HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The stage is set — The University of Hawaii men’s volleyball team will now face BYU in the 2021 National Championship on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.

Fresh off of the heels of a dominant three-set sweep of UC Santa Barbara in the first match of Thursday’s semifinals, the Cougars of Brigham Young took a 3-1 set victory over Lewis in the night cap of the semis.

The ‘Bows enter Championship Saturday at 16-1 while the Cougs’ come in at 20-3, however BYU will be the first non-Big West opponent UH will face this season.
