No. 2 Pitt Volleyball Handles Clemson in Another Straight-Set Sweep

Published

on

If the No. 2 Pitt Panthers are preparing for a match, you better have a handful of brooms at your disposal ready to go.

The Panthers (15-0, 5-0 ACC) handled Clemson (10-6, 2-3) at the Fitzgerald Field House Friday Night, winning the match in three sets by a wider margin each set.

Set number one was the most contested of the three, with the Blue and Gold off to a slow start and trailing early on, but fought back to win 25-21.

The Panthers also trailed during the middle portion of the second set, but led by veterans Kayla Lund and Chinaza Ndee, Pitt finished on a 17-5 run to earn a 25-18 victory going into the third set.

Pitt held control of set three in the second half, never allowing the Tigers an opportunity to feel they had a chance to come back and take a set, falling 25-17 on the road.

The sweep marks Pitt’s fourth in a row and has won a remarkable 30 of its last 32 sets.

Lund and Ndee recorded 11 kills apiece and Leketor Member-Meneh added 9 kills and a team-high 11 digs as well. 

Pitt returns to the court Sunday with it’s 4-0 record against ranked opponents on the line facing No. 18 Georgia Tech at 1 p.m.
