Arizona men’s basketball beat Utah 67-63 and Colorado 88-61 on the road. Freshman Aaron Gordon finished with a career-high 23 points and junior guard Nick Johnson finished with 20 points Saturday night against the Buffaloes. Arizona improved from No. 4 to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 poll.

Despite its first loss of the season on Thursday, Arizona softball bounced back in the Mary Nutter Classic and won its last three games of the tournament. Arizona beat UNLV 14-1 in the final game Sunday.

Three Phoenix Coyotes players won medals at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Mike Smith became the first Coyote to win an Olympic gold medal after earning it with Canada, Oliver Ekman-Larsson won the silver with Sweden and Lauri Korpikoski won the bronze with Finland.

No. 17 Arizona gymnastics was upset in Tempe, Ariz., on Saturday by No. 22 ASU, 195.350-196.125.

A completely new lineup on the bars and uncharacteristic errors were a factor in the loss, according to Ryden.

Former Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey got to show his talent at the NFL Combine on Sunday.

The Phoenix Suns saw their three-game winning streak end on Sunday when they lost to the Houston Rockets 115-112. The Suns have the opportunity to recover from the loss tonight when they play the Minnesota Timberwolves.
