No. 20 Wildcats Look to Rebound Against LSU
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The No. 20 Kentucky Wildcats are looking to rebound coming off of a discouraging loss to Texas A&M on Friday, as they are set to face the LSU Tigers on Sunday, Nov. 1 at 1:30 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.
Last time out, the Texas A&M Aggies rallied for a 3-1 (30-28, 14-25, 25-23, 26-24) win over Kentucky on Friday night in front of 1,638 fans on “Dig Pink” night in Memorial Coliseum. The win for the Aggies marked the first ever victory in five tries against Kentucky in Lexington in program history. UK had a valiant offensive effort with five players topping 10 or more kills on the night, but the Aggies were able to prevail with wins in the first, third and fourth sets.
Senior setter Morgan Bergren distributed the ball at an elite level with five Wildcats topping 10 or more kills and each player registering between 22 and 38 swings. The Muncie, Ind., native logged 49 assists on the night and will enter Sunday’s match needing just eight more assists to top 3,500 for her career.
