Mizzou gets past Lady Vols

Tennessee fell three points short (one in the third, two in the fourth) in a hard fought match to Missouri 3-1 (18-25, 25-18, 26-24, 25-23). More details later tonight.

UPDATE: Tessa Grubbs paced the team with 15 kills. Addisyn Rowe had 12. Alyssa Andreno had a team leading 4 blocks and .545 hitting percentage. Madison Coulter dug up 23 balls. Sedona Hansen had 41 assists, 14 digs, and 3 aces.

Tennessee was down 8 points in the third set before storming back and eventually earning a set point.

Missouri came into the match with the second best hitting percentage in the nation. The Lady Vols held them to their second lowest average of the season in a win.

Sedona Hansen notched career double-double #60 in the match, just two off the UT rally-scoring era record.

Madison Coulter picked up 23 digs. She’s now had 14 matches in her career with 21 or more digs — 8 of which were this season. And she’s one of just three UT players all-time to have 12 matches with 23+ digs. (With some awards being announced next week maybe it’s time to start thinking about filling in the missing gap below?)
