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.
Looking to win their first game on the road, No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (11-5, 3-2 MPSF) travels to Provo, Utah to take on No. 9 Brigham Young University (7-4, 3-2 MPSF) tonight. BYU is yet to lose a home game this season, but this statistic should not deter the Cardinal — who enter the game on a win streak.
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.
No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (10-5, 3-2 MPSF) broke open the broom closet for the second straight match to sweep Grand Canyon University (GCU) (7-9, 0-4 MPSF). The team played efficient volleyball, closing out the match in just over an hour. That hour saw just seven total tie scores and a singular lead change.
Tonight, No. 8 Stanford men’s volleyball (9-5, 2-2 MPSF) will attempt to extend its current win streak to three games against Grand Canyon University (7-8, 0-3 MPSF). The Cardinal are currently ranked third in the Mountain Pacific Sports Conference, while the Lopes are last.
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.
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.
