Box Score

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Ole Miss couldn’t find its groove Friday evening in front of a boisterous crowd at Memorial Coliseum in Lexington, Ky., and lost 3-0 (25-13, 25-16, 25-8) to No. 19 Kentucky.

Sophomore middle blocker Nakeyta Clair had a team-high seven kills, while senior outside hitter Kara Morgan logged 11 digs, her highest total since Aug. 31 when she had 17 digs in a five-set match against Maryland. Freshman setter Aubrey Edie passed out 15 assists.

“We ran into a real tough Kentucky team tonight and we have to play better,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “We need to buckle down now and rebound with another tough match ahead of us Sunday at Georgia.”

Ole Miss (10-6, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) dropped the first set by a score of 25-13. Clair had a team-high four kills on four attempts in the opening game, and Edie passed out a dozen assists for the Rebels. Morgan and junior Cara Fisher each had five digs for Ole Miss.

After falling behind by three points early at 4-7 in the second set, Ole Miss went on a 3-0 run to tie the set at 7 points apiece. Kentucky (11-3, 3-0 SEC) regained the lead with a 7-1 run following the Rebels’ surge to take a 14-8 lead. Ole Miss didn’t back down in the set and cut its deficit in half with a 3-0 run which prompted the Wildcats to call timeout. Ole Miss later cut its deficit to two points at 16-18, but could get no closer as Kentucky closed the set on a 7-0 run to win 25-18. Edie led Ole Miss with three kills in the second set, while Morgan and sophomore Evan St. Laurent each had four digs.

The Rebels fell behind early in the third set and couldn’t get back on track, dropping the game 25-8. Clair added three more kills to her team-high total in the final set.

Ole Miss now travels south to Athens, Ga., to take on the Georgia Bulldogs (12-3, 2-1 SEC) on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. CT. Georgia defeated Tennessee on Friday evening by a 3-0 (25-21, 25-16, 25-23) count.
