    Tonight in Provo, Utah, the Florida Gator volleyball team will square off against No. 4 seed BYU with a berth in the NCAA Elite Eight on the line.

    The fact that redshirt senior Allie Monserez and her younger sister, freshman Marlie Monserez, have another chance to play together makes it all the more special.

    “I think this past weekend, us playing so well really gave us confidence,” Allie said. “We went into the first and second round just trusting in our abilities, and our ability to play together really pushed us into this next week of practice. We have a huge match against BYU, and we’re just going to go for it in every aspect of the game.”
    Oldest sister Madison started things for the Monserez family, playing for the Gators from 2011-14.

    “I think we’ve definitely adopted the underdog mentality,” Marlie said. “We worked so hard in preseason and SEC season, and it’s all translated into postseason. We came into the first two rounds playing so confident and playing for the person next to us, and we want to make it special playing for our seniors. We want to make it as far as we can. If we’re playing our best volleyball, we can go in and have the outcome that we want.”
