“Our girls had a great time as UK beat South Carolina 3-0,” Maynard commented. “It was a good trip for everyone.”
Kentucky also enjoyed the home match. The host Wildcats rolled to the 3-0 victory, winning rather easily over the Gamecocks.
Wildcat outside hitter Melissa Popp had 14 kills and was named UK's Star of the Game. The match was televised live on SEC TV.
The Wildcats used a commanding blocking attack in the 3-0 (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) win over South Carolina in Memorial Coliseum.
The Wildcats improved to 11-5 overall and 4-4 in Southeastern Conference play with their fifth consecutive victory over the Gamecocks. South Carolina dropped to 10-9 overall and 3-5 in league play.
