LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Brigham Young became only the second non-California school to win the NCAA men's volleyball championship, defeating Long Beach State 15-9, 15-7, 15-10 on Saturday.

Ossie Antonetti was selected as the tournament's most outstanding player.

Antonetti, a 6-foot-1 senior from Puerto Rico, made a match-high 22 kills as the top-seeded Cougars (30-1) won the title in their first NCAA tournament appearance. Brigham Young began playing in Division I in 1990 after winning three national club titles in the 1980s.

David McKienzie led the 49ers (22-4) with 19 kills and Jim Polster added 18. McKienzie made an NCAA-record 58 kills on March 19 as Long Beach handed the Cougars their only loss of the season, ending an 18-match winning streak.

Brigham Young trailed only three times in the 1-hour, 57-minute championship match, 2-1 in the first game and 7-0 and 10-7 in the third.

The Cougars went up 8-3 in the first game, following a 7-1 run. The 49ers cut the deficit to 9-7 and 11-9 before Brigham Young scored the game's final four points.

The Cougars weren't threatened in the second game, building 7-1 and 10-3 leads as Long Beach struggled offensively, matching its 14 kills with 14 errors.

The 49ers opened the third game with seven consecutive points, only to have Brigham Young respond with seven of its own. Long Beach reclaimed a 10-7 lead, but the Cougars closed out the match with eight consecutive points, winning on Antonetti's kill.

Brigham Young senior Ryan Millar, who had 15 kills, was also named to the all-tournament team, as was McKienzie and 49ers setter Chris Seiffert, who had 65 assists. Jose Quinones of Penn State and Scott Lane of Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne, the semifinal losers, rounded out the all-tournament team.

Penn State, the 1994 champion, is the only other school outside California to win the title.
