Second round exit leaves BYU women’s volleyball pondering on first year in Big 12

BYU Women’s Vollleyball invited the Sundevils of Arizona St. into the Smith Fieldhouse on Dec 2.

The Cougars were overwhelmed by the Sundevils, losing in straight sets, bringing their hopes to make a deep run in the tournament to a resounding halt.  

As BYU did not meet the expectations they were hoping to, there was a lot of good that came from the first year in the Big 12. 

The Cougars started the season 8-0 winning 24 of the 28 sets played, dominating in almost every facet of the game. 

Erin Livingston tallied 446 kills this season.  She had the most kills on the team this season, setting a personal season high for her career.  

Whitney Bower showed a lot of ways she could affect the game by blocking and setting up her teammates for easy shots.  

There was a lot of praise that came from coaches and fans about the play Whitney had this season, this was done by the way BYU was able to pass the ball.  

When the Cougars were able to pass the ball to Bowers effectively, that allowed her to do what she wanted to do with the ball.  

BYU finished with a 25-7 record on the season.  They went 13-5 in their first year in the big 12, 13-2 at home and 8-5 on the road.  

As talk about BYU women’s volleyball flooded campus, people were excited to go to these games and see this team excel in a power 5 conference. 

Fans continued to pack out the Smith Fieldhouse no matter who BYU was playing, giving them an edge in every home game they had.  

BYU will bring back a lot of production next year, in hopes to find a way to make a deeper run into the NCAA tournament.
