Postcard from Arizona


It’s about 20 minutes before tipoff and there are few blue and orange T-shirts at Wells Fargo Arena.

They’re expecting about 10,000 here but the arena looks pretty vacant at this point. Maybe all the students are out at Mill Avenue, grabbing a last beverage.

Had a chance to grab some lunch in Scottsdale this afternoon. Between the nouveau riche shops and spas is a quaint old west village filled with trinket shots. Somewhere, I’d expect to find Wilford Brimley in a stetson, shaping a horse shoe.

Former UF offensive lineman Max Starks and Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, a Gator fan, are among fans in the stands.
