The LSU volleyball team looks to complete a perfect four-match home swing Sunday against Ole Miss.
First serve is set for 1 p.m. and the match will be televised by CST with Lyn Rollins and Kent Lowe on the call.
LSU (14-6, 7-3 Southeastern Conference), leaders of the SEC Western Division at the halfway point of the league schedule, has won three consecutive decisions. Last time out, the Tigers claimed their seventh sweep of the season over Alabama and powered home a .468 team hitting percentage.
Ole Miss (5-14, 1-10) has dropped nine consecutive decisions, but took SEC co-leader Tennessee to five sets two weeks ago in Knoxville.
Regina Thomas is one of three players to average more than 2.00 kills per set. She headlines the SEC with a .378 hitting clip and posted an SEC-leading 1.07 blocks per set. On the back row, Morgan Springer has garnered 4.08 digs per set, the fourth-highest average in the SEC.
LSU and Ole Miss went the distance in Oxford earlier this season. The Tigers used a career-best 60 assists from Malorie Pardo and ripped 12 kills on a .556 hitting ratio in the deciding frame.
“LSU and Ole Miss is always a tough, grind-it-out style of match,” LSU coach Fran Flory said in a university news release. “It doesn’t matter what the records are going in. Certainly, Ole Miss starting the second half of SEC play is probably going to be a dangerous team in our league.
“They have a bunch of great athletes. When they get going, they are going to be really hard to defend and really hard to beat. We have to be prepared. LSU and Ole Miss is a fun rivalry, and Sunday will be another exciting chapter.”
