Roundup: Who had the better dunk for Arizona?
New Mexico State kept it close for a while last night, but Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s dunk highlighted No.1 Arizona’s victory, 74-48 over the Aggies (here’s video of the slam). That wasn’t the only tight throw-down in the game, because Nick Johnson turned in a 360 dunk as well (my vote is for Rondae for better dunk of the game, but both were pretty dope).
The 2013 season that turned out to be an award-winning campaign for Austin Seferian-Jenkins almost didn’t happen. Here’s a great read from Gregg Bell on ASJ telling teens that he felt he was invincible before his DUI, as it was his idea to speak to a group of high schoolers about his one-man car crash and subsequent day in jail for driving under the influence. Great writing here from Bell – very much worth the few minutes.
Congratulations to former Utah football assistant Jay Hill for accepting the head coaching job at Weber State, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. He was the second-longest tenured coach on the Ute staff, behind only Kyle Whittingham himself.

Also, if you missed “The Drive” last night, you better check out David Shaw explaining his coaching philosophy ahead of the Pac-12 title game. Hashtag genius.
Yesterday, the Pac-12 Networks released its baseball and softball TV schedule, and as such, here is when you can watch the Sun Devil baseball and softball teams on TV.
Look, I know I’m doing a ton of in-house links today, but it’s hard not to click on something that says WSU’s Mike Leach talks “Breaking Bad” addiction, Geronimo and more.
Missed this from earlier in the week, but if you’re itching to see the Golden Bears football team back in action, you’ll only have to wait another 4.5 months: The 2014 Cal football spring game is April 26 and will be televised on your favorite network (hint: It starts with a “P” and ends in “ac-12 Networks”).
A lot of things have gone right for the Buffs in their nine-game winning streak, and you can attribute at least some of the 9-1 start to Spencer Dinwiddie emerging as a leader.
As the ninth-tallest team in NCAA Division I hoops, Oregon State men’s basketball plans to pound the paint “until someone stops us.”
