The No. 11 Florida Gators won their 10th-straight match with a three-set victory over the LSU Tigers (25-20, 25-19, 25-18) at Exactech Arena Friday evening.

Florida is now 12-1 in the SEC with five games remaining.

Individual Performances

Paige Hammons and Thayer Hall led the way for the Gators with 13 kills each. Holly Carlton was the only other Gator to reach double digits on the night with 11.

SEC Setter of the Week Marlie Monserez continued her streak of hot performances with another 41 assists against the Tigers.

Florida’s offense was reaching peak-performance levels during the match. As a squad, the Gators hit .394. Five individual Gators hit for at least .400, including Monserez (.667 | 2-0-3), Carlton (.500 | 11-3-16), Hammons (.440 | 13-2-25), Rachael Kramer (.400 | 9-1-20) and Lauren Dooley (.400 | 3-1-5).

Carlton and Dooley played some great defense at the net with five and four blocks respectively. Allie Gregory tallied 12 digs to lead the match.

Team Stats

As is probably expected with a sweep, the winning team outperformed the losing team in every category.

The Gators led LSU in kills (50-28), assists (46-26), aces (7-4), blocks (6-5) and digs (35-25).

What’s Next?

The Gators have just five games remaining in the regular season. This Sunday, Florida has a rematch with No. 17 Kentucky. Earlier this season, the Wildcats got the win at home in a five-set thriller. First serve is set for 3 p.m.
