By UA Hockey, 11/12/13, 11:00AM MST


Match Up: The #13 ranked Wildcat Hockey team will play host to Long Beach State this weekend in a two game series beginning Friday night at the TCC at 7:30 pm. Arizona has not squared off with LBSU since the 2005-2006 season, an Arizona sweep.

Scouting LBSU (5-7-1): The 49ers are coming off a 9-8 victory over Northridge. LBSU is led upfront by Ian Hoang, who has netted 26 points in 13 games. In net, Steven Strother is seeing the bulk of the work posting a 2-4-0 record and a .840 save percentage.

Scouting #13 Arizona (8-8-0, 3-3-0 WCHL): Arizona will likely see a bump up in the polls this week after defeating #1 Minot State University last weekend 3-2. The Wildcats have been led this season by Andrew Murmes in points with 24 in 16 games. In net, Garrett Patrick has played well as of late posting a .920 save percentage and a 2-2-0 record.

Promotions: Another big weekend a the TCC! Friday night is Tucson Soccer Club night and $1 Hot Dogs! Saturday night fans can bring their skates and skate with the Wildcats after the game!
