Kansas couldn't erase the memory of last spring, but the Jayhawks did the next best thing. They beat Arizona for a small measure of revenge. "I feel a lot better with this being Arizona. Last year, they ripped our hearts out. It was a devastating loss. We watched the tape just to scout Arizona and it was difficult," Raef LaFrentz said after carrying the second-ranked Jayhawks to a tense, 90-87 victory over No. 4 Arizona last night in the Great Eight in Chicago, which features the final eight teams from last season's NCAA Tournament.

Arizona was a unanimous choice as the nation's No. 1 college basketball team in the United Press International poll released yesterday and a near- unanimous choice in the Associated Press rankings. The Wildcats (24-3) collected all 41 first-place votes from the UPI board of coaches and 61 of 66 from the AP's panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. La Salle nearly broke into the polls for the first time this season. The Explorers finished 21st in the AP voting. They also received votes from the UPI board, but totals are not included in that poll.

No sooner had Alabama coach Wimp Sanderson praised the effort the Crimson Tide had set forth against Arizona in the NCAA West Regional and called it a "great win," - no sooner had he spoken those words - when someone asked what he planned to do to stop Loyola Marymont on Friday? Shaking his head in wonder at the 149 points Loyola had scored against defending NCAA champion Michigan - and the 260 points it had totaled in two tournament games over the weekend - Sanderson sighed and said, "I hear the guy who was punching the numbers on the scoreboard is soaking his fingers in ice. " Sanderson paused in thought and added: "They are awfully hard to defend.

The Soul suffered a crushing 64-57 loss in the closing seconds Saturday after the Rattlers intercepted a Dan Raudabaugh pass in their own end zone and then drove the length of the field to score the winning touchdown on a 1-yard plunge by quarterback Nick Davila. More than 7,000 fans at the Wells Fargo Center saw the Soul surrender a 15-point lead to Arizona in the fourth quarter after a dominating defensive performance. "We did a lot of good things today both offensively and defensively," said Soul coach Clint Dolezel.

Arizona got a scare, until Miles Simon came along. The junior guard scored nine points in a 22-4 run in the final 7 1/2 minutes as the No. 4 seeded Wildcats overcame a 10-point deficit and beat South Alabama, 65-57, last night in the first round of the Southeast Regional. Simon finished with 11 points. The rally allowed Arizona (20-9) to avoid losing in the first round for the fourth time in six years. "We knew that it was going be a war," Arizona coach Lute Olson said.

Arizona has the dubious distinction of being the No. 2 seed in the regional in which Nevada-Las Vegas is the No. 1 seed. That means the two teams might meet in the West Regional final next week in Seattle. But for now, Arizona, which will play 15th-seeded St. Francis (Pa.) tonight, is the top-seeded team for the first and second rounds being played here. Arizona and Seton Hall seem to be the best two teams at this site. Arizona (26-6) was sent here because the first two rounds in the top West bracket are at the Wildcats' home court in Tucson.

Matt Williams, the last of the original Diamondbacks and a five-time All-Star with 378 career home runs, has played his final game for Arizona. The Diamondbacks announced yesterday that the third baseman has been designated for assignment. The move follows the team's acquisition of third baseman Shea Hillenbrand from Boston for pitcher Byung-Hyun Kim. "With the trade for Hillenbrand, it became apparent there just wasn't going to be any meaningful playing time for Matty," general manager Joe Garagiola Jr. said.

The rabid New Mexico fans had been grumbling as new coach Fran Fraschilla got off to a slow start. A 70-68 victory at Arizona should quiet them for a while. "We were 5-5 in here and people were down on us, even in our own city," New Mexico's John Robinson said. "This will help us a great deal. " No kidding. The third-ranked Wildcats had won 37 in succession at home, the fourth-longest streak in major college basketball. "It's just a great win for what has also been a storied basketball program at New Mexico," Fraschilla said "It's a great win for our players because they've got a new coaching staff, and it's a great way to move into the next part of Lobo history.

Memo to Jim Harrick, Phil Martelli, and everyone else who thinks Arizona leads an unduly charmed college basketball life: The Wildcats are in the Sweet 16. Playing about two hours from home, the Wildcats fed off the energy of their fans - who made up more than half of the sellout crowd of about 14,000 at the University Activity Center yesterday - and blitzed Iowa, 87-73, in the second round of the NCAA West Regional. The Wildcats (25-6) advanced to the regional semifinal in Denver.

THE BEST quality that Nick Foles the competitor had going for him in college? For Mike Stoops, who coached the Eagles quarterback throughout most of his career at the University of Arizona, that's a layup: toughness. "He would sit in there and throw it, no matter what," said Stoops, who was the Wildcats' head coach from 2003 through the first six games of 2011, Foles' senior season. "He didn't care how much you came after him. We threw it a lot. So everyone knew they had to hit him. And they did. Nick just stood his ground and did what he had to. I don't think people always saw that in him. "And he never said a word.

THE ONLY THING more discouraging for Phillies fans eager to see the current season come to an end is the dearth of major league-ready talent in the minor leagues. Pitchers Aaron Nola and Jesse Biddle could be ready for the big leagues at some point in 2015, but not in April. After power-hitting corner infielder Maikel Franco, there isn't a prospect realistically expected to compete for a job at big league camp next spring. But shortly after the 2014 season ends, a ray of hope within the lower levels of the minor league system will be on display out west.

SOUL RUNNING back Derrick Ross was named first-team all-AFL for the fourth consecutive season. Ross, the league's all-time leading rusher, broke his own team record this season by running for 36 touchdowns. Ross should get consideration for the league's offensive MVP award, though Arizona quarterback Nick Davila is probably the favorite. The remainder of the AFL's awards will be announced next week ahead of the Aug. 23 championship game between Cleveland and visiting Arizona.

CARLOS RUIZ entered the fourth week of the 2014 season hitting .204 without an RBI in 14 games. A week later, the Phillies catcher has been honored as the National League's Player of the Week. In the six games he started in Los Angeles and Arizona, Ruiz hit .500 (11-for-22) with a .593 OBP. Both numbers led all of baseball for the week. Ruiz began the week by going 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and four RBI in a 7-0 win over the Dodgers last Monday. He ended it by knocking in one run and scoring another in the eighth inning of a 6-5, come-from-behind win in Arizona on Saturday.

AFTER SITTING out last season, former Constitution High standout Savon Goodman has committed to Arizona State. The 6-6, 215-pound forward started his career at Nevada-Las Vegas, where he averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 27 games as a freshman in 2012-13. However, he left the school following an arrest in which he later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor petty theft and trespassing. Though he did not play basketball, Goodman spent last season at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa.

In the grand Gonzaga vision, Arizona would have gotten such a game from the Zags in their round-of-32 game in San Diego on Sunday night that perhaps they'd feel a little fear about a face-losing defeat as a No. 1 seed. Fear? The Zags mostly saw only fastbreaks, buzzing past them. And relentless defense. The top-seeded Wildcats ran the eighth-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs out of Viejas Arena, winning, 84-61, to advance to the NCAA regional semifinals up the freeway in Anaheim. "We love playing defense," freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said.

THE SOUL played Arizona and lost a close game. This is not a recording. For the sixth time since 2011, the Soul squared off against the Rattlers. And for the sixth time, they have come up empty. This time, Philadelphia lost, 62-55, in overtime at Arizona in Saturday's season opener. Arizona, which has beaten the Soul in the last two championship games, scored on its first possession of the overtime and ended the game when Jeremy Kellem intercepted a Dan Raudabaugh pass. Arizona forced OT when Nick Davila hit Tyson Poots with a 34-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds left and won it after Davila found Poots again from 14 yards out in overtime.

TO CHRISTINE Flowers: I think you are right. I am totally against sodomy in all of its forms and had to place myself in the shoes of those in Arizona who can't conscientiously serve homosexuals. If I had a service of some kind in the state, I couldn't do anything that would encourage or express any approval of this form of sexual perversion. (I would say the same about fornication, adultery and pedophilia.) I suppose that I could be sued and put out of business. And this is probably true in many or most other states.

WHEN advocates of same-sex marriage pushed their case in the courts of both public opinion and law, they made sure to read the following language from that little card provided to them by the tolerance police: "No one will be forced to violate their religious beliefs if Adam can marry Steve and Madame can marry Eve.

Nick Johnson scored 22 points, helping top-ranked Arizona pull away from Utah, 65-56, Sunday night for its school-record 20th straight win. Arizona (20-0, 7-0 Pac-12) struggled early in both halves before a deciding second-half run. The Wildcats offset a 3-for-14 night from three-point range with 20 offensive rebounds that led to 19 second-chance points. Utah (14-6, 3-5) kept it close before wearing down in the closing minutes, unable to keep the Wildcats off the glass or from scoring inside to remain winless on the road.
