Wildcat Wrap: Josh Green commits, football beats Cal, soccer and volleyball get swept

Big week for basketball and football. Not so much for the other sports.

NCAA Basketball: California at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday, so let’s get all you Arizona Wildcats fans caught up with all the action that happened last week.

As always, let us know in the comments if we missed anything.

Soccer

  • The Wildcats were swept by the L.A. schools, losing to No. 3 USC and No. 15 UCLA by a score of 2-0, falling to 8-4-1 overall and 1-3-1 in the Pac-12. That’s the bad news. The good news is the hardest part of Arizona’s schedule is behind them, and they will have plenty of opportunities to climb the Pac-12 standings, starting this Saturday at home vs. Cal.
  • Even still, the Wildcats are 22nd in RPI, meaning they are in good shape to make the postseason. Some of those early wins against Baylor, UC Irvine and Boise State proved to be big.
  • Women’s soccer analyst Chris Henderson has UA goalkeeper Lainey Burdett as his No. 49 prospect in the 2019 NWSL Draft. The senior is Arizona’s all-time shutouts leader and has the fourth-highest save percentage in the Pac-12 (.828).

Volleyball

  • It was a rough weekend for the ‘Cats as they were swept by the Washington schools.
  • UA (14-4, 3-3 Pac-12) was swept 3-0 on Friday by No. 15 Washington. It was the first time the team had been swept in a match all season and the first loss at home.
  • On Sunday, it looked as though the Wildcats would split the weekend, but No. 22 Washington State battled back to force a fifth set, which they won 15-13.
  • UA is California dreaming this weekend as the team heads to Southern California to play USC and UCLA.

Women’s Golf

  • Junior Sandra Nordaas had a career-best finish as she shot a final round 70 (-2) to finish 3-under on the week to end the event tied for third.
  • The 15th ranked Wildcats finished third at the Windy City Classic on Tuesday.
  • UA ended the two-day event seven shots back of winner USC.
  • The defending national champions will be trick or treating and playing golf in Atlanta for the East Lake Cup event that runs from Oct. 30-Nov. 1.
