After a slow start where No. 4/4 UCLA attacked at a .000 efficiency in the first game, the Bruins used a season-high 13 aces during the final three games to defeat No. 7/8 BYU on Saturday night.
Micah Ma’a (five) and Sam Kobrine (four) had season-highs for aces. UCLA was again without the services of opposite, Brandon Rattray, so coach John Speraw went with a 6-2 offensive attack.
Individually, the Bruins were led by outside attacker Austin Matautia’s season-best 13 kills, while redshirt freshman Adam Parks had a season-high nine digs to go with 15 assists and seven kills.
