photo Men's Hoops: Adjustments pay off for Wildcats

UA 107 UCLA 83

When the No. 16 Arizona men's basketball team found itself tied for fourth in the Pac-10 last week with just three weeks to go in conference play, Wildcat coaches and players had just one option: adjust.

The Wildcats followed Thursday's 27-point win over Southern California with an equally impressive 107-83 win over UCLA Saturday afternoon in McKale Center, fueled by junior guard Salim Stoudamire's 34 points and a triple-double from sophomore forward Andre Iguodala. The effort set a career high for Stoudamire, and Iguodala's triple-double was the third of his career, a new school record. [Read article]

photo UA takes 2 of 3 from Fullerton

Cats down No. 8 Titans, up early record to 5-1

By the time Arizona baseball head coach Andy Lopez wakes up this morning, he might appreciate what his team accomplished over the weekend.

Though the UA lost its first game of the year 12-10 in a seesaw game to No. 8 Cal State Fullerton at Sancet Stadium yesterday, the team won the weekend series.

"We should have (won) three," Lopez said. "I'm really disappointed we didn't get the sweep." [Read article]

Women's Hoops: Turnovers, fouls pull Cats from Pac-10 lead

USC 68 UA 66

Women's hoops loses again, drops to third

Fouls and turnovers cost the UA women's basketball team another game on the road - barely.

Sophomore center Shawntinice Polk fouled out with nine minutes left, and 28 UA turnovers allowed Southern California to nip the Wildcats 68-66 yesterday in the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

With the loss, the Wildcats (18-7, 10-4 Pacific 10 Conference) saw USC (14-9, 11-4) leapfrog them in the Pac-10 standings. Arizona falls to third place in the conference after Stanford beat California Saturday. [Read article]

Softball stays perfect in dominant fashion

This weekend was supposed to challenge the Arizona softball team - but then, Leslie Wolfe was supposed to be a liability in the circle.

The No. 2 Wildcats (11-0) capped another perfect weekend with an 8-2 win over Nevada and a 10-1 win over Western Michigan yesterday in the Fiesta Bowl tournament in Phoenix.

Against the Wolfpack, sophomore pitcher Alicia Hollowell (7-0) struck out seven and kept her ERA at 0.00, while Wolfe, a sophomore, earned her second win of the weekend and season in the six-inning win over the Broncos. [Read article]

ASU prez apologizes to Olson

ASU President Michael Crow apologized Friday to men's basketball head coach Lute Olson, who was taunted and cursed by Arizona State fans during a 93-74 UA win over the Sun Devils in Tempe last month.

Speaking to the UA President's Club Friday, Crow paused during a talk on the future of Arizona higher education to single out Olson, who had been introduced as a guest of honor earlier in the afternoon. [Read article]

Men's tennis has revenge on BYU, 7-0

It is safe to say that the men's tennis team was looking forward to this match more than any other this season.

Coming off a loss to BYU (1-7) last year that senior Whi Kim said hurt more than any other loss he's ever witnessed at Arizona, the Wildcats had no mercy this time around, beating BYU 7-0.

"It was a great win for us," assistant coach Tad Berkowitz said. "BYU beat us last year, and the guys still had bad taste in their mouths from that defeat. They came out fired up and ready to go." [Read article]

Women's tennis falls to Ducks

In its first Pacific 10 Conference match of the season, the Wildcat women's tennis team went on the road to Oregon and lost 6-1.

Arizona (3-2, 0-1 Pac-10) lost all three doubles matches and won only one of six singles matches against the No. 42 Ducks (8-0, 2-0), who have yet to lose.

"It was a tough match," said assistant coach Petar Danolic. "Oregon is very good, despite their ranking."

The Wildcats took five matches to three sets but lost four of them, with only Kelly Perry winning her match, 5-7, 7-5, 6-0, over Jamie Marshall. [Read article]

Gymcats edged by Beavers

Arizona gymnastics was held up by the Beavers' dam in Corvallis, Ore., Friday night as the Wildcats were on the short side of a 196.950-196.700 score.

Taking event titles in vault (49.250) and floor (49.325) was not enough for the Gymcats (6-2, 2-2 Pacific 10 Conference) to keep their heads above water. The meet was tied after two rotations and Oregon State (4-6, 2-2) held a narrow 0.025 lead heading into the last event. [Read article]

Laxcats improve to 2-1 on Texas road trip

Arizona lacrosse improved its record to 2-1 as the Wildcats triumphed over Texas A&M and Texas this weekend.

As expected, the previously undefeated Aggies put up a strong fight, but the Wildcats were able to pull off an 8-5 win.

Senior attackman Jeems Lochridge led the Wildcats with three goals, and fellow attackman Adam Paris added two goals and one assist.

Head coach Kenny Broschart said the Aggies offered a good, competitive match up. [Read article]
