    University of Hawaii setter Joe Worsley finessed the ball over the net against Stanford’s Leo Henken and Stephen Moye.

Junior hitter Rado Parapunov put down 17 kills and senior hitter Stijn van Tilburg added 11 as No. 2 Hawaii remained unbeaten with a 25-15, 27-25, 25-22 sweep of No. 8 Stanford in a men’s nonconference volleyball match tonight at the Stan Sheriff Center.

A season-high crowd of 3,945 saw the Rainbow Warriors (4-0) defeat the Cardinal (7-2) for the sixth consecutive time in Honolulu dating back to 2013. Sophomore libero Gage Worsley had a match-high 11 digs for Hawaii, which has not dropped a set this season.

Senior hitter Jordan Ewert had 14 kills for Stanford in its first road trip of the year.

The teams meet again at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Van Tilburg moved into 13th place on the UH list, passing Brook Sedore (1,096). He has 1,105.
