Men's Volleyball: BYU Enters Postseason Play, Hosts Long Beach State

After falling just one victory short of an MSPF regular season title, BYU begins postseason play Saturday night in the Smith Fieldhouse against the Long Beach State 49ers.

This is a veritable golden age for the Cougars, who have several all-timers on the current roster, including Rob Stowell, who is second in BYU career kills, Futi Tavana, who is BYU's career blocks leader, and one of the most dynamic players in BYU history, Taylor Sander, who will compete for the opportunity represent the United States at the London Games this summer.

BYU has high expectations for this postseason. After suffering several regular season losses due to injuries, BYU - the only team in the nation that won both sets against top-ranked USC - is back to full strength.

First up is a Long Beach State team that has shown they can beat the Cougars. BYU and Long Beach State split their regular season meetings with BYU taking the first match in three games and then losing the second match in five, but BYU has one of the most significant home court advantages in the nation, regularly drawing over 4,000 fans.

The game will be at 7:00 MT on BYUtv.
