It's not quite the November bonanza or February frenzy, but the spring signing period started yesterday and there was quite a bit of work done in the Conference of Champions. For starters, Arizona officially inked Aaron Gordon, the No. 4 recruit in the country according to ESPN. Can't beat his hops, five-star ranking, or the fact that he's from San Jose.


On Monday and Tuesday, tee times will be off No. 1 and No. 10 beginning at 8:30 a.m. On Wednesday, tee times begin at 8 a.m.


The Pac-12 Conference announced today an all-star team of Pac-12 women's volleyball student-athletes that will represent the conference in China in June. The team's six-game tour will consist of matches against some of the top professional volleyball club teams in China as well as the chance to experience the cultural history of the country. The team will be led by legendary USC head coach Mick Haley, who was named the 2011 Pac-12 women's volleyball Coach of the Year. "This type of tour can be a transformative moment for our student-athletes," said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.

Last year was a winner for Pac-12 volleyball fans.

The conference sent seven teams to the NCAAs and Oregon advanced to the title match, the third year in a row a Conference squad has played for the national championship. Pac-12 Networks aired 82 matches, providing unprecedented exposure for the sport.
