Dylan Kordic, a senior who converted to setter last season, relieved an injured Evan Barry and led Stanford to a 25-22, 23-25, 24-26, 25-22, 15-12 victory over Ohio State in a Saturday matchup of the past two NCAA men’s volleyball champions.

Barry, who has started every match this season, suffered an apparent leg injury in the third set. Though he walked off the court under his own power, he did not return. His status and injury are uncertain. Instead, Kordic, who has played only four sets in two seasons, had 23 assists while guiding the No. 4 Cardinal (5-2) past the defending national champion Buckeyes (6-4), ranked No. 10, at St. John Arena.

Sophomores Brian Cook and Steven Irvin, and senior Brad Lawson, tied for team-high kill honors with 17, offsetting the 30 kills of Ohio State senior Shawn Sangrey. All-America libero Erik Shoji had 16 digs and kept the Cardinal withstand a potent Buckeye attack. Stanford trailed in the fifth set, 8-5, before taking the lead 10-9 on the second of back-to-back kills by Lawson on a sequence in which Stanford fought off four Buckeye attacks. At 10-10, an Irvin kill and service ace put Stanford ahead for good. The Cardinal finished it off with a solo block by Lawson on match point.
