The Arizona Wildcats volleyball team is back in action this weekend when they host the Wildcat Classic in McKale Center to wrap up non-conference play.
The Wildcats (8-1) are coming off a loss to New Mexico State in Las Cruces, but will get another crack at the Aggies on Friday at 7 p.m. MST.
Arizona will also face Tennessee-Martin (6-4) and UC Davis (7-2) on Friday and Saturday, respectively. The Wildcats received votes in this week’s AVCA poll, meaning they are just outside the Top 25.
Here are head coach Dave Rubio’s thoughts on that, the loss to New Mexico State and lots more:

And here is a bonus clip of Rubio talking about nearing the 500- win mark, which he can reach this weekend. Only one other Pac-12 coach has achieved that milestone:
