BYU beat NJIT in three sets Saturday night at the Fleisher Center behind Tim Dobbert’s team-high 12 kills.
“I’m happy with the team effort and focus we played with tonight,” BYU head coach Shawn Olmstead said. “It was nice to play different guys while still competing at a high level. The team had a great weekend.”
Dobbert also contributed nine blocks and seven digs to his 12 hills. Michael Hatch contributed nine blocks and five digs while Jake Langlois contributed 10 kills, five digs and five blocks. Price Jarman added seven kills behind a .700 hitting percentage.
The Cougars won all three sets with the closest score coming in the first set at 25-22. BYU held a 20-14 lead in the set before letting the Highlanders bring it to 22-20. The Cougars finished the set strong and continued that momentum through the next sets, winning them both 25-19.
This win wrapped up the Cougar’s east coast road trip at 2-0. BYU will travel to the other side of the country to face Cal Baptist in Riverside, California next Friday and Saturday.
