Staff picks: May 2



Arizona softball at Washington
Arizona’s unbeatable (27-0) at home but looks almost like the arizona baseball team on the road (6-6). To ensure that they get to play at home in the big dance the team needs to win on the road and that trend starts this weekend, with games against a solid, but not unbeatable, UW squad.
Arizona 2 games, Washington 1

Arizona baseball at Oregon
The Ducks should dominate, they are ranked No. 10, are at home and unlike most Oregon teams actually have cool uniforms. However, Arizona is undefeated since they were yelled at for about an hour on Saturday night and have the talent to steal a game.
Oregon 2 games, Arizona 1

Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks
Sure, the Kings accomplished a historic comeback — going from trailing three games to winning the series against the Sharks 4-3, but at what cost? Sure, the Ducks only played one more game in their first round series but the Kings are now physically and emotionally tired after that comeback.

Arizona softball at Washington
Both teams are coming off sweeps over conference opponents and are looking to establish themselves as true contenders heading into the playoffs. Washington has an excellent group of talent, but Arizona is too hot right now. Still, expect every game to come down to the final innings, and maybe even extra.
Arizona 2 games, Washington 1

Arizona baseball at Oregon
The Wildcats are playing for pride, completely opposite of the Ducks. Last weekend, Oregon was swept by in-state rival Oregon State and dropped from No. 7 to No. 10 in the NCBWA poll. Arizona has the chance to hurt UO’s seeding in the playoffs a little more this weekend, but I don’t think it will.
Oregon 3 games, Arizona 0

Los Angeles Kings at Anaheim Ducks
There is no team in hockey with more momentum right now than the Kings. However the Ducks are more rested, and they have a better overall team than the Kings. I love the resiliency of the Kings, but I think Anaheim is too strong. In game one, I see the Ducks protecting their home ice advantage.

Arizona softball at Washington
This is the first time this season Arizona softball will face off against Washington. The Wildcats will easily dominate on the road this weekend. With a staggering 13 home runs over 3 games last weekend, the team will have no problem adding home runs and wins to its record.
Arizona 2 games, Washington 1

Arizona baseball at Oregon
I don’t know how much longer I can be optimistic about Arizona’s baseball season. The team lost another Pac-12 series against ASU despite a miraculous win in the final game of the series. As much as I would love Arizona to take the series, I don’t think that will happen.
Oregon 2 games, Arizona 1

Los Angeles Kings at Anaheim Ducks
Two SoCal teams will be fighting for the game one win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Last year, the Ducks lost in the Western Conference finals so I’m sure that makes them more determined to take the series win from the Kings. After their exciting OT victory on Sunday, the Ducks should take the win.
