BYU volleyball stars Futi Tavana and Taylor Sander were named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America First Team, the AVCA announced Thursday morning. Tavana is a senior and Sander is a sophomore.
The Cougars play a MPSF semifinal match against Stanford on Thursday night at USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles. The match begins at 6 p.m. MDT and will be televised by BYUtv.
Sander did not play in Stanford's sweep of BYU in early February in Provo. The 6-foot-4 outside hitter is second nationally with a .400 attack percentage and 4.8 kills per set. He is an AVCA All-American for the second time.
