WCC All-Access Games Of The Week

Nov. 9, 2006

Pepperdine (12-10/8-3) at Saint Mary's (9-12/4-6)
Location: McKeon Pavilion - Moraga, Calif.
Date: November 9
Time: 7:00 PM (PST)

The first of two matches on the WCC All-Access video streaming package features second-place Pepperdine at Saint Mary's. The Waves enter the match sporting an 8-3 WCC record, and are coming off of a 2-0 week in which they swept then-No. 20 Santa Clara and handed San Diego its first conference loss of the season. The Gaels are 4-6 in league play after losing to Bay Area rival USF last week. Saint Mary's will look to play spoiler in the match; a Pepperdine loss combined with a San Diego win would knock the Waves out of contention for the WCC title. However, Pepperdine swept the Gaels in the last meeting between these two teams and holds a 35-4 advantage in the all-time series since 1985. Tonight's match is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM and can be accessed for free on WCCsports.com.

Gonzaga (8-17/3-7) at Santa Clara (18-6/7-4)
Location: Leavey Center - Santa Clara, Calif.
Date: November 11
Time: 1:00 PM (PST)

In the second volleyball matchup of the week featured live on WCCsports.com All-Access, Gonzaga visits No. 22 Santa Clara. The Broncos split a pair of matches last week but enter Saturday's game having won three of their last five. Gonzaga got off to a rocky start in WCC play but has turned around of late, winning three of its last five matches to improve to 3-7 in conference matches. The Bulldogs dropped a 3-2 decision to Santa Clara in their last meeting, but have pushed nine teams to the limit this season, winning four of those matches, including the past two. Santa Clara owns a 24-match winning streak against the Zags dating back to 1994 and is looking to secure a spot in the top half of the final WCC standings this weekend. First serve is scheduled for 1:00 PM on Saturday, with video streaming available on the West Coast Conference's offical website, WCCsports.com.
