No. 15 Arizona starts Pac-10 play with two sweeps

The No. 15 Arizona volleyball team wasted no time this weekend, earning back-to-back sweeps over Oregon and Oregon State at McKale Center to begin Pacific 10 Conference play.

The Wildcats (10-1, 2-0 Pac-10) defeated Oregon (10-3, 0-2 Pac-10) Saturday night (30-20, 30-19, 30-25), as they hit .364 for the match while holding the Ducks to a .200 hitting percentage. Arizona collected seven service aces compared to just one for Oregon. [Read article]

Practice injury sidelines Rodgers

Knee sprain will keep senior guard out 4 to 8 weeks

Senior guard Chris Rodgers of the Arizona men's basketball team sprained his right knee in practice Wednesday and is expected to miss four to eight weeks.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Rodgers, one of three Wildcat seniors, led last year's team with a 2.3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

He averaged 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 36 games, helping push Arizona to its fifth 30-win season. [Read article]

photo Miller's hat trick punctuates soccer's weekend split

Arizona soccer head coach Dan Tobias tweaked his starting lineup yesterday because of injuries and the need to add some punch to his offense.

The changes helped, but the most important offensive jolt came from a usual suspect.

Senior midfielder-forward Mallory Miller hit the game-winner with just under two minutes remaining for her first-career hat trick, as the Wildcats snuck past UC-Santa Barbara 4-3. [Read article]

Gaub's gospel: Soccer apathy pathetic across U.S., UA

America's obsession with being the best, especially in sports, would come as no surprise to anyone who has lived here.

What's surprising, then, is our country's surprising lack of support for our soccer teams - and that tragic flaw starts right here on campus, amplifying all the way to the lack of support the men's national soccer team garnered in its qualifying run for the 2006 World Cup.

In a brutal match that included five yellow cards being issued, the United States defeated its archrival Mexico 2-0 on Sept. 3 at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, becoming the first team in its pool to qualify for the World Cup. In the process, the team rose to No. 6 in the world, its highest ranking ever. [Read article]

Rita roughens tough weekend for women's golf

The Arizona women's golf team entered its first tournament of the season over the weekend, putting any issues from last year behind it and hoping to get the 2005 season started on the right foot.

Three tough days in Franklin, Tenn., however, left head coach Greg Allen's squad still searching for something to spark that initial boost.

The Wildcats finished 14th out of 15 teams in the Mason Rudolph Women's Championships this weekend - a small consolation after being dead last after each of the first two rounds. [Read article]

Rain can't dampen weekend victories for men's tennis

The Arizona men's tennis team dodged storm clouds en route to victory over the weekend.

The Wildcats ran into some rain delays at the Denver Fall Championships in Denver, the team's second tournament of the fall season.

Rain caused a few matches to be played into yesterday afternoon, after the tournament was expected to finish, said Arizona head coach Tad Berkowitz. Teams had to scramble to indoor facilities to compete. [Read article]
