The Wildcats (11-1) have won three straight and are led by senior outside hitter Kendra Dahlke, who overwhelmingly leads the team in kills this season (216).
Arizona struggled in conference play last season, going 5-15. ASU, which enters Thursday’s match 9-3, went 0-20 (!) in the Pac-12 last season.
Both teams are expected to improve this season, so Thursday’s match should be a competitive one — as are all UA-ASU sporting events.
Dahlke and UA head coach Dave Rubio met with the media Tuesday to preview the match, and here are their respective interviews:
