    Trojans Look for Best Ever Pac-10 Finish

    USC Plays No. 9 Arizona, Arizona State

    THIS WEEK -- The USC women's volleyball team (20-4 overall, 12-4 in the Pacific-10 Conference, in second place), completes the regular season by traveling to the desert to take on Arizona (19-5, 11-5, tied for third place) on Friday (Nov. 21) before finishing at Arizona State (13-14, 4-12, eighth place) on Saturday (Nov. 22). Both matches are at 6 p.m. PST. If USC maintains its current second-place standing in the Pac-10 (the Women of Troy have a one-game lead on third-place Washington and Arizona), it would mark the program's highest Pac-10 finish ever. One win this weekend would guarantee at least a second-place tie and two wins would clinch sole possession of second place.

    RANKINGS -- USC is No. 7 in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Top 25 Poll. Arizona is No. 9. Arizona State is not ranked.

    LAST WEEK -- USC swept No. 24 UCLA, 15-2, 15-8, 15-13, on Friday night at the North Gym. USC was led by junior middle blocker Alaina Kipps' 11 blocks (4 solo) and junior middle blocker Jasmina Marinkovic's 11 kills. The win, coupled with USC's victory earlier this year at Pauley Pavilion, marks the first Pac-10 series sweep of UCLA since 1987. The win also gives USC 3 victories in a row over UCLA for the first time since a 3-match span in 1981-82. On Friday, USC jumped out early on UCLA in the first game, going up 5-1 before scoring the last 10 points to take a 1-0 lead. The Women of Troy got out fast in the second game as well, turning a 4-3 edge into a 12-3 lead with 8 consecutive points. UCLA made it close with a 5-0 run, but couldn't complete the rally. Game 3 was tied at 13-13, but a Kipps kill and a Bruin hitting error ended the match. USC, which also got 10 kills apiece from junior outside hitter Jennifer Kessy and freshman outside hitter Antoinette Polk and 41 assists from junior setter Janice Mounts, hit a blazing .538 in the first game and outblocked UCLA overall, 15-4.

    ARIZONA -- USC defeated Arizona, 15-1, 15-4, 15-3, in the first meeting on Sept. 20 in Los Angeles, handing the Wildcats their first loss of the season and their worst loss in school history. Jasmina Marinkovic led USC with 10 kills and no Wildcat had more than 5 kills. The Wildcats, headed by sixth-year coach David Rubio, have gone 10-4 since the first meeting. Arizona is led by senior outside hitter Carolyn Penfield, who has a team-high 345 kills, 39 aces and 211 digs, and sophomore middle blocker/outside hitter Erin Aldrich, who has 210 kills and a team-high 91 blocks. Senior outside hitter Michelle Fanger has 199 kills. Rubio is the brother of second-year USC volunteer assistant coach Keith Rubio. USC leads the series with Arizona, 34-10, and has won 7 in a row over the Wildcats.

    ARIZONA STATE -- USC beat Arizona State, 15-4, 15-3, 15-4, in the first match-up this year on Sept. 19. Jennifer Kessy led USC with 16 kills and 10 digs and Terri Cox led Arizona State with 9 kills. Ninth-year coach Patti Snyder-Park and the Sun Devils have gone 3-10 since the first meeting. The Sun Devils are paced by senior outside hitter Terri Cox, who leads them in kills (399), kill average (4.16) and digs (337). Senior middle blocker Kirstin Mattson has a team-high 133 blocks and sophomore setter Jolynn Faatulu has a team-high 953 assists. USC leads the series against Arizona State, 32-10-1, and has won 3 consecutive matches over the Sun Devils.

    Love
    Coach Lisa Love has 102 Pac-10 victories.

    NOTES, MILESTONES, ETC. -- USC Coach Lisa Love notched her 100th career Pac-10 match win recently against Oregon (11/7) and now stands at 102-58 (the third-highest win total in Pac-10 history) . . . USC's 10-1 start was its best since 1991 when it opened 14-1 . . . Juniors Jennifer Kessy and Jasmina Marinkovic became the eighth and ninth players, respectively, to surpass 1,000 kills at USC this year. Kessy, an outside hitter, was the first, getting 22 kills against Pepperdine (10/15). She now has 1,145. Marinkovic did it against UCLA (10/17) with 31 kills and now has 1,122. Kessy is seventh on USC's career attacks list with 2,892 and is seventh in digs with 80. On the career lists, Marinkovic (2,311 career attacks) is fourth in solo blocks (106) and total blocking (406) and sixth in block assists (300) . . . Junior setter Janice Mounts became only the fifth Trojan ever to reach 2,000 career assists this year and she now has 2,507 . . . USC allowed only a combined 19 points in its sweeps of Arizona State (15-4, 15-3, 15-4) and Arizona (15-1, 15-4, 15-3) on Sept. 19-20, its lowest point total allowed in back-to-back 3-game matches since 1977. The 1977 USC team, which went 38-0 and won the AIAW national championship, gave up a combined 14 points in back-to-back matches . . . USC freshman outside hitter Janae Henry made her network television debut recently in a dubious manner. Playing at San Diego State in the final game of a sweep on Sept. 11, Henry ripped a ball that looked like a sure kill. Aztec junior outside hitter Michaela Paz had other ideas, however. Covering the deep right court, Paz stabbed at the ball with her foot (a legal play) and sent the ball into USC's backcourt where it landed safely for a kill. The play made numerous highlight reels, including CNN's, where it was Play of the Day. USC had the last laugh, though, beating the Aztecs in 3 games.

    NCAA TOURNAMENT -- The bracket for the 1997 NCAA Volleyball Championships will be announced live on Nov. 30 at 3:30 p.m. PST. The show will air on selected FOX Sports Net affiliates. USC, winner of 3 AIAW Championships and 1 NCAA Championship, is expected to make its seventh consecutive NCAA appearance this year and 20th postseason appearance overall (15 NCAA, 5 AIAW).

    COACH LISA LOVE -- One of the nation's most successful collegiate coaches and a program builder everywhere she has been, Lisa Love has added another title. She has been USC's women's volleyball head coach since 1989 and was named associate athletic director in June of 1991. But leave room on the resume for this: President of the American Volleyball Coaches Association. Her term runs through 1998. Meanwhile, Love, 40, continues her duties as one of the nation's top volleyball coaches as she begins her ninth year as head coach at USC. Love has posted an outstanding 178-85 (.677) record with the Women of Troy and an impressive 377-163 (.698) mark in 14-plus seasons as a collegiate head coach. Love's teams have been nationally ranked in the final Top 20 in 10 of those years and have made 8 NCAA regional appearances and 11 overall NCAA trips. In 1996, Love led USC to a 21-9 record (12-6 in the Pac-10, tied for third) and to the NCAA Regionals for the third consecutive year. USC got to the NCAA Pacific Regional Semifinals, where it fell to eventual NCAA champion Stanford.

    JASMINA MARINKOVIC -- One of the nation's top blockers and most exciting players, junior middle blocker and All-American candidate Jasmina Marinkovic is a major force for USC. The 1996 KAEPA/AVCA All-District 8 and All-Pac-10 first teamer has been on fire all season, hitting a team-high .415 (359-71-694). She led the nation in overall hitting percentage for 6 consecutive weeks (through Oct. 19). She is a 3-time Pac-10 Player of the week honoree (Sept. 22, Oct. 20 and Nov. 10) and was named AVCA National Player of the Week on Sept. 22 (her first such honors of her career). She was honored in September for her flawless performance in USC's sweeps against Arizona State and Arizona (9/19-20). In the 2 matches, she had 23 kills in 30 attempts without an error, good for a hitting percentage of .767. She also had 9 blocks. For the second award, Marinkovic had a combined 45 kills and 6 errors in 88 swings, hitting .443 against No. 14 Pepperdine (Oct. 15) and No. 22 UCLA. (Oct. 17).

    For her third honor, in which she was a co-Player of the Week with UCLA's Kara Milling, Marinkovic hit .563 (30-3-48) against Oregon and Oregon State (11/8-9). Against the Sun Devils (9/19), Marinkovic went 13-0-17 for a percentage of .765, the second-highest match hitting percentage in school history (min. 15 attempts). She took the third spot on the same list against Oregon State (11/8), hitting .737 (14-0-19). Against Washington State (10/23), Marinkovic posted her first career triple-double with 21 kills, 12 digs and 10 blocks. She had a career-high 31 kills (tied for the seventh-best match effort ever at USC) and hit .500 (31-3-56) at UCLA (10/17). On the year for USC, Marinkovic is second in kills per game (4.33) and blocks per game (1.54). In the loss to Washington State (9/26), Marinkovic had 26 kills and she followed it up with 17 kills and 11 blocks at Washington (9/27). She had 14 kills and tied a season high with 11 blocks vs. Pepperdine (10/15).

    In USC's 3 wins at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30) at Michigan State, Marinkovic had 41 kills in 77 attacks with only 4 errors, good for a hitting percentage of .481, earning All-Tournament honors. In USC's road sweep of the Oregon schools (10/9-10), she hit .480 (27-3-50). Marinkovic has posted errorless hitting performances 4 times this season and has hit at least .500 11 times this year.

    JENNIFER KESSY -- Another standout junior, All-American candidate Jennifer Kessy began her third season as a starting outside hitter with a bang, earning the Pac-10's first Player of the Week honor in 1997. It was the third of her career and is among 19 that USC has won. Her 22 kills against Pepperdine (10/15) made her the eighth player ever at USC to reach 1,000 kills. This season, she leads USC in kills (377), kills per game (4.44), digs (260) and aces (20). Against Washington (10/24), Kessy had career highs with 27 kills and 28 digs. Overall, she has 12 double-doubles on the season and 33 for her career. Against Washington State (10/23), she had 25 kills, adding 13 digs.

    Kessy had back-to-back double-doubles at Washington State (9/26) and at Washington (9/27) with 22 kills and 17 digs and 21 kills and 14 digs, respectively. She posted 18 kills and 14 digs in the win over Colorado (9/7) and had a match-high 16 kills against Arizona State (9/19), hitting a career-high .591 in the match. She had 19 kills and 16 digs at UCLA (10/17). She had 18 kills and 15 digs at Oregon State (10/10) and had 16 kills and 11 digs against California (10/4). She hit .471 (10-2-17) against Oregon State (11/8). The 1996 All-Pac-10 honorable mention pick earned MVP honors at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30) with 54 kills in USC's 3 wins. Kessy had 12, 17 and 25 kills, respectively, at the tournament, saving the best for last against then-No. 6 Michigan State. She hit .361 on the weekend with 32 digs and 10 blocks.

    JANICE MOUNTS -- A rising star in the Pac-10, junior All-American candidate Janice Mounts is USC's starting setter for the second consecutive season. She leads USC with 1,066 assists and an average of 13.16 per game. She has also proved effective defensively and is second on the team in digs (194) and third in blocks (83). Mounts, who earlier this year became only the fifth player in USC history to surpass 2,000 assists, had a career-high 79 vs. Washington (10/24). It was the fourth-highest assist total in USC history. Mounts put together a huge weekend at Washington State (9/26) and at Washington (9/27) with 74 and 71 assists, respectively. She had 63 assists in the rematch vs. Washington State (10/23) to go along with 16 digs. She had 59 assists and 12 digs at UCLA (10/17) and had 55 assists against Oregon State (10/10). Mounts had 53 assists and a career-high 12 blocks against Pepperdine (10/15). She hit .545 (7-1-11) and had 12 digs against Oregon State (11/8).

    In her first weekend of action this season, she garnered All-Tournament honors at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30) with 121 assists while helping lead USC to the tournament title. She had 52 assists against Michigan State (8/30) and also had 21 digs and 8 blocks overall for the tournament. She has 8 double-doubles on the year. An All-Pac-10 honorable mention selection as a 1996 sophomore, Mounts led the Women of Troy with 1,318 assists and a 13.31 assist average last year, both good for third all-time on USC's season record lists.

    ALAINA KIPPS -- After growing as a reserve her freshman and sophomore years, middle blocker Alaina Kipps has blossomed as a 1997 junior. She leads USC with 141 blocks, averaging 1.64 per game, including 7 matches with at least 8 blocks. Her 123 block assists are already good enough for fourth place on USC's season record list and her current average would place her second all time. One of USC's steadiest players, Kipps is the only member of the team who has appeared in all 86 games. She posted a career-high 14 blocks at UCLA (10/17), joining a tie for the sixth-best single-match blocking performance in school history. She hit a career-high .667 (10-0-15) at Oregon State (10/10) and also added 7 blocks. She had a career-high 12 kills and 6 blocks at Washington (9/27) and tied the mark in the rematch vs. the Huskies (10/24).

    Kipps had 11 blocks, including a career-high 4 solo, in the second match vs. UCLA (11/14). She had 11 kills and 9 blocks against Colorado (9/7) in the 5-game win, had 8 blocks vs. Stanford (10/3) and had 9 kills and 6 blocks at San Diego State (9/11). Kipps was a standout in USC's season-opening weekend with 20 blocks and 21 kills at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30). She posted 11 blocks in USC's upset win over Michigan State (8/30) and she posted her first double-figure kill showing with 10 against Duke in a morning match before facing the Spartans. Kipps, who carries a 4.0 GPA, was honored during the Academic Salute at the USC-Washington State football game at the Coliseum (9/13).

    ANTOINETTE POLK -- Starting as a redshirt freshman, outside hitter Antoinette Polk is turning heads despite her inexperience. Possibly the most athletic player and best leaper on the team (at 5-10, she can dunk on a regulation basketball hoop), Polk posted her first double-double in only her third career match. She had 11 kills and 14 digs against Michigan State in the finale of the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/30). She had her second double-double at Washington State (9/26) with 13 kills and a career-high 18 digs. She had her third against Pepperdine (10/15) with 12 kills and 12 digs. Polk is third on the team in digs (185) and kills (196). She hit a career-high .429 with 8 kills against Arizona (9/20) and had a career-high 15 kills at Stanford (11/2). She has caught fire of late, hitting .318 in her last 5 matches, averaging 2.88 kills and 2.18 digs per game. She had 14 kills vs. Washington State (10/23). Polk had 12 kills and hit .321 against Colorado (9/7), had 10 kills and 8 digs against Cal State Northridge (9/9), 10 kills and 9 digs vs. UCLA (11/14) and had 9 kills and 10 digs at Oregon (10/9). Polk played basketball last year, seeing time in 9 games and averaging 2.1 points as a guard. She has since decided to concentrate on volleyball.

    JEANNE VETTER -- The only senior on the team, Jeanne Vetter has started 11 matches. She missed some action in October because of a knee injury but has resumed playing. Against Washington (10/24), she tied a career-high with 18 kills and added 23 digs, nursing a sore knee the entire match. She had 14 kills and 20 digs at Washington (9/27) for her first double-double of the season. She also had 10 digs at Washington State (9/26). On the Bay Area trip, Vetter had 17 kills and hit .353. Vetter started her first match of the year against Arizona State (9/19) and had 6 kills in 7 attempts without an error. She also had 3 aces and 4 assists. Hampered by a nagging shoulder injury, Vetter saw action in only 1 match in USC's opening weekend at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30), but she made it count. Getting in as a reserve against the Spartans in the title game, Vetter had 8 big digs in the upset win. Against Colorado (9/7), she provided a spark off the bench with 3 kills and 6 digs, jump starting the Women of Troy like she has so often in her career. She had 7 kills in 8 attempts against Cal State Northridge (9/9), hitting .750.

    SARA STEPHEN -- USC's shortest outside hitter at 5-8, junior Sara Stephen is one of the Women of Troy's hardest hitters. As a reserve, Stephen saw time in all 3 of USC's matches at the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30), mainly as a defensive specialist. She had 25 digs in 3 matches (2.5 per game), including 13 vs. Duke and 10 against Michigan State. Stephen had 12 digs at Oregon (10/9) and 11 digs vs. Washington (10/24). She is tied for third in service aces with 16, including 4 against Villanova (9/5). She is fourth on the team in digs with 117.

    KASHI CORMIER -- True freshman Kashi Cormier, a 2-time USA Youth National team member (1996-97), has seen the most action thus far of any of USC's 7 newcomers, playing in 67 games at opposite hitter. She had 13 and 11 kills, respectively, at Washington State (9/26) and Washington (9/27), hitting .407 against the Cougars. She had 10 kills vs. both the Cougars and Ducks at home and had 9 kills and hit .333 at Oregon (10/9). She has 9 aces, 104 kills, 98 digs and 42 blocks. At the GOFF/MSU Classic (8/29-30), she came up with 25 digs, including 11 in USC's upset of then-No. 6 Michigan State.

    AMBER OLIVER -- Sophomore Amber Oliver, expected to be a major contributor at middle blocker in 1997, will miss the season because of a shoulder injury suffered this spring.

    FRESHMEN -- Including Cormier, Coach Lisa Love welcomed 7 freshmen to this year's squad. Outside hitters Janae Henry, the 1996 Volleyball Magazine Player of the Year, and Cormier have competed for time throughout the season. Setter Heidi Munneke, a 2-time All-CIF Southern Section Division IV first team selection in 1995-96, is Mounts' back-up. The other 4 freshmen, all walk-ons, are defensive specialist Cynthia Corpuz, outside hitters Christine Bohle and Shannon Redfern and middle blocker Sara Peterson. Redfern started her first match of her career against Villanova (9/5), filling in at middle blocker for Jasmina Marinkovic. She came through with 6 kills in 13 attempts and often works her way into Coach Love's rotation. She also started at UCLA (10/17) and played a solid match.

    Against Arizona, Redfern had a USC season-high 7 aces, 1 short of tying USC's 3-game match record. She had 10 digs vs. Pepperdine (10/15). Henry saw her most significant action of the year vs. Washington (10/24), getting 7 kills in 32 attacks to go along with 12 digs, all career highs. On the year, she has 23 kills and 46 digs in 27 games as a reserve and Munneke has 78 assists in 14 games. Bohle has seen action in 12 games as a back-row specialist. Corpuz has played in 6 games (she has 4 digs), Peterson in 1.

    TOUGH SCHEDULE -- As usual, USC faces one of the toughest schedules in the nation, featuring 8 schools that have been ranked in the USA Today/AVCA Top 25: Stanford, Michigan State, Washington State, Washington, Arizona, UCLA, Pepperdine and Colorado. USC also faces 4 teams that received votes in the preseason poll: Duke, San Diego State, Oregon State and Arizona State. USC is 7-4 against ranked teams so far with wins over No. 6 Michigan State, No. 22 Colorado, No. 15 Arizona, No. 14 Pepperdine, No. 22/24 UCLA (twice) and No. 10 Washington State (second meeting). Losses are to No. 6 Washington State (first meeting), No. 4 Stanford (twice) and No. 21 Washington (second meeting). Rankings are at the time of the match.

    IN THE PAC-10 -- Jasmina Marinkovic leads the Pac-10 in hitting percentage (.415) and is fifth in block average (1.54) and kill average (4.33). Janice Mounts is third in assist average (13.16) and Alaina Kipps is second in block average (1.64). Jennifer Kessy is fourth in kill average (4.44) and digs (3.06). As a team, USC is second in service aces (1.52) and hitting percentage (.266) and third in blocks (3.40). Redfern's 7 aces are a high for the Pac-10, as are Kipps' 14 total blocks and 12 block assists (tied). USC's 269 attacks vs. Washington (10/24) are also a Pac-10 high.

    PRESEASON POLLS -- USC was ranked No. 15 in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Poll and No. 14 in Volleyball Magazine.
