Warriors outlast UCLA

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (HawaiiNewsNow) – For the second time in three matches this season, the University of Hawai'i men's volleyball team outlasted UCLA in five sets (23-25, 25-18, 19-25, 25-23, 15-12).

With the win, the Warriors (5-8, 4-6 MPSF) snapped a nine-match road losing streak dating back to last season. The match was also UH's eighth five-set match through 13 matches, one shy of the school record for five set matches in a rally-scoring season.
 
Hawai'i was led by its big three pin hitters – JP Marks (18), Brook Sedore (17), and Sinisa Zarkovic (15) – who combined for 40 kills, six aces, and 10 blocks. Both Marks and Zarkovic hit over .400 for the match. In the three sets that the Warriors won, UH hit a staggering .600 with 40 kills and just four errors in 60 attempts.
 
UH will continue its four-match road trip with a pair of MPSF contests at top-ranked UC Irvine, Monday and Tuesday.
