BYU setter Carlos Moreno is thriving in his junior season as a third-year starter in one of the NCAA top men's volleyball programs.

As a sophomore, he was named Second-Team All-American for leading the Cougars to the Final Four last season. The 6-foot-4 Brazilian's strong volleyball background, considerable skills and need to excel has helped BYU achieve a ten-match winning streak in 2004. This is longest current streak among NCAA Div. I and II teams.

While setting numerous records since his freshman year at BYU including 84 assists in one match, Moreno continues to improve his knowledge of the game. He ranks third in the MPSF with 14.42 assists per game after only 10 league matches in 2004. His ability to place sets to the right hitter has helped the Cougars to a conference-leading .362 percentage.

With considerable numbers already this season, including his season-high 73 assists in the five-game upset over then No. 2 Long Beach State, Moreno ranks fourth among the top setters in the nation.

Moreno is featured as the cover story in the April issue of Volleyball Magazine, which will come out on Mar. 16, 2004. The preview of the article can be found by clicking below:
