Virginia (15-10, 7-7 ACC) returns home after losses at Miami and No. 17 Florida State last weekend. Junior Haley Kole (Tallahassee, Fla.) led the team with 24 kills in the two matches. The Cavaliers are 7-2 at home on the season and 4-2 inside Memorial Gymnasium in ACC play.
Against Florida State, senior Natalie Bausback (Carlsbad, Calif.) eclipsed the 1,000-career kills mark and now has 1,003 total. Kole is approaching the milestone with 964 kills. With 34 more kills, she would be the second player to reach 1,000 kills the season. The last time UVA had two players do that in the same season was when Sarah Kirkwood and Lindsay Osco did so in 2005.
Clemson (5-21, 1-14 ACC) is coming off its first win in conference action, topping Georgia Tech, 3-1, on Wednesday night. Leah Perri, who ranks eighth in the ACC with 3.64 kills per set, leads the Tigers offensively and Keelie Arneson is pacing the defense with 4.90 digs per set, which is second among the league.
Georgia Tech (17-10, 8-7 ACC) had moved up the ACC standings with three straight wins before falling to Clemson on Wednesday night. Teegan Van Gunst is leading the Yellow Jacket offense with 3.97 kills per set to rank third in the ACC, while London Ackermann is averaging 4.35 digs per set and Sydney Wilson leads at the net with 1.12 blocks per set.
The Cavaliers will close out their home matches next weekend with NC State on Nov. 20 and North Carolina on Nov. 21.
