Gardner finished with a double-double when adding 10 digs and sophomore hitter McKenzie Willey had nine kills for the Sun Devils (2-0), who have all but clinched the title of the round-robin event. ASU plays Ohio (1-1) at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Hawaii (1-1) faces San Diego State (0-2) in the 5:30 p.m. finale. The Aztecs lost earlier Saturday to Ohio, 23-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-22.

The Wahine were led by junior hitter Tai Manu-Olevao's nine kills and 12 digs. Freshman hitter Kalei Greeley came off the bench in Set 2 to finish with six kills.

""We frittered away too many points," UH coach Dave Shoji said. "The important thing is to bounce back tomorrow."
