UCLA Visits USC for MPSF Showdown

March 30, 2007

The UCLA men's volleyball team, ranked fourth nationally, travels to USC Sat., Mar. 31 for a key MPSF match at the Galen Center. First serve is set for 8 p.m.

The match will be televised on a delayed broadcast by FoxSports beginning at 9 p.m. that evening. Bill Macdonald will call the play-by-play and Karch Kiraly and Steve Obradovich will provide commentary.

Darren Preston will provide the live play-by-play radio highlights on uclabruins.com.

Both teams suffered MPSF losses on Thursday and saw their winning streaks snapped. The Bruins (14-10, 9-9) lost in four games at top-ranked Pepperdine, and the 12th-ranked Trojans (10-12, 7-10) lost in three at home against No. 2 UC Irvine.

Despite the setbacks both teams remained in contention for playoff spots in the MPSF Tournament.

On Jan. 27, USC handed UCLA a 3-0 defeat at Pauley Pavilion. The loss was just the Bruins' second in their previous 29 matches against the Trojans. UCLA leads the overall series with USC, 84-31, including 12-2 in the Lexus Gauntlet series. This season, UCLA leads the cross-town rivalry series 47.5-22.5.
