Stats

BATON ROUGE, La. - Kara Morgan and Amanda Philpot each recorded double-doubles, but the Ole Miss volleyball team fell 3-1 (21-25, 25-21, 22-25, 24-26) on the road to LSU on Sunday afternoon.

The Rebels (10-13, 4-10 Southeastern Conference) got 14 kills and 15 digs out of junior outside hitter Kara Morgan, and a season-high 52 assists and 12 digs from senior setter Amanda Philpot, but couldn't overcome the dynamic LSU attacking duo of Madie Jones and Desiree Elliott.

"I thought we played fairly well," Ole Miss head volleyball coach Joe Getzin said. "We're continuing to improve and I thought we built on Friday night. We just didn't make a couple plays at the end to take it to a fifth set."

Ole Miss freshman middle blocker Ty Laporte led the Rebels offensively with a team-high 16 kills, as four Rebels reached double figures in kills. Freshman middle blocker Nakeyta Clair was one of those four Rebels, as she finished with 14 kills and a season-high six block assists. Senior right side hitter Allegra Wells finished with 12 kills and four block assists. Senior libero Ashley Veach was a defensive stalwart for the Rebels, recording a team-high 21 digs.

The Rebels jumped out to a quick 6-2 lead in the opening set, but couldn't hold off the home-standing Tigers. Trailing by three points at 18-21, Ole Miss went on a 3-1 run to cut the deficit to one, but would get no closer as LSU scored the final four points of the set.

Ole Miss got off to a fast start again in the second set, jumping out to a 6-3 lead. After giving up the lead for the first time in the set at 10-11, the Rebels responded with a 5-1 run to take a 15-12 lead and prompt an LSU timeout. Ole Miss held on for the remainder of the set to tie the match at 1 set apiece with a 25-21 victory in set two.

It was LSU's turn to get the fast start in set three, as the Tigers came out of the gates on a 6-2 run that forced the Rebels into a timeout. Ole Miss found themselves down 10-15 midway through the third set, but fought back valiantly to tie the set at 22-22, but LSU would score the final three points to take a 2-1 lead in the match.

Junior outside hitter Kiley Sherman came in to start the fourth set and provided the Rebels with a spark, tallying five kills on 10 attempts. After coming out on a 9-4 run to start the fourth set, Ole Miss couldn't keep the momentum going, as LSU fought back to take the match's final frame 26-24 in a hard-fought set and match.

Ole Miss will return home this week with matches against Tennessee and Florida at the Gillom Sports Center. The rebels will face Tennessee on Friday at 7 p.m. CT, and the Gators on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. CT.
