Hawaii upsets Stanford in men's volleyball

The Punahou Carnival had nothing on the atmosphere at the Stan Sheriff Center tonight. Both No. 3 Stanford and unranked Hawaii went on plenty of wild rides, taking the crowd with them, for a second straight Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball match.

When this particular Tilt-A-Whirl stopped after 2 hours and 55 minutes, the Warriors and Cardinal had played a second straight five-setter and Hawaii its sixth five-set match in seven home matches. 

And for just the third time, the Warriors prevailed. 

Sophomore hitter Brook Sedore had 17 kills, including the match-ender, and freshman hitter Siki Zarkovic added 11 kills and was in on six blocks as Hawaii rallied past Stanford 20-25, 25-23, 21-25, 27-25, 15-11.

The Warriors (4-7, 3-5) finished with nine aces, three by sophomore hitter JP Marks.

Junior hitter Steven Irvin led Stanford (7-3, 4-3 MPSF) for the second match, finishing with 22 kills and 12 digs, while junior hitter Brian Cook — the nephew of Nebraska women's coach John — added 16 kills.

It was the third consecutive year that the two teams split the two-match series.

The Warriors have the week off before traveling to No. 5 UCLA (8-5, 4-3) for matches Feb. 15 and 16.
