CORVALLIS, Ore. ?- The No. 6 Arizona volleyball team closed out regular season play with a 3-0 sweep of Oregon State at Gill Coliseum tonight. With the win, the Wildcats improve to 22-5 overall and 14-4 in the Pac-10, good for second place.


Arizona hit .300 on the match and held the Beavers to a Wildcat opponent season-low .025. Arizona also out-blocked Oregon State 16.5 to 7.


“We played much better tonight,” Head Coach David Rubio said. “Offensively, we were a lot more diverse than we were last night. We executed more consistently.”


Senior Kim Glass led all players with 18 kills to wrap up the regular season as the only player in the Pac-10 with 10 or more kills in every match. Senior Jennifer Abernathy and sophomore Dominique added eight kills apiece. Lamb also had a team-high seven blocks.


Junior setter Stephanie Butkus dished out 38 assists in the win, while freshman libero Brittany Leonard tallied a team-high 10 digs.



Arizona will find out its postseason fate during the NCAA Selection Show at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow, Nov. 27. It will be broadcast live on ESPNews.
