STANFORD, Calif. - The eighth-ranked Long Beach State men's volleyball team saw its three-match win streak come to an end Friday night as it was swept by No. 5 Stanford at Maples Pavilion. Set scores were 25-13, 25-16, 25-18.
The 49ers (13-13, 8-11 MPSF) were unable to get much going on the offensive end as they hit just .098 as a team. Senior Srdjan Nadazdin had a team-high seven kills. Sophomore Taylor Crabb added five kills and 10 digs.
In the first set, LBSU took a 4-3 lead on a Colten Echave ace, but Stanford proceeded to go on a 6-1 spurt to pull ahead, 9-5. The 49ers eventually closed the gap to 10-9 on a kill from Trevor Crabb and trailed 13-10 before the Cardinal outscored Long Beach State, 12-3, to run away with the 25-13 victory.
Stanford (17-6, 14-5 MPSF) raced out to a 7-2 advantage in the second set and never looked back as it prevailed, 25-16. The 49ers came within three at 10-7, but the home team would then go up by as many as 10 en route to the win.
The Cardinal held the early lead again in the third frame when an attack error by Jim Baughman gave them the 10-3 edge. Long Beach State made a late push, using a 4-1 spurt, capped by back-to-back kills from Baughman, to make it 19-15. After Stanford called a timeout, it sided out and cruised to the 25-18 win.
Brian Cook and Brad Lawson paced Stanford with 14 kills each. Erik Shoji also finished with a match-high 17 digs.
Long Beach State is back in action on Saturday, April 7, when it heads to Stockton for a 7 p.m. MPSF match against No. 13 Pacific.
