Arizona has ‘nothing to lose’ in Pac-12 opener at No. 1 Stanford

Arizona has ‘nothing to lose’ in Pac-12 opener at No. 1 Stanford

The legend of Lainey Burdett reached a crescendo last September. On a cool night in Palo Alto, the Arizona goalkeeper set a new career-high with 11 jaw-dropping saves to keep the Wildcats within striking distance of the eventual-national champion Stanford Cardinal. Arizona wound up losing 1-0, but holding the nation’s No. 1 offense to one goal was a remarkable feat, considering Stanford fired 32 shots and Burdett was, well, not herself early on. “She had the worst warmup in her life, in her career. She was awful,” recalls UA assistant Paul Nagy, “but she had the best game she ever...

Arizona opens Pac-12 play with straight-set win over ASU: ‘It’s always good to beat the Sun Devils’

Arizona moves to 12-1 on the season After a difficult 2017 for both teams, Arizona and ASU played non-conference schedules ranked outside the top 100. Now comes the gauntlet of Pac-12 volleyball, and Arizona wanted to show they were ready. Playing with a kind of energy and excitement that hasn’t always been evident in the early going, the Wildcats made that statement on Thursday night, securing their first conference victory in a sweep (25-18, 25-21, 25-18) over the Sun Devils in front a raucous 2,648 fans. “It was nice to play in front of a terrific crowd,” Arizona coach Dave Rubio...

Arizona ranked 25th in Sporting News’ preseason poll

Sporting News updated its 2018-19 college basketball preseason rankings Thursday, and the Arizona Wildcats now find themselves inside the Top 25. Barely. UA is ranked as the No. 25 team in the country by SN’s Mike DeCourcy. Here is why: Most have punted this program toward the Pacific with the loss of Allonzo Trier, Rawle Alkins and All-American DeAndre Ayton to pro hoops, but too many are ignoring wings Brandon Randolph and Emmanuel Akot, who were elite recruits. Big man Chase Jeter has been waiting as a transfer for a chance to be a significant contributor. Coach Sean Miller attracted...

Roundtable: What will Arizona’s Pac-12 record be?

Will the Cats turn it around or will this season dive deeper into the abyss? Three games into the season and it’s safe to say the Arizona Wildcats have not lived up to expectations. A home loss to the BYU Cougars followed by a drubbing at the hands of the Houston Cougars was not the way fans or Kevin Sumlin or anyone associated with Arizona wanted this year to start, and it’s kind of killed a lot of the buzz that was surrounding this team. Before the year, a lot of our writers gave their win-loss predictions, and everyone had this team winning at least eight games, with a number of...

The Sun Devils visit McKale Center on Thursday Two of the biggest contests for any college team are their conference opener and their rivalry game. For Arizona volleyball, those contests have been combined every year since 2012, with the Wildcats opening yet another Pac-12 season against ASU on Thursday. “The in-state rivalry means maybe a little bit more than the others just because of what’s at stake,” Arizona head coach Dave Rubio said. Rubio and his players have talked about the need to look beyond the name on the jersey, but he has admitted on several occasions that it can be...
