No. 2 BYU defeated No. 7 Hawai’i in three sets behind 22 kills from sophomore Ben Patch Wednesday night.
“I was impressed with our team’s composure throughout the night,” said BYU head coach Shawn Olmstead. “I saw a lot of bright spots, but it’s always nice to win as a team.”
Patch led the Cougars in scoring behind a hitting percentage of .700 and also contributed three digs and three blocks. Jake Langlois contributed an additional 14 kills and Leo Durkin posted 44 assists on the night.
BYU has now won 33 straight sets. They are set to face Hawai’i again Friday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.
