Another 3-0 Win for the Cougars

Outside hitter Jaime Mayol registered a season-high 12 kills in the Cougars' 3-0 win against UC Santa Barbara on Friday.

PROVO -- In their fourth three-game match of the season, the BYU Cougars defeated the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos 30-26, 30-24, 30-24 in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation contest Friday night. BYU improves to 8-1 overall and in the MPSF with the win, while the Gauchos fall 4-10 overall, 1-7 in conference play.

The BYU outside hitters were the stars in this match, with senior Rafael Paal leading the Cougars with 13 kills and a .600 average. Senior Jaime Mayol and junior Jonathan Alleman both registered 12 kills on the night, with Mayol recording a match-high .647 hitting percentage, four digs and three blocks.

"Mayol and Paal had a nice night according to the stats," BYU head coach Tom Peterson said. "Our outsides were the two highest hitters; that's probably a first for us."

Sophomore middle blocker Michael Burke, who leads the MPSF in hitting with a .522 average for the season, hit a lower-than-usual .385 average with seven kills. However, he did lead the defense for the Cougars, recording five block assists. Setter Carlos Moreno guided the Cougar offense with 43 assists and was a major player on defense with four block assists.

Overall, the Cougars hit a team season-high .466 average and out-blocked the Gauchos 10-5.

"We tried to go with a certain game plan," Peterson said. "We picked up on some of their weaknesses and tried to aim for those. It's nice to see a good game plan executed."

Leading the Gauchos with nine kills each were Matt Boelk, Keith Busam and Michael Kennedy.

The Cougars and Gauchos will have a rematch Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. (PST).
