PROVO, Utah – BYU women’s volleyball will travel to Los Angeles on Friday to face No. 6 USC in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament.

After beating Arizona State in a five-set thriller in the first round of the tournament last Friday, the Cougars swept No. 11 Hawaii on their home court on Saturday to advance to the third round.

BYU will face USC for the 18th time in school history. The Trojans hold an 11-6 advantage on the Cougars in the overall series. This is the first matchup between the two schools since they faced each other in the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2006. USC swept BYU in that match.

Should the Cougars defeat the Trojans in the regional semifinals, BYU would advance to the Elite 8 for the first time since 2007. The Cougars would face the winner of No. 2 Washington and No. 14 Kansas, who also play in the Los Angeles regional semifinals.


Fans may purchase tickets for BYU’s match online at, over the phone by calling (213) 740-GOSC or in person at USC's Student Union Ticket Office between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. On the day of the match, tickets may be purchased at the Galen Center box office up to 90 minutes prior to the start of the first match. The box office is located at the northwest corner of the arena at the intersection of Figueroa Street and Jefferson Blvd.

Tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for children (3 years and up), seniors and students with a valid ID. All tickets are reserved seating. Courtside reserved tickets are $30.
