Luke Walton had one of his best games of the season against ASU. The senior's injured ankle looked very healthy, due in large part to a week's worth of rest in between games. Walton was much more mobile in scoring 23 points and ripping down 10 rebounds. For one of the first times all season he was able to attack the hoop and back down opponents.


University of Arizona women's basketball player Katrina Lindner will miss the remainder of the 2002-03 season after tearing the ACL in her left knee, announced head coach Joan Bonvicini on Wednesday. The redshirt freshman guard suffered the injury during practice on Feb. 7.

This is the second ACL injury for the Australia native, who had to redshirt the entire 2001-02 season after tearing the ACL in her right knee during the team's annual Red & Blue Game in October of 2001.

Lindner played in 10 games off the bench for the Wildcats this season, averaging 0.8 points, 0.4 rebounds and 5.0 minutes per game. She is scheduled to have surgery to repair the injury in early March.


A couple Wildcat football recruits are recovering from injuries. JC transfer John Rattay suffered a torn ACL this past season and will be iffy for spring football.
