Crusaders move up in poll

UH men spike Alberta

The University of Hawaii men's volleyball team defeated Alberta University of Canada, 15-6, 15-5, 15-9, in an exhibition match last night at Klum Gym.

"I think we looked good and I was pretty pleased," said UH coach Mike Wilton. "The match was over in an hour, which surprised me because Alberta's a good team. Maybe they were somewhat jet-lagged."
