Throughout the Arizona Wildcat women's basketball season, freshman Candice Warthen will keep a weekly blog about life as a Pac-10 freshman. Check back for more updates from Candice!

Hello Wildcat Fans!

Our last trip was to the L.A. schools - USC and UCLA. For some strange reason, whenever we go on the road, the results aren't as planned. With all honesty, we are capable of competing with every team we have played this year.

On Thursday night, we had USC and we are overly capable of beating them. They just played harder and they wanted it more than we did. We played pretty good defense but we didn't rebound the ball well and we gave up to many lose balls.

UCLA was ranked No. 11 in the country. This team didn't do anything spectacular, they just played extremely hard and they were dogs on the boards. We played very well defensively but every shot they missed, they had everyone rebounding while we only had one or two people rebounding. The one and only reason we lost this game is because they out rebounded us and they had several second chance points.

This week we have the Cal and Stanford at our house where we are currently undefeated. Let's see if we can keep it that way.

Thanks for reading my blog! Go Cats!
