OU sweeps Kansas volleyball

October 17, 2010


Oklahoma University’s volleyball team swept Kansas University on Saturday night, ending the Jayhawks’ four-game homecourt win streak.

The Sooners rolled, 25-22, 25-12, 25-20 before a crowd of 1,059 at Horejsi Center.

“No. 1, our first contact was not up to Big 12 standards. We struggled passing the ball,” KU coach Ray Bechard said. “Our defense was not as organized as it should have been and we needed to do more things offensively. But we need to commend Oklahoma for playing a near flawless match. They had two unforced hitting errors in three sets, which is unheard of.”

Oklahoma (14-6, 6-3) hit at a .390 clip for the match — the highest hitting percentage of a KU opponent this season. Entering the match, the Jayhawks ranked second in the conference by limiting foes to a .164 attack percentage.

KU (13-7, 5-4) hit .130. The Jayhawks were led by senior Karina Garlington and junior Allison Mayfield, who each finished with 10 kills. Senior Jenna Kaiser followed had six kills, Nicole Tate four and Tayler Tolefree three.

Melissa Manda had 12 digs, while Mayfield had seven.
