October 27, 2016
The Pac-12 women's volleyball league continues to be one of the most
competitive leagues in the nation. Seven out of the 12 teams still have a chance to win the league championship going into the month of November.
This weekend UCLA and USC continue their quest to win the title and get a high seed in the NCAA tournament.
UCLA will play Colorado tonight at 6 p.m. in the John Wooden Center on the UCLA campus and on Saturday they battle Utah at 8 p.m. in Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins, who are currently 16-4 overall and 7-3 in the Pac-12 defeated Stanford and California last weekend. They won both of their matches by the score of 3-1.
UCLA is tied for second place in the Pac-12 with two other teams.
USC is 14-7 overall and 6-4 in league play. They are tied for fourth place with Utah in the Pac-12. Last weekend the Trojans beat California and lost to Stanford.
"We have to be more determined," said USC head Mick Haley after the loss to Stanford last Sunday at USC. "We have 10 matches left and now it's time to try to win those matches. We took September to really get to know each other. We took October to fine tune our system and now we have to win in November. We have to fight in November. That's the message I want to send to my team."
The Trojans face Utah tonight (Friday) at 8 p.m. and play Colorado Saturday at 5 p.m. Both matches will be played at the Galen Center on the USC campus.
