CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia volleyball dropped a four-set decision to Duke, 25-19, 24-26, 27-25, 25-15, Friday night (Oct. 19) at Memorial Gymnasium.
Virginia (6-15, 0-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) hit only .167 for the match, while Duke (12-10, 3-7 ACC) hit .253.
Freshman Natalie Bausback (Carlsbad, Calif.) led the Cavaliers with a season-high 20 kills, while classmate Kayla Sears (Moorpark, Calif.) and senior Jessica O’Shoney (Austin, Texas) added 12 kills each.
In the first set, UVa had an early 8-5 lead, but Duke used a 6-0 run to gain the lead and never looked back, 25-19.
The second set featured 16 ties and 10 lead changes, as the Cavaliers claimed the frame, 26-24. Bausback had seven kills with no errors, including the last two points.
The third set was just as close with the score being tied at 22-25 before Duke prevailed, 27-25, on a UVa hitting error and a Blue Devil block.
In the fourth set, the Blue Devils hit .333, while UVa hit only .070 in a 25-15 Duke win.
Megan Hendrickson hit .333 with 13 kills and one error to lead Duke.
