To maximize playing time for all of their players, each team fielded "I" and "II" squads.

The USC II team lost to BYU II, 26-30, 30-27, 25-30, 30-28, 16-14, then defeated Hawaii II, 30-28, 30-27, 27-30, 30-24, on the first day of pool play. Then on Saturday in the fifth place match, USC II topped Hawaii II 30-20, 27-30, 30-17, 30-27.
