The seventh-ranked Arizona volleyball team, 12-1 for the season and a perfect 5-0 in Pac-10 play, continues to rank among the NCAA Division I leaders in a variety of statistical categories. The Wildcats rank second in team hitting, team kills and team assists and are eighth in team blocks. Their .923 winning percentage is 11th-best for Division I schools.

UA's hot hitting for the season has led to a .356 team hitting percentage, which trails only fourth-ranked USC's .370. Top-ranked Nebraska checks in at third with a .336 percentage. The Cats have averaged 18.44 kills per game as a team thus far. Arizona, along with national leader Santa Clara (18.76 kpg) are the only two schools in the nation to average over 18 kills per game in Division I. Arizona also trails only Santa Clara in team assists. The Wildcats average 16.71 assists per game, while the No. 17 Broncos top the nation with 17.39. UA's 3.14 blocks per game places them in a three-way tie for eighth with Cal Poly and Louisville. No. 1 Nebraska is the national leader with 3.85 bpg.

Arizona's team success has paved the way for three Wildcat players to also make the national leader board.

Senior Marisa DaLee continues to lead the nation in hitting for the third consecutive week. Her outstanding .493 hitting percentage is 20 points better than second-ranked Jennifer Pahl of USC. Sophomore teammate Stefani Saragosa's .416 percentage places her 11th in Division I. Setter Dana Burkholder, a junior, has averaged 14.36 assists per game this season, good enough for fifth in Division I and tops in the Pac-10.

Arizona will take its high-powered offense to Oregon this weekend to take on Oregon State in Corvallis on Friday and Eugene to meet up with Oregon on Saturday. Friday's match can been seen live on Fox Sports Net at 7:30 pm.
