This evening, the UCLA women’s volleyball team starts play in the Long Beach State Mizuno Classic when the Bruins face the Georgia Bulldogs at 6 pm PT.
Last Time Out
UCLA last played on Saturday when the team was swept by #2 Nebraska, 12-25, 16-25, 19-25. This was a match which Nebraska thoroughly dominated. For the second match in a row, the Bruins struggled with a hitting percentage under .100 for the match. UCLA’s best set was the second when they hit .143, which is still dismal, especially when you consider that Nebraska’s lowest set hitting percentage was .273 in the first.
Mac May was the only Bruin in double figures in kills with 12 while Devon Chang added 17 assists.
Tonight’s opponent is the Georgia Bulldogs. Last weekend, the Bulldogs swept Wofford, took five sets to top Kennesaw State and were swept by Clemson. The Bulldogs enter tonight’s match with a .258 hitting percentage. That might make this a tough match for the Bruins who are only hitting .079 so far.
Georgia is also averaging 12.18 kills per set while UCLA is averaging just 9.5 kills per set. Overall, that seems to make tonight’s matchup a very tough one.
It also means that Michael Sealy may not get his 200th career win this weekend.
