PROVO, Utah – The Brigham Young University men’s volleyball team opens play in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament on April 15 against Stanford.
The Cougars will enter the tournament on a hot streak, as they are currently ranked No. 3 in the country and have won 17 of the past 18 matches. The streak includes two road wins at Stanford in late February. Their success has been due in large part to junior Ben Patch and senior Jake Langlois, both recently named to the ALL-MPSF first team.
Despite two victories earlier in the season, Head Coach Shawn Olmstead is determined to not overlook the Cardinal.
“The guys want more, and the guys want to continue playing,” Olmstead said. “We believe that we’ve got a lot more. And so, you know, I’ve told the guys nothing’s given from here on out.”
The Cougars are a two seed in this year’s tournament. If they advance to the semi-finals and finals, they will likely head to California. #1 seed Long Beach State is set to host the remainder of the tournament if they win their quarter-final match.
BYU men’s volleyball has won the MPSF Tournament 3 of the last 4 years. In order to make it 4 of 5 years, the Cougars will need a strong effort from everyone involved.
