Defensive specialists/liberos Williams and Mulvany act as catalysts for UA offense by setting up the setter, yet the duo doesn't share in hitters' limelight

For every Michael Jordan, there is a Steve Kerr. For every Shaquille O'Neal, there is a Robert Horry. For every Troy Glaus, there is a David Eckstein.

The same can be said for the UA volleyball team, where for every Kim Glass or Lisa Rutledge, there is a Rachel Williams or Kelli Mulvany. [Read article]

Disgusted by the recent ticket debacle, a few Wildcat staff members put their heads together and came up with a few ideas that could be useful in avoiding problems in the future

UAPD should supervise

After two years, the UAPD and the McKale ticket office still haven't figured out a way to safely distribute basketball tickets to Arizona students.

I showed up yesterday morning at 4:45 a.m. and there were no police officers or ticket office supervisers anywhere. Chaos! [Read article]

Time for a new ticket procedure

I calmly walked up to McKale Center with a couple of my friends at 5 a.m yesterday, tired yet excited, confident yet nervous, and primed yet still unprepared to get my season tickets for the No. 1 basketball team in the nation.

As I inched closer with my Cat-Card in hand, my mouth dropped at what I saw öö the supposed no-lineup policy had gone by the wayside, creating a riotesque atmosphere that would give Fourth Avenue store owners recurring nightmares for weeks. [Read article]

photo Wildcats concentrate on running, stopping OSU run

After only having minus 17 yards rushing against Washington State, it is inevitable that the Wildcats will put an extra emphasis on the running game when they travel to Corvallis, Ore., to take on Oregon State on Saturday.

However, with Beaver running back Steven Jackson's 239-yard performance and a team total above 300 last week against California, the Wildcats might even focus more on the Oregon State rushing attack than their own. [Read article]

Online Exclusive: Oregon games prove less than fruitful for soccer team

The youth and inexperience roller-coaster season continued for the Arizona soccer team last weekend when their track took them through the Oregon schools.

Taking the field against Oregon State (8-7-2, 1-5-0 Pac-10) on Sunday proved to be a lot more Beaver than Arizona (5-9-1) wanted, falling 5-0. It took a mere 18 minutes for UA to be down 2-0 after two goals from Beaver scoring leader junior Courtney Carter (8 goals). Adding another goal from OSU's Whitney Horn, the Wildcats were down 3-0 in the first half, losing the shots battle as well 13-4. [Read article]

Online Exclusive: Water polo swims to victory

The Arizona men's water polo squad capped off a successful weekend by triumphing in the Southwest Conference Tournament Sunday afternoon.

In doing so the No. 8 Wildcats captured the conference title with an unblemished 12-0 record.

Team captain Brian Snell turned in a three-goal effort and senior Kris Souther powered the Wildcats past the University of Colorado, 11-5 in the championship match. [Read article]

Online Exclusive: Men's tennis finishes up fall season

The Arizona men's tennis team had one last chance to prove themselves as individuals this past weekend as they concluded the fall individual season in the Omni Hotel Region VII South Championships.

Some players were able to make a statement, while others were physically unable to do so.

The weekend started off well for the Wildcats as they finished the first day of the tournament with seven singles and two doubles victories. [Read article]

Online Exclusive: Wildcats gain confidence on both ends

Though the UA women's tennis team might use the fall season as a preseason for the spring, a strong showing in San Diego could have given the Wildcats a significant boost.

That is exactly what occurred for Arizona at the Omni Hotel West Regions Championship in San Diego.

The Wildcats joined UCLA and USC as the only schools to have three singles players make the round of 16.

That alone is a huge boost for Arizona as the Trojans and Bruins finished second and third respectively in the Pacific 10 Conference last season, which is considered the strongest tennis conference in the nation. [Read article]
