Men’s Volleyball Lengthens Win Streak


The No. 4 BYU men’s volleyball team lengthened its win streak to six straight victories after the Cougars swept Hawaii on the Warriors’ home court this weekend.

Friday was a night for record setting, as senior middle blocker Futi Tavana and sophomore outside hitter Taylor Sander posted some impressive numbers.

Tavana set the BYU record for most blocks in a single match with 14. Sander set the record for most attempts in a match with a total of 58 on the night.

Four Cougars recorded double-digit kills as BYU defeated Hawaii in five sets (25-23, 25-23, 23-25, 36-34, 15-12).

Sander led all players with 23, followed by Tavana with 14, redshirt freshman outside hitter Josue Rivera with 13 and senior opposite hitter Robb Stowell with 10.

BYU also outblocked Hawaii 21.5 to 12.5.

The Cougars cruised to a much easier victory on Saturday night as they swept the Warriors in three straight sets (25-14, 29-27, 25-17).

Sander again led the Cougars with 18 kills and four service aces, while Tavana turned in seven blocks.

BYU will be on the road again on Friday and Saturday as they travel to Long Beach State.
