GU dropped a 3-1 match to Villanova Saturday, bringing the current losing streak to 11. After Brooke Bachesta'sfive second set kills sparked the Hoyas to win the second, Georgetown couldn't sustain their high level of play throughout the match and lost in four sets.
Senior middle blocker Lindsay Wise (Raleigh, N.C./Raleigh Charter) hit a team-high .333 with 10 kills. Elizabeth Riggins(Mission Viejo, Calif./Santa Margarita) had one of her best performances of the year, racking up seven kills.
Pittsburgh (11-9, 2-4) stopped a three-game skid and went 1-1 on the road last weekend, losing to BIG EAST leader Marquette 3-1 Friday but defeating Syracuse in a sweep on Sunday. The Blue & Gray have dropped the previous three meetings, including a 3-1 loss in last season's matchup at McDonough Arena.
Panthers junior Monica Wignot was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for the week of Oct. 8. Wignot registered 3.86 kills per set with a .308 hitting percentage in the two matches. She totaled 15 kills versus Marquette and 12 against Syracuse.
South Florida (10-9, 2-4) dropped a pair of tough five-setters last weekend at Syracuse Friday and at Marquette Sunday. USF and Connecticut are the only two schools Georgetown plays twice this year, as the Hoyas will travel to Tampa, Fla. once again on Nov. 11 for their final regular season contest. The Hoyas have lost seven in a row to USF and have not beaten the Bulls since they joined the BIG EAST conference in 2005. They were swept 3-0 in their 2012 match in Tampa.
The Bulls' were led by Erin Fairs' 17 kills on .308 hitting versus Syracuse. Kayla Walton hit .429 with 16 kills against Marquette. Claudia Cabrera had 19 kills in each match.
