MANOA (KHNL) - The University of Hawaii Men's Volleyball Team dropped a 4-set match to defending NCAA Champions, Penn State on the final day of the Outrigger Hotels Invitational at the Stan Sheriff Center on Saturday.

Josh Walker led UH with 18 kills and 4 blocks, but it wasn't enough as the Nittany Lions repeat as tournament champions for the second straight year, as they improve to 3-and-0 on the young 2009 season.

The Warriors drop to 1-and-2 on the season, after beating 10th ranked, Ohio State in their season opener. UH will host Pepperdine on January 15 and 16 to open the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation season at the Stan Sheriff Center.
