Bruins Finish Fourth at Santa Barbara Invitational
Jan. 8, 2010
The UCLA men's volleyball team fell in three games to Cal Baptist on Friday and finished fourth in the 46th Annual Santa Barbara Invitational.
Cal Baptist won 35-33, 31-29, 30-19 and captured third place. The Bruins' overall record fell to 1-2 entering Wednesday's league opener against USC at Pauley Pavilion.
The Bruins had their chances, but were unable to finish on a winning note in the first two games. In Game 1 with the score tied at 33-33, sophomore opposite Jack Polales committed a service error and junior outside hitter Dylan Bowermaster committed a hitting error to give the Lancers the victory.
In Game 2, the Bruins battled back from an early six-point hole and a late 27-29 deficit to tie the score at 29-29. But CBU got a kill and a block to go up 2-0 in games.
Senior Garrett Muagututia led the Bruins with 14 kills.
