    Hawaii’s Guilherme Voss hits against Missouri S&T’s Tyler Johnwick on Thursday.

Spyros Chakas had six kills in seven attempts in the first set and the No. 3 Hawaii men’s volleyball team went deep into the bench in a 25-14, 25-18, 25-17 sweep of Missouri S&T tonight.

Chaz Galloway had a team-high nine kills and freshman Tread Rosenthal, who served the first eight Hawaii points of the match, had 24 assists, three aces and two digs in two sets.

A SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center crowd of 3,903 saw Hawaii use 13 different players to finish the month of February winning 18 of 19 sets played. The Rainbow Warriors (12-1) have won 11 in a row.

Chakas, who didn’t play in Hawaii’s last three matches against unranked opponents, got in a quick night of work to raise his hitting percentage to .438 for the season, ranking second in NCAA Division I.
