  1. Pac-12 basketball is rocky right now

    Myron Medcalf

    Dana Altman endured a weird season. His Oregon Ducks were 13-0, but then they began to struggle. That unblemished mark preceded a mudslide that dropped Oregon to the bottom of the Pac-12 standings after a 3-8 start in league play. The Ducks recove...

  2. Look back, look ahead: Pac-12

    Myron Medcalf

    Sean Miller seemed to have every tool necessary for the Arizona Wildcats to make a push for the national title as the 2013-14 season approached. His talent pool was so rich that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a former McDonald's All-American, was a reserve...

  5. Tournament preview: Pac-12

    Myron Medcalf

    The Pac-12 has followed the script for the most part. Entering this season, anyone could recognize Arizona's perch atop the conference with McDonald's All American Aaron Gordon joining one of the nation's best frontcourts. Steve Alford, meanwh...

  6. Top 10 Clutch Performers

    Myron Medcalf

    It's March. Championship Week begins Friday, and we're less than two weeks away from the Big Dance. We'll probably see a multitude of thrillers, overtime games and clutch performances in the coming weeks. At least, we hope we will. With the gam...

  7. A conversation with Johnny Dawkins

    Myron Medcalf

    In his sixth season with the program, Stanford's Johnny Dawkins is trying to position his team to reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2008. Saturday's 83-74 victory over No. 23 UCLA certainly boosted the Cardinal's chances. Dawkins' sq...

  8. A conversation with Herb Sendek

    Myron Medcalf

    Herb Sendek entered the season hoping to lead his Arizona State squad to its first NCAA appearance since 2009 and second since 2003. With Jahii Carson returning and Penn State transfer Jermaine Marshall in the mix, it seemed feasible. An early Pac-12...

  9. Big shot validates Cobbs' transfer

    Myron Medcalf

    BERKELEY, Calif. -- Somewhere in that sea of yellow, he was stuck. Justin Cobbs couldn't breathe. The curse of victory for a young man who wasn't wild about being swallowed by a crowd after Cal's 60-58 upset win over No. 1 Arizona on Saturday. But...

  10. Weekend Homework: Arizona on the road

    Myron Medcalf

    If there are any weaknesses on this Arizona roster -- and there are few -- then they can all be summed up like this: Sometimes even the best have bad nights, especially on the road. That's the only legitimate explanation for what happened to No. 1...

  11. Weekend picks: Villanova over Syracuse?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, I went 3-2 again last weekend. I missed Michigan State-Texas, obviously. I thought the Longhorns would thrive on the comforts of its home floor and their growing confidence following a win over North Carolina the previous week. But sometimes, i...

  12. Weekend Picks: Texas over Michigan State?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, this isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Yet. We're a long way from March. So I'm sure I'll miss a bunch. But in last week's picks, I was accurate on every game except Iowa-Iowa State. That Cyclones-Hawkeyes matchup was one of the best...

  13. Weekend picks: U-M takes down Arizona?

    Myron Medcalf

    In last week's predictions, I "called" Baylor over Kentucky, but I missed Missouri over UCLA and Colorado over Kansas. It happens. It will continue to happen, I'm sure. I'll get a few right (maybe) and I'll miss some. Either way, you all will let ...

  15. Tarczewski, Ashley key for Arizona vs. Duke

    Myron Medcalf

    Arizona is not the Aaron Gordon show. The entertaining, explosive and skilled forward might be the addition that helps the Wildcats win the Pac-12 and make a run in the NCAA tournament. But his presence enhances a frontcourt that boasted two promi...

  16. Gordon belongs with top freshmen

    Myron Medcalf

    Aaron Gordon doesn't belong in a box. That much was obvious as he diced up San Diego State in No. 6 Arizona's 69-60 road win over the Aztecs on Thursday night. As the Wildcats began to unravel in the final minutes -- most of the team's starters ha...
