CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati volleyball team fell short against No. 11 University of Louisville 3-0 (25-18, 25-15, 26-24) on Sunday afternoon in Louisville, Ky.   Senior Jordanne Scott (Indianapolis, Ind./Lawrence North) recorded a match-high 15 kills and 12 digs for her third consecutive double-double. 

“The way we competed in the third set, we played some really great volleyball” said head coach Molly Alvey.  “The same has been true all season for us, once we can put together a full match, we are pretty dangerous.  The slate is clean for us now and we go into phase three.  W e have one last opportunity at the BIG EAST Championship.  I think Jrodanne played extremely well and both our middles, Emily and Me’Ashah did a nice job as well.”

The Bearcats (11-18, 9-6 BIG EAST) recorded 36 kills and a .235 hitting percentage in the match.  Senior Rachel Rohlfs (Cincinnati, Ohio/Grand Valley State) had 28 assists, junior Emily MacIntyre (Muncie, Ind./Yorktown) recorded 10 digs and senior Emily Hayden (Louisville, Ky./Assumption) registered both of the Bearcats’ two blocks. 

Louisville (25-3, 14-1 BIG EAST) finished the match with 48 kills and a .429 attacking clip.  The Cardinals were led by the 2011 BIG EAST Player of the Year and 2012 preseason BIG EAST Player of the Year Lola Arslanbekova who had 13 kills and seven digs. 


 

 

The Cardinals took an early 1-0 advantage after winning the first game 25-18.  The Bearcats used a Louisville attack error to get within one point at 6-5, but UofL responded with four consecutive points, including three kills, to take a 9-5 lead.  The Cardinal advantage grew to 22-14 before the Bearcats rallied with a kill and two Louisville errors to climb to within 22-17.  It would not be enough to overcome the deficit, however, as the Cardinals recorded a block to end the game 25-18.  Cincinnati received three kills apiece from Refenes and Nicholson and 10 assists from Rohlfs in the game. 

Louisville took a 2-0 match lead into intermission after a 25-15 victory in the second game.  The Bearcats used a three-point run to tie the set at 7-7, but would remain behind through the duration of the game.  With a 10-9 lead, Louisville conducted a five-point run to go up 15-9.  The lead grew to 20-11 following a 5-1 Cardinal run and a kill by Gwen Rucker gave Louisville the final margin of 25-15.  Scott recorded four kills and five digs in the set to lead the Bearcat effort. 

In the decisive third game, The Bearcats put up a strong fight, but ultimately fell 26-14 to end the match. Cincinnati went ahead 10-6 after a three-point run, including kills from Hayden and Scott and a block by Hayden.  The Cardinals came back with a three-point run of their own to tie the game at 13-13, and later took a 17-15 lead after another three-point run.  Cincinnati responded with three consecutive kills from Scott to take a 20-19 lead and force a Louisville timeout.  The Cardinals employed a 5-2 run to go ahead 24-22, but the Bearcats fought off two UofL match points to tie the game at 24-24.  The valiant UC effort in the third game fell just short as Louisville closed out the match with back-to-back kills, including the 13th kill of the match for Arslanbekova. 

Next up, the Bearcats will travel to Milwaukee, Wis., for the BIG EAST Championship.  Cincinnati has locked up the No. 5 seed at the tournament and will face No. 4 seed Connecticut on Fri., Nov. 16 in the first round.
