TUCSON-Junior outside hitter Janae Henry hit .400 with 13 kills and 15 digs, leading No. 17 Southern California to a 15-7, 15-9, 4-15, 15-8 victory over No. 18 Arizona in Tucson Thursday. The loss kept the Wildcats from posting their first season sweep over the Trojans since 1986.

With the win, USC improved to 12-5, 7-3 in the Pac-10. Arizona fell to 12-6 and 6-4.

The Cats were led by junior middle blocker Marisa DaLee, who posted 20 kills and hit .731, the fifth-best hitting percentage in Arizona history. DaLee has recorded five of the 14 best percentages by a Wildcat ever. Sophomore setter Dana Burkholder came within three kills of her first career triple-double, registering 51 assists and a match-high 20 digs. The Cats were hurt by 19 service errors.

Arizona returns to action Friday evening, when the Cats play host to sixth-ranked UCLA at 7 p.m. at the McKale Center.
