Bruins fall in 5 to the Matadors tonight, 25-22, 19-25, 28-26, 16-25, 23-21. UCLA hit .433, had a 11-4.5 edge in blocks. and still lost.
CSUN had 9 aces but 25 service errors. Bruins with 4 aces, 18 SEs.
some other results: UCSB def. Long Beach State 3-2, Stanford def. UOP 3-0
UCLA at 12-9, UH at 11-9 for that final spot.
UCLA has gone 2-7 in its last nine, a slide started by the 2 losses to Hawaii. Bruins are at Long Beach Saturday, host Cal Baptist and BYU to finish out the season.
Bottom line is Hawaii needs to win. if the Warriors end up tied with the Bruins, Hawaii has the tiebreaker.
BYU has already clinched at 18-2. could lose its last four and still be the top seed since they have the tiebreak on pepperdine 15-6, the only team with a mathematical chance of tying them if the Cougars lose their last four.
