Arizona Volleyball head coach Dave Rubio has won his 500th game as a Wildcat coach as UA defeated New Mexico State in straight sets.

"I'm glad we are able to do it tonight," said Rubio. "It was a terrific crowd supporting me and the volleyball program. It's good to win. It's a lot better than the alternative."

"It's awesome because he's been here for so long," said senior outside hitter Kendra Dahlke. "We're all proud of Dave and it's awesome to be a part of it with him."

It was actually Rubio's 2nd win of the day, as his team defeated Tennessee-Martin earlier in the day as part of the Wildcat Classic.

Rubio is in his 27th season with the Wildcats after starting his career at Cal-State Bakersfield.
