Volleyball team host Dig for a Cure

Oct. 13, 2008

The Arizona volleyball team (12-5, 2-3) hosts UCLA Friday, Oct. 17 at 7:00 p.m. in McKale Center in the team's annual Dig for the Cure to raise awareness for breast cancer.

The event will be highlighted by players and fans wearing pink and all breast cancer survivors being allowed in free to the match. Representatives from the Susan G. Komen Foundation are expected to be on hand for the event, which will have prizes given out throughout the match.

The Wildcats will be looking to break up a season-long three game losing streak with all three losses coming to top-12 teams on the road. Arizona fell 3-0 at No. 5 California, 3-0 at No. 4 Stanford and 3-1 at No. 12 Colorado State.

The Bruins head into McKale as another top-ranked team. No. 10 UCLA and Arizona come into the Dig for a Cure match sitting at 2-3 in conference.

The Bruins are led by a pair of freshman, Amanda Gill and Katie Camp. Gill is second in the Pac 10 in blocks with 1.4 per set and Camp is eighth in the league in hitting percentage at .335 with 106 kills.

The Wildcats continue conference play Sunday, when they take on No. 11 USC at 1:00 p.m. in McKale Center.
