PROVO -- After dropping a close one to Utah Saturday, the BYU women’s volleyball team will be back in the Smith Fieldhouse to host North Dakota State Tuesday at 7 p.m.

“North Dakota State is a great team,” said BYU head coach Shay Goulding. “They are coming off seven-straight wins and are excited for the opportunity to compete with us in the Smith Fieldhouse. Our girls are determined to win at home and will treat them with the respect they deserve by being prepared, focused and ready to win.”

Tuesday will mark the first meeting between the two teams.

Saturday the Cougars will also face conference foe, UNLV, in Las Vegas.

“UNLV is a strong program that has gotten better every year,” said Goulding. “It is important that we go down and win the serve and serve-receive battle. A win in Las Vegas will be crucial for a good position at the Mountain West title.”

BYU leads the UNLV-BYU series 21-6, with the Rebels taking three of the last four matches.

The last time out at Utah on Saturday in front of a record-high 1,747 fans, the Utes creeped by the Cougars in five. Senior rightside hitter Kayla Walker came out with 19 kills and 11 digs on the night, her fourth double-double of the season. Camilla Phillips had a career-high eight kills while Kiana Rogers posted 41 assists. Morgan Lloyd Sorensen held up the back row with 21 digs as Christina Measom had a career-high 11 blocks, the highest for any Cougar this season.
