It was a long weekend in sports due to Martin Luther King Jr Holiday. We are now down to four teams in the NFL, unfortunately one of them isn't the Cardinals.
That's okay though because the Phoenix Suns are doing there best to make themselves the talk of Arizona sports. They did so with a memorable victory of the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday in Mexico. Yes you read that right the Suns played two games in Mexico. Even though they only won one it was a coming out party Devin Booker. The Suns finished the weekend witj a loss to the Utah Jazz yesterday. The Suns are now 13-28 on the season.
In the NHL the Coyotes were outscored 6-1 this weekend, losing two and dropping their season record to 13-24-6. But the big news came down Sunday when it was reported that Shane Doan would be willing to wave his no trade clause to go to a contender and compete for a Stanley Cup.
In college basketball the Arizona Wildcats hosted in state rival Arizona State on Thursday. There was much talk over this game with ASU coach Bobby Hurley trying to add fuel to an already intense rivalry. There was even more action during the pre-game when an ASU player flipped off the crowd. With all this anticipation and activity one would have thought the game would have been close, but it wasn't. Arizona dominated the entire night and came away with a 91-75 victory and improving to 16-2 on the year. ASU is now 9-9.
