INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - In an effort to promote and celebrate 25 years of NCAA Championship women's volleyball, the NCAA is reaching out to the fans to vote for the 25th Anniversary Team.

UCLA head coach Andy Banachowski, along with former Bruin All-Americans Liz Masakayan, Natalie Williams and Elaine Youngs are among the players and coaches on the ballot for the 25th Anniversary Team.

Masakayan played for the Bruins from 1982-85, earning All-NCAA Tournament honors in 1984 and '85 and All-America notice in those same two years. Following the 1984 season, the future U.S. Olympian earned the sport's Honda Award.

Williams was the MVP of both the 1990 and '91 NCAA Tournaemnts as the Bruins won back-to-back titles. Playing for Banachowski from 1989-92, Williams was a four-time All-American and two-time Honda Award winner for the women's volleyball and was named the Pac-10 Athlete of the Decade for 1986-96.
