BRISTOL, Conn.--Arizona's softball game against UCLA at 7 p.m. Friday will be switched to ESPN2 national cable from its less-available ESPNU network.

The network made the switch because its original programming plans for ESPN2 included a potential NBA Western Conference playoff contest between Denver and San Antonio. The Spurs won their fourth straight to end the series Wednesday night.

All three of Arizona's games this weekend thus are national cablecasts, with Saturday's 5 p.m. game against Washington and the regular season home finale against the Huskies at 1 p.m. on Sunday both to be shown on the flagship ESPN.

UW and Arizona will finish up a rain-delayed April 15 game (in Seattle) at 3:30 p.m. preceding Saturday's game, and that will not be televised.

Sunday is Senior Day, with a post-game ceremony for six UA players in their final home game.
