Most observers of NCAA men’s college volleyball would likely agree that the best four teams remain.

Thursday night in Ohio State’s St. John Arena, top-ranked and second-seeded Long Beach State (27-3) plays third-seeded and fourth-ranked BYU (25-4).

Then, the second-ranked and top-seeded Buckeyes (30-2), also the defending champions, get to play on their home floor against fourth-seeded and third-ranked Hawai’i (27-5) at 6 p.m. Eastern.

The winners advance to Saturday night’s National Collegiate Men’s Volleyball Championship match.

Ohio State, champion of the MIVA, did not play either Hawai’i or BYU this season.
