TUCSON, Ariz.- An inspired Arizona volleyball team rallied from a 1-1 tie with Washington State Saturday night by dominating games three and four to cruise to victory and sweep the season series with the Cougars. The 15-5, 17-19, 15-2, 15-4 win, Arizona's third straight, improves the Cats' record to 17-2 on the season and 10-1 in Pac-10 play. The Wildcats remain tied for first in the conference race with USC who swept its weekend series with the Bay Area schools.

For the second match in a row, the Wildcats utilized a series of scoring runs to their advantage. In the first game, Washington State saw its 5-2 lead disappear as the Wildcats went on a 13-0 tear to take opening frame. The Wildcats limited the Cougars to .095 hitting in the game.

The Cats appeared to carry over their first game success to the second, jumping out to a 2-0 lead, but would see their advantage disappear as WSU went a 9-2 run to take over the lead 9-4. The Cats once again rallied, taking a 10-9 lead, but could not put the Cougars away. The game would see-saw back-and-forth from there on. Both schools would have two opportunities each to win the match before the Cougars capitalized with the 19-17 victory. Washington State out-hit the Wildcats .380 to .333 to even the match 1-1.

 
 

After the intermission the Wildcats appeared to be a completely different team. UA stormed out to a 12-0 lead in the third game and would never look back. The Cats dominated, hitting an impressive .429 to Wazzu's .037 for the game. The fourth and final game went much the same way as the Cats jumped out to an early lead that the Cougars couldn't overcome. Arizona hit a game-high .433 in the final frame.

For the match, the Wildcats out-hit the Cougars .359 to .200, out-dug them 67-60 and out-blocked them 14 to six.

Individually, Arizona had three players recorded double-doubles. Senior Allison Napier led all players with 21 kills and chipped in with 12 digs and four blocks. Jill Talbot racked up 10 kills and 12 digs while Dana Burkholder dished out 59 assists and recorded 14 digs. Sophomore Lisa Rutledge broke out with 16 kills on .484 hitting and contributed nine digs to boot. Marisa DaLee, a night after tying the school hitting percentage record, picked up 13 kills on .379 hitting.

The Wildcats return to the road next weekend with a trip to the Bay Area for a Thursday-Friday match up with Stanford and California. Arizona possesses a perfect 8-0 record on the road this season.
