Offensive Outburst Fuels Sweep of USC

Image

LOS -- Yosleyder Cala's near-record performance and an overall offensive onslaught led No. 3 BYU to a dominating sweep over No. 12 USC, 30-22, 30-22 and 30-25. The win gives the Cougars a weekend sweep of the Trojans and pushes BYU's overall winning streak to 12 over USC.

Cala led the Cougars (13-4, 9-3 MPSF) with 19 kills on just 21 swings while committing no errors. Cala's .905 hitting performance is second all-time in BYU rally scoring history. Not far behind Cala, Robby Stowell knocked down 17 kills while hitting at a .727 clip. As a team, BYU hit an astounding .571 while committing only nine hitting errors. Ivan Perez had nine kills and hit .615 while Russell Holmes had seven and swung .600.

"Our passing anchored by Joel Silva and Perez was exceptional," co-head coach Shawn Patchell said. "Our passing made us very potent offensively tonight."

USC held an early lead in the first set, jumping to a quick 8-6 advantage. The Cougars bounced back and scored four consecutive points to take their first lead at 10-8 on Rodnei Santos and Stowell block. Later in the match, BYU extended its lead to five at 18-13 with another Stowell kill. After the Cougars extended their lead to eight with a Cala kill, BYU finished USC when Stowell knocked down the Cougars' second game point.

BYU came out on fire in the second set jumping to a quick 9-4 lead on back-to-back kills from Santos and Stowell. The Cougars remained in control, extending their lead to nine at 16-7 on a block by Holmes and Stowell. Later in the game, Cala knocked down a kill as BYU build a 10-point advantage. The Cougars later finished the Trojans with a Santos' kill.

In the third set, BYU and USC played closely early on with the Cougars maintaining three and four-point leads throughout. WIth BYU ahead 20-17, the Cougars finished the game on a 10-7 run. Stowell put the Trojans away with his 17th kill.

"Yamil Perez had his best match of the season tonight," Patchell said. "I credit Yamil and Joel [Silva] for setting our offense up so well."

BYU heads back out on the road next week as they face off against UC Santa Barbara next weekend in a pair of matches.

MATCH NOTES: Road Trip Starts at USC

Image

PROVO -- After taking care of business at home by sweeping Hawaii in two straight matches last weekend, BYU heads to Southern California for three consecutive road trips starting this weekend against USC. The Cougars will compete in Southern California for most of the month of March, taking on UCSB next week and Cal. State Northridge in three weeks. BYU will also have a bye week in March between the UCSB and Northridge matches. The Cougars next home matches will be Mar. 29-30 against Long Beach State.

SERIES INFORMATION

BYU has dominated the overall series with USC. The Cougars own a 20-7 overall record since BYU's first Division I season in 1990. Overall, the Cougars have won 20 out of the last 23. BYU's current 10-match winning streak over the Trojans is its second longest current winning streak (UC San Diego, 20). The last USC win was Feb. 28, 2001 in Los Angeles. BYU has won 15 of the last 16 in the series.

Along with its current 10-match winning streak, the Cougars own two separate five match winning runs. The Trojans own a four-match winning streak (after winning the first four matches between the two teams) and a two-match run.

LUCKY NUMBER .300

BYU is a perfect 11-0 this season in matches that they hit over .300. Conversely, the Cougars are 0-4 in matches where they hit under .300.

SEASON'S TWO BEST KILL PERFORMANCES...

The two weekend matches against Hawaii showcased BYU's two best individual kill efforts...all in the same night. On Friday evening, Yosleyder Cala set a team season high with 26 kills on .639 hitting. Not far behind him was Ivan Perez, who notched the second best team kill total with 23 while hitting .529.

HOLMES RECORD WATCH

Russell Holmes created a wall in the Saturday evening Hawaii match. In the sweep, Holmes knocked down seven block assists and a career high four block solos in just three sets. The four block solos ranks second alone all-time in BYU history. The Cougars record for block solos is five by Kevin Hambly on Feb. 29, 1992 against Ball State.

Holmes is currently second in the nation with 17 block solos. He is just five block solos away from tying the record of 22 held by co-head coach Ryan Millar.
