair of them.

In case you're interested in watching them, here's the schedule (all times MST):


UC Irvine at ASU, noon, Pac-12 Networks

St. Katherine at Utah, 2 p.m., Pac-12 Networks

Furman at California, 4 p.m. Pac-12 Networks

Georgia at Colorado, 8 p.m. Pac-12 Networks

Alabama at UCLA, 8 p.m., ESPN2

NBCSports looks at how UA might do in the New Year with free throws and bench production.

Even though he's playing for a 1-11 team -- instead of a 13-0 one -- Grant Jerrett is making improvement with Tulsa. His 66ers will be on YouTube tonight at 6 p.m. against Austin.

Three WSU newcomers are making their moves, though the Cougars' record hasn't shown it so far.

With Dominic Artis back, Oregon's backcourt is stronger than ever.

UA recruiting target Bennie Boatwright threw down 38 points.

We had a short update on Jordin Mayes if you missed it. And, while not basketball-related, Greg Hansen wrote about the life of UA hurdler Lezo Urreiztieta.
