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)
