The defending NCAA champions are atop the season’s first Off the Block National Media Poll.

Hawai’i received all but two first-place votes in the latest college men’s volleyball National Media Poll that was released Tuesday.


The National Media Poll is the only rankings in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball solely determined by media members. The 10 teams receiving the most votes are ranked in the National Media Poll, while other schools earning votes but finishing outside of the top 10 are considered teams receiving votes.

A new national media poll is released every Tuesday during the regular season on Off the Block’s website.
