Gauchos recover to crush Waves




MALIBU -- Andy Rivera posted a team-high 15 kills and Ben Koski added 14 to lead the UCSB men's volleyball team to a come-from-behind victory over Pepperdine on Monday in the final day of the Millie Severson Tournament.

After a slow start, UCSB hit .389 in game four to topple the Waves 25-30, 30-28, 30-27, 30-26. Pepperdine was ranked No. 8 in Vollyeball Monthly's preseason poll.

"We had a lot of hitting errors in the first game, then I subbed in Keith Busam in game two and he caught fire," said UCSB coach Ken Preston. "We came back, played well and it was nice to come back by using our bench, but it's very early still in the season."


Busam finished with 11 kills while Anders Bengtsson hit .500 and added 10 kills, giving the Gauchos four players in double-figures.


The victory left UCSB (3-0) as the only participant in the round-robin event to go unbeaten.
