Playing the third game against Arizona St. Sun Devils in a three-game series to open the Pac-12 schedule, things took a turn for the worst for the Arizona softball team on Sunday when head coach Mike Candrea left the game in an ambulance. The 56-year-old coach experienced chest-tightness, according to Pat Finley of the Daily Star, but the good news is that all the medical tests checked out and Candrea should be ready to return to the dugout for Tuesday's game against San Diego State. The Wildcats fell to ASU as the Sun Devils completed a three-game sweep despite the Wildcats' 6-0 lead in the early innings.
Matt Scott is looking sharp in the early stages of learning coach Rich Rodriguez's new spread offense. In Saturday's scrimmage in Glendale, Scott hit 15-of-23 passes for 144 yards while only rushing three times for eight yards.
The men's swim and dive team took home fourth place in the NCAA Championships for first-year coach Eric Hansen. 200-yard backstroker Cory Chitwood won his third individual title in his main event to lead the Wildcats while senior diver Ben Grado won an individual championship as well. Grado is the first diver to win an individual title for Arizona.
