For a program that has grown so accustomed to winning, perhaps the greatest accomplishment achieved by UC Irvine men's volleyball is its ability to withstand loss. After capturing their third NCAA title in six seasons in 2012, the Anteaters last season absorbed the loss of their figurehead, leader and coach, John Speraw, as well as a four-time All-American in Carson Clark, who just happens to be the school's all-time kills leader. The result was yet another national crown that first-year coach and former Speraw assistant David Kniffin trumpeted as a triumph of the culture of success that permeates the program.

Like gears engineered with precision, synchronous by design, Marco Franco and Tarek Morad operate cohesively within conversational distance of one another on the soccer pitch. Both senior center defenders for Big West Conference Tournament champion UC Irvine, the duo, with their less-than-menacing middleweight physiques, continually shut down opposing attackers with the acumen of master pick-pockets. If it's a shin-scraping tackle, or a strong-armed tug of a jersey to gain positioning that is your idea of entertaining defense, you wouldn't much care for the consummate finesse with which these two former Chino Hills High teammates deliver healthy doses of frustration to strikers whose worth is judged on a statistical scale.
