Non-Revenue Roundup: Chandler Hoffman Stars at Combine, Men's Volleyball Falls to UCI, Women's Hoops Splits in Arizona, and Women's Gymnastics Opens With a Win

It's Monday morning (well noon for those of you on the East Coast) and we're creeping closer to the finale of this year's college football season. While it means another long eight months until September 1 and the kick-off of the 2012 season, it does mean it's the time of the year where we transition into a new season for many of our non-revenue sports.

So before we get to the SEC love-fest tonight, let's take a quick few minutes to recap how our non-revenue sports fared this past week, including a few that got their seasons underway:

  • Starting with our women's basketball team, the ladies went down to the desert for a weekend road trip against the Arizona schools, beginning with the Arizona Lady Mildcats Wildcats on Thursday night. Unfortunately, Coach Cori Close's team came up short, falling to Arizona 74-66. The Bruins were led by Markel Walker's double-double (12 points, 12 rebounds), got good games from Thea Lemberger (17 points, 5 assists, 1 steal), Rebekah Gardner (12 points, 8 rebounds), and a just-short-of-a-double-double performance by Corinne Costa (8 points, 7 rebounds), but it was all for naught as the Wildcats ran out of the buildings with the win.
  • The ladies followed up Thursday's disappointing loss by following in their male counterpart's shoes, blowing out the Arizona State Sun Devils in Tempe, 64-48. Markel Walker picked up another double-double (15 points, 13 rebounds), while Thea Lemberger lit up the scoreboard with 22 points. Rebekah Gardner had an outstanding night, contributing 16 points and 8 rebounds in the UCLA winning effort. With the weekend split, the ladies now stand at 7-8 for the season and 2-2 in Pac-12 play. They'll next be in action against hated U$C on Saturday, Jan. 14.

And with that, that is your non-revenue roundup for this past week. Another split weekend for Cori Close as her squad struggles to find consistency and reach .500 for the season, in an otherwise exciting week with the return of men's volleyball (despite their loss to UC Irvine) and women's gymnastics.

Fire away with your thoughts, comments, additions, or analysis in the thread. If you're waiting for the BCS championship game, sit tight: the open thread will be up later this afternoon.
