    On February 1 the season changed for No. 3 Arizona. That day may have been capped by a 60-58 loss at Cal, but the biggest loss was that of sophomore Brandon Ashley. Ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a broken foot, Ashley was one of Arizona’s most versatile players on both…

  5. Arizona to use a deeper rotation in the coming weeks

    Feb 18, 2014, 2:43 PM EDT

    Before Brandon Ashley got hurt, when Arizona was still undefeated and the No. 1 team in the country, the Wildcats were not a deep team. They played a seven-man rotation. Jordin Mayes saw some minutes here and there, but for the most part, it was the starters, Gabe York and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson that played for…

  6. Offensive struggles prove costly for No. 2 Arizona in Tempe

    Without arguably their most versatile offensive threat in sophomore forward Brandon Ashley, it was clear at the time of his season-ending injury that No. 2 Arizona had some important adjustments to make. Ashley’s injury robbed the Wildcats of a player capable of scoring both inside and out, and that personnel hit was something Arizona would…

    ashley

    In the first half of No. 1 Arizona’s 60-58 loss at Cal late Saturday night, sophomore forward Brandon Ashley went down with a right foot injury. Given how well the San Francisco native has played for the Wildcats this season, to lose Ashley for an extender period of time would be a major blow for…

    One of three remaining undefeated teams in college basketball, No. 1 Arizona was faced with a challenge in the form of the Colorado Buffaloes on Thursday night.

    One of the things that we often forget when watching celebrities and sports stars on TV is that once the camera shuts off and the final buzzer sounds, those people revert back to being, well, regular people.
