March 15, 2007

The fifth-ranked UCLA men's volleyball team meets No. 15 Ball Sate on Fri., Mar. 16 to complete a two-match, non-conference series at Pauley Pavilion. The match begins at 7 p.m.

Darren Preston will call the action on www.uclabruins.com.

The Bruins (13-9) and Cardinals (10-8) met on Wednesday night with UCLA winning 3-0. Seniors Steve Klosterman and Paul George combined for 32 kills as UCLA dispatched the visitors in 80 minutes.

UCLA dominated the match in every way, hitting .455 to BSU's -.021, serving three aces and committing no service reception errors and out-blocking the Cardinals, 12.0-5.5.

"I liked what I saw (on Wednesday) -- a very disciplined block," said Head Coach Al Scates. "We've worked hard on our defense and it was good tonight."

Friday's match will be High School/Club Volleyball Night. Please call 310-206-3444 for more information or to register a team.
