Sweep in Oregon gives UA Pac-10 title

The No. 10 UA soccer team looks to clinch their first Pacific 10 Conference title this weekend against the Oregon schools to close out the regular season.

"I'm anxious. I'm excited. I can't wait until we go to Oregon; I think we're going to play really well," UA senior forward Kamaya Damwijk said this week.

The Wildcats (14-4-0 overall, 5-2-0 Pac-10) face Oregon State (8-9-1, 2-4-1) today at noon PST. The Beavers came away with a tie and a loss last weekend at California and Stanford, respectively. [Read article]

Men's basketball faces Team Georgia Sunday

The Arizona men's basketball team finally gets a chance to play a team other than itself Sunday at 2 p.m. when the Wildcats face Team Georgia - a welcome sight for the coaching staff.

"We're tired of playing against ourselves," UA assistant coach Josh Pastner said. "It's important that we have a chance to compete against someone other than ourselves to see where we stand on what has been taught." [Read article]

The No. 22 Arizona volleyball team (14-8, 6-6 Pac-10) evened out its conference record for the first time all season with a sweep over Oregon (30-17, 30-19, 30-19) last night at McKale Center.

All 14 women on the Arizona roster saw some playing time as they combined for a season-high .434 hitting percentage with half the squad hitting .500 or better.

"I feel for the Oregon team," said UA head coach Dave Rubio. "They've had a lot of injuries. Two of their best players got injured earlier in the year and they've struggled without their top players like any team would." [Read article]

photo Icecats welcome Weber State to TCC

The UA Icecats have an upset on their minds tonight when they host No. 6 Weber State at the Tucson Convention Center.

After a sluggish start to the season, Arizona (1-3) bounced back in its last game with a 7-2 win over Lehigh. The team hopes to take the momentum from the win into the two WSU games.

Weber State (4-1-1) is Arizona's second top-10 opponent of the young season. The Icecats opened the season with a pair of losses to No. 9 Arizona State. [Read article]

UA battles UW for Pac-10's anti-title

It may not be for the Pac-10 championship, but don't tell the UA football team that its matchup with Washington doesn't matter.

Arizona heads to Seattle tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. PST to face a Husky team that's been a near-mirror image of the Wildcats this season, with both squads sporting 1-7 overall marks and winless Pacific 10 Conference records.

"I think getting that first one's the hardest," UA head coach Mike Stoops said of obtaining that elusive first conference win at the helm of the Wildcats. [Read article]

Commentary: History says Cats, Huskies will battle it out

I remember where I was when Arizona won its 1997 basketball national championship. I was at a friend's house watching every minute of the Wildcats' overtime win.

I remember I was at a wedding back in December 1998, sneaking to a back room to check a TV, when the Wildcat football team knocked off Nebraska to finish their most successful season in history.

When the UA baseball team knocked off Long Beach State last summer to return to the College World Series for the first time since 1986, I was at home with my family, celebrating every pitch in front of the television set. [Read article]
