Brooke Bachesta had a season-high 14 kills vs. Connecticut
Sept. 23, 2012
Storrs, Conn. - Despite out-digging the Huskies 73-63, the Georgetown University volleyball team (6-9, 0-2) suffered a heartbreaking four set loss Sunday afternoon at Connecticut (11-6, 2-0). The 25-17, 13-25, 25-21, 25-20 loss was the Hoyas' eighth in a row.
Junior outside hitter Brooke Bachesta (Sammamish, Wash./Eastside Catholic) racked up a season-high 14 kills, and added seven digs in the match.
After the loss to St. John's Friday, Georgetown has begun BIG EAST conference play at 0-2. Connecticut is 2-0 after defeating Villanova Friday.
In the opening set, UConn never trailed. Devon Maugle had five of her 13 kills in the set to lead the Huskies. They were out-blocked 5-1.
The second set was almost a mirror image of the first, with Georgetown taking control early and never trailing. They jumped out to a 7-1 lead and dominated in the 25-13 set win. Bachesta was instrumental, with seven kills and two blocks to propel Georgetown to the set victory.
Sets three and four were the most competitive of the match, featuring several ties and lead changes. GU had an early 6-2 lead in set three, but UConn responded with a 7-0 run and it was close the rest of the way.
"In games three and four, we couldn't quite sustain the level of play that we had in game two," Head Coach Arlisa Williams said.
Sophomore outside hitter Alex Johnson (Tampa, Fla./Plant) put forth a strong effort, with eight of her match-high 19 kills coming in the third, and 18 digs for the match. However, it wasn't enough to overcome the UConn.
"They worked hard. They all want it, but we're just coming up short. We're going to get this figured out in practice" said Williams. "The pieces are there. We just need to put them all together at the same time."
Mattison Quayle had a double-double with 13 kills and 13 digs for Connecticut. She was one of three Huskies with double digit digs.
The Blue & Gray are back in action at home for a pair of BIG EAST matches next weekend. They will host Seton Hall Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. and Rutgers Sunday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m.
