Transfer Bendu Yeaney gets waiver, can play for Arizona Wildcats women’s basketball team

Arizona’s hopes for a first outright Pac-12 women’s basketball title received a boost with the NCAA granting transfer Bendu Yeaney immediate eligibility for the 2020-21 season.

A 5-foot-10 junior guard who started 69 games in three years at Indiana, Yeaney will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with Arizona. She played in just six games for the Hoosiers in the 2019-20 season after returning from an Achilles injury at the end of the previous season.

Yeaney entered the transfer portal at the end of January, citing a desire to be closer to her Oregon home.

As a sophomore in the 2018-19 season, Yeaney averaged 9.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game for the Hoosiers.

How to be a “masked” beauty | Good Morning Arizona

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Have we gotten used to the masks yet? It doesn’t seem like they’ll will be going away anytime soon, and for some people the whole look has become quite the fashion statement.

Opinion | Will Mormon Women Sink Trump in Arizona?

In 2016, Latter-day Saints antipathy and skepticism toward Mr. Trump gave an opening for both Evan McMullin and Gary Johnson, third-party candidates, to grab votes that would typically have gone to the Republican nominee. Sure, Mr. Trump won Utah — but with a meager 45 percent of the vote. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon well-regarded by fellow members of the church, carried it in 2012 with over 70 percent.

Mr. Romney himself is a key to how a lot of church voters, especially women, view Mr. Trump. The resounding refrain that anyone who has ever talked to a female Mormon voter, or a female Mormon relative, has heard about Romney is that he is “such a good man.”

Mr. Romney has said he will not vote for Mr. Trump. Jeff Flake, the former Arizona senator and a fellow Mormon, has endorsed Mr. Biden.

It’s not just prominent Mormons like them
