Oct. 3, 2002
The No. 19 Washington State University volleyball team battled back against No. 17 Arizona for a 3-2 win before 1,023 fans at Bohler Gym.
The game scores were 28-30, 30-22, 24-30, 30-26, 15-11, as the Cougars defeated the Wildcats for the first time since 1997. Washington State improved to 12-2 overall, and 3-2 in Pac-10 play.
For the Cougars, freshman Ance Auzina came off the bench in the fourth game to replace two-time All-Pac-10 LaToya Harris and provided a spark with 16 kills with one error for a .653 hitting percentage. WSU senior Holly Harris had 17 kills (.467) and four blocks.
"Ance was the 'aunser,'" Cougar coach Cindy Fredrick said with a play on the Latvian's first name. "Having a left-hander come in, threw Arizona off a lot."
