NCAA Men: UCI Regains No. 2 Spot

By March 6, 2012

Follow me on:

The AVCA Poll remained largely unchanged this week, save for a swap of places at the top. UCI avenged its loss to Stanford two weeks ago by marching into Palo Alto and beating the Cardinal in four sets.

UCI moved back into second place this week while Stanford fell one spot to No. 3. Stanford still has the advantage over UCI in the MPSF rankings where the two teams are tied for second place. Stanford beat UCI 3-0 in the first meeting, giving the Cardinal a 4-3 set advantage if it should come down to that.

UCLA remains in the No. 1 spot after easily doing away with CSUN and Long Beach in three sets apiece. USC stays in the No. 4 spot after beating Hawaii in five sets and three sets last weekend.

BYU holds on to the No. 5 spot after beating Pepperdine in three the first night and four the second. The match of the week is up in Westwood where No. 1 UCLA will take on No. 2 UCI for the first time this season.

Here are the rest of your matches to watch this week:

Wednesday, March 7th
No. 2 UCI @ No. 12 UCSB
No. 14 Hawaii @ No. 3 Stanford

Friday, March 9th
No. 6 Penn State @ No. 4 USC
No. 11 Pacific @ No. 5 BYU
No. 15 Loyola-Chicago @ No. 12 CSUN

Saturday, March 10th
No. 2 UCI @ No. 1 UCLA
No. 4 USC @ No. 10 Pepperdine
No. 11 Pacific @ No. 5 BYU
No. 7 Lewis @ No. 8 Long Beach State
