photo Czech mate: Polk shines in UA debut

Women's hoops opens season with 21-point win

A visiting assistant coach took pictures of the scoreboard and other sights in McKale Center last night, but it's more than likely he didn't snap any shots of Arizona freshman center Shawntinice Polk. She is a memory the Czech club team would probably rather forget.

Polk scored 16 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and added four blocked shots to lead the Wildcats to a 90-69 victory in front of 560 people at McKale Center last night. [Read article]

photo Homecoming rout keeps UA winless in conference play

You could see it in senior receiver Bobby Wade's eyes. You could tell by the sound of the usually upbeat voice of senior quarterback Jason Johnson. You knew it by the sight of junior safety Clay Hardt hunched over in the corner of the locker room, head down, with his long hair covering his face.

This one hurt.

"Our guys have taken this loss the hardest of any game this year," head coach John Mackovic said. "There is no question that this one hurt the most." [Read article]

Game Analysis

╬Warrior' still loves playing

Most of the students who went to Saturday's Homecoming football game against UCLA left at halftime. Why would they have stuck around? It was probably the worst game any of them had seen this season, since only a masochist would have watched the Oregon State game on tape delay after hearing the final score.

But senior Jarvie Worcester wouldn't have missed a second of it for the world. In fact, he cared so much about being there that he had a metal plate inserted in his broken right arm. It's tough to complain about ticket prices after hearing that. [Read article]

Two starters out for first game

When the UA men's basketball team opens up its 2002 exhibition schedule tonight, it will be without two starters from last season.

Both senior forward Luke Walton and sophomore guard Salim Stoudamire will be out with ankle injuries tonight when the No. 1 Wildcats take on the EA Sports All-Stars at 8 in McKale Center. Both are listed as questionable when Arizona opens its regular season on Nov. 23 against Western Kentucky at home. [Read article]

Volleyball Notes

The Arizona women's volleyball team finished the weekend with a split against No. 4 Stanford and California.

The 16th-ranked Wildcats (13-9 overall, 8-6 Pacific 10 Conference) were swept by the Cardinal 30-34, 26-30, 19-30 Thursday, but the match was a lot closer than indicated.

Arizona had a chance to take the first game against the Cardinal, but Stanford showed why it is the defending national champion. [Read article]

Online Exlusive: Icecats earn win on last leg of road trip

After a 7-3 loss to No. 1 Penn State (10-0) on Thursday, the No. 8 Arizona Icecats looked to redeem themselves against Delaware on Friday and Saturday.

The Icecats (4-3) and Blue Hens (8-1) split the weekend set at a game each, with UA losing a hard fought match to Delaware in the opener, 4-3 in overtime.

"It was a solid weekend by a young team, going to play two undefeated teams," Icecats head coach Leo Golembiewski said. " I'm really proud of the guys to come back like that against Delaware in that third game." [Read article]

Online Exlusive: Club volleyball finishes tournament with mixed results

The UA club men's volleyball team traveled to San Diego on Saturday to participate in a weekend exhibition designed to give Arizona its first taste of competition.

The games, dubbed a "learning weekend" by team captain Jeff Grobe, yielded mixed results. Despite dropping games versus Division I teams Cal-Irvine and Long Beach State, Arizona finished strong with victories over club teams San Diego State and Cal-Berkeley. [Read article]

Soccer ends season with two losses in Bay Area

In its final match of the 2002 season, the University of Arizona women's soccer team was shutout by No. 1 Stanford, 6-0, in Palo Alto on Sunday.

The loss came on the heels of a 4-1 defeat at California Friday in severe weather conditions.

The Wildcats finished the season at 6-12-1 overall and 1-8-0 in Pac-10 play, while Stanford is 18-1-0 overall and a perfect 9-0-0 in conference action, claiming the 2002 Pac-10 title.
