    THIS WEEK -- The USC women's volleyball team (21-5) will make its seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and its 15th overall when it faces Morgan State in a first-round match on Friday (Dec. 5) at the Lyon Center. USC will also serve as host institution for both first and second-round matches on Friday and Saturday (Dec. 5-6) in a sub-regional of the Pacific Region. Kansas State (20-12) and San Diego (25-3) will square off first at 5 p.m. on Friday and will be followed by USC and Morgan State (25-9), which will start 45 minutes after the end of the first match. The winners of each match will meet on Saturday at 7 p.m. All matches will be at the Lyon Center on USC's campus.

    RANKINGS -- USC is No. 7 in the latest USA Today/AVCA Coaches Top 25 Poll. San Diego is No. 23. Kansas State and Morgan State are not ranked.

    USC TOURNAMENT NOTES -- USC is 67-20 in the postseason since its first such appearance in 1976. The Women of Troy have made 20 postseason appearances overall, 5 AIAW and 15 NCAA. USC has won 3 AIAW national championships (1976, 1977, 1980) and 1 NCAA national championship (1981). The Women of Troy also were runners-up in 1982, made the Final Four in 1985 and reached the West Regional Final in 1994. USC is making its seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and eighth overall in USC Coach Lisa Love's 9 seasons at USC. The Women of Troy are 9-7 under Love in the NCAA Tournament, but 9-1 in matches against teams other than Pac-10 rival Stanford. In fact, the Women of Troy have 8 sweeps in 10 matches against non-Cardinal opponents. For USC and Stanford to meet in the postseason this year, both teams would have to reach the Final Four . . . Kansas State Coach Jim McLaughlin is a former USC men's volleyball coach who guided the Trojans from 1990 to 1996, winning an NCAA championship in 1990. He was 175-42 in his career at USC . . . USC junior setter Janice Mounts' older sister, LaManda, is a senior outside hitter for San Diego and leads the Toreros in kills . . . USC has a 1-0 record against both Kansas State and San Diego, but has never faced Morgan State. USC has faced 9 teams in this year's NCAA Tournament: Villanova, Michigan State, Colorado, Pepperdine, Stanford, UCLA, Arizona, Washington and Washington State. USC is 9-5 against those opponents.

    LAST YEAR AT THE NCAA TOURNAMENT -- USC defeated Southeast Missouri State, 3-0, in the first round in Los Angeles and then beat host South Florida, 3-0, in the second round in Tampa, Fla. The Women of Troy's season ended in Palo Alto, Calif., where USC was swept by Stanford in the Pacific Regional semifinals.

    MORGAN STATE -- The Lady Bears finished 25-9, earning the school's first-ever NCAA Division I Championship berth in any sport. They did so by winning the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament as well as a play-in match against Grambling State. Morgan State, located in Baltimore, Md., is coached by Ramona Riley Bozier, who is in her 10th year as head coach. She was named the MEAC Coach of the Year in 1997. Three Morgan State players earned All-Conference honors: senior outside hitter Jakaria Stewart, junior setter Monica Scott and junior middle blocker/outside hitter Tiffany Pickens. Stewart leads the Lady Bears with 316 kills and 314 digs.

    SAN DIEGO -- The Toreros, under Coach Sue Snyder, completed their best regular season ever, going 25-3 overall and 13-1 in the West Coast Conference, good for the conference title and an NCAA automatic berth. San Diego is making its third NCAA Tournament appearance and its second in a row. Last year at the NCAAs, San Diego fell to Arizona in a first-round match. San Diego's only 3 losses in 1997 came to Colorado State, Arizona and Loyola Marymount, all NCAA Tournament teams. The Toreros are led by senior outside hitter LaManda Mounts, older sister of USC junior setter Janice Mounts. LaManda Mounts leads San Diego with 391 kills in 996 attempts, averaging 4.3 kills per game. She also has a team-high 300 digs. Senior middle blocker Sara Gunsaulas and sophomore outside hitter Petia Yanchulova have 353 and 344 kills, respectively, and junior middle blocker Lisa Ravensberg is averaging a team-high 1.2 blocks per game. In the schools' only meeting, USC defeated San Diego, 15-2, 15-2, 15-6, on Sept. 18, 1991.

    KANSAS STATE -- The Wildcats and Coach Jim McLaughlin, a former USC men's volleyball coach (1990-96), are making their second appearance in the NCAA Tournament. They finished 20-12 overall, 11-9 in the Big 12, good for fifth place and an at-large berth. Junior swing hitter Kim Zschau and sophomore outside hitter/middle blocker Dawn Cady have 456 and 446 kills, respectively. Junior middle blocker Val Wieck leads Kansas State with 136 blocks, averaging 1.48 per game, and senior setter Devon Ryning has 1,418 assists, averaging 13.38 per game. In the schools' only meeting, USC defeated Kansas State, 15-1, 15-1, in December of 1977 at the AIAW Championships in Provo, Utah.

    1997 PAC-10 HONORS -- USC enjoyed a bumper crop of Pac-10 honors in 1997 as Women of Troy Coach Lisa Love was named Co-Pac-10 Coach of the Year (with Stanford's Don Shaw), outside hitter Antoinette Polk was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and junior middle blocker Jasmina Marinkovic and junior outside hitter Jennifer Kessy were named to the All-Pac-10 first team. Receiving nods as All-Pac-10 honorable mention picks were senior outside hitter Jeanne Vetter and junior setter Janice Mounts. Outside hitter Kashi Cormier was named a Pac-10 All-Freshman honorable mention selection.

    USC NOTES, MILESTONES, ETC. -- USC's second-place tie (with Washington) in the final Pac-10 standings is its highest Pac-10 finish ever. Its previous high was third place (5 times) . . . USC Coach Lisa Love notched her 100th career Pac-10 win recently against Oregon (11/7) and now stands at 103-59 (the third-highest win total in Pac-10 history) . . . USC's 21-5 (.808) regular-season finish is its best mark in Love's 9 seasons at USC and the best regular-season finish for the Women of Troy since going 28-6 in 1984. 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 1,176. Marinkovic did it against UCLA (10/17) with 31 kills and now has 1,161. Kessy is seventh on USC's career attacks list with 2,967 and is sixth in digs with 924. On the career lists, Marinkovic is tied for third in solo blocks (108), fourth in total blocking (416), fifth in block assists (308) and ninth in career attacks (2,395). Junior setter Janice Mounts became only the fifth Trojan ever to reach 2,000 career assists this year and she now has 2,603 . . . 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 this year 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.

    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 179-86 (.675) record with the Women of Troy and an impressive 378-164 (.697) 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. An All-Pac-10 first team selection for the second year in a row, Marinkovic has been on fire all season, hitting a team-high .406 (398-82-778). 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 (the first such honor 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 (4.37) and blocks per game (1.52). 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). On the Arizona trip (11/21-22), she had a combined 39 kills. 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 12 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. She recently finished the regular season with another bang, being selected to the 1997 All-Pac-10 first team. It was her first such honor to go with her 3 career Player of the Week honors. 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 (408), kills per game (4.39), digs (304) and aces (22). Against Washington (10/24), Kessy had career highs with 27 kills and 28 digs. Overall, she has 14 double-doubles on the season and 35 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. At Arizona (11/21), she had a career high 31 digs and 20 kills. 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. A 1997 All-Pac-10 honorable mention selection (her second in a row), she leads USC with 1,162 assists and an average of 13.06 per game. She has also proved effective defensively and is second on the team in digs (220) and third in blocks (88). 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 60 assists and 15 digs at Arizona (11/21), 59 assists and 12 digs at UCLA (10/17) and 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 10 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. Kipps, who leads USC with 153 blocks, has been named to the GTE/CoSIDA District VIII All-Academic and Pac-10 All-Academic first teams. She is averaging 1.63 blocks per game, and has had 8 matches with at least 8 blocks. Her 135 block assists are already good enough for second 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 94 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 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 has turned heads all season 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 was named 1997 Pac-10 Freshman of Year (USC's second such honor. The first was Jasmina Marinkovic in 1995). She is third on the team in kills (211) and digs (206). She 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. 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 13 matches at opposite hitter and was named a 1997 All-Pac-10 honorable mention selection. She is tied for fifth on the team with 107 kills and her 133 digs are also fifth on the team. 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. She missed 4 matches in October because of a knee injury but is back at full strength.

    SARA STEPHEN -- USC's shortest outside hitter at 5-8, junior Sara Stephen is one of the Women of Troy's hardest hitters. She is tied for second on the team in service aces with 17, including 4 against Villanova (9/5). She is fourth on the team in digs with 140. 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). In USC's last weekend of action at the Arizona schools (11/21-22), she had a combined 23 digs.

    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 71 games as a part-time starter at opposite hitter. For her efforts, she was named a 1997 Pac-10 All-Freshman honorable mention selection. On the year, she has 104 kills, 98 digs and 43 blocks. 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). 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.

    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 47 digs in 31 games as a reserve and Munneke has 78 assists in 19 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.

    AMBER OLIVER -- Sophomore Amber Oliver, expected to be a major contributor at middle blocker in 1997, has been out the entire season because of a shoulder injury suffered this spring. She was a 1996 Pac-10 All-Freshman honorable mention selection last year.

    TOUGH SCHEDULE -- As usual, USC has faced 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 has faced 4 teams that received votes in the preseason poll: Duke, San Diego State, Oregon State and Arizona State. USC is 7-5 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), No. 21 Washington (second meeting) and No. 9 Arizona (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 (1.52) and kill average (4.37). Janice Mounts is third in assist average (13.06) and Alaina Kipps is second in block average (1.63). Jennifer Kessy is second in dig average (3.27) and fourth in kill average (4.39). As a team, USC is second in service aces (1.52) and hitting percentage (.261) and third in blocks (3.36). 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.

    LOVE NOTES -- "The NCAA Tournament is the focal point of our season every year. What is particularly exciting this year is that we are only of only 2 Pac-10 teams in our bracket (Washington is the other). That gives us the opportunity to prepare fresh against teams from around the country that will give us a national perspective, which I find to be very exciting. In the past, we have basically played a Pac-10 bracket in the Pacific Region. This year, it still appears to be a very strong region, but now it feels like a new start."
