Arizona quickly turned things around. Arizona takes on Alabama at 12:30 p.m. today in a match play format. The two remained squared at the turn, where Hou went on to win four consecutive holes.

"I think my coach really helped me a lot", Hou said. "When I have played match play, I felt good...because most of the time I just felt like I had more drama in me and I just play a little more aggressive".

"It helps a lot, for sure. It is awesome. And that I'm here with all of my teammates is wonderful".

Overall, eight Alabama golfers have earned 14 first-team honors.

In what was perhaps the most anticipated match of the day, Bianca Pagdanganan faced off against Alabama's Cheyenne Knight in the third spot. If Olson finishes second or lower in the 144-player field, she will enjoy an off week with her husband, Grant, who coaches linebackers at Indiana State. The Tide now trails 3-1-1 to Arizona with Gillman the only from Alabama leading at this point.

Despite trailing, the Wildcats were still in good shape with Sandra Nordaas playing solidly all day long in match No. 4. That's a 1-2-2 hole for Alabama with all five groups still on the front nine. But the 'Cats were saved with a Bianca Pagdanganan eagled on the last hole to force a playoff with Baylor, where Arizona eventually won. He's had a great year and he's excited he was able to finish strong and for it to not be his last event.

Haley Moore for the win! Moore almost let the course get the best of her in Round 3 when she triple-bogeyed the next-to-last hole. Moore responded to square the match at No. 13, but missed a couple birdie putts that would have extended her lead on the ensuing holes.

"Who knew that that putt could go a long way", Pagdanganan told Arizona Athletics. The biggest problem of the day was not Stephenson's surprise loss or Abe missing the last putt. A short putt gave her a two-stroke lead, but it was cut to one after pulling and misreading a 6-foot putt to bogey the 17th.

Replaying the par-5 18th hole in a sudden-death match, both players found the fairway. "That is the main thing in match play, make it hard for him - don't make any mistakes, play pars and birdies and you will be a really tough guy to beat". Ianello was right, something like this from this group was impossible just six months ago.

For all the marbles, Moore would stroke a flawless cup that would find the center of the cup.

"We're familiar with the course, not only in 2003, but we had a Ping Preview there in 2010 and the NCAAs were there in 2011 and we had the regional there, so I've got all the hole location sheets, all the yardage books, and the course hasn't changed other than just a few more added tees", Penley said. They have made me a better person and player. I just kept breathing, and my assistant coach [Derek Radley] he was by my side the whole time and was with me no matter what would have happened. She charged back late, winning three straight holes and the final hole of regular play to tie her match. The national championship begins with 72 holes of stroke play, which were a rollercoaster ride for the Wildcats.

"It was such a huge dream of mine", Pagdanganan said.
