Volleyball: #11 Louisville 3, Marquette 0

The Cardinals complete the season sweep of the Golden Eagles with, appropriately, a straight sets sweep.

Louisville jumped out to an 11-5 lead in the first set, which pretty much set the tone for the rest of the match. While Marquette was able to rally back to only suffer a 3 point loss in the opening set, they weren't as lucky in the next two sets, as the Cardinals won 25-16 and 25-18 to sweep Marquette.

The loss means Marquette will need to defeat Notre Dame on Sunday and hope that Cincinnati can defeat Louisville for the Golden Eagles to have a chance at tying for the regular season Big East title. That would cause a three way tie, as Notre Dame beat Cincinnati yesterday. In that situation, Notre Dame, Louisville, and Marquette would all be 13-2. Louisville would end up as the #1 seed in the Big East tournament, followed by Marquette and then Notre Dame.

Holly Mertens led what offense Marquette was able to get going with 13 kills. Both Mertens and Erin Lehman were able to hit over .320 for the match, but they were the only Golden Eagles to break even .235. Meanwhile, Hannah Kvittle was the only Cardinal with at least one attack who hit less than .300, and she only didn't successfully register a kill on her lone attack of the match.

Lola Arslanbekova led the Cardinals on offense with 15 kills.

Julie Jeziorowski Digs Watch: 1,531, 36 short of the all time digs record.

Up Next: Notre Dame comes to the Al McGuire Center tomorrow at 1pm. It will be Senior Day, honoring Danielle Carlson, Carol Henney, Kelsey Mattai, Holly Mertens, and manager Keren Nass. You'll notice that this match fits nicely in right before the men's basketball season opener against Colgate starting at 3:30pm at the Bradley Center.
