photo Basketball: Frye, freshmen shine in scrimmage

Senior Frye leads all scorers with 37 points in Red-Blue game

The future looked bright Sunday afternoon in McKale Center as the Arizona men's basketball team battled one of the toughest teams they will face all year: themselves.

New faces as well as old showed off their improved skills in front of a modest crowd of 7,221 in the team's annual Pepsi Red-Blue game.

The Wildcats' first game-style action of the season featured Channing Frye, who poured in a team-high 37 points, hitting 13 of 18 shots from the floor while using an array of jumpers, dunks and put-backs in the process. To complement Frye, freshman guard Jesus Verdejo scored 27 points and the Puerto Rico native lacked any pre-game jitters some might have expected from the UA's incoming crop of freshmen.

photo Football falters at home, falls to Beavers

On a day when many UA football legends were welcomed back to the UA campus for the school's 90th homecoming celebration on Halloween weekend, it was the ghosts of Wildcat football's current season that reappeared to all but assure the Wildcats' seventh consecutive loss.

Missed field goals, fumbles and dropped passes led to the Wildcats' demise this time in a 28-14 loss to Oregon State Saturday at Arizona Stadium, Arizona's seventh straight overall and seventh consecutive in Pac-10 play, dating back to last season. [Read article]

Cats stop No. 5 UCLA, USC to control conference chase

The No. 18 UA soccer team defeated No. 5 UCLA 1-0 yesterday for the first time in the program's history, putting the team in good position to achieve another first: a Pacific 10 Conference title.

Junior midfielder Althea Jones scored the lone goal in the game's 41st minute. Jones took the ball at midfield and beat multiple Bruins with her speed, taking the ball all the way down the field into the box. She scored from about 10 yards out with the goalie charging at her and two Bruin defenders chasing after her. [Read article]

Volleyball sweeps UCLA after falling to USC

The No. 24 Arizona volleyball team (13-8, 5-6 Pac-10) proved it might be approaching its legendary second-half peak as the team swept No. 12 UCLA on Saturday, despite losing to No. 5 Southern California a day earlier.

The Wildcats swept the Bruins (30-28, 30-21, 30-28) Saturday at Pauley Pavilion for the second consecutive year. Arizona out-hit UCLA .291 to .197 and out-blocked the home team eight to five. The win served as Arizona's first victory against a ranked opponent since Sept. 11 when it defeated then-No. 18 Louisville at home. [Read article]

photo Hockey: Meehan's four goals helps lift Icecats to first win of season

The UA Icecats claimed their first win of the season in a 7-2 rout of Lehigh Saturday night at Tucson Convention Center.

"It's been a long time coming," Icecat head coach Leo Golembiewski said of the win. "We've still got a lot of work to do, but we're starting to put some pucks in the net."

Senior Mickey Meehan, starting at left wing for the first time, led the offensive onslaught with four goals. [Read article]

Cross Country takes 6th at Pac-10s

Arizona sophomore cross country runner Robert Cheseret won the individual title while the men's and women's cross country teams both placed sixth in the Pacific 10 Championships Saturday in San Francisco.

Cheseret narrowly defeated Stanford's Ryan Hall for the title while the Cardinal won both of the team titles for the fifth consecutive year.

Cheseret and Hall each finished with times of 23:48 on the 8,000-meter course, but Cheseret was awarded the victory after edging Hall at the finish line. [Read article]

On a day where weather conditions weren't the most ideal for a swim meet - temperatures reached a high of 70 degrees - the Arizona men's and women's swim and dive teams hosted their lone home meet of the semester against the Wisconsin Badgers.

The Badgers boasted a 2-0 record until this weekend, but the No. 4 men's team won its half of the meet, 160-99. The No. 3 women won also won, defeating Wisconsin with a score of 141-119. [Read article]
