Volleyball: Hawaii Beats BYU

Wahine make it a quick night in Provo as they easily dispatch the Cougars in three games.

Provo, UT. - The last time the Hawaii and BYU women's volleyball teams met was in 1998 for the WAC tournament title in Las Vegas. It became one of the greatest matches in the history of the sport, as the Wahine outlasted the Cougars in five games in a NCAA record time of over three and a half hours. Tuesday night in Provo it only took UH three games and an hour and a half.

 

The second ranked Wahine had no problem with BYU, winning by the scores of 30-23, 30-19, 30-17 to improve their record to 29-1. BYU, suffering one of their worse season ever, fell to 14-18.

 

Kim Willoughby crushed down 20 kills and had five service aces and Lily Kahumoku added 11 kills of her own.

 

The Wahine were without Maja Gustin who suffered a muscle strain in last Sunday's match against Nevada. Gustin status is day to day.

 

Hawaii will conclude their regular season Wednesday night at 24th ranked Utah. A win by Hawaii would give head coach Dave Shoji his 800th of his career, something only three other women's coaches have ever done.
