Arizona Basketball is Back—and the Fans Can’t be Happier

Posted By on Thu, Nov 7, 2019 at 11:56 AM

McKale Stadium - LOGAN BURTCH-BUUS
  • Logan Burtch-Buus
  • McKale Stadium
If you’ve attended an Arizona Wildcats basketball game over the past two decades, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve met Robert Wagner.

Wagner has been a steadfast presence at Arizona sporting events, serving as an usher at men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as working football and softball events.

Wagner is a tall and amiable gentleman, with a trademark mustache that’s occasionally dyed various shades of red and blue.

His path to joining the University’s athletics department began two decades ago, after the former Tucson Fire Department employee shattered his leg when his motorcycle was hit by a semi.

Wagner was told he’d never walk again, but willed himself to do just that, thanks in part to taking on a role as an usher at Arizona Stadium in 2000.

“They told me I’d never walk again, so I came to [then-University of Arizona Assistant Athletic Director] Suzy Mason and said, ‘I need a job Suzy, I need to walk.’ They hired me in 2000 to work football and now I do football, softball, women’s volleyball, women’s basketball,” Wagner said. “I love it. It keeps me young; it keeps me moving and being around the kids is a blast.”

Wagner has worked a host of athletic events, but said he feels most at-home inside the friendly confines of McKale Center, a venue he’s been intimately involved with for more than four decades.
His time inside the palatial basketball arena dates back to 1983, when his adult league team used to scrimmage against then-coach Lute Olson’s roster during the hall of fame coach’s first season in Tucson.

Wagner and his longtime ushering colleague, Barry Scofield, were inside the venue for the Wildcats’ home opener against Northern Arizona University, which the Wildcats won in a walk, 91-52, last Wednesday, Nov. 6.

The pair have worked together for eight years, with Scofield coming over from Kino Stadium where he ushered for the city’s former AAA baseball team, the Tucson Sidewinders. Before that, he had a long career in the Navy and with Boeing, where he built some of the company’s most well-known aircraft.

A former member of the Blue Angels demonstration team, Scofield has seen a lot of highs and lows in his eight seasons as an usher, including Pac-12 regular season championships in 2014, ’15, ’17 and ’18.

The highlight for the former Washington State resident is the people he’s met along the way, many of whom he’s on a first-name basis with.

“I enjoy mingling with the season ticketholders as they come through and I’ve gotten to know them and it’s always good to see them,” Scofield said. “I enjoy the people, I enjoy helping them, I enjoy being around them. I enjoy solving their problems for them. I treat them like I would my family.”

Two of those regulars include John and Linda DeCastro, who sit midway up the upper concourse level of section three.

The couple are second-year season ticketholders, receiving the golden tickets from their son and daughter-in-law.

The DeCastros were the first people to arrive in their section last Wednesday night, settling into their plush seats about 90 minutes prior to tipoff.

Attending Arizona home games has been a rite of passage for both members of the DeCastro family for decades, as Wildcat basketball is a way of life for the family.

The couple agreed that the pageantry of college basketball is what they love most about attending games. They enjoy watching the Pride of Arizona pep band launch into its setlist and actively scout players from both teams to see who’s hot and who’s struggling with their shot.

Both believe the Wildcats will be much improved from a year ago, when the team suffered through a 17-15 season, missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012.

Their faith looked rather prescient last Wednesday, as the Wildcats shellacked an overmatched Lumberjacks team, with 6-foot-11-inch freshman forward Zeke Nnaji scoring 20 points to lead the team to a one-sided romp.

“I think they’re going to have a really successful season this year and I’m glad that we’re going to be here to see it happen,” John said. “We were basketball fans before we got these seats, but we’re really, really big fans of Arizona basketball now.”

Home court advantage


Arizona coach Sean Miller, who’s entering his 10th season in Tucson, praised the likes of John and Linda after Wednesday’s game.

Miller said announced crowd of 12,960 gave his players a jolt of energy, allowing them to come out hot and bury the Lumberjacks early.

“We had a great crowd here on opening night,” Miller said. “All you need to do is look around America and you see that the opening game, especially on a weekday, isn't always filled.

“I'd like to thank them for showing up and being as active as they were. It was exciting to return to McKale. And our players feed off of that. This is a magical arena and I think all of us feel a great sense of pride to perform well and to play with great effort because of the crowd and the tradition that we have here.”

Nnaji admitted to being a bit awestruck at first by the crowd, before acquiescing and thriving off their collective energy.

“It was great,” he said. “It was so fun to make a big play or getting a defensive stop and hear the crowd cheering you on. I think just gave everyone extra energy.”

Longtime Arizona employees like Wagner and Scofield can attest to the effect that the McKale Center crowd can have on opposing teams.

A glance at the school’s record book will tell you that the Wildcats have won 602 of their 709 games at the arena, which opened its doors in 1973.

The uniqueness of McKale Center, according to Wagner, is its ability to bring together a ravenously passionate fanbase that spans age groups.

The veteran usher believes the fanbase in Tucson is among the best in the nation, which makes his role all the more entertaining.

“I feel very fortunate to be alive and in McKale,” Wagner said. “Every game’s great, every game’s exciting. They’re fun to be around. They keep you young.”

All Bets Are On, Volume 36: On Grant Gunnell's Chance at Quarterback For Arizona, Pac-12 Superlatives and CFB picks for the Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Oct 25, 2019 at 1:19 PM

All Bets Are On returns for its 36th episode to discuss Arizona's football game against Stanford, the Pac-12 as a whole and the week's best games in college football.

Co-hosts Christopher Boan and Tyler Vondrak begin Friday's show by handing out their picks for Saturday's contest in Palo Alto, with each giving their take on whether Khalil Tate or Grant Gunnell should start at quarterback.

The duo then steered into the Conference of Champions, with the Pac-12 Superlatives segment, picking the best games in conference play this weekend.

The final segment of Friday's show handles the games that Boan and Vondrak are keeping an eye on, varying from the lowly Sun Belt to the SEC and Big 12.

Stacking the Pac: Why McKinley Wright and the Colorado Buffaloes Will Win the Pac-12 Title

Posted By on Thu, Oct 24, 2019 at 1:28 PM

screen_shot_2018-08-29_at_3.14.06_pm.png
We're 13 days away from the official start of the 2020 college basketball season in Tucson, when the Arizona Wildcats host in-state foe, Northern Arizona inside McKale.

The Wildcats, who missed the NCAA Tournament a year ago for the first time since 2012, feature a stacked roster this year, with five-star recruits Nico Mannion and Josh Green highlighting the new arrivals list.

The Pac-12 as a whole should be much-improved over a year ago, with Colorado, Washington and Oregon all featuring fearsome starting fives.

The road to college basketball perdition is long and winding, especially in the 'Conference of Champions,' with four teams that could contend for a league title.

I've taken it upon myself to produce a comprehensive ranking of the 12 teams in the conference, since I wasn't in attendance at Pac-12 media days earlier this month.

Without further ado, here's how I see Larry Scott's athletic emporium stacking up on the hardwoods of the west this season:

1. Colorado Buffaloes (21-12, 10-8 in 2019)

Key returnees: McKinley Wright IV (13.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals per game)/Tyler Bey (13.6 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.2 blocks per game)

The Buffaloes earn their way atop this list, simply because of the talent that Wright and Bey possess, with each being strong contenders for conference player of the year. The Buffs are looking to make the Big Dance for the first time since 2016 and should be in good shape to do so under the illustrious leadership of coach Thomas Martin 'Tad' Boyle, who has one of the strangest names in college basketball. It pains me, as a Colorado State alum, to say anything nice about CU, but they should be a helluva team this season.

2. Arizona Wildcats (17-15, 8-10 in 2019)

Key returnees: Chase Jeter (10.9 points, 6.6 rebounds per game)/Ira Lee (6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds per game)

Key arrivals: Josh Green (five-star shooting guard), Nico Mannion (five-star point guard), Zeke Nnaji (four-star center), Christian Koloko (four-star center)

The Wildcats enter the 2019-20 regular season with a vastly improved lineup, thanks to the addition of Green and Mannion in the backcourt and the loss of ineffective guards like Brandon Randolph, who shot a woeful 38.4 percent from the field while averaging 1.3 turnovers per game last season. The biggest question for Sean Miller's team this year will be whether their depth will be enough, with injuries and personnel issues being a constraint in the meat grinder that is today's college basketball schedule. I'm pretty high on the Wildcats' chances this year, considering that the Pac-12 media poll has them slotted to finish fourth, but believe the likelihood of a deep run in March will come down to how well fab freshmen like Green and Mannion mesh when the season gets underway.

3. Oregon Ducks (25-13, 10-8 in 2019)

Key returnees: Payton Pritchard (12.9 points, 4.6 assists, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 steals per game)

Key arrivals: N'Faly Dante (five-star center)/CJ Walker (five-star power forward)/Addison Patterson (four-star guard)/Chandler Lawson (four-star power forward)

There's no stopping the machine that Dana Altman has built in Eugene apparently, as the Ducks marched their way to the Sweet 16 a year ago, despite losing superstar recruit Bol Bol to a stress fracture early in the year. The Ducks pummeled Wisconsin and California-Irvine in the Dance, before succumbing to eventual champs, Virginia, 53-49 in the Sweet 16. The Ducks could very well win the Pac-12 this year, with the fourth-ranked recruiting class in the nation coming in and the wily leadership of Payton Pritchard in the backcourt. I'm going to slot the Ducks in the third spot, despite them being anointed the preseason favorite by my media cohorts, because I don't think their core will come together until the latter half of conference play. Don't fret, Ducks fans, as I think Oregon will once again hoist the Pac-12 Tournament hardware in the Sin City next March.

4. Washington Huskies (26-8, 15-3 in 2019)

Key returnees: Nahziah Carter (8.1 points, 2.4 rebounds per game)

Key arrivals: Isaiah Stewart (five-star center)/Jaden McDaniels (five-star power forward), RaeQuan Battle (four-star shooting guard)

It was quite a year for Mike Hopkins and the Huskies in 2019, winning the Pac-12 regular season title, while beating Utah State in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies lost their top-four scorers to either the NBA Draft or graduation, but reap the benefits of the nation's 11th ranked recruiting class, with two five-star talents coming to Seattle. The Huskies should be quite formidable this year, with Hopkins' zone defense flustering opponents all year long. The only reason Washington is this far down on my rankings is their lack of experience, combined with the names ahead of them in the conference pecking order. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Hopkins leads the Huskies to the top of the conference again this year. It also wouldn't surprise me, however, if the team bottoms out and misses the tournament, because of their lack of veteran leadership. It'll be an interesting year in the Emerald City, with a talent-laden roster and a solid coach leading the way in Seattle.

5. University of Southern California Trojans (16-17, 8-10 in 2019)

Key returnees: Nick Rakocevic (14.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.4 blocks per game)/Jonah Matthews (12.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists per game)

Key arrivals: Isaiah Mobley (five-star power forward)/Onyeke Okongwu (five-star center)/Max Agbonkpolo (four-star small forward)

No team in the Pac-12 faces more pressure, outside Arizona perhaps, than the Trojans, who have missed the tournament in each of the last two years. This year's team returns 6'11 tour de force Nick Rakocevic, who tormented Arizona a year ago in Los Angeles. The arrival of five-star power forward Isaiah Mobley will be interesting, as he'll immediately provide the Trojans a complement in the paint they sorely lacked a year ago. The Trojans have all the talent needed to compete for a Pac-12 title this season, but I'm not convinced Andy Enfield is a good enough coach to lead them there.

6. Oregon State Beavers (18-13, 10-8 in 2019)

Key returnees: Tres Tinkle (20.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists per game)/Ethan Thompson (13.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists per game)

The Beavers are facing a 'now or never' moment under sixth-year coach Wayne Tinkle, having made the tournament once since arriving in Corvallis. This might be the Beavers' year to do just that once again, with Wayne's son, Tres, returning for his senior year in the Willamette. Tinkle and fellow upperclassman Ethan Thompson will need to come up huge for the Beavers, who play a piss-poor non-conference schedule, if they're going to make the tournament. There's no reason the boys from Corvallis can't run the table in the nonconference portion of the year, with home games against Iowa State complimented by tournament games against Oklahoma and road clashes with Wyoming and Texas A&M as the only real challenges for the Beavers. I expect Tinkle's team to gain a lot of confidence from their early slate of games, leading to a better than expected year for the team, with an NCAA Tournament berth being a real possibility.


7. Arizona State Sun Devils (23-11, 12-6 in 2019)

Key returnees: Remy Martin (12.9 points, 5.0 assists, 3.2 rebounds per game)/Rob Edwards (11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds per game)/Romello White (8.7 points, 5.2 rebounds per game)

Key arrivals: Jaelen House (four-star point guard)

I'm low on the Devils, in large part because I'm not convinced that they can survive the gauntlet without the likes of Lugentz Dort and Zylan Cheatham, both of whom left early to go to the NBA. I think that Bobby 'F-cking' Hurley has done enough to warrant attention in Tempe, but don't see the Devils' soft nonconference slate doing them any favors come conference play. The home showdown between the Devils and Saint Mary's Gaels on Dec. 18 will be fascinating, as it'll tell us whether the team's for real or not. I expect the Devils to have another fast start, but to once again flame out when the going gets tough down the stretch.

8. Stanford Cardinal (15-16, 8-10 in 2019)

Key returnees: Daejon Davis (11.4 points, 4.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds per game)

Key arrivals: Tyrell Terry (four-star point guard)

The Cardinal just can't seem to get over the hump in the Pac-12 under coach Jerod Haase, who's in his fourth season in Palo Alto. The Cardinal have only finished over .500 once in his first three years on The Farm, that being the NIT championship-winning team in 2018, and looked anemic as hell in a disappointing 2019 campaign. The Cardinal lost leading scorer KZ Okpala to the NBA, which will definitely hurt their offensive production this year. Stats wiz Ken Pomeroy has Stanford as his 90th ranked team in the nation, which is about where I see The Cardinal finishing this year. It might be time to consider another coaching change in NorCal if things don't get better soon.

9. UCLA Bruins (17-16, 9-9 in 2019)

Key returnees: Prince Ali (9.6 points, 2.7 rebounds per game)/Shareef O'Neal (DNP in 2019)

Key arrivals: Jaime Jaquez (four-star small forward)

Out with the old (Steve Alford) and in with the new (Mick Cronin) in Westwood, as the Bruins yet again try to capture magic in a bottle after a disappointing decade in SoCal. Cronin, who was the Bruins' safety pick to their backup pick in the offseason, comes to UCLA after a successful 14-year run at Cincinnati, where he went 296-146 with two conference titles in that span. The Bruins wanted a splashier hire, as per usual, but were turned down by the likes of John Calipari (Kentucky), Billy Donovan (Oklahoma City Thunder) and just about everybody else with a pulse. The Bruins return a talent-depleted roster and should be pretty mediocre this year, but that's why they play the games folks! The actuality of UCLA's mediocrity won't be known for a good long while, so let's sit back and watch the Bruins' neurotic fanbase eat its own, as is tradition.

10. Utah Utes (17-14, 11-7 in 2019)

Key returnees: Timmy Allen (12.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists per game)

Key arrivals: Rylan Jones (four-star point guard)

The Utes haven't made the NCAA Tournament since 2016 and have pretty much failed to live up to expectations in the three years since. Coach Larry Krystkowiak (or Larry K, as we'll call him here), is still the highest-paid coach in the conference, raking in $3,572,500 a year, according to USA Today. That averages out to $23,048.39 per win, which is a terrible bargain for the fine taxpayers of Utah. Don't be surprised if Larry is on the curb after this season, as I don't see the Utes doing anything on the court to be proud of this year.

11. Washington State Cougars (11-21, 4-14 in 2019)

Key returnees: CJ Elleby (14.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists per game)

Welcome to Pullman, Kyle Smith! Smith comes to the Palouse after resurrecting a moribund San Francisco Dons team, leading them to three-straight 20-win campaigns. He'll need an extra strong dose of magic in what's considered by many to be the toughest Power Five coaching job in the land, as the Cougs' don't have a lot of resources and virtually no recruiting base to pull from. Expect CJ Elleby to be the team's lone offensive force, coming off an impressive season as the team's number-two offensive option behind Robert Franks in 2019.

12. Cal Bears (8-23, 3-15 in 2019)

Key returnees: Paris Austin (11.6 points, 4.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds per game)/Matt Bradley (10.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists per game)

Speaking of unenviable coaching jobs, how about we break down what might be the worst Power Five program in the country? Well, welcome to Berkeley Mark Fox, who was fired at the University of Georgia, only to find his way to an even less-desirable coaching gig. The Bears lost leading scorer Justice Sueing, as he transferred to Ohio State, and will rely on returning players Paris Austin and Matt Bradley to usher the team forward. I don't expect them to have much success, however, as the Bears are in a deep hole that will take several years to dig out of. Where have you gone, Ivan Rabb? The Golden Bears turn their lonely eyes to you (or Jaylen Brown, for that matter).

All Bets Are On, Volume 33: On California's NIL Bill, Arizona's Clash With Colorado and Pac-12 Superlatives

Co-hosts Christopher Boan and Tyler Vondrak return for a college football-centric version of All Bets Are On.

The dynamic duo start by breaking down California's 'Name, Image and Likeness' bill, better known as SB206, which allows NCAA student-athletes to profit off the use of their names, their image in commercials/ads and the use of their images in media, with Boan and Vondrak giving their take on the proposal.

The dynamic duo then moves on to preview Arizona's clash with the University of Colorado in Boulder, in a matchup of 3-1 teams.

Grant Gunnell Carries Arizona Past UCLA, 20-17

Posted By on Mon, Sep 30, 2019 at 8:51 AM

Freshman quarterback Grant Gunnell threw for 351 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's 20-17 victory over UCLA on Saturday, Sept. 28 - MIKE CHRISTY | ARIZONA ATHLETICS
  • Mike Christy | Arizona Athletics
  • Freshman quarterback Grant Gunnell threw for 351 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's 20-17 victory over UCLA on Saturday, Sept. 28
The tide of Saturday's Arizona-UCLA football game shifted on the pinpoint precision of prodigal freshman quarterback, Grant Gunnell.

Gunnell, who finished Saturday's clash with UCLA, which the Wildcats won, 20-17, with 352 passing yards, one passing touchdown, and perhaps most importantly, zero turnovers.

Gunnell, who wasn't made available to the media on Saturday night, hit his biggest pass of the night on a wheel route by running back Darrius 'Bam' Smith, resulting in a 75-yard touchdown to give Arizona a 17-13 lead with 8:17 left in third quarter.

Sumlin said that Gunnell, who made a spot start for Khalil Tate, who missed Saturday's contest with a hamstring and ankle injury, handled the situation as well as possible.

"The first thing you look at with a true freshman quarterback is, the number one thing was poise. How he handled the situation," Sumlin said. "I thought, he was very mature about how he handled things, how he went about his business."

The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0) sealed their victory on Saturday in the waning seconds of the contest, when UCLA junior kicker, JJ Molson, missed a 38-yard field goal that would have tied the game.

The win is the Wildcats' first over the Bruins since the 2017 season.

"It's a team effort. It's always, I got to say it all the time, we were more about us than the opponent and I think we've learned a lot about each other," Sumlin said. "...We tried to get our best players on the field and give our team the best opportunity to win. And that's what coaching is all about."

The theme of the night amongst Sumlin's players revolved around the player that never spoke, with offensive and defensive stalwarts singing Gunnell's praises.

Redshirt senior wideout Cedric Peterson, who finished with three catches and 44 yards on Saturday, praised Gunnell's ability to stay in the moment on Saturday, sparking the team's surge on Saturday.

"He did great man. He had to step up. He knew what he had to do. That's how the offense, we had to make sure that we were all on the same page for him," Peterson said. "It was his first game he showed great strides. So we're proud of him."

Perhaps the greatest surprise of the night was the play of Arizona's defense, which held UCLA to 445 yards, while forcing a turnover in the win.

Junior linebacker Tony Fields II, who had 10 tackles in the team's win on Saturday, said the Wildcats' effort on Saturday night was one of the best that he's seen in his three years in the desert.

"I believe it was one of our off best all around as a full team game, I've seen since I'm in Arizona, I feel like everybody stepped up," Fields said.

Looking forward

The Wildcats will look to extend their three-game win streak on Saturday, when they travel to Boulder to face the University of Colorado.

The game, which will kick off at 1:30 p.m. Tucson time, is the Wildcats' first trip to the Centennial State since 2017, when Arizona beat Colorado, 45-42.

Perhaps the greatest memory from the team's 2017 trip to the Front Range was Tate's 327 rushing yard performance, a record for Football Bowl Subdivision quarterbacks.

Saturday's contest will be carried by the Pac-12 Network.
