From the MPSF

University of Hawai’i men’s volleyball senior middle blocker Taylor Averill was named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation/Molten Player of the Week for Jan. 5-11 after leading the Rainbow Warriors to a season-opening three-set win (25-19, 25-14, 25-23) over Stevens Institute of Technology last Saturday.

The All-American and two-time All-MPSF honoree netted a team-high 13 kills, boasting a .619 hitting percentage without a single error. Averill also led the team with five blocks, and produced one of UH’s three service aces for the night, all to earn a first week conference-best 17 points. It is Averill’s first career weekly award.

The No. 10 Rainbow Warriors continue a six-game home-stand Jan. 8-9, 11 as they host the 21st Outrigger Resorts Invitational at the Stan Sheriff Center. The tournament will consist of five matches featuring UH, Penn State, Ohio State and UC Irvine.

    5 matches? It’s not a round robin anymore?

    Mentioned here a few weeks ago that the two applicants I knew of were Kevin Wong and Jeff Hall.

    Someone else mentioned Brad Kellar. Had heard he was in contention for another job.

    2. yes, odd tournament format. doubleheaders Thursday-Firday, single match Sunday.
    Ohio State and Penn State don’t play each other. might be because they couldn’t stay for Sunday match. I know Penn State very strict on how many class days can be missed.
    Men’s basketball on Saturday.
