No. 10 USC Men's Volleyball Goes To No. 1 Long Beach State For MPSF Tourney Quarterfinal Match|
April 11, 2017
The No. 10-ranked USC men’s volleyball team (14-13 overall, 8-10 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) returns to the MPSF Tournament after a year’s hiatus when it visits No. 1 Long Beach State (24-3, 16-2) in a quarterfinal match on Saturday (April 15) at 7 p.m. PT. The Trojans handed the 49ers one of their 3 losses in 2017. If the eighth-seed Trojans defeat the top-seed 49ers, USC would advance to the April 20 MPSF semifinals to play at the winner of Saturday’s UC Irvine-UCLA match (the semis and the April 22 final will be at the home of the tourney’s top remaining seed). Lucas Yoder leads the nation in kills (second in points), Gert Lisha is second in assists and Andy Benesh is fifth in hitting percentage.
