Long Beach State can claim the Big West Conference crown this week with a win on the road. The Beach (22-4, 12-0 Big West) can clinch at least a share with one more win in its next four matches and will clinch the outright title with two more wins. LBSU visits second-place UC Davis on Thursday and UC Riverside on Saturday, looking to stay undefeated in the Big West.
For the third time this season, Ashley Murray has been selected as the Big West's Freshman of the Week. All three honors have come in the last six weeks for the first-year middle blocker.
It was a weekend sweep at the Beach as the Long Beach State women's volleyball team quickly swept through UC Santa Barbara on Saturday. The Beach (22-4, 12-0 Big West) never trailed in a 25-19, 25-18, 25-17 sweep of the Gauchos (12-13, 7-7 Big West).
