BYU's women's volleyball team solidified its position as the 12th best squad in the nation by sweeping 16th-ranked Arizona 15-11, 15-9, 15-5 Thursday afternoon in the Smith Fieldhouse.

The regional triumph, which BYU coach Elaine Michaelis said was "critical" for BYU's chances for a bid to nationals later in the season, lifted BYU to 7-1 on the year, and dropped Arizona to 8-3.
