Bruins Sweep Warriors

Feb. 2, 2007

Box Score

Eighth-ranked UCLA swept ninth-ranked Hawai'i Friday night in Pauley Pavilion, giving the Bruins a modest two-match winning streak on their way to climbing back into the MPSF playoff picture.

The Bruins won 30-21, 30-26, 30-27 in 80 minutes before 899 fans. The Bruins raised their overall record to 5-6, 3-5 in MPSF play. The Warriors fell to 2-6, 2-4. The victory was the Bruins' third straight over the Warriors.

UCLA improved markedly since its 3-1 victory against Hawai'i two nights ago, while the Warriors regressed from an otherwise solid performance, albeit serving. On Wednesday, UH served 27 service errors against zero aces, while out-playing UCLA in every other statistical area. Friday, the Bruins dominated, out-serving UH 7-3, out-blocking them 9.0-4.5, out-hitting them in kills and percentage 52-44 and .402-.274, respectively.

In Games 2 and 3, Hawai'i mounted comebacks from deficits, but the Bruins answered the challenge, getting key kills from senior Steve Klosterman and sophomore Jamie Diefenbach.

Diefenbach led the Bruins with 17 kills (.542) and Klosterman added 15 (.387) with a season-high of four aces. Red-shirt freshman Brett Perrine also added nine kills (.400) with a team-high of five total blocks.

Sophomore Jim Clar led UH with 17 kills (.323), followed by 10 kills from junior Jacob Schkud.

The Bruins continue their home stand next week with conference matches against Pacific on Feb. 9 and Stanford on Feb. 10.
