Cardinal not able to rally for first NCAA title since 2010

The No. 3 Stanford men’s volleyball team came up short against top seeded Loyola-Chicago in the NCAA title match on Saturday evening, falling to the Ramblers in four sets (25-17, 19-25, 25-19, 25-15) in front of a sold-out crowd of 4,485. While the Cardinal fought hard, Loyola-Chicago and its home court advantage proved too much for Stanford, which was seeking to win its third national title in program history. Stanford is now 2-3 in NCAA championship matches.

Win streak swept away in MPSF title match

The second-seeded Stanford men’s volleyball team was swept for the first time this season on Saturday, losing the MPSF title match to top seed BYU, 25-23, 25-22, 25-22, at the BYU Smith Fieldhouse in Provo, Utah. The loss ended the Cardinal’s impressive 13-match winning streak, which was their longest since 1997.

Volleyball carries nine-game win streak into final road trip

Stanford men’s volleyball will take to the road this weekend to play their last two matches of the regular season in Southern California. The No. 4 Cardinal (18-7, 15-7 MPSF) have already secured a spot in the MPSF Tournament, so the team knows these will not be its last matches of the season. However, these last games will decide where the Cardinal will be ranked in conference heading into the conference tournament.
