KU volleyball cruised to a victory with a record-setting performance
The No. 20 Kansas Jayhawks volleyball team dominated St. Louis in a straight-set victory on Wednesday. Kansas improved to 24-6 on the seasons with the easy 25-16, 25-16, 25-12 victory.
The Jayhawks were led by junior libero Brianne Riley, who set the school's single-season digs record in the victory. Riley led the match with 18 digs. The total also brings Riley within 10 digs of the Kansas career record, which she could easily set this weekend. She was helpful in setting up her teammates all night, as Kansas put up a .244 hitting percentage.
Taylor Tolefree was the top hitter for Kansas, as she tallied eight kills and a .545 hitting percentage. Tolofree also tied for the match lead in blocks with three. Erin McNorton had a nice all-around effort, notching a double-double with 22 assists and 12 digs.
Kansas returns to the court for senior day against Texas Tech on Sunday at 1 p.m..
