BYU volleyball: women’s volleyball ready for final home matches
PROVO – The No. 24 BYU women’s volleyball team returns to the Smith Fieldhouse this week for its final two home matches of the season against Gonzaga and Portland.
The Cougars (20-5, 13-2 West Coast Conference) split a pair of matches on the road last week against San Francisco and Santa Clara. BYU first swept the Dons but then fell to the Broncos in four sets. The loss leaves the Cougars in a tie for first place in WCC play with San Diego.
BYU will first face Gonzaga (11-12, 7-7 WCC) on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. MST. The Cougars swept the Bulldogs in their first matchup in Spokane. BYU holds an 8-1 advantage in the overall series between the two squads.
On Saturday, Nov. 16, the Cougars will take on Portland (0-23, 0-14 WCC) at 11 a.m. MST. BYU beat the Pilots, 3-0, on the road earlier this season. The Cougars have never lost to Portland, leading the series 5-0.
BYU is ranked in the AVCA Coaches Poll for the sixth consecutive week and the eighth week of the season.
Thursday’s match will be broadcast live on BYUtv. Links to live stats for both matches can be found on the BYU women’s volleyball schedule page.
