Cal women's volleyball faces perhaps their stiffest test after gritting it out against Minnesota, not just because of the team they're playing, but the fact that this game will be pretty much a road contest. They're playing Washington in Seattle in their home arena, and the Husky crowd showed up in big numbers for their upset of Nebraska yesterday. Can Cal get it done?

Here's some more courtesy of CalBears.com. GO BEARS!

The Huskies (23-8) have won five of their last six matches heading into the regional championship; all 3-0 sweeps. Washington hosted No. 23-ranked Michigan in the first round before it took out 15th-seeded Hawaii in a stunning upset to advance to the regional semifinal. All-region senior opposite hitter Kindra Carlson had 27 kills while hitting .377 in the two matches and senior outside Becky Perry contributed 22 kills. Freshman libero Jenna Orlandini averaged 5.67 digs per set and the Huskies put up 14 blocks to hold their opponents to a .153 attack rate. Senior setter Jenna Hagglund averages 11.75 assists per set this season (second in the Pac-10). The Bears swept the season series against Washington for the first time since 2003 and have won in each of their last three visits to Seattle. The Huskies hold a 29-26 edge in the all-time series, but Cal currently owns a three-match streak overall.
