After taking a 2-0 lead against No. 10 Hawaii, the sixth-ranked Stanford men’s volleyball team had to rally to defeat the Rainbow Warriors (25-23, 25-13, 17-25, 21-25, 15-7), Saturday at Maples Pavilion in Stanford, Calif.



“Hawaii is probably one of the best serving teams in our conference, they bring a lot of service pressure,” senior outside hitter Brian Cook said. “We were able to serve and pass and hang with them, and that is really what won this game. We didn’t pass perfectly, which the numbers in the middle sets probably reflect, but we passed well enough to get the job done.”

With Hawaii having the momentum after winning the third and fourth sets, Stanford had to regroup going into the fifth. It marked the sixth fifth-set match of the season for the Cardinal, which had previously been 0-5.

“It is time to win a fifth set. That was the message we had for each other,” Cook said.
