In preparation for the first round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Men’s Volleyball Tournament (MPSF), which will begin on Saturday, the conference released its All-MPSF Volleyball Selections yesterday, April 11. No. 8 Stanford (15-10, 6-6 MPSF) and No. 12 Brigham Young (12-11, 6-6 MPSF) both have five selections and are tied for the most.
The No. 8 men’s volleyball team (11-5, 1-1 MPSF) successfully claimed its third consecutive sweep, defeating UC San Diego on Saturday night (6-10, 0-3 Big West). The team continued its high level of play, and the men showed resilience when UCSD made runs late into the match.
After being derailed by a two week road trip, the Stanford men’s volleyball 2019 Revenge Tour is back in full swing. The No. 9 Cardinal (9-5, 2-2 MPSF) swept Concordia University (5-10, 1-2) in three sets on Saturday. The Eagles had dispatched the Cardinal in three sets almost exactly a year ago.
In a five-set thriller, No. 9 Stanford men’s volleyball (8-5, 1-2 MPSF) put down upstart No. 14 USC (7-5, 1-1). The Cardinal earned their first conference victory after falling to UCLA and Pepperdine last week.
Concluding a tough two week road trip, No. 9 Stanford men’s volleyball team (7-5, 0-2 MPSF) was swept in three sets by No. 5 Pepperdine (8-2, 2-0 MPSF) on Friday night.
This weekend No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (7-1, 0-0 MPSF) will hit the road for the first time this season to face off against No. 2 Hawaii (3-0, 0-0 Big West) in a double header in Honolulu. The undefeated Rainbow Warriors will be the Cardinal’s toughest competition yet, and they showcase a stacked and experienced international roster.
Looking to rebound from a close loss on Saturday against the No. 3 UC Irvine (6-1, 0-0 Big West), No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (5-1, 0-0 MPSF) will now play another home double-header versus No. 15 Purdue Fort Wayne (4-2, 0-0 Summit League) on Friday and Saturday nights. The games will test the Cardinal’s ability to rebound after their first loss and will show how resilient Stanford really is.
In an upset for the ages and the unquestioned game of the season thus far, No. 9 Stanford men’s volleyball (5-0) took down the second-ranked UC Irvine (5-1) in four sets. This victory marks the third consecutive ranked win for the team, and the Stanford Revenge Tour rolls onward.
