“It’s going to be an alumni match, so we’re going to have a lot of former players there,” BYU coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We’re really going to have a great atmosphere out there.”

With the win on Monday, the Cougars (8–9, 1–4 WCC) broke out of their four-match losing streak and topped a ranked opponent for the first time since last season on March 3, 2012. Monday also marked the end of losing streaks for junior Desiree Tran and sophomore Morgan Anderson.

BYU is now 6–1 at home this season, with its only loss coming against in-state rival Utah on March 2.

Gonzaga (9–8, 0–5 WCC) is currently in last place in the West Coast Conference and coming off a 2–5 defeat to Idaho on Wednesday. The Bulldogs last victory came in Florida against Radford University on March 15.

The Cougars and Bulldogs face off at noon on Saturday. Admission to the match is free and pizza will be provided.
