LOS -- In only the team's second loss this season, the No. 1 BYU men's volleyball team (17-2, 12-2) was upset by No. 9 UCLA (14-10, 9-7) at Pauley Pavilion Friday night in four sets (28-30, 30-23, 23-30, 21-30).

BYU senior opposite Jonathan Charette led all attackers with 19 kills, but only senior middle blocker Russell Holmes joined him in double-digit kills as the Cougars were held to their lowest attack percentage on the season at .211. In contratst, the Bruins became the only team to hit above .300 against BYU this year at .324.

"We struggled offensively, and they played great defense," BYU head coach Shawn Patchell said. "Their libero had 21 digs, and as a result they had more swings than we had. Our most positive note tonight was Jonathan Charette. He had a great weekend."

Holmes added a match-best six blocks to his 10 kills. UCLA still recorded 10.5 total team blocks to BYU's eight, though. Four Bruins were also able to hit in double figures on the night.

The Cougars will continue to play on the road next week as they had to Mountain Pacific Sports Federation powerhouse Long Beach State for back-to-back matches Thursday and Friday. The team will then return home for matches against UC Santa Barbara March 28 and 29 at the Smith Fieldhouse.
