Y Spikers Complete Weekend Sweep of Bruins

Image

PROVO -- For only the third time in the programs history, and the first time since 2003, the No. 2 BYU men's volleyball team completed a weekend sweep of No. 3 UCLA 30-21, 30-23 and 33-31 Saturday night at the Smith Fieldhouse.

With the win BYU (4-0, 2-0 MPSF) remained undefeated on the season while the Bruins fell to 2-3, 0-2 MPSF.

"Any time you beat UCLA it's a great accomplishment for your team," BYU co-head coach Ryan Millar said. "The guys fought hard."

Much like last weekend's sweep over Cal. Baptist, freshman Robby Stowell led the Cougar charge Saturday night. He finished with a career-high 19 kills with five blocks while hitting .654. Ivan Perez also enjoyed a strong night with 16 kills on .542 hitting. Yamil Perez controlled the hard-hitting offense with 46 assists.

"We had a great night hitting," Millar said. "We went after their outside hitters and served well."

Rodnei Santos and Russell Holmes led a tough BYU defense that held UCLA to just .208 hitting.

Stowell set the stage immediately in the first game when he slammed down the first point of the match. The Cougars jumped out to a quick 12-5 lead. The Bruins struggled to find any type of momentum from then on as BYU continued its hot hitting to cruise to the game-one win.

Stowell had seven kills while Ivan Perez and Russell Holmes added three kills apiece as the Cougars hit a sizzling .519 as a team in the first game.

Game two started off looking like the heavyweight bout the weekend series was billed to be. The two powerhouses exchanged blows until BYU distanced itself from the Bruins at 13-9. The Cougars held a 25-18 advantage until UCLA closed the gap with a 4-1 run. BYU responded to hold the bruins to just one point the last part of the game and take the win.

The Cougars defense was tough through the first two games as the Bruins managed to hit just .164 as a team.

Unlike the first two games of the evening, the third game was a back-and-forth battle the entire way. Perez sparked the way early as BYU opened up a quick 6-2 lead. However, UCLA quickly fought its way back to take a 17-15 advantage. The Cougars followed with a 3-0 run of their own to take a one point lead. The two foes exchanged blows with neither team managing to go up by more than one point until BYU managed to score the last two points of the night to finish off the game.

The Cougars will be back in action next weekend when they travel to Stanford for a weekend series with the Cardinal.

MATCH NOTES: MPSF Play Starts with UCLA

Image

PROVO -- Coming off a weekend sweep of NAIA power Cal-Baptist, No. 2 BYU stays at home as the Cougars welcome No. 3 UCLA. The Bruins went 2-1 last weekend at the Elephant Bar Tournament hosted by UCSB. UCLA lost to No. 1 UC Irvine in the finals of the tournament.

SERIES INFORMATION

The BYU-UCLA rivalry has been one of the closest rivalries in the past three years. Since 2004, the Cougars and Bruins have split the two-match series every year. BYU does hold an 8-4 record in the last 12 matches dating back to the 1999 season.

The Bruins dominated the early years of the head-to-head match ups. UCLA won the first seven matches the two schools played and dropped only one game over that stretch. The Cougars will be looking for their first season sweep since 2003.

MATCH COVERAGE

Every home match will have a free live stats feed option. The live stats feed can be accessed by visiting the men's volleyball schedule page at www.byucougars.com.

PRESEASON EXHIBITION

BYU finished its exhibition schedule having won four of six matches. The Cougars previously played against four of Canada's best teams in Edmonton, Alberta, going 2-2 including a victory over defending Canadian Collegiate Champion Trinity Western. Impressively, the Cougars won two matches against Canada's best with just one week of practice whereas the Canadian teams had been practicing for two months.

After the Canadian tournament, BYU played two home matches against conference rival Pepperdine. The Cougars won both matches in four games.

LAST WEEK RECAP

FRIDAY--The No. 2 ranked BYU Men's Volleyball team began the 2007 campaign the same way they did the 2006 season by beating Cal Baptist in three games 30-26, 30-18, 30-25 in front of 1,631 fans at the Smith Fieldhouse Friday night. Junior Ivan Perez had a team-best 13 kills on .550 hitting percentage while All-American Russell Holmes had seven kills and on a team-high .636 hitting percentage. Freshman Robby Stowell had a stellar performance in his first match as a Cougar with 11 kills, five digs and three blocks.

SATURDAY--Freshmen Robby Stowell and Andrew Stewart paced a balanced BYU attack as the Cougars cruised to a 3-1 victory over Cal-Baptist 30-24, 30-20, 24-30, 30-21. BYU (2-0) hit over .400 in the first two games before struggling in game three and only hitting .105. The Cougars finished the match hitting at a .338 mark.

STO "WELL DONE"

In the first two matches of his collegiate career, 18-year-old true freshman Robby Stowell led BYU to a weekend sweep of three-time defending NAIA champion Cal-Baptist. In his first match, Stowell recorded 11 kills--good for second on the team in the three-game sweep--against only three attack errors. Stowell hit .400, recorded a service ace, five digs and three block assists. On Saturday evening, Stowell recorded a double-double

with 17 kills and 10 digs. He recorded a .429 hitting percentage on Saturday and picked up two block assists.

Stowell's weekend totals included 28 kills (a team-best four KPG) on a .417 hitting percentage. He started all seven games in the two matches and was second on the team over the weekend with 15 digs.

HOT HITTING

The Cougars got off to a hot start hitting the ball against Cal-Baptist last weekend. Ivan Perez, Russell Holmes and Robby Stowell all hit over .400 in BYU's two matches over the weekend. Perez hit .488 (26-5-43) for the Cougars while Holmes hit .452 (18-4-31) and Stowell hit at a .417 clip (28-8-48).

UP NEXT

The Cougars head out on the road for the first time when they travel to Stanford to take on the Cardinal. BYU will have two straight weeks on the road as the Cougars will face Stanford next week before heading to Hawaii for the Outrigger Tournament in Honolulu in two weeks.

The Cougars have won six in a row against Stanford and hold a 20-8 all-time record against the Cardinal.
