Louisville, Ky. - The Georgetown University volleyball team lost in three sets to No. 12 Louisville (23-3, 12-1 BIG EAST) Sunday afternoon at the KFC Yum! Center, by set scores of 10-25, 18-25, and 12-25. The Hoyas fall to 7-18 overall and 1-12 in conference play, with two matches remaining on the regular season schedule.
The Hoyas hung around as long as they could in the first set, but were unable slow down the talented Cardinals squad. After a 3-3 tie, Louisville would take the lead and continue to extend it en route to the 15 point win and 1-0 lead.
GU played well in the second set. Elizabeth Riggins (Mission Viejo, Calif./Santa Margarita) and Brooke Bachesta(Sammamish, Wash./Eastside Catholic) kept the Hoyas afloat, recording six and five kills in the set respectively. They each finished with team-highs of eight for the match. Bachesta hit .421 and Riggins hit .318. Tied at 13, Louisville ran off six straight points and swung momentum heavily in their favor before taking the 2-0 lead.
Louisville entered the third set confident and eager to close out the match in a sweep. They played efficient volleyball the entire afternoon and quickly erased any doubt about the third set's outcome, winning by a margin of 13.
"U of L has a great environment with fans who want to see good volleyball," said Head Coach Arlisa Williams. "We had an opportunity to leave it all out there, but we didn't."
Georgetown kills leader Alex Johnson(Tampa, Fla./Plant) did not play for the second match in a row.
Last year's BIG EAST Player of the Year and 3rd team AVCA All-American, Lola Arslanbekova, was unstoppable this afternoon for the Cardinals. She tallied a match-high 21 kills, including 10 in the first set, with a .459 hitting percentage. She added nine digs and three blocks as well. Caitlin Welch's 11 digs led all players.
The Cardinals out-hit GU, registering a .430 team hitting percentage to GU's .153. The Hoyas did out-block U of L five to four, but trailed in the dig, error, and serve categories.
"Now it's about taking care of our 900 square feet and getting ready for UConn."
The Blue & Gray return to McDonough Arena Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 11:30 a.m., where they will host conference opponent Connecticut in the last home match of the season.
