    The Buffs (15-10, 7-8) are traveling to Tuscon today at 2pm to face Arizona (18-9, 8-7). The Buffs are trying to end a four match losing streak in which they've only won one set, while Arizona has won 3 of 4 and is trying to revenge a sweep at the hands of the Buffs in October. Sunday’s contest will be televised regionally on the Pac-12 Networks. Kevin Barnett will handle the play-by-play duties and Al Scates will provide the commentary. Here is a short preview from cubuffs.com:

    An upset today would be the last gasp at earning a tourney bid. A .500 record in the Pac-12 with some of the notable wins might be enough to sway the committee. A loss and this dream is close to dead.

    Concur. I kind of viewed the losses v. Cal and ASU to be the closing of that door. On the other hand, win on the road in Tuscon, take care of the next three home matches (which should be wins) and who knows? USC on the road might be asking a bit much, though.

    That first set was so bad I was afraid the team had quit. 2nd set is still not the level of intensity I've seen them play with, though. Started out with a lot of Zona errors. Now after the timeout, Zona is blocking everything and the Buffs are back to hitting errors.

    9-7

    Taylor Simpson just doesn't look right. Pretty clear that she's been playing injured. She's getting nothing on the ball.

    I don't know what happened. I'm guessing they lost.
