Arizona shot 39 percent overall from the field while holding Rice to 19 percent shooting. The Wildcats' 61 rebounds - tied for the eighth-best mark in team history - topped the Owls by 20. [Read article]

Soccer's storied season cut short

Colgate upsets Cats 1-0 in NCAA 1st-round action

It seems only fitting that an ice-cold, snow-filled day proved most successful in slowing Tucson's hottest success story of the season.

The No. 13 UA soccer team (15-6), fresh off claiming a share of the first Pacific 10 Conference title in program history and a school-record 15-win season, fell 1-0 Friday night to Colgate (14-6-1) in opening round action of the NCAA tournament, in Storrs, Conn. [Read article]

Football: No. 1 Trojans too much for Cats

Cats hangs tough before Trojans pull away in second half

LOS ANGELES Score 49 for the other guys.

49-9, that is.

The Arizona football team managed to hold USC sophomore running back and Heisman Trophy hopeful Reggie Bush in check for most of the Wildcats' matchup with the top-ranked Trojans Saturday night in Los Angeles.

But it was the Trojans' other Heisman candidate, junior quarterback Matt Leinart, and the home team's other marquee tailback, sophomore LenDale White who caused the visiting Wildcats nothing but trouble in the Trojans' 40-point homecoming victory at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Icecats back on track after St. Louis sweep

After a slow start to the season, the Arizona Icecats (3-4-1) opened their first win streak Friday and Saturday with a pair of wins at St. Louis.

Arizona outshot St. Louis University 96-47 in the two-game set in the team's first road swing of the year and came out on top 4-2 Friday and 6-1 Saturday.

"We're the 'Enigmatic Icecats,'" UA head coach Leo Golembiewski said. "Any time you're on the road, you never know what to expect. I'm proud of the way these kids played." [Read article]

Volleyball storms past Wash. State for sweep

After being swept by top-ranked Washington the day before, the No. 21 Arizona volleyball team exacted revenge on Washington State, as the Wildcats swept the Cougars (30-17, 30-19, 30-28) at Bohler Gym in Pullman, Wash., Friday night.

With the win, Arizona improved to 16-9 overall and 8-7 in the Pacific 10 Conference. The Wildcats hit .400 on the night while holding the Cougars to a .144 hitting percentage. Arizona also bettered Washington State in blocks (9 to 4) and kills (57 to 37). The Cougars, however, matched the Wildcats with 41 digs and had three service aces compared to Arizona's two.

Tennis rebounds with big weekend after slow start at Rainbow Wahini Invitational

After a tough first day of action at the Rainbow Wahine Tennis Invitational, the UA women's tennis team rebounded to win all but one of its final 16 matches in the Hawaii tournament.

Arizona started the tournament off poorly with an 8-1 loss to Texas A&M at the UH Tennis Complex in Honolulu. The Wildcats bounced back in their final tournament of the semester by beating Hawaii 7-1 and sweeping Texas State 8-0. Injuries caused Arizona to play only eight matches against both schools, as opposed to the customary nine. [Read article]

Golf teams advance to second round at Hooters match play

The Arizona men's golf team beat Purdue yesterday (3-2) in the first round of the Hooters Collegiate Match Play Championship in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

The eighth-seeded Wildcats got wins from sophomores Henry Liaw and Travis Esway and freshman Josh Esler to beat the Boilermakers in the 16-team event.

Arizona finishes its match with top-seeded Georgia Tech today. Play was suspended yesterday because of rain, with the Yellow Jackets leading in three pairings, tied in one and trailing in another after the first nine holes. [Read article]
