2013-01-20T00:00:00Z Sports shorts: UA's Scott tosses TD pass for West in Shrine victoryStaff And Wire Reports Staff And Wire Reports Arizona Daily Star

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott had a 57-yard touchdown pass and helped the West beat the East 28-13 in Saturday's East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Scott played just 15 snaps, all coming in the second quarter, but he completed three of four passes for 81 yards and ran once for 5 yards. His TD pass went to Mississippi State's Chad Bumphis. Scott, who threw for 3,620 yards and 27 touchdowns as a senior, is rated as the ninth best QB prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft by nfldraftscout.com.

Wildcats receiver Dan Buckner, who was also on the West, didn't have any catches in the win.

UA center Kyle Quinn played left guard for the National team, which beat the American 34-0 in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Calif. UA's Taimi Tutogi was scheduled to play, but was not on the final roster.

• When Notre Dame star Manti Te'o ordered two dozen white roses delivered to 21503 Water Street in Carson, Calif., he says he thought they were headed to the home of his dead girlfriend, Lennay Kekua. In fact, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man implicated as the ringleader of the false-identity girlfriend hoax, and his relatives had lived in the bungalow, according to public records and interviews with neighbors. Te'o said he was later contacted by Tuiasosopo, 22, and that the man had admitted to masterminding the scam.
