Women's Volleyball: Marquette 3, Seton Hall 2

Maggie Casey/MarquetteImages.com

The Golden Eagles had to go to five sets to defeat the Pirates and stay unbeaten in the Big East.

After both teams starting out hitting over .400 in the first set, it looked like it could be a barn burner in South Orange yesterday afternoon. While both Marquette and Seton Hall cooled off, only Seton Hall went ice cold as Marquette picked up a 3-2 (20-25, 25-16, 25-22, 23-25, 15-11) win. The Golden Eagles keep their spot as the only undefeated team in the Big East, while the Pirates fall to 3-4 in league play.

Seton Hall went from hitting .483 in the first set to not managing to hit better than .190 in any of the other four sets. Marquette was only incrementally better by only dropping from .400 in the first set to no worse than .190. Unfortunately, they picked the fourth set to hit .190, allowing Seton Hall to hang around long enough to force a fifth set.

Lindsay Gosh and Elizabeth Koberstein both had double-doubles for the Golden Eagles, although they took different routes. Gosh had a team high 19 kills to go with 11 digs, while Koberstein paired 11 digs with 53 assists. Hannah Hugeback led the Pirates with 17 kills.

Up Next: Marquette hooks it up with Rutgers this afternoon at 1pm Central.
