Jose Toro | The Daily Wildcat Arizona head volleyball coach Dave Rubio talks to his team during the Wildcats' match with the Oregon State Beavers on Nov. 9 in McKale Center. The Wildcats lost 0-3 to the Beavers.

After a disappointing 11-18 season last year, Arizona volleyball is looking to bounce back this season and finish with a winning record, along with a postseason birth.

The road ahead of this Arizona team is one of the hardest in the nation, with the Pac-12 having several national title contenders, including Stanford and Washington.  

The 'Cats schedule includes a total of 32 matches with 16 home games at McKale Center. In addition, 20 of Arizona’s 32 games will be conference games, with sixteen of them being televised by the Pac-12 Network.
