Last season ASU reached the championship match thanks to a Cinderella run that featured 4-3 upsets over UCLA and Stanford en route to a 4-1 loss to USC. The win over UCLA was ASU's first since reinstatement, and Max McKennon made his name known thanks to a defining three-set win against Stanford's Timothy Sah at No. 5 to clinch the win for the Sun Devils.
