USC defeated No. 3/4 UC Irvine in four games last night at Galen Center. The Trojans got off to a hot start, as they converted on their first 17 side-out opportunities. The Trojans also attacked at a blistering .690 clip in Set 1. USC’s service pressure (three aces) and blocking (five blocks) in the fourth game sealed the game in favor of the Trojans. The Trojans were led by a balanced, three-pronged attack of Jack Wyett (19 kills), Ryan Moss (16 kills), and Gianluca Grasso (14 kills). For UC Irvine, both outside attacker Joel Schneidmiller and opposite Karl Apfelbach had off nights – attacking in the low .100’s.
