MPSF Weekend

| No Comments

No. 1 USC men's volleyball will host the MPSF Championships this Thursday and Saturday as the top four teams in collegiate volleyball converge on Galen Center.

The semifinals begin tonight at 5 p.m. with Stanford vs. BYU followed by USC vs. UC Irvine at 7:30 p.m.  The matches will be broadcast LIVE for FREE on

Thanks to an active 18-match win streak, the Trojans are on the doorstep of a Final Four berth needing only a win against UCI to seal their fate.  Senior captain Tony Ciarelli, profiled by Gary Klein in the LA Times, has been the catalyst for this unexpected run.

Ciarelli, who has already earned MPSF Player of the Year honors, was named an AVCA first team All-American.  Senior co-captain Steven Shandrick, freshman setter Micah Christenson and sophomore libero Henry Cassiday made the second team.

Ciarelli, fellow co-captain Steven Shandrick and freshman setter Micah Christenson joined the voice of USC men's volleyball Dustin Avol for a preview of the weekend's action.
