The University of Hawai'i men's volleyball team snapped its 15-match losing streak at Brigham Young's Smith Fieldhouse with a three-set win against the Cougars on Saturday night. It was UH's first win at Provo, Utah since 2003.
The Rainbow Warriors (20-0, 4-0 Big West Conference) extended their NCAA-record straight set win streak to 60 with a 25-20, 25-17, 25-14 sweep of BYU (12-8). The 'Bows also broke the Hawai'i program record for consecutive matches won; the 2006 team won 19 matches in a row.
BYU stayed close throughout the match as the 'Bows made 14 service errors. UH balanced that out with 10 service aces, including a match-ending one by senior setter Joe Worsley.
Senior outside hitter Stijn van Tilburg led the 'Bows with 13 kills, and junior middle blocker Patrick Gasman added 10 kills without an error. Sophomore libero Gage Worsley made 10 of Hawai'i's 28 digs.
Next up for the 'Bows is a non-conference match against Concordia-Irvine on March 26, before resuming conference play at UC San Diego on March 29 and 30.
