PROVO, Utah – Televised by ESPNU, No. 13 BYU women's volleyball hosts Pepperdine on Senior Night in the Cougars' final match of the regular season on Tuesday, Nov. 26, at 8 p.m. MT.

Seniors Mary Lake, McKenna Miller, Kiani Moea'i and Riley Lyman will be honored before the match for their outstanding careers at BYU. The Cougars and Waves will then start at a special 8 p.m. MT time on the ESPNU broadcast with Paul Sunderland and Karch Kiraly on the call.

BYU Game Notes

The Cougars swept the Waves (25-21, 25-15, 29-27) in Malibu earlier this year, with three BYU hitters finishing with double-digit kills: McKenna Miller with 18, Madelyn Robinson with 16 and Heather Gneiting with 11. BYU is 27-9 against Pepperdine all-time but has won 15 straight, having not lost to the Waves since 2011.

BYU is one of 10 teams in the NVCA Top 15 that has only lost to teams ranked in the current AVCA Top 25. BYU’s four losses this year have all come against teams ranked in this week’s poll, including No. 4 Texas, No. 12 Marquette and No. 20 San Diego. The Cougars also have wins over No. 3 Stanford and No. 18 Utah.

The Cougars currently rank among leaders nationally in four major categories: No. 17 in opposing hitting percentage (.157), No. 21 in hitting percentage (.274), No. 24 in blocks per set (2.64) and No. 46 in aces per set (1.59).

Following the match, BYU will learn its postseason fate on the NCAA Selection Show on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 6:30 p.m. MT on ESPNU.
