HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A career performance from junior Kupono Fey wasn't quite enough for the Rainbow Warriors on Tuesday, as the men's volleyball team lost to USC in five sets at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.
Fey, Hawaii's starting outside hitter, hammered home a career-high 23 kills (.341) in the match. Senior outside hitter Sinisa Zarcovic continued his double-digit kill streak, a mark which extends back through every match of this year's volleyball season.
After needing to fight from behind to snap a three-match losing streak on Monday night, the 'Bows found themselves with a 2-1 lead on Tuesday before allowing USC to tie things at 2 sets each.
Once in the fifth set, the Rainbow Warriors held match point with a 14-11 advantage before falling to the Trojans, 15-17.
