Tennessee takes tourney title

201709-treiber-1UT won the Rocky Top Invitational after a five-set win vs Furman (20-25, 25-10, 22-25, 25-23, 15-7). More soon.

UPDATE: Lots of personal bests tonight. Breana Jeter had 9 kills and a career-high 7 digs. Alyssa Andreno had 8 kills and 8 blocks. Kanisha Jimenez had 8 kills, 8 blocks, 11 digs, and a career-high 5 aces. Erica Treiber had 7 kills and a career-high 10 blocks. Stephanie Buss put down a career-high 7 blocks. Sedona Hansen had 21 assists and 9 digs. Callie Williams put up 15 assists. And Brooke Schumacher dug up 14 balls.

Tennessee’s 16 hitting errors was the fewest in a five-set match in the rally-scoring era. Furman’s 41 were the fourth most by a UT opponent in that time. Tennessee had 19 team blocks, good for the 10th best since 2001.

This was the first five-set match in the rally-scoring era where no Tennessee player reached double-digit kills.

Andreno and Jeter were named to the All-Tournament Team while Treiber was named MVP.
