Drew Staker helped the then-10th ranked Matadors to a pair of upset wins over No. 8 USC and No. 5 Pepperdine. The senior middle blocker hit .444 with one ace and five blocks against the Trojans and came back with eight kills (.400) and matched his career-high with 10 blocks as CSUN knocked off the Waves in five. Heading into MPSF matches against Stanford and Pacific this week, Staker ranks second in the conference in hitting at .509 and is ninth in blocking at 1.23 bpg.
