After pushing No.4 Washington to 5 sets a week and a half ago, the Golden Bears came out flat against the Oregon schools last week. Bears were swept in both matches by the unranked Oregon State and No.11 Oregon. It's a rather forgettable performances by the Bears.

The Golden Bears will look to bounce back when they hit the road this week to the Arizona schools. Unfortunately, the schedule is actually tougher this week as both of the Arizona schools are ranked.

Golden Bears are lead offensively this year by senior Christina Higgins as the opposite. Defensively, the Bears are lead by sophomore libero in Maddy Kerr.

Here is Kerr talking about her famous father, head coach of the Golden State Warriors in Steve Kerr, who also happened to have a nice collegiate career at Arizona before winning championships with the Bulls and then Spurs.

Can the Bears find a way to get their first Pac-12 victory of the season this week? Bears will play Arizona State on Friday night with that match streamed for free on Pac-12 Digital.
