With just four weeks remaining in the regular Pac-12 volleyball season, WASHINGTON holds on to a slim lead at the top and the title is still up for grabs ... Still undefeated at home, the Huskies have posted a nine-match winning streak, having only lost once this year ... Right on UW’s heels is USC, standing at 10-2 in Conference play. The Trojans swept the Bay Area schools last weekend in two toughly-fought matches to take the second-place spot from STANFORD, which is now only one game behind USC in third ... Rising up in the standings are CALIFORNIA and COLORADO, both tied for fourth. It’s the highest placing in Conference standings past the halfway point in the season for the Buffs since joining the Pac-12, and for the Golden Bears since finishing third in the Pac-12 in 2011 ... Four Pac-12 teams were ranked in the AVCA National Coaches Poll this week, as Washington, USC Stanford and California all kept their same spots as last week (No. 3, 4, 6 and 22, respectively). Four schools are also receiving votes ... Pac-12 Player of the Week honors for the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3 went to USC’s Samantha Bricio and Natalie Hagglund, who were tabbed Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively. Kyra Holt of WASHINGTON STATE took home Freshman Player of the Week accolades for the second time this season ... This upcoming week will be the first week since the start of Pac-12 play without a matchup between two top-25 teams, but that does not mean the competition will be any easier, as proven by the upset last week of ARIZONA STATE over then-No. 23 OREGON. Four matches last week went to five sets, further proving how tough the Pac-12 has grown over the course of the season ... The Pac-12 has at least one team and one individual in the top 25 nationally in every statistical category. A league team is in the top 10 in six categories, and a student-athlete from a Pac-12 school is in their respective top 10 in four categories.
