Long Beach State sweeps Hawaii men’s volleyball team in title game rematch

HONOLULU — Long Beach State was looking forward to this.

With emotion plain on the faces of Beach players, No. 4 LBSU operated at a high level and served up a measure of payback to two-time defending national men’s volleyball champion Hawaii with a stunning sweep of the top-ranked Rainbow Warriors, 25-20, 29-27, 25-22, in front of 6,709 at the Stan Sheriff Center on Friday.

UH swept its rival in the 2022 Big West tournament championship match, then the NCAA national title game.

The Beach, even with last year’s AVCA National Player of the Year Alex Nikolov nowhere on the Manoa Lower Campus premises, had all the answers this time against essentially the same Hawaii team.
