    Hawaii middle blocker Emily Maglio (19) puts down a kill past UCLA middle blocker Claire Felix (8) and outside hitter Haley Lawless (4) during the second set of the final game of the 2016 Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic between the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine and the UCLA Bruins on Saturday at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Saturday’s loss to UCLA did not hurt Hawaii in the national rankings.

In fact, both volleyball teams moved up a spot in today’s AVCA Coaches Top 25.

The Rainbow Wahine (3-3) were at No. 14 while the Bruins (6-0) were seventh.

The top four remained the same, led by unanimous No. 1 Nebraska. The Huskers (4-0) received all 64 first-place votes.

Wisconsin (5-0), which defeated Hawaii in the season opener, stayed at No. 2 followed by Texas (5-1) and Kansas. Minnesota traded place with Washington with the Gophers (3-1) at No. 5 and the Huskies (5-0) at No. 6.

Rounding out the Top 10 were Florida (4-1), Stanford (3-1) and BYU (6-0).

Hawaii conclude its preseason tournaments with the Outrigger Resorts Challenge. The Wahine play Utah Valley Thursday, Northern Illinois Friday and No. 6 Washington on Sunday.
