      51 - Wyoming senior Jodi Purdy has 51 career double-doubles, second on the MW career double-doubles list. Purdy needs seven more double-doubles this season to pass BYU's Chelsea Goodman (57; 2004-07) for the MW record.

      17 - Fresno State junior Megan Callahan recorded a career-high 17 kills in the Bulldogs' 3-1 win over New Mexico on Sept. 27.

      11 - This season ties for the third-fastest in UNLV history to 11 wins, which has taken 16 total matches.
