CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--
The Virginia volleyball team dropped a three-set match to Miami, 25-22, 25-19, 27-25, Friday night (Sept. 21) at Memorial Gymnasium.

Virginia (5-6, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) was out hit by the Hurricanes, .296 to .130 and Miami led in blocks, 13.5-5.

Freshman Natalie Bausback (Carlsbad, Calif.) led the Cavaliers with a season-high .429 hitting percentage with 12 kills and no errors, while senior Jessica O'Shoney (Austin, Texas) had seven kills.

In a close first set tied at 22, the Hurricanes (10-2, 2-0 ACC) earned three points in a row, two off UVa errors, to win the set, 25-22.

Miami hit .414 and held Virginia to a .108 hitting percentage on the way to a 25-19 second set victory.

In the third set, the Hurricanes led 24-20, but Virginia fought back with a kill by O'Shoney and two straight blocks. An attack error tied the set at 24 and UVa took the lead on a sophomore Tori Janowski (Sterling, Va.) service ace, 25-24. The Hurricanes won the next three points, including a block and a kill to finish off the match, 27-25.

O'Shoney passed the 350 career block mark in the third set. She now has 351 and is tied for eighth all-time in UVa history.
