Cardinal prepare for TJ DeFalco, take on defending national champions

Coming off of a closely contested double-header versus No. 10 Brigham Young (8-5, 4-3 MPSF), No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (12-6, 4-3 MPSF) now looks to the most formidable opponent of them all, nearly perfect No. 1 Long Beach State (15-0, 2-0 Big West).
