In NCAA Tournament play, heading home is not typically good news, but don't tell that to the Kentucky volleyball team. Facing No. 16 national seed Texas A&M on its home floor in College Station, Texas, the Wildcats posted a 3-0 sweep (25-18, 25-21, 25-19) of the Aggies to book a trip back to Lexington, where UK will play in the Sweet 16.
It was a dominant performance for Craig Skinner's bunch after eking out a five-set comeback win over Dayton on Thursday evening. Whitney Billings (17 kills) and Ashley Frazier (14 kills) led the way for the UK attack, while Southeastern Conference Libero of the Year Stephanie Klefot's 17 digs gave her the UK single-season record.
Games in the Lexington Regional will take place on Friday and Saturday Dec. 9-10. UK's Sweet 16 game will take place on Friday at either 5 p.m. or 7 p.m.
