Game preview: Cats reaching for second win

UA hoping to end eight-game losing skid against UW

With all the festivities that will be going on this weekend - from the parade to legal beer bongs on the UA Mall - the exclamation point will be dotted if Arizona can find a way to take down Washington.

The Huskies will bring a team that many thought would give Southern California a run for the Pacific 10 Conference title, but has fallen to 5-4 on the season and 3-2 in conference play. [Read article]

Volleyball junior the latest in a long line of Crums at the UA

With parents and grandparents that left a permanent impression on UA sports, junior volleyball player Cassidy Crum was born to be a Wildcat.

So, why did she choose Duke?

"If you can go to Duke and get that education for free, you might as well," said Crum, a defensive specialist/libero. "It wasn't my thing. I'm a West Coast girl." [Read article]

Tobias leads UA against former team at Wazzu

UA women's soccer head coach Dan Tobias will not be here for the Homecoming festivities this weekend - but he will be having his own homecoming of sorts.

His Wildcat squad (5-10-2, 1-5-1 Pacific 10 Conference) is in the Pacific Northwest to face Washington State (6-9-2, 2-3-2) - a team he knows extremely well - at 3 p.m. today. He recruited every player currently on the Cougar squad. [Read article]

photo Hoops Roundup: Ranne runs for King of Homecoming

Playing basketball in front of 14,000 fans? That's pressure, according to UA senior guard Jason Ranne.

Standing on the steps of Old Main in a suit and tie - instead of his comfortable white-and-red jersey - waiting to hear his name announced as this year's homecoming king? Not so much.

"Nah, its nothing compared to this," said Ranne, one of six finalists for the honor, after Wednesday's Red-Blue game at McKale Center. [Read article]

photo Opponent analysis: Huskies' Williams a rare breed

The last time the Wildcats saw junior Washington receiver Reggie Williams, all they could make out as he ran 80 yards for the game-winning score was the No. 1 on the back of his jersey.

Last season at Husky Stadium, Arizona led Washington, 28-26 with just over two minutes to play. The Wildcats were 3-2 on the season at that point, looking for their first Pacific 10 Conference win and a new winning streak. [Read article]

In the face of a 49-shot barrage, Arizona treaded on thin ice in its first road contest of the season.

But the Icecats left Towson the same way they came in: undefeated.

A pair of goals by co-captain Mickey Meehan - including the game-winner - and another solid effort from junior goalie Bryan Aronchick powered the Icecats to a 6-5 overtime victory at No. 14 Towson last night.

The Tigers (7-5-1) forced the extra period following a power play goal with 6:15 remaining in the third period. But the Icecats ended the game just 1:40 into OT, as Meehan scored on an assist from fellow junior forward Don Holtz. [Read article]

Football: Arizona vs. Washington

The Cats will have to call Ortege Jenkins and his somersaulting techniques out of retirement to have a chance against the Huskies. Many alums will remember his flip into the end zone to beat Washington in Seattle in 1999. It's unlikely the Cats have anyone on this squad who can replicate those acrobatics.

Volleyball returns to .500

Down 29-24 in game two against No. 6 UCLA, the UA volleyball team was finished.

Then again, the Wildcats were finished when they went to Los Angeles 6-9 and 0-5 in the Pacific 10 Conference.

Last night, Arizona (12-12, 6-7 Pac-10) beat the Bruins (19-5, 10-4) for the second time in as many tries this season in resounding fashion, 3-0 in McKale Center. The Wildcats won the first game going away, 30-21 and then came back in game two to win, 37-35 to break the Bruins' back. [Read article]
