UH volleyball team departs for must-win trip

    Hawaii's Brook Sedore watches his ball go between UC Irvine's Kyle Russell and Jason Agopian in the first set of the UC Irvine vs. Hawaii volleyball match at Stan Sheriff Center.

The top-ranked University of Hawaii men’s volleyball team departed Wednesday morning for a must-win road trip against Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

The Warriors are 18-2 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, a half-match ahead of second-place UC Irvine (18-3).

With UCI heavily favored to win its regular-season finale against winless UC San Diego, the Warriors would need to win both matches against BYU on Friday and Saturday to win the MPSF title and earn the No. 1 seed throughout the league’s playoffs. UCI holds the tie-breaker advantage over the Warriors.

UH already has sold most of the tickets in the Stan Sheriff Center’s lower bowl for the April 25 MPSF quarterfinals. Donna Kanetake, whose son is UH’s starting libero, bought 84 tickets at $16 apiece.
