The WSU women’s volleyball team travels to Oregon to compete against Oregon State University and the University of Oregon this weekend.

After a 3-1 victory at home against the University of Southern California, the Cougars (19-5, 8-4) travel to Corvallis, Oregon, to play the Beavers (9-14, 3-9) Thursday at Gill Coliseum. WSU will then travel to Eugene, Oregon, to play the Ducks (7-14, 3-9) Sunday at Matthew Knight Arena.

Head coach Jen Greeny described the thought process going into playing both Oregon-based teams.

“This [Pac-12] conference is crazy and when people from the outside look in and see records, they might think those teams aren’t good but that is definitely not the case,” Greeny said. “These are two really strong teams if they were in any other conference and would probably be at top spots.”

When WSU last played OSU on Oct. 13, the Cougars won the match 3-1 in Bohler Gym. The last time they took on the Ducks on Oct. 11, they also won the match 3-1.

Greeny spoke about how going against Oregon State and Oregon will be after previously playing both teams less than a month ago.

“Since we’ve played both teams, they’ve made some adjustments and they’re playing really well right now, especially Oregon given them switching to a six-two [Scheme Fit],” Greeny said. “That will be a tough matchup for us but we gotta get through Oregon State first.”

The match between WSU and OSU will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday followed by a 12 p.m. tip match Sunday between WSU and UO.
