    Hawaii outside hitter Tai Manu-Olevao (10) tries to avoid the Northern Arizona block in the NCAA women's volleyball game between the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and the University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, HI.

Two wins last week helped push Hawaii back into the AVCA Coaches Top 25 on Monday.

The Rainbow Wahine (8-3) were at No. 25, the spot they held two weeks ago. Hawaii was just out of the Top 25 last week in 26th, the first time the team had been unranked since the last four weeks of the 1992 season.

The top three teams remained unchanged, led by Stanford (10-0) at No. 1 with 53 votes. Texas (8-0, 6 votes) was at No. 2 and Penn State (12-) at No. 3. Washington (11-0, 1 vote) and Wisconsin (9-1) traded spots at Nos. 4 and 5; the Huskies defeated the Badgers in 5 last week.

Rounding out the Top 10 are Florida State (11-0), Colorado State (12-1), Nebraska (6-3), USC (7-3) and Florida (6-3).

The three teams to have defeated Hawaii remain ranked: Oregon (9-0) at No. 13, Arizona State (10-2) at No. 19 and UCLA (9-2) at No. 20. 

The Rainbow Wahine open Big West play on the road at UC Davis on Friday and UC Riverside on Saturday.
