Virginia Uses Efficient Offense to Sweep Boston College, 3-0
Box Score Nov. 26, 2014
CHESNUT HILL, Mass.-The Virginia volleyball team posted its best offensive match in four years in a sweep of Boston College, 25-13, 25-20 and 25-18, Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 26). The Cavaliers improved to 17-13 (10-7 ACC) on the season, while the Eagles fell to 11-17 (6-11 ACC).
The Cavaliers hit .453 with a total of 41 kills against only two hitting errors for the match. The .453 hitting percentage is the team’s highest since .473 against George Mason on Sept. 18, 2010 and ranks as the third-highest in the rally-scoring era (since 2001). Virginia held the Eagles to a .147 hitting percentage.
“We played extremely clean today,” UVa head coach Dennis Hohenshelt said. “Having only two errors the entire match is pretty impressive and I was really impressed that we had none over the last two sets. Now we have one more important match to get this week when we play Syracuse on Friday.”
Junior Natalie Bausback (Carlsbad, Calif.) led the Cavaliers with 11 kills and no errors on 15 attempts. Bausback hit .733, which ranks as the eighth-highest single-match hitting percentage in school history and the third-highest in the rally-scoring era (minimum 10 attempts).
Julia Topor led BC with eight kills.
The Cavaliers conclude the regular season Friday evening at Syracuse at 7 p.m.
