Arizona baseball suffers first loss vs. Minnesota, ending nation’s longest winning streak

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports Arizona baseball scored 11 or more runs in all three games of a season-opening sweep against Albany last weekend, but the offense came to a screeching halt on Monday at Tempe Diablo Stadium. The Wildcats fell to Minnesota 5-2 for their first loss of the season, ending a 13-game winning streak dating back to last season, the longest in the nation. Arizona (3-1) did not get on the board until the sixth when Ryan Holgate and Jacob Blas cut the deficit to 3-2 with back-to-back RBI doubles. The Wildcats had a chance to tie it or take the lead, but Blas got...

Arizona moves up a spot in AP Top 25 after sweeping Washington schools

Photo by Jacob Snow/Icon Sportswire via Not quite in the Top 10 but getting closer The Arizona women’s basketball team is peaking at the right time. With only three weeks until the postseason, the Wildcats have moved up a spot to No. 11 in the AP Top 25, their highest ranking of the season and their best mark since the 1997-98 campaign.

Arizona returns to AP Top 25 after Bay Area sweep

Photo by Larry Placido/Icon Sportswire via The Arizona Wildcats’ roller coaster of a season is back on the upswing after sweeping Cal and Stanford in the Bay Area. The Wildcats (18-7, 8-4 Pac-12) returned to the AP Top 25 this week, checking in at No. 24 in the poll after spending last week unranked. Arizona has alternated being between being ranked and unranked in each of the past four weeks. However, the Wildcats have remained pretty steady in the NET and KenPom ratings, where they rank 8th and 13th, respectively. BracketMatrix.com, which compiles the NCAA Tournament bracket...

Arizona baseball defeats Albany 11-3, sweeps season-opening series

Photo courtesy Arizona Athletics If Arizona baseball’s first series of 2020 is any indication of how the rest of the Wildcats’ season is going to play out, head coach Jay Johnson and company will be very happy come May. Albeit against a lesser opponent, Arizona dominated its three-game set against Albany to open the year, outscoring the Great Danes 38-10, outhitting them 40-16 and racking up a ridiculous 43 strikeouts. The Cats struck out just 17 times themselves. Despite being closer than the final score indicated (Albany left 14 guys on base), Sunday’s series finale was no...

Arizona dominates Washington State for 21st victory of the year

Photo by Jacob Snow/Icon Sportswire via Punching first is something Adia Barnes and her players talk about often. On Sunday afternoon, that’s exactly what the Arizona Wildcats did. The Washington State Cougars didn’t quite know what hit them out of the gates in the 72-57 Arizona victory. After a strong night from the 3-point line on Friday night, Arizona started just where they left off on Sunday afternoon. By the 6:33 mark, three Wildcats had already connected from outside. Sam Thomas was one of them, already on her way to one of her best games of the season. Thomas had 18 points...

Arizona hosts Washington State: What to expect, how to watch

The Arizona Wildcats have five games left in the regular season. All of them are winnable. Yes, including the Feb. 28 game againt No. 8 Stanford. Winning means getting into the NCAA Tournament and likely even hosting a few games. “I wouldn’t have thought we’d be in a situation where we know we’re going to be in for sure,” Arizona coach Adia Barnes said. “And we’re not there yet because we have five games to go, but there’s a really good chance if we take care of business. So, I just tried to narrow our focus and think one game at a time.” The first of those five is...

Arizona baseball routs Albany for 12th straight win

Photo by Peter Aiken/ Well, so far, so good for Arizona baseball in 2020. In what was the second of a three-game series to open the new season, the Wildcats blew out the Albany Great Danes 15-0 Saturday night at Hi Corbett Field. The combination of strong start from sophomore righty Quinn Flanagan and an explosive offensive performance powered the Cats to a 12th straight win dating back to last season. Flanagan got the win on the mound, setting a career high in strikeouts with 10 and allowing just two hits and two walks over the course of a 7-inning appearance. Freshman righty Wesley...
