Washington got 15 kills and a match-high nine digs from Kristina Laffling, who managed to hit a respectable .273. Allison Napier led Arizona with 19 kills and eight blocks while Marisa DaLee hit .615 with nine kills and nine blocks.
Arizona out-blocked the Huskies as a team, 17-15, the first time in six matches this season that the Huskies have been out-blocked. In game one Sunday, the Dawgs got eight blocks to the Wildcats' two. Washington hit .211 in that game and then never better .097 in any game after that.
The Huskies complete their five-match homestand next Friday when they take on Washington State.
