    The USC men’s volleyball team had mixed results in the 9-team pre-season USC Fall Tournament on Saturday (Oct. 22) in the Galen Center Pavilion.

    The Trojans split into 2 squads (a Cardinal and a Gold team) in the tourney that featured best-of-3 matches to 25 points (the third set was 15 points). For matches that were decided in 2 sets, teams in the tourney had the option of playing a non-counting third set.

    USC’s Gold squad went 1-2-1 overall. It defeated Cal Baptist, 25-18, 25-16 (and won a third set, 15-12), lost to both Pepperdine and Grand Canyon by identical scores, 25-22, 25-22 (and 10-15 in the third set) and tied UC Santa Barbara (21-20, 20-25) in the last match of the day.

    USC’s Cardinal team went 0-3-1, tying Cal Baptist (25-19, 22-25) and falling to Concordia (25-23, 25-15), UC Santa Barbara (25-18, 25-20 and 15-7 in a third set) and Cal State Northridge (25-19, 25-20).

    Long Beach State went 4-0 in the tourney, Cal State Northridge and Concordia both were 3-1, UC Santa Barbara was 2-1-1, Pepperdine was 1-2-1, Grand Canyon was 1-3 and Cal Baptist was 0-2-2.

    The Trojans next continue their pre-season competition by playing at the UCLA SAC Tournament on Nov. 11 and 12. Troy begins its 2017 regular season with a non-conference match at Concordia on Jan. 3 and then playing in the Big Ten/Pac-12 Challenge, meeting host Ohio State on Jan. 6 and then Penn State on Jan. 7 before opening MPSF play at home against Long Beach State on Jan. 11.
