UA Men's Basketball

READERS' PICK: Ho hum, another stellar season for the fellas in relatively short pants; another first-team All-American player (Jason Terry); and (gulp) another first-round exit in the NCAAs. But this time nobody really got that mad. The Cats are young, talented and poised for another run at the national title next year. It's absoLUTEly amazing how this entire town rests comfortably in the shadow of a man whom none of the rest of us looks like, dresses like, or thinks like.

READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: With all due respect to the many basketball fans out there, do y'all realize that the UA Men's Football Team had the best season in the school's history? They went 12-1 overall, and 7-1 in the Pac-10; beat Nebraska in a bowl game; smacked ASU up again; and finished fourth in the country. This year they have a legitimate shot at winning the mythical national championship. But if they get that far, it'll be during basketball season, so many of you may not notice.
