This Week in Fastpitch

No. 1 vs. No. 2: Top-ranked Arizona and No. 2 UCLA will square off Friday night at 10 p.m. EST. The Wildcats swept a doubleheader earlier this season from UCLA when the Bruins were ranked No. 1. The game will be televised live on College Sports Television (DirecTV Channel 610).

Texas is King: The Longhorns swept the 2003 Big 12 regular season and conference tournament titles last week, and are looking forward to hosting a regional in Austin. Texas went 4-0 in the Big 12 tournament behind the arm of Louisville Slugger/NFCA Player of the Week Cat Osterman. Osterman threw three complete games, including a pair of 1-0 shutout wins over Oklahoma.

0.07: No, not seven cents. That is Cat Osterman's ERA against Big 12 teams this season. The sophomore compiled a 14-1 record against the Big 12, giving up just one earned run in 97 2/3 innings pitched.
