The Oregon Volleyball Team was defeated by USC Friday night at Matthew Knight Arena, by a score of 3-1. Both teams struggled with mental errors during the match, which lead to a back and forth affair. Freshmen standout Ronika Stone and sophomore Taylor Agost lead the offensive charge for the Ducks, and Khalia Lanier lead the way for USC. Oregon finished the home stand 1-3, and will look to turn it around next Friday, where they will take on Utah in Salt Lake City.
The #20 UCLA Bruins’ defense lived up to its reputation on Wednesday holding the #16 Ducks to a .192 hitting percentage. Despite the Ducks totaling 69 kills as a team, UCLA had all the answers to make the Ducks’ attack appear discombobulated. Oregon could not get on any of the attacking runs that have made them successful earlier in the year. Jim Moore and his squad will look redeem themselves against the USC Trojans on Friday night at Matthew Knight Arena.
