TUCSON, Ariz. -

Hey Wildcat Fans,

I am so excited after the win against #2 UCLA, Colorado, and Utah over the past couple of weeks.  We have been playing together as a team which has made all of the victories that much better. The trip to Utah and Colorado was harder than many may have expected.  We played Colorado, and then had to wake up the next morning to catch a flight to Salt Lake City, Utah.  Although it was tough, we still came out on the top!  

Rachel Rhoades has been making great strides as a blocker.  She has improved so much, and is so aggressive at the net.  It is great to see a freshman succeeding like she is this season.

This week we take on two of the top ranked teams in the nation, #5 Stanford (Friday at 7:00 p.m.) and #2 Cal (Saturday at 7:00 p.m.).  We lost to both teams in their house earlier this season, but we all think these two teams are definitely beatable.  This time we have the home-court advantage and everyone is on the same page.  Everyone is ready to go out and extend our winning streak to five!

Friday night we will be wearing our pink jerseys in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Wear your pink to the match and receive half off admission ($4).  All cancer survivors get in free.  Come out to support a great cause!

See you at McKale Center tonight!
