UCSB Sweeps UCR for 15th Big West Win

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Nov. 19, 2022)— The 15th Big West win of the season came across the board for the UCSB women's volleyball team (19-9, 15-3) Saturday night as the Gauchos swept UC Riverside (4-23, 2-16) on the road.

ON THE STAT SHEET

  • The Gauchos outhit the Highlanders .305 to .179 and led the match in every stat category with the exception of blocks.
  • Tallulah Froley led all players with 12 kills and did so on a potent 12-3-22 (.409) line.
  • Mehana Ma'a, who reached 1,000 career assists this past Thursday, added to her total with 21 assists and notched a double-double with 10 assists.
  • Michelle Ohwobete had an efficient 8-2-19 (.316) line, scooped up six digs, and was busy on the passing end collecting 25 serve receptions with just one error.
  • Macall Peed led the Gauchos with 13 digs and added four assists and a pair of aces.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Despite hitting just .032 in the first set, UCSB never trailed thanks in part to nine service errors by the Highlanders. After falling behind 15-11, UCR chipped away until it tied the frame up at 17-17, but the Gauchos were quick to respond closing it out on an 8-3 run.
  • UCSB went errorless in the second set posting a ridiculous 16-0-22 (.727) line as a team and never trailed or allowed the Highlanders to tie it jumping out to a 15-4 lead. The lead grew to as much at 14 at the final point as Froley went for five kills on six kills.
  • UCR responded in the third taking an early 6-3 lead which held until UCSB knotted it at 12-12. A 7-4 run by the Gauchos saw them take a late lead that they would hold for the rest of the final frame. Peed ended the match on an ace.
