11/20/14 - Arizona Wildcats are rolling right now, currently sporting a 2-0 record. They are looking to do big things this season, and their last game couldn’t have gone any better against CS Northridge. The final score ended up being 86-68. They dominated the last quarter, and a huge reason for their success was thanks to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. He went on to score 14 points with 8 rebounds. He set the tempo early for them, and a lot of his success was due to his tenacity to dive after loose balls. They will need more of this energy from him in their next outing to come away with the victory. The Wildcats defense also played tough for all quarters, preventing CS Northridge from getting easy buckets. Up next for them is a game against UCI. They are heavily favored, but will still need to maintain their production on the offensive end. Tickets for the game can be bought now, which start out at $24.
11/10/14 - One of the best teams in the nation last year was the Arizona Wildcats. Last season, they had a stellar 33-5 record, leading the Pac-12 standings. It was a season unlike any other for them, a season where they went on to the Final Four. They didn’t come away with a championship, but they will be hoping this season turns out different for them. Their season opener will be against Mount St Mary’s, a game that shouldn’t be that difficult for them. Currently, they are the 2nd ranked team in the nation, and they will be looking to hold onto this ranking through March. Their keys for victory for Friday night’s game will be to get their guard, Gabe York, heavily involved in the offense. He sets the tempo for the team, along with forward Craig Victor. Tickets for next week’s game can be purchased now, and the starting price for them is around $19.
2/7/14 – The Cats dropped a close effort on the road against Cal last Saturday, ruining their chances at a perfect season and slipping from the No.1 spot to No.2 in the AP Poll. Not only did the Wildcats lose the contest, but they lost sophomore Brandon Ashley to a broken foot. After the forward and his Arizona teammates spent eight straight weeks at the top, things began to look grim for the Cats. In an effort to try and rally behind their team, Arizona fans gathered at the McKale Center Thursday for the evening’s matchup against the Oregon Ducks which they knew would be another tough test for their Wildcats. With their support however, the traditional powerhouse grinded out a victory and came from behind to get the win over preseason Top 25 Ducks. Arizona needs to refocus before they head into their eight remaining conference games. Still with a convincing lead in the Pac-12, the Wildcats have just three games left this season at home: Oregon State Beavers (avg. $64), a rematch against the California Golden Bears (avg. $80), and Stanford Cardinal (avg. $80).
1/2/14 - The Arizona Wildcats are undefeated on the season, and flying high atop the AP Top 25. The Wildcats have been an unstoppable force, consistently beating teams by wide margins of at least 25 points in the last couple weeks, save Michigan, who they squeaked by 72-70 to remain perfect. Missing center Kaleb Tarczewski from a sprain, the Wildcats have fared well without the 7-footer, but are hoping to get him back before conference play starts after the New Year. They’ll open up Pac 12 conference play against Washington State for just $34 to get-in. Can the Wildcats pull off an undefeated year? With Oregon, Colorado and UCLA being their most daunting division opponents on schedule, a flawless season is doable. Get your cheap Arizona Wildcats tickets and be there to watch this team hold onto the top spot!
10/28/13 - Formidable Pac-12 champions, the Arizona Wildcats are groomed for another banner year. Despite a fantastic start to last season leading up to Pac-12 Championship with Final 4 hopes and a 14-0 record, the Wildcats plummeted, losing half of their conference games and falling to arch rivals UCLA thrice (losing the Pac-12 title) and were ultimately eliminated by Ohio State in the Sweet 16. They will be looking for redemption this year with their dominating and experienced line up.
