Wildcats keep pace for three quarters, but USC offense prevails

LOS ANGELES - Arizona gave No. 1 Southern California all it wanted for more than three quarters Saturday at Memorial Coliseum but fell short in its upset bid, 42-21.

USC (5-0, 3-0 Pacific 10 Conference) racked up a school-record 724 yards of total offense and controlled the ball for 37 minutes to down Arizona (1-4, 0-2) in a closely contested matchup before a crowd of 90,221. [Read article]

Team showcases fast-paced style in McKale exhibition

The Phoenix Suns showcased their fast-breaking, 3-point shooting offense Saturday in McKale Center in an intrasquad scrimmage that ended in an 83-83 tie.

Suns guard Steve Nash dribbled down the clock but missed on a contested drive to the hoop as time expired.

Neither squad hesitated to shoot early in the shot clock or push the ball up the court, as per the Suns' style of play from last year, when they advanced to the Western Conference Finals and won an NBA-best 62 games. [Read article]

Volleyball bedevils rival ASU

TEMPE - Although the statistics may suggest otherwise, the No. 12 Arizona volleyball team struggled in its sweep over in-state rival ASU Friday night in Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe.

The Wildcats (12-2, 4-1 Pacific 10 Conference) out-hit the Sun Devils (6-9, 1-4) .310 to .099 in a 30-22, 30-26, 30-26 victory, but committed 15 serving errors to ASU's 13.

"It's hard to complain about winning ... (but) we didn't serve well," said Arizona head coach Dave Rubio. "We made too many unforced errors. You can have some, but not to that degree." [Read article]

photo Soccer opens Pac-10 play with weekend sweeps

Miller's record-setting performance leads UA

About the only Arizona soccer records that don't have senior midfielder-forward Mallory Miller's name in front of them are for goalkeepers.

Miller doesn't play goalkeeper, so those records may be the only ones she can't touch before her collegiate career wraps up at the end of this season.

Miller scored four goals over the weekend, including her second career hat trick, and notched two assists to give Arizona wins against Oregon and Oregon State in the opening weekend of Pacific 10 Conference play. [Read article]

Women's golf hoping to get off to better start

The No. 23 Arizona women's golf team tees it up today in the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Seattle, shooting to improve on its less-than-impressive performance in its season opener.
