Hamson and Sander lead high flying Cougar squads.

Jennifer Hamson leads the Cougars against Gonzaga - Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Behind Jennifer Hamson and Taylor Sander, the women's basketball and men's volleyball teams are achieving success with exciting play.

With a big win of Saint Mary's last Saturday, the BYU men moved into sole possession of second place in the WCC. The BYU women are also sitting at second place, but were able to take down league leading Gonzaga last Saturday afternoon, a feat the men will hope to repeat when they host the Bulldogs this Thursday.

Women's Basketball

BYU women's basketball team has continued to flourish with help from standout center Jennifer Hamson, and is poised to get a bid to the women's tournament this March. With only three games remaining, BYU will probably need to win at least two of them to keep hold on second place. BYU has now shown that it has the capability to beat any team in the conference and with the #2 seed has a good shot a the conference tournament championship. Don't miss your final chance to see them in Provo on March 1st at 1PM, ending the regular season hosting San Diego in what could potentially be a battle for the #2 seed.

Men's Volleyball

The men's volleyball team has also continued it's outstanding season moving slowly up the rankings cracking the top 5 at the beginning of February and getting the #2 spot in this weeks rankings. The Cougars have only lost once (to current #4 Pepperdine) since their season opening back to back losses in Chicago, and have knocked off five top ten teams (Stanford twice) in that span. (Additionally their season opening loss to then #7 Loyola doesn't look as bad since the 1-loss Ramblers have occupied the #1 spot for much of the season to date.)

If you're looking to experience for yourself some of this great volleyball action, the Cougars will be in town again next weekend taking on top ten teams USC (Feb. 28) and Pepperdine (Mar. 1) seeking to avenge their loss to the Waves earlier this season. BYU will be playing in the Smith Field House after 5 road games and will be hoping to ride the momentum and energy of their home court and continue to separate themselves from the rest of the MPSF competition. Games start at 7PM and will also be broadcast on BYUtv.

Baseball/Softball

Baseball and softball have both started their seasons, traveling to the warmth of Arizona and Nevada. Both start their home games in March with Baseball leading off on the 4th, while the Softball team will travel to several invitationals before making their Provo debut on March 25th.
