MPSF Season Opens With Back-to-Back Sweeps

Image

PROVO -- The No. 5 BYU men’s volleyball team secured an undefeated weekend after sweeping Pacific (30-21, 30-26, 30-23) Saturday night. With the win the Cougars improve to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play.

“It’s nice to play at home in the Smith Fieldhouse in front of our large crowds,” said BYU head coach Shawn Patchell. “A lot of good teams in our conference have dropped one match to start. These two wins over a good Pacific team will help prepare us for the remainder of the season.”

Robb Stowell and Andrew Stewart led the Cougars with 13 and 10 kills, respectively. Stewart has recorded double-digit kills in four of five matches this season, while Stowell also did so in the season opener against No. 2 UC Irvine.

The two attackers led BYU offensively in the first set, knocking down a combined 11 kills. Tied 5-5, the pair accounted for the Cougars’ next six points. Solo blocks by Russell Lavaja and Futi Tavana extended the BYU lead to eight, keeping the momentum in its favor. Just as he did the night before, senior Mat Taylor subbed in late to knock down the set-winning kill.

Trailing 19-16 in the second set, Sagers recorded back-to-back kills as the Cougars put together a crucial four-point run to tie things up 20-20. Strong offensive play from Stowell gave BYU the lead for good, while consecutive Tiger errors clinched the 30-26 win.

“After our big win in the first set we lost some of our intensity and focus to start the second,” said Patchell. “It was good to see us climb back in and win it.”

The Cougars never trailed in the final set, leading by as many as seven points. Lavaja notched his second ace of the night at 4-1. The sophomore middle blocker has recorded two aces in three matches so far this season. After a block by setter Yamil Perez gave BYU a 24-19 advantage, Taylor followed with a kill, which came by way of a low dig from libero Joel Silva. Stewart finished the match how he started with one final kill to secure the overall win.

Up next the Cougars host No. 3 Stanford for two matches on Jan. 22 and 23.

Image

Match Outlook

The No. 5 BYU men’s volleyball team (2-1) holds its home opener this weekend, hosting fellow Mountain Pacific Sports Federation team Pacific (4-0) at 7 p.m. MT on Friday and Saturday nights. The contests will mark the first conference matchups for both teams.

The Tigers remained perfect to open the season after a 3-0 sweep of UC Santa Cruz on Jan. 9. Pacific opened the season with an earlier win over the Banana Slugs and back-to-back victories against Grand Canyon.

Series Info

BYU holds a 23-5 lead in the series between these two teams dating back to Feb. 6, 1993. The Cougars hold an undefeated 13-0 record against the Tigers in Provo, with their most recent victories coming in 2008. BYU has won the last 9 meetings and 13 of the last 14. Three of the five wins Pacific has over BYU have come in five sets, while 15 of the Cougars’ wins have been sweeps. Most recently, BYU defeated Pacific on back-to-back nights in Feb. 2009.

Friday’s match will be broadcast live on BYU-TV. Fans may watch a live stream at www.byutv.org.

Advancing to the tournament’s final round, the Cougars dropped a close 3-1 match to No. 9 Cal State Northridge. Senior outside hitter Andrew Stewart knocked down double-digit kills in all three matches.
