For the second time this season, Oregon came back to win the match after losing the first set. Last time, it was September 22nd as the Ducks took town Washington State in five sets, except Sunday afternoon it only took four stets for the #16 Oregon Ducks to take down #22 UCLA, 21-25, 25-14, 25-16, 27-25. Sunday afternoon’s performance required four Oregon players to record double doubles- the first time this season. Oregon held the Bruins to a .077 hitting percentage and out-killed the Bruins 56-41. UO outscored the Bruins 50-30 in sets two and three, largely due to excellent blocking. The Ducks had 15 total team blocks compared to UCLA’s seven. Oregon will have to regroup quickly as they travel to take on the Bay Area schools, beginning Thursday at 8 pm with a bout with the Pac 12’s best Stanford Cardinal.
