Former BYU volleyball player Casey Patterson and teammate Jake Gibb turned heads in the World Series of Beach Volleyball championship match in Long Beach, Calif., Sunday, coming away with a 22-20, 21-11 victory over Aleksandrs Samoilovs and Janis Smedins of Latvia.

The duos previously faced each other in the FIVB final in May in Argentina where the Latvians swept Patterson and Gibb, but the former Cougar and his partner most recently topped their opponent in straight sets earlier this month in Switzerland.
