photo Ducks outlast Wildcats, 31-14

Even with the Wildcats missing several key players due to injuries, Arizona was able to play with the No. 8 team in the country for a half.

UA had the lead twice in the first half and put a little scare into the No. 8 Oregon Ducks (5-0, 1-0 Pacific 10 Conference), but when all was said and done, the Wildcats' injuries and Oregon's depth took over in the 31-14 loss Saturday night in Arizona Stadium. [Read article]

Loss not for lack of heart

It was not a drive to win the game. There was little to no hope that Arizona could mount a comeback against No. 8 Oregon, down 17 with 10:36 left in the fourth quarter. Stranger things may have happened, but not too often.

Nevertheless, Jason Johnson, Bobby Wade and what was left of the first-string offense headed onto the field as the stands of Arizona Stadium bled, asked to mount a 71-yard drive that would do nothing more than make the score respectable. [Read article]

The Arizona soccer team saw both ends of the spectrum when it played host to the Arizona Tournament this weekend.

On Friday night the Wildcats mauled Youngstown State (1-10-0), 7-0, putting them in Sunday's championship game against a proven Saint Louis (9-3-0) team that dispatched Arizona, 5-1.

"We've seen better days," said UA head coach Cathy Klein after Sunday's loss. "We faced some adversity." [Read article]

Volleyball sees ups and downs in Wash. swing

In years past, Washington and Washington State have given the Arizona volleyball team little concern, but that all changed over the weekend.

No. 17 WSU and the Huskies proved the Pacific 10 Conference is strong from top to bottom as they both gave UA (7-6 overall, 2-3 Pac-10) all that it could handle.

Both matches went five games, with the Wildcats defeating Washington and losing to WSU.

UA's first test was against the Cougars on Thursday night and both teams fought to the end, but WSU defeated the Wildcats 2-3 (30-28, 22-30, 30-24, 26-30, 11-15) [Read article]
