MOSCOW, Idaho - The Idaho volleyball team is set to wrap up the regular season when it takes on Hawai'i in Honolulu, Hawai'i on Thursday night.

The Vandals enter the match at 13-13 overall, and 8-7 in Western Athletic Conference play. The Rainbow Wahine are 26-1 on the season, and 15-0 in the WAC. Hawai'i has not lost a set in WAC play this season, and has a 40-match WAC winning streak heading into the contest. Hawai'i has won a school record 56 consecutive sets, breaking the previous school record of 54 set back in 2002.

Idaho will look to clinch the No. 3 seed in the WAC tournament against Hawai'i. With a win, the Vandals can do just that. If the Vandals lose, they can still clinch the No. 3 seed if Nevada (13-15, 7-8)  beats Louisiana Tech (12-20, 1-14) and New Mexico State (18-11, 12-3) beats Utah State (20-8, 8-7). That would result in a four-way tie for third place, with Idaho, Nevada, Boise State and Utah State all 8-8 in the WAC. Since the Vandals hold the best head-to-head record within those four teams, at 4-2, Idaho would earn the No. 3 seed.

The WAC tournament is Nov. 22-24 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The six-team field has been set, with Hawai'i and New Mexico State clinching the top two spots and a first-round bye, while Idaho, Nevada, Boise State and Utah State have also clinched berths.
