Still searching for its first win in the Pacific 10 Conference, USC's basketball team plays Arizona tonight at Tucson. After ascending to the No. 1 spot in the polls last week, Arizona lost at Oklahoma, 82-80, Sunday, and fell to No. 2. "If I were voting this week, I'd still put them as the No. 1 team in the country," USC Coach George Raveling said. "And I'm not just saying that because we're playing them. I don't think they'll lose another game for the rest of the season.

This is Tucson's Mt. Rushmore, where two heads are better than four. An enlarged head shot of former Arizona coach Lute Olson was waved by a fan during Pac-12 Conference tournament games in Las Vegas last week. The guy next to him held aloft a similar-sized mug of current Wildcats Coach Sean Miller. A picture says 1,000 words? These two said job security. Miller came to Tucson in 2009 to find a program that had been in disrepair since Olson retired. The Wildcats were 40-29 in the two previous season and made the NCAA tournament both years, but that was not good enough for Arizona basketball.

TUCSON - He held her in an upright position against his chest to keep her from drowning in her own blood and applied pressure to her head wound. It was then that Daniel Hernandez Jr. remembered a television show he watched when he was 10 years old. It was about brain injuries and he knew he had to keep Rep. Gabrielle Giffords engaged. He kept asking her questions, such as whether she knew she'd been shot. She'd reply with a squeeze of the hand, move two fingers or give a thumbs up. His actions on Jan. 8, 2011, helped save Giffords' life and thrust Hernandez, then a 20-year-old intern for the Arizona Democrat, into the national limelight.

Two illegal immigrants were shot to death by camouflaged gunmen northwest of Tucson in an incident evoking a pair of 2007 attacks, Arizona authorities said Wednesday. One of the victims was identified as Gerardo Perez-Ruiz, 39, of Toluca, Mexico. The second man remained unidentified but was thought to be from Guatemala. They were among a group of 20 to 30 people riding in the bed of a Chevy truck on Sunday when men with rifles ambushed them, Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Dawn Barkman said in an interview.

It's more than a little ironic that the same Arizona Legislature that spearheaded a ruthless, racially charged campaign against illegal immigrants also banned K-12 ethnic studies classes on the grounds that they promote hatred and division. Who knew Arizona's Republican majority, as expert as it is at hyperbole and invective, was so committed to fostering healthy race relations in the Grand Canyon State? Last month, after a court fight against the ban, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District pulled the plug on its Mexican American studies program, which teachers say was designed to help middle school and high school students navigate in a complex, multiethnic world.

TUCSON -- U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Tucson region have saved 177 people during the last 30 days in the southern Arizona desert as summer temperatures have reach perilous levels, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. Officials said agents rescued 52 of the 177 just in the last week, when temperatures soared near 110 degrees Fahrenheit.  The recent rescues by the Tucson sector of the Border Patrol reflect a larger trend. Agents from the sector have performed 372 rescues during the current fiscal year.
