A loss by San Diego -- the only team to beat Hawaii this season -- helped the Rainbow Wahine move up a spot to No. 6 in the AVCA Coaches Division I Top 25 women's volleyball poll announced today.

Penn State (9-1) remained No. 1, receiving 53 of 60 first-place votes. USD (8-2), swept by unranked BYU in Provo, Utah, last weekend, dropped to No. 8.

The Toreros' fall led to the rest of the teams ranked Nos. 3-8 to all move up a place, beginning with Washington (8-0, 5 votes) to No. 2

Florida (11-1) was next at No. 3, followed by USC (10-1, 1 vote), Texas (6-2), Hawaii (11-1) and Stanford (7-2). Nos. 9-13 remained unchanged, starting with No. 9 Minnesota (12-1), followed by Michigan (10-1), UCLA (9-1), Nebraska (8-2) and Ohio State (12-0).

The Rainbow Wahine return to the Stan Sheriff Center Wednesday for an exhibition with Toyota Auto Body of Japan at 7 p.m. Hawaii opens defense of its Big West title Friday with Cal State Fullerton (7-6), also scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.

San Diego's fall was inevitable however let us hope that they keep their top 10 ranking because it would help The Wahine in their RPI, which of course is NOT the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, if u catch my drift. NCAA please use the AVCA poll for goodness sakes, as u got more important stuff to deal with.
