(March 1, 2014) - UH did the seemingly impossible, twice. They defeated the No.3 UCLA Bruins, two nights in a row. With many people questioning whether they’d be able to repeat their epic performance from Friday, the Rainbow Warrior’s answered the call and conquered their visitors in five down to the wire sets: 22-25, 25-18, 24-26, 25-16, 15-11.
The first set saw the Bruin’s looking to exact revenge for last night’s major upset as they came out with a 7-2 run which had the Rainbow Warriors on their heels. With Hawai’i playing timid early, the Bruin’s relaxed and eased their grip on the game. The Rainbow Warriors capitalized and put together a 7-4 run of their own, highlighted by scorching kills from Sinisa Zarkovic. “Siki” left the arena with 13 kills.
