CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va—The Virginia volleyball team fell to No. 13 North Carolina, 25-12, 26-24 and 25-19, before a capacity crowd of 836 at Memorial Gymnasium on Friday night (Oct. 18). With the loss, the Cavaliers fell to 10-9 on the season (3-4 ACC), while UNC improved to 17-1 (6-1 ACC).

In the third set, both teams hit well, with UVa earning a .414 hitting percentage to UNC’s .387, but North Carolina used four service aces to go on to a 25-19 win.
