- For those who missed it ..
- Brook Sedore, a 6-5 junior opposite for No. 8 University of Hawai'i, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division I-II National Player of the Week. Faced with two consecutive home matches against then-No. 3 UCLA, Sedore played some of the best volleyball in his career leading the Rainbow Warriors to a pair of wins. In the first match he recorded a season-high 24 kills on .452 hitting with two digs and as many blocks in the four-set win. He maintained his high level of play in the rematch, this time smashing a match-high 22 kills and hit an even .400 with five digs. For the week, his 5.11 kills per set average were well above his 3.62 season average. Entering the weekend, Sedore had only one 20-plus kill match on the season as Hawai'I jumped three spots from No. 11 in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll. It was their first MPSF series sweep of UCLA since 2006.
This is the 18th time in program history a Hawaii student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/Player of the Week honors, with the most recent coming from Sinisa Zarkovic on March 12, 2013.
No real surprise but you just never know. National award given out tomorrow.
Brook Sedore was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week following his performance in the Rainbow Warriors’ two-match sweep of UCLA over the weekend.
Sedore, a junior opposite from Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, averaged 5.11 kills per set and hit .427 during the series. He matched his season-high of 24 kills on .452 hitting in the team’s four-set victory on Friday and tallied 22 kills, hitting .400, in the five-set win on Saturday. He also served an ace each night, and combined for seven digs and three blocks. Prior to the weekend, Sedore had only one 20-plus kill match this season.
For the season, Sedore leads the team with a 3.62 kill average while hitting at a .320 clip. He also leads the team with 18 service aces.
He is the first Rainbow Warrior to be honored by the conference this season and it marks the second weekly of his career.
Sefore and the Rainbow Warriors host No. 8 UC Irvine Friday, March 7 and Sunday, March 9 in a pivotal MPSF series this week. Following the two wins, UH moved up three spots into a tie with UCI for eighth in this week’s AVCA Top 15 poll.
A little surprised but
1. Loyola 11 votes. 2. BYU 7 votes. 3. Long Beach State. 4. Pepperdine. 5. UCLA. 6. USC. 7 UCSB. 8. Hawaii and UC Irvine. 10 Stanford
First time since 2006 that UH has won the MPSF series with UCLA. Was very impressed that the Warriors were able to overcome a 0-3 hole and poor officiating. Here's my breaking news story.
Brook Sedore put down a match-high 22 kills and No. 11 Hawaii upset No. 3 UCLA for a second straight night in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation volleyball play, prevailing 22-25, 25-18, 24-26, 25-16, 15-11 Saturday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.
Siki Zarkovic added 13 kills and three aces for the Rainbow Warriors (11-6, 9-5 MPSF). It was first time since 2006 that Hawaii took the conference series against the Bruins (13-4, 10-4).
Robart Page led UCLA with 16 kills and Gonzalo Quiroga added 15. Hawaii Baptist graduate Michael Fisher, a freshman outside hitter, finished with a career-high 13 kills over the 2 hours and 38 minutes.
A turnstile crowd of 2,714 (3,818) saw Hawaii trail 3-0 and 6-2 to start Set 5. The Rainbow Warriors rallied to tie at 6, the first of six ties in the final set.
Hawaii broke an 11-all deadlock on one of Taylor Averill's 10 kills to jumpstart a 4-0 closing run. The Rainbow Warriors finished it out on a Page hitting error, an ace by Zarkovic and Sedore's final kill.
Hawaii outblocked UCLA 10-7.5, with Nick West in on eight. The Rainbow Warriors finished with a 6-3 advantage in aces and 34-29 edge in digs in handing the Bruins consecutive losses for the first time this season..
