Bruins Sweep Pacific for 18th Victory

March 8, 2002

The top-ranked UCLA men's volleyball team continued its six-match homestand by defeating No.14 Pacific, 3-0, in Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins (18-3, 12-2) won 33-31, 30-22, 31-29 in 90 minutes before 393 spectators. The Tigers fell to 6-13 overall, 4-11 in league play.

UCLA junior Cameron Mount led both teams with 22 kills (.563) and added five digs, three block assists, and an ace. Senior Matt Komer recorded 15 kills (.379) with five digs.

Both teams recorded 10 blocks, but the Bruins managed to limit the Tigers' attack to a percentage of .226.

Aaron Wachtfogel led UOP with 15 kills, but was held to a hitting percentage of .171. Tim Gerlach added 13 kills (.579) and Sean Rogers contributed 11 (.429).

The Tigers overcame a four-point deficit in Game 1 to tie the score at 27-27. Both teams played tag until the Bruins broke a 31-31 tie on a kill by Komer and a UOP hitting error.

In Game 2, the Bruins took control after the Tigers tied it at 15-15. Two kills by Mount, and a pair of UOP hitting errors gave the Bruins a four-point lead that was never threatened.

Pacific managed to keep Game 3 close and took a 27-26 lead before a kill by Mount tied up the score. The Tigers called timeout after Mount and sophomore Chris Pena blocked a kill attempt by Wachtfogel to give the Bruins a 28-27 lead. A UCLA service error tied the score, but a kill by Mount gave the Bruins at 29-28 advantage. Gerlach tied it up at 29-29 with his 15th kill, but Mount slammed two kills after long rallies to complete the sweep.

The Bruins will host Stanford Saturday, Mar. 9 at 5 p.m. in Pauley Pavilion. The Cardinal (12-7, 11-5) defeated UC Irvine, 3-0, on Friday in Irvine.
