TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — After making basketball look easy for the first four games of the season, Arizona’s star freshman trio of Nico Mannion, Zeke Nnaji and Josh Green wasn’t quite as dominant Thursday night. But with about a minute left and the game still in doubt, the 6-foot-3 Mannion shook a defender, drove down the center of the lane and threw down a spectacular dunk over South Dakota State’s defense. It might have been the lone moment of basketball beauty from the 14th-ranked Wildcats all night. But it was enough for a hard-fought 71-64 victory over South Dakota State. “We don’t want to have a loss to wake us up,” Arizona senior Chase Jeter said. “Coming out and having to battle against a team like South Dakota State just lets us know that every team is going to compete, we have to be ready for every opponent and treat every game the same.” Arizona (5-0) trailed for much of the first half and by three at halftime.

A faculty member who claims the University of Iowa denied her a full-time position because of her conservative political views may have her case retried, a judge determined last week. After deliberating for three days, a jury determined that UI’s law school — where part-time writing instructor Teresa Wagner had sought full-time employment — had not discriminated against Wagner’s political views. But the jury was unable to decide whether her equal protection rights had been violated, leading the judge to declare a mistrial.Stephen Fieweger, an attorney for Wagner, objected to the way the verdict was reached, according to the Des Moines Register. “What happened is exactly what I feared: The jury that is coming down to the deadline got, in my opinion, a coerced order for a verdict and it happened after a time that I had been informed that there would be a mistrial on both counts,” he said. If her objection is overruled, Wagner plans to appeal. The … [Read more...] about University political bias lawsuit ends in mistrial, can be brought again

Winning the Big Game means a ton to Cal and Stanford players, coaches and fans. Winning the Big Game decisively and then spending the final minutes of the fourth quarter savoring not only that victory but the realization that the win has put your team in the Rose Bowl … well, former Stanford quarterback Todd Husak vividly and enthusiastically can recall the Cardinal’s 31-13 victory 20 years ago. “There were more exciting and compelling games,” Husak said in a phone interview Tuesday, “but I think that last five minutes and that locker room afterward was as good as it gets — and that’s why guys play college football.” That Husak and his teammates got to celebrate Stanford’s first trip to Pasadena since the 1971 season rates as an unlikely story in and of itself. The Cardinal went 3-8 in 1998 and then opened the 1999 season with a thud, a 69-17 loss at Texas. “We looked at it as we can either learn from it or let it sink … [Read more...] about Big Game Memories: Stanford QB Todd Husak, teammates clinched Rose Bowl bid in ’99
The 49ers’ biggest strength has been weakened. And the timing isn’t ideal: On Sunday, they’ll face a quarterback with one of the strongest resumes in NFL history. The 49ers (9-1) will enter their showdown against the Packers (8-2) and Aaron Rodgers with notable attrition along their vaunted defensive line. On Sunday, Dee Ford, their Pro Bowl edge rusher, was likely lost for multiple games with a hamstring injury. On Nov. 11, Ronald Blair, their top edge rusher off the bench, sustained a torn ACL. Ford and Blair have combined for 9.5 sacks and nine QB hits this season for a defense that’s tied for the NFL lead in sacks (39). So who will fill the void? The 49ers are hoping it will be Damontre Moore, 27, who was signed last week and is on his fifth team since 2015. In a league where teams are starved for capable pass-rushers, Moore had been unemployed since the 49ers released him Aug. 31. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) passes as San Francisco … [Read more...] about With 49ers’ injuries, will their rush get to Packer QB Aaron Rodgers?
