Win at UCLA Clinches Regular-Season Title

LOS -- Clinching the Mountain Pacific Sport Federation regular-season title, the No. 1-ranked BYU men's volleyball team overcame a tight four-game contest against third-ranked UCLA at Pauley Pavilion. The Cougars now extend to a 21-match win streak, including a nation-leading 22-3 record and 18-1 in the MPSF. The game scores were 33-31. 30-26, 29-31, 32-30.

"We ended up with a nice win," BYU head coach Tom Peterson said. "We gutted it out in the fourth game when we were down a few points. The guys looked a little tired towards the end, but turned it around after some long rallies. I think both teams will play a better match tomorrow night."

Senior outside hitter Fernando Pessoa led BYU with 20 kills and added three blocks, while senior opposite Joe Hillman chipped in a double-double performance with 16 kills and a career-high 10 digs. Senior outside hitter Jonathan Alleman also pitched in a double-double with 12 kills and a career-high 13 digs in the win.

Junior middle blocker Mike Burke contributed 10 kills, five blocks and five digs, while hitting a solid .471 percentage on the night. Junior setter Carlos Moreno paced the Cougar attack with 60 assists, three kills and eight digs.

BYU hit a .359 average, while UCLA finished with a .244 percentage. The Cougars out-blocked the Bruins, 12-7, and led with 51 digs for the match. In the second game, BYU took advantage with a strong hitting percentage at .448 (17-4-29), holding the opponent to only a .077 average (12-9-39) for the game.

The Cougars will meet the Bruins again on Friday, Apr. 9 at Pauley Pavilion. The match is set for 7 p.m. (PST).
