Home double-header on deck for men’s volleyball

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.

Men’s volleyball knocked out in first round of MPSFs

After a tremendous season, No. 5 Stanford men’s volleyball (19-6, 17-5 MPSF) fell short in the MPSF quarterfinals, losing in five sets to No. 6 UC Santa Barbara (20-9, 14-8). The Cardinal rallied from an 0-2 set deficit to force a decisive fifth set, but they were defeated 20-25, 23-25, 25-23, 25-21, 12-15 and are effectively eliminated from any further postseason play.
