TUCSON, Ariz.- The fifth-ranked Arizona volleyball team cruised to its second straight NCAA tournament victory Friday night, defeating Michigan 3-0 before 2,195 fans in McKale Center. Arizona earned its 27th win of the season with the victory, one off the school record of 28 set in 1978.

The Wildcats started the match on a 6-0 run and never looked back, hitting an impressive .443 in the 15-1, 15-1, 15-8 win. Defensively, Arizona limited the Wolverines to .046 hitting for the match.

"It was wonderful to play so well and move to the next round," head coach David Rubio said. "It was one of those nights when everything came together. Michigan is a very good team and to play so well, I believe we played one of our best matches of the year tonight."

Led by senior Marisa DaLee's 13 kills and .667 hitting, the Wildcats tallied 44 kills on 88 swings while committing only five errors for the match. DaLee also recorded a match-high nine total blocks, including two solos.

Junior Jill Talbot had an error free night, rapping home 10 kills on 14 attempts for a .714 hitting percentage and also chipped in with a match-high 10 digs. Senior Allison Napier joined DaLee and Talbot in double digit kills smacking home 10.

Arizona now plays the waiting game to see whom and where they will play in the regional semifinals next weekend.
