photo Football: Cats drop 1st road game to UCLA

Safety, Bruin passing game breaks UA, 37-17

PASADENA, Calif. - The UA football team was successful in stopping Pac-10 leading rusher Maurice Drew Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

Problem was, the Wildcats ultimately may have put their focus on the wrong Drew.

"We played the run well and played the pass terrible," said UA junior defensive back Darrell Brooks after the Bruins, led by junior quarterback Drew Olson's four touchdown passes, rolled to a 37-17 victory over the Wildcats in Pasadena, Calif.

PASADENA, Calif. - The numbers never lie.


The UA defense held UCLA's two-headed backfield monster of Manuel White and Maurice Drew to just 44 yards combined in the first half, on 14 carries. Arizona's own formidable backfield combination of Mike Bell and Gilbert Harris hit the holes for 144 yards on 19 carries through two quarters.

Arizona's offense held onto the ball four and a half minutes longer than UCLA. The Wildcats gained 9 first downs to UCLA's 11, and 172 total yards to the Bruins' 189. [Read article]

Oregon trip sweep gives volleyball 1st Pac-10 wins

The No. 21 Arizona volleyball team can finally breathe a sigh of relief after earning its first two Pacific 10 Conference wins of the season by defeating Oregon and Oregon State on the road this weekend.

"I would be lying if I said that it doesn't feel like there's been a weight lifted off our shoulders," said UA head coach Dave Rubio. "We've been our own worst enemy, but I feel like we're moving in the right direction." [Read article]

Wildcat tennis: Injury forces Matalongaís exit from All-American tournament

While the nationís top singles players competed in the Icy Hot/ITA Menís All-American Championship this weekend, muscle cramps ended up being the toughest opponent for UA tennis junior Roger Matalonga.

Leading Greg Oullette of Florida 7-6 (5), 3-4 in the first round of this tournament in Chattanooga, Tenn., cramps forced Matalonga to withdraw from the singles bracket.

Coach Bill Wright said that he thinks that Matalonga likely would have held on to his lead if he were not forced to pull out. [Read article]
