Video: Dominant performance by Gyimah powers No. 4/4 UCLA past No. 9/9 Stanford


No. 4/4 UCLA won their opening match of MPSF conference play by defeating No. 9/9 at home in #CincoSets on Thursday night. The Bruins came from behind as they were down two games to one, and also down 23-21 in the fourth game (they came back and won that game, 26-24). UCLA started off slowly in the first game where they had a combined 11 attack errors. Stanford had 17 blocks for the game, 8.5 of which game in the first game. Individually, the Cardinal were led by sophomore opposite, Jaylen Jasper, who had 20 kills on the night. The Bruins, who were without the services of Adam Parks, Brandon Rattray, and Dylan Missry, looked to junior middle attacker, Daenen Gyimah, who had a career-high 25 kills. Gyimah’s previous personal best was 21 kills in the 2018 NCAA tournament final. UC Irvine transfer Matthew Younggren came off the bench to ignite the Bruin comeback with seven blocks.
