Underrated Wildcats: Rob Refsnyder was centerpiece of Arizona baseball’s 2012 national championship run

Photo by Harry How/ Few athletes in modern Arizona Wildcats history can say they ended their collegiate careers in storybook fashion. Haley Moore is one. Miles Simon is another. Throw in Taryne Mowatt as well. Then there’s Robert Refsnyder. A junior outfielder on the 2012 national championship team, Refsnyder put together a remarkable College World Series performance, batting .476 (10-21) over six games and delivering the series-clinching run. Refsnyder entered the postseason as a well-known commodity in college baseball. He batted .352 as a junior and recorded 63 RBIs and 12...

Review: ‘The Scheme’ is much ado about nothing (new) for Arizona coach Sean Miller

Photo by Chris Coduto/ It doesn’t help his cause, but it doesn’t make it any worse We didn’t get March Madness this year, but that didn’t stop Arizona Wildcats fans from getting a little taste of that familiar NCAA Tournament anxiety a few weeks ago. When Yahoo! Sports reported on March 17 that a documentary was coming out about the FBI’s mostly failed attempt to solve college basketball corruption, the vast majority of UA fans probably had a “here we go again” moment. And based on the article, it looked like this could be really bad for Sean Miller and the men’s...

A way-too-early look at Arizona softball’s 2021 roster now that seniors can return

Malia Martinez and Jessie Harper | Photo by Ryan Kelapire With the NCAA voting Monday to grant spring student-athletes an extra year of eligibility, it means the Arizona Wildcats softball team will be absolutely stacked in 2021 now that they can bring back six star seniors who otherwise would have exhausted their eligibility. But wait, there’s more! Arizona is also set to welcome the No. 1 recruiting class, which consists of eight signees. (You can read all about them here.) Here is a way-too-early position-by-position breakdown of Arizona’s 2021 roster. For now, we will assume all...

Pac-12 basketball roundup: ASU, Colorado players enter NBA Draft, USC picks up another transfer

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The Pac-12 was on pace to get as many as seven teams into the NCAA Tournament this season had the coronavirus pandemic not put a halt to all things sports earlier this month. And while it was pretty much a given the Arizona Wildcats were going to be losing a bunch of talent to the NBA, turns out other Pac-12 squads are poised to deal with the same exodus to the pro game. ASU junior guard Remy Martin announced Monday he had declared for the 2020 NBA Draft, a move that has the complete backing of coach Bobby Hurley: I support Remy as he pursues his...

Arizona contacts Rice transfer Trey Murphy, a 3-point marksman

Photo courtesy Rice Athletics The Arizona Wildcats have targeted a ton of transfers this offseason, and a lot of them have one thing in common: they can shoot the heck out the ball. Rice wing Trey Murphy III is their latest target, and he certainly fits that bill. The 6-foot-8 sophomore averaged 13.7 points with the Owls this season, shooting 37 percent from 3. Murphy hoisted 204 3-pointers, more than seven per game. He also averaged 5.5 boards per game, starting in 23 of the 29 games in which he appeared. As a freshman in 2018-19, Murphy shot 42.1 percent from 3. Other schools...
