BYU Faces Arizona State and Arizona

In the second half of a four-matches-in-five-days road trip, eighth-ranked BYU travels to Arizona to play Arizona State Monday and No. 18 Arizona Tuesday in women's volleyball action.

The Cougars are 15-3 overall and 1-1 so far on the road trip, losing 0-3 to No. 15 Colorado State Friday before defeating Wyoming 3-0 Saturday. Arizona State is 10-7 overall and Arizona 12-7 after both schools suffered Pac-10 loses last week to nationally ranked UCLA and USC.

"We have played a lot of road matches so far this year and this will be a tough stretch playing four times in five nights against some very good teams," said BYU coach Elaine Michaelis. "Arizona State and Arizona are both very good teams."

BYU is tied for first in the Mountain West Conference at 6-1 record and leads the conference in hitting and blocking. Anna-Lena Smith of Mesa, Ariz., (Gilbert HS) set BYU's all-time assist record Saturday against Wyoming. She has 5,355 assists as a four-year starter.
