Tiffany Owens recorded her conference-leading 18th double-double on the season with 16 kills and 10 digs for Arizona which battled Stanford closely in sets two and three but couldn't over take the home team.  Set two saw the score tied 11 times and change hands twice.


Courtney Karst was the only other UA player who posted double-digit kills with 14 on 33 swings.  Paige Weber collected 39 assists while freshman Candace Nicholson had 12 digs to lead the Cats.
