The Arizona Wildcats volleyball team is on the road this weekend where they will face No. 12 Oregon and (RV) Oregon State.
The 24th-ranked Wildcats (12-2, 1-1 Pac-12) are coming off a week in which they swept in-state rival ASU, then fell No. 2 Stanford on the road in four sets.
We caught up with head coach Dave Rubio, who reflected on the loss to Stanford and previewed what’s ahead in Oregon.

We also talked to setter Julia Patterson, who leads the Pac-12 in assists, and outside hitter Paige Whipple. (The interviews were limited due to time constraints because student-athletes have to go to class.)
