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.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Flyers have had many pleasant surprises during their surge toward the playoffs, but none has been bigger than the offense provided by Radko Gudas. After failing to score in his first 57 games this season, the burly defenseman went into Saturday with five goals in the last 10 games. "To tell you the truth, I was surprised when he couldn't buy a goal," winger Jake Voracek said before the Flyers faced Arizona on Saturday night. "When you see him in practice and see him in the games, he finds a way to put the puck through.

If you're looking for a midwinter break with a twist, consider a dude ranch in southern Arizona. With sunny days and cool clear nights, the area offers glimpses into the Arizona Territory of years gone by, when the likes of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were becoming legends. Dude ranches have evolved from the days when working cattle ranches hosted a few paying guests from back East to help with ropin' and ridin'. Modern guest ranches still raise cattle, but they offer comfortable lodging, gourmet meals, and as much (or little)

Toeing the foul line with less than 30 seconds remaining, and a win over a national power on the line, is a tall order for any high school basketball player. But on Thursday in Mesa, Ariz., Archbishop Wood's Matt Cerruti never capitulated. The junior connected on a pair of free throws with 20 seconds remaining to lift the Vikings to a 56-54 win over Mountain Ridge (Ariz.) in a Visit Mesa Challenge boys' basketball game. Mountain Ridge is the top-ranked team in Arizona and the 20th-ranked team in the nation, according to Maxpreps.

A MONTH AGO, Jaylen Watkins was an uncomfortable reminder of a really poor Eagles draft. He was toiling on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad, after having been selected by the Birds in the fourth round in 2014, then cut before the start of this season. On Saturday, Watkins might be lining up opposite DeSean Jackson or Pierre Garcon as the Eagles try to keep their playoff hopes alive against Washington. Watkins ended up playing 49 defensive snaps Sunday night against Arizona, after both Eagles starting corners, Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe, left the game in the first half with injuries.

Writer Daniel Nester says that if he gets a bit full of himself, "a little 'Shader' appears on my shoulder to cut through the pretension. " "Shader" is South Jersey-speak for a native or resident of Maple Shade, the proudly unpretentious Burlington County burb that provides the title and much of the setting for Nester's pungent new memoir. "Being a Shader is about being no-nonsense and having a blue-collar outlook," Nester, 47, says from the College of St. Rose in Albany, N.Y., where he is an associate professor of English.

Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was sentenced to an 18-day jail term Friday morning in Gilbert, Ariz., according to the website TMZ sports.

A police report said McNabb hit a car that was stopped at a traffic light and a police report later said that McNabb's blood-alcohol content was 0.17, more than twice the Arizona legal limit of 0.08.
