Agreed.  The first two games were won pretty easily by Stanford, but the
next three were close all the way.  Stanford generally fell behind in the
middle, then caught up to tie the score somewhere around 11-13 points, only
to have BYU rally for the victory.

BYU won the fifth, rally-scored game, by a score of 16-14.  That one was even
more amazing.  Stanford fell behind by a couple of points in the middle,
something like 7-10.  In a rally-scored game, that's a pretty deep hole to try
to dig out of.  But with fabulous play and some luck they tied it up.  After
getting a sideout Ruben (the coach) subbed in a 6'7" (or so) freshman for 5'10"
setter Stuart Chong (who was in the front row), to try to get a big block.
Note that this meant Stanford had NO setter on the court!  Mike Lambert (big
hitter, big jump server) was serving, and the combination earned two points, to
tie the score at 10.  Stanford had all the momentum.  A couple of sideouts, and
It went up by 1's to 14 each.  Then a couple of hitting errors, and BYU won
16-14.

I went to the BYU vs Stanford game last night and it was one of the best
matches I have ever witnessed.  I certainly did get my money's worth.  
The Cardinal went up two games, but BYU pulled it together and won the
next three games with the fifth game being 15-13.  I thought that
Stanford had better players, but BYU played like a team.  Kevin Hambly
was the MAN!!!  Almost every time he was set, he had a kill.  He did
miss some easy digs in the back row, but still, that man has my vote for
first team All-American.

I was wondering if anyone has the stat sheet for that game and could
post it up.  I would greatly appreciate it.
