Jayhawk Volleyball Concludes Regular Season at Oklahoma
Nov. 26, 2010
LAWRENCE, Kan. –
Kansas volleyball (16-14, 7-12 Big 12) will conclude its 2010 regular season at Oklahoma (21-9, 13-6 Big 12) on Saturday, Nov. 27. The match, originally scheduled for 6:30 p.m., has been moved to a 3 p.m. start time.
In her final year with the Jayhawks, senior Karina Garlington paces the team with 3.49 kills per set and needs just 10 more kills to log the program’s second-most kills in a career. Ten more tallies would also give her the 10th-best single-season mark in KU history.
Also cracking into the record books is freshman libero Brianne Riley, who already owns the 10th-best single-season digs mark at Kansas. She anchors the KU defense averaging a team-best 4.07 digs per set.
Fellow senior Jenna Kaiser has provided an offensive spark down the final stretch of the season as she leads the team with 3.48 kps during the last five matches. She receives help at the net from redshirt freshman Caroline Jarmoc, who is blocking just under a ball per set and is coming off her second 30-dig performance in the last four matches.
A win in Saturday’s contest would give the Jayhawks their most victories since 2004. KU, which is already eligible for the NCAA Tournament with a better-than .500 record, will find out its postseason fate on Sunday, Nov. 28 during the selection show set to air at 2 p.m. Central.
