The fourth-ranked Seasiders (26-1) advance to play the winner of Friday's second semifinal between Sonoma State and host Cal State San Bernardino. Saturday's title match at The Den is scheduled for 5 p.m. Hawaii time.

Junior middle Erh Fang "Ariel" Hsu added nine kills and freshman hitter Noel Pauga added eight.

Set 1 was the tightest with the teams trading leads late. At 24-23 Pauga's kill won it for the Seasiders.

It was the 19th consecutive win for the Seasiders, who were outblocked by the Tritons (26-6). BYUH had 65 digs, with four players in double digits, led by junior setter Ying Chun "Michelle" Chen's 14.
