Box Score

OXFORD, Miss. – A team-high 13 kills from Nakeyta Clair and 33 assists from Aubrey Edie led the Ole Miss volleyball team (9-3) to a 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-18) victory over Chattanooga (1-14) on Saturday morning at the Gillom Sports Center. The win moves the Rebels to 2-0 in the Rebel Classic.

“I saw some scrappy play from some of our players,” Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin said. “We keep talking about our side of the net and cleaning it up, and we’re putting up some pretty good numbers.”

One match after recording a dozen kills against just one error, Clair had 13 kills against the Mocs while committing just three attacking errors for a .556 hitting percentage. Facilitating the offense was Edie, who passed out 33 assists in three sets. Edie came close to a double-double with nine digs to go with her assist total.

“Aubrey is gaining confidence each match she plays in,” Getzin said. “It’s great to see. We’ve had great set distribution.”

The Rebels hit at a .375 clip in the first set and took a 1-0 lead in the match with a 25-18 win. Ole Miss opened the set on a 4-0 run and led 10-5 before Chattanooga used its first timeout. Clair and junior Marie-Pierre Bakima combined for eight kills on eight attempts, and Edie had 13 assists, six digs and a pair of kills.

After falling behind 5-0 to open the second set, Ole Miss rallied back to tie the match at 10 and finally took its first lead at 13-12. The match remained tight throughout the remainder of the set, but Ole Miss never relinquished the lead again en route to winning 25-20.

In the third and final set, Ole Miss got four kills each from Clair, Bakima, freshman Melanie Crow and freshman Margaret Eggert, who finished with four kills on five attacks while coming off the bench. With Ole Miss leading by three points at 14-11, the Rebels went on a 10-4 run to take a 24-15 lead, and ended up sealing the match with a 25-18 win.

The Rebels play again at 7 CT tonight against Louisiana-Lafayette to close out play at the Rebel Classic.

“Big match tonight against Louisiana-Lafayette,” Getzin said. “They’re a good team that runs a very fast system so we’ll have to play our A-game.”
