photo Offense rips it up in second half

SPRING GAME OFFENSE 47, DEFENSE 26

Adam Austin may have started slow, but the former walk-on quarterback finished strong.

After overthrowing his receivers multiple times in the first half of Saturday's scrimmage, which pitted the Arizona offense against its defense, the sophomore, starting in place of the injured Richard Kovalcheck, finished 27-for-50, with 370 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in his team's 47-26 victory.

Commentary: Defense stifles 'O' early on

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops said a downfall of spring practice is the defense eventually knows every play the offense will run.

For the first 60 minutes of Saturday's 105-minute Spring Game, this held true as the Arizona defense racked up 20 points on 11 forced fourth downs for one point apiece and three forced turnovers for three points each.

Sophomore safety Dominic Patrick did his part to protect the end zone Saturday with four tackles and an interception. [Read article]

photo Softball: No. 3 Cats sweep Devils

Awakened bats give long reliever Wolfe support

Maybe the lightning that delayed the game nearly an hour put some much-needed electricity into the bats of the No. 3 Arizona softball team Saturday.

Whatever it was, in its 10-3 win over ASU (26-18, 1-11 Pacific 10 Conference), the Wildcats finally found the offense that assistant coach Larry Ray said was "non-existent" earlier this week. [Read article]

Men's golf to defend Pac-10 title

The Arizona men's golf team tees off today in the Pacific 10 Championships to defend its conference title in Walla Walla, Wash.

Last season, the Wildcats came from behind to win by five strokes for its third Pac-10 title with a 10-over 1,450 total. Arizona has finished second in the tournament seven times.

In its last outing, the squad tied for seventh place with Oregon at the U.S. Intercollegiate April 16-17 in Palo Alto, Calif. Arizona finished with a 54-hole total of 293 (+13), 32 strokes behind tournament winner Southern California. Sophomore Josh Esler paced the Wildcats with an 8-over 218 total, good for a tie for 23rd place. [Read article]

No. 6 baseball swept in Sacramento

The Wildcats came to Sacramento playing their best baseball of the year after spending the last four weeks beating up on the Pacific 10 Conference.

They left with three head-scratching losses against inferior competition, at least on paper.

No. 6 Arizona (27-14, 10-2 Pac-10) lost a 4-3 heartbreaker in 11 innings to UC Irvine (20-16) Friday before getting swept in Saturday's doubleheader, 11-2 to Irvine in the opener and 7-4 to host Sacramento State in the second game at Hornet Field. [Read article]

Now the Laxcats' destiny is in the hands of the U.S. Lacrosse Intercollegiate Association voters who will decide May 2 which teams will be in the national tournament beginning May 10 in Blaine, Minn.

"Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of the voters right now," said junior defender Carson Parmelee. [Read article]
