LOS ANGELES -- Arizona Volleyball fell in straight sets on Sunday afternoon at UCLA (25-14, 25-19, 25-20), dropping both matches vs. the 15th-ranked Bruins this weekend.

After a very closely-contested four-set loss on Friday, the Bruins dominated the match on Sunday, hitting .294 to Arizona's .112 figure while acing the Wildcats seven times over the three sets.

Soifa Maldonado Diaz led Arizona with 10 kills, while Paige Whipple had seven kills and eight digs in the loss. Jaelyn Hodge posted six kills on a team-best .308 hitting percentage.

With the loss, the Wildcats fell to 4-8 on the season; all eight of UA's losses have come to teams currently ranked in the top-25 and six of those have come on the road. Arizona is back in action next week with a home-and-home with rival Arizona State. UA plays ASU on Friday at 2 p.m. in McKale and then faces the Sun Devils at 4 p.m. in Tempe on Sunday. Both matches will be televised by Pac-12 Arizona.
