The Ohio State men’s volleyball team won their first national championship with a five-set victory over UC Santa Barbara, 20-25, 25-20, 25-19, 22-25, 15-9 in the finals at Penn State University.

Shawn Sangrey, a junior from Columbia, Pennsylvania, had a career-high 30 kills, the last three coming in the final moments of the fifth set. Then, senior setter Steve Kehoe leaped to block UCSB All-American Jeff Menzel’s last shot at keeping the Gauchos alive, and the third-seeded Buckeyes walked off with the title.

Ohio State (26-6) made its 18th trip to the final four and its third appearance in the title game.

Sangrey, was very elated playing on the court where he won two high school state titles.

UCSB advanced to the title game by knocking off #1 USC.

Evan Turner proved that he is human and can have an “off” night. The Buckeyes have proven all season that they are not a one-man team and can win games without Turner scoring 20 or 30 points and if he’s injured.

Ohio State jumped on the backs of Jon Diebler and William Buford and the defensive prowess of Dallas Lauderdale, for a 68-51 victory over pesky and persistent California-Santa Barbara in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night.

Diebler scored 23 points and Lauderdale blocked a career-high eight shots and grabbed 12 rebounds for the #2 seeded Buckeyes who up their record to 28-7.

Diebler’s play was very impressive due in part that spent the whole week fighting off symtoms of the flu.

Turner scored only nine points on 2-of 13 shooting from the floor. He did pull down 10 rebounds. He seemed to have trouble playing against the Gauchos matchup zone defense.

The Buckeyes advanced to play Sunday against the number 10 seed Georgia Tech, who upset seventh-seeded Oklahoma State 64-59 on Friday.

Orlando Johnson scored 20 points for the number 15 seed UC Santa Barbara, who end the season at 20-10.
