There is also a dance day celebration with performances from local studios. This is San Diego’s first-ever trip to Provo. BYU holds a 2-0 all-time mark against San Diego.

BYU continues to feature a balanced scoring attack with center Kristen Riley and guards Kim Parker and Lexi Eaton all averaging double figures. Riley is also the teams leading rebounder, while senior co-captain Haley Steed is the team’s assist and steals leader.
