It was so close last season. A big upset win over USC looked like it might seal the deal for Arizona soccer and put the Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament in head coach Becca Moros’ second season at the helm. Then came the season-ending loss to Arizona State, and it didn’t happen. Getting back there was the goal this season, and the Wildcats might have left some opportunities on the table in the nonconference.
“I think last year we had a more competitive schedule in the nonconference and one of the, I think, top 25 most difficult schedules in the country,” Moros said.
