Senior All-American hitter Emily Hartong put down a match-high 14 kills and freshman Nikki Taylor added 10 kills in playing two sets as No. 11 Hawaii swept UTEP 25-20, 25-15, 25-10 Saturday in the Chevron Rainbow Wahine Invitational volleyball tournament at the Stan Sheriff Center. 

Hawaii coach Dave Shoji, two victories away from becoming the all-time winningest coach in the sport, used all 16 of his roster players in the 82-minute romp. Shoji can tie retired UCLA coach Andy Banachowski for the record of 1,106 with a win in Sunday's 5 p.m. tournament finale over San Diego (1-1, 1-1).

Senior libero Ali Long had 15 digs for the Wahine (2-0, 2-0 CRWI). Taylor had no hitting errors in 13 attempts.

The Miners (0-3, 0-3) got nine kills from Talia Jones.

In a match played earlier today, No. 1 Texas avoided being upset for the second straight day when rallying past San Diego, 19-25, 25-18, 21-25, 30-28, 15-10. The Longhorns (2-1, 2-1) got 12 kills from each Khat Bell and Bailey Webster against the Toreros.

Texas also swept UTEP in a morning match, 25-13, 25-19, 25-21.
