WHAT'S UP
The Ducks will head to Arizona this weekend, beginning a string of five Pac-10 Conference matches. The No. 30-ranked Arizona State Sun Devils are 8-8 (1-2 in Pac-10) for the season and face Oregon coming off two losses last weekend, to No. 27-ranked California, 4-3, and to No. 6 Stanford, 6-1. The No. 48-ranked Arizona Wildcats (10-6, 1-5 in Pac-10) hit the courts after going 1-1 last weekend, with a loss to Stanford, 5-2, and an upset win over California, 4-3.

LAST WEEK'S ACTION
The Ducks traveled to the southeast to take on three tough road matches. On Tuesday, the Ducks were swept 7-0 by the No. 10-ranked University of South Alabama Jaguars, in Mobile, Alabama. Thursday pitted the Ducks against another top-25 program, the No. 23-ranked Fresno State Bulldogs. Despite wins from freshmen Martin Pawlowski and Greg Dubourdieu in singles, the Ducks were defeated 5-2. On Sunday, Oregon finished up its southeastern road trip in Lafayette, Louisiana with a close 4-3 loss to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns. Dubourdieu picked up his second consecutive singles win with a victory at No. 5.

CONFERENCE PLAY IN APRIL
The Ducks will look to pick up their first Pac-10 victory as they finish up their regular season with five straight conference matches this month. Directly following that, Oregon will face the conference's best at the Pac-10 Championships, April 26-29.

THE LAST TIME
Oregon faced the Arizona schools last season, and put together tremendous upsets of both schools. Oregon squeaked out a 4-3 win over the Wildcats on April 7, 2000, with a big singles victory coming from sophomore Oded Teig. The victory marked Oregon's first win over Arizona since 1995. A day later the Ducks upset the Sun Devils, 5-2.
