OSU Volleyball Downed In Three By Arizona
Written by Hank Hager    Wednesday, 06 November 2013 16:41   

CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State volleyball team dropped a three-set decision to Arizona Sunday afternoon at Gill Coliseum. Set scores were 22-25, 17-25 and 19-25.

 

“The big difference today is that we did not play defense (well),” Oregon State head coach Taras Liskevych said. “We didn’t dig enough balls. We also made a lot of unforced errors. Consistency of play is so important in this conference.”

 

The Beavers were led offensively by Kelsey Zimmerman for the third consecutive match as the redshirt junior tallied eight kills to go along with two blocks. The Bend, Ore., native has 39 kills over her last three matches.

 

As a team, the Beavers (9-14 overall, 0-12 Pac-12 Conference) hit .124, recording 31 kills in 97 chances. Amanda Brown, who also had one block, was second to Zimmerman with six kills.

 

Arizona (16-8, 6-6), meanwhile, hit .291 with Madi Kingdon’s 16 kills pacing the Wildcats. Olivia Magill also had eight.

 

Unlike Satuday’s match which saw Oregon State and Arizona State record nearly 30 blocks, neither team stood out defensively on Sunday. OSU’s lone significant defensive number belonged to Becky Defoe, whose 13 digs pushes her to 1,901 for her career.

 

The team’s only senior, she needs to average 12.4 digs per match – or 4.2 per set, assuming a minimum of three per match – to become the 10th player in Pac-12 history to reach the 2,000-dig plateau.

 

Oregon State finished with six blocks as a team, with Zimmerman, Laura Schaudt, Arica Nassar and Haley Clarke all finishing with two.

 

Halli Amaro led Arizona with five blocks; the Wildcats totaled nine as a team.

 

The Beavers return to action Friday in a 6 p.m. PT match at UCLA. The match will not be televised. Make sure and visit osubeavers.com for live stats.
