The fifth-seeded Ducks (28-4) set a school record for wins in a season and reached a regional final for the first time in 10 tournament appearances. They won 25-23, 25-21, 22-25, 25-12.

Pac 12 player of the year Alaina Bergsma had 17 kills, Ariana Williams 13 and Katherine Fischer 12 for the Ducks, who were playing BYU for the first time since 1988. Lauren Plum had 68 set assists.

Jennifer Hamson, the West Coast Conference player of the year, led the 12th-seeded Cougars (28-4) with 18 kills. BYU, which came into the match second nationally in hitting (.313), hit just .259.

Oregon plays either fourth-seeded Nebraska or 13th-seeded Washington in the regional final Saturday.
