Arizona lodes for respect
By EDME PELLS
The Associated Press
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — It started in the first round against South Alabama. continued against Kansas and will keep going when Arizona gets to Indianapolis for the Final Four.
People expect the Wildcats to lose, even though their performance in the Southeast Regional repeatedly refuted their reputation as a tournament choker.
Arizona coach Lute Olson credited junior guard Miles Simon, a three-year starter, ft* taking charge of team with not tine senior in the lineup. Simon finished with a career-high 30 points Sunday in a 96-92 overtinx* win over Providence. It sent the Wildcats into the Final Four to play North Carolina.
“I think early in the season, Miks saw there weren’t going to be any seniors and
decided to establish himself as a good positive leader.” Olson said. “Itk worked. This team is as together as any team I’ve ever been involved with.”
And he^ been around a while. In his 24th year of coaching, Olson will make his fourth Final Four appearance. The first was with Iowa in 1980, the last three have come ova the last IO seasons at Arizona Still, it was toe reputation the Wildcats developed by losing in the fust round three times in this decade that made them a popular choice to fall to 13th-seeded South Alabama in the first round.
The Jaguars held a 10-point lead with 7:31 left hut the Wildcats srarcd 17 straight points to win that game. The win over top-seeded Kansas showed they could compete with anyone. Olson figures another Final Four berth should get people to stop thinking about the past failures.

Thomas moved from linebacker to
defensive end in the last six games of the 1996 season ami finished second on the team w ith 4.5 sacks. I Ie also had 20 quarterback pressures.
Owner Jerry Jones, who said terms wouldn’t he announced, said the Cowboys needed Thomas regardless of Haley status.
