HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

After trading blows in each of the first four sets of Saturday's volleyball rematch between Hawaii and UCLA, a player from Oahu was responsible for the final kill of an epic 5 set match at the Stan Sheriff Center.

It just wasn't one that played for the University of Hawaii.

Bruins freshman Micah Ma'a, a 2015 graduate of Punahou School and a three-time all-state volleyball player in Hawaii, had perhaps his best performance as a collegiate athlete on Saturday, hammering home a career-high 18 kills and assisting on 23 others.

A night after falling in four sets to the Rainbow Warriors, UCLA returned tough on the terraflex, especially on the defensive end. The Bruins' 19.5 blocks on the night were nearly 5 times as many as the Rainbow Warriors recorded.

Sinisa Zarcovic paced the 'Bows offensively on Saturday with 20 kills, despite hitting just .196 on the night.
