NCAA Selection Sunday into the ’Big Dance’ is always a fun day, regardless of the sport — or if you happen to be one of the programs left looking from the outside in at the field of 64 teams.
The NCAA announced its 2010 women’s volleyball tournament brackets on Sunday.
Among the opening round matchups is a Wildcat-on-Wildcat contest pitting the University of Arizona (20-11) against Northwestern (19-11) in the first round of the University Park, Pennsylvania Region.
The Wildcats square off against one another on Dec. 3 in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The victor advances to face the winner between the University of Northern Iowa and Missouri.
Arizona has never won an NCAA volleyball title. But that doesn’t mean the Wildcats are confident:
“First victim northwestern !!!! Let’s go!!!!!!!!”

Lookin At Lute
Think Bob Baffert is a proud University of Arizona alumnus? Who else besides an ex-Wildcat would name a thoroughbred Midnight Lute – after former UA basketball coach Lute Olson?
And while the three-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer had mild success with Midnight Lute, he padded his legendary résumé this season with another thoroughbred Lookin At Lucky.
Baffert retired the 3-year-old Lucky earlier this month, sending him to stud after wins at the Preakness Stakes and Haskell Invitational Handicap.
