Vols fall short against Aggies

Tennessee seems to be playing their best games lately against tougher competition. The Vols were down two sets to zero against second place Texas A&M before roaring back and getting one point away from forcing a fifth set. In the end, the Aggies took the match 3-1 (25-19, 25-20, 16-25, 27-25).

Erica Treiber led the team with 10 kills, 7 blocks, and 2 aces. Raina Hembry had 9 kills and 6 blocks. Kanisha Jimenez had 9 kills and 10 digs. Tessa Grubbs had 9 kills. Kendra Turner had 7. Brooke Schumacher dug up 18 balls.

Sedona Hansen put up 43 assists, had 20 digs, and added in 4 blocks. She’s the first Vol since Kelsey Robinson in 2012 to notch 20+ in two different categories. No one since 2007 has done it with assists. It was just the 15th 20/20 performance of the rally-scoring era, and Hansen is just the 7th different person to do it in that time. Hansen also reached the 1,000 assists milestone for the year.

UT’s 6 service errors over 4 sets was their third best outing of the year. While Tennessee allowed the most total blocks from an opponent this year vs the Aggies (and the fourth highest since 2001), they did respond with their second highest blocking total of the season.
