Marquette Posts 3-1 Win Friday over Seton Hall
Oct. 23, 2015
MILWAUKEE - Reigning BIG EAST Conference Player of the Week Taylor Louis posted 23 kills and 12 digs to propel the Marquette University women's volleyball team past Seton Hall 3-1 (24-26, 25-19, 27-25, 25-14) on Friday evening at the Al McGuire Center.
MU started fast in the opening frame, but a late stanza lull gave the Pirates a 26-24 win as they hit .317 in the set. The Golden Eagles led by as many as four points midway through the frame and even held a 23-21 advantage on a Meghan Niemann kill. Junior Danielle Schroeder, who led SHU with 18 kills on the day, finished with five kills and no errors to lead the Pirates in the first.
Despite just one kill from Louis in the second frame, Marquette was able to pull away for a 25-19 win as it limited Seton Hall to a hitting mark of .042. The Golden Eagles broke free from a 9-9 tie with a 5-0 run, capped by consecutive blocks from Rosenthal, and held off the Pirates the rest of the way.
The Golden Eagles were able to fend off a pair of Seton Hall sent points in the third set to emerge with a 27-25 victory. Louis posted her highest set kill total with eight in the frame and tied the stanza 25-25 with her final kill before Joy Miley closed things out for MU.
In the final set, Marquette rolled to a 25-14 victory, led by seven kills from Louis and three apiece from Miley and Niemann.
The Golden Eagles return to action on Saturday, Oct. 24 when they welcome Villanova to the Al McGuire Center for a 6 p.m. Central time contest.
