MARQUETTE VOLLEYBALL (10-4, 3-0 BIG EAST)
MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University women’s volleyball team hosts Loyola University Chicago in its final non-conference match at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at the Al McGuire Center.
The Golden Eagles (10-4) rallied from a first set loss to top Villanova in four sets on Saturday, Oct. 5 and remain the lone undefeated team in BIG EAST Conference action at 3-0.
Marquette also picked up a sweep over Georgetown on Friday and was led in both matches by freshman outside hitter Autumn Bailey, who notched 12 kills against the Hoyas and 15 kills at Villanova. The combination of Bailey and junior right-side hitter Lindsey Gosh proved to be too much for both teams from the service line as Bailey tallied a career-high five aces at Georgetown and Gosh logged four in each match.
A free, live video stream will be available through GoMarquette.com with Eric Brooks (play-by-play) and Armen Saryan (analyst) on the call, while live statistics can be accessed via GameTracker.
