OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss volleyball team got double-digit kill performances from Kara Morgan and Allegra Wells, but it wasn’t enough to top Missouri (10-2, 2-0 SEC), as the Rebels (6-5, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) fell on the road 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-18).

Morgan, a junior outside hitter for the Rebels, had 11 kills, including five in the final set of the match. Wells, the Rebels’ right side hitter, was close behind Morgan with 10 kills of her own.

“We had a good match out of Allegra and Kara today, but we need to keep our middles involved more,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “This is part of playing on the road and playing in the SEC in front of a large crowd. We will learn from this and we look forward to getting back home and playing in front of our home crowd Friday night.”

Ole Miss lost the first set 25-17, after the Missouri Tigers took a 3-2 lead and never looked back. Senior setter Amanda Philpot led the Rebels in the opening set with four kills and seven assists.

Ole Miss fell 25-19 in the second set, but got big performances from Philpot, who had 10 assists, and Wells, who had five kills. The Rebels lost the third and final set by a count of 25-18.

Philpot facilitated the Ole Miss attack with 27 assists, six kills and six digs. Defensively, senior libero Ashley Veach had a dozen digs.

Ole Miss will face Mississippi State (4-7, 0-2 SEC) Friday at the Gillom Sports Center at 7:00 p.m. CT. The Rebels are 10-10 against their in-state rival in the Getzin era, and are 3-1 against the Bulldogs in the last two seasons.
