Riley Wagoner led the ‘Bows with a game-high 12 kills, while Tommi Stockham had nine kills and four digs to lead the Mustangs (14-15, 11-7 Big West Conference).
A conference title would also mean a 28th consecutive NCAA tournament for the ‘Bows in which the program was eligible. The NCAA held a women’s volleyball tournament in the spring, but the Big West did not hold a season.
The ‘Bows will now return home for a pair of home matches, starting with Cal State Northridge on Friday at SImpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
