Mizzou Volleyball Upsets No. 17 Tennessee

The Missouri women's volleyball team faced match point, down 2-0 and 20-15 in the third game, and rallied to win 3-2 (20-25, 14-25, 27-25, 25-21, 15-9) over 17th-ranked Tennessee Thursday.

It was the first time the Tigers overcame a two-game deficit to win a match since 2009.

"After the second set, it was clear that we were pretty frustrated, but the effort and resiliency that they showed after intermission was great to see," Tigers coach Wayne Kreklow said. It was Missouri's first SEC win in school history. The Tigers move to 9-2 overall.

Junior Lisa Henning led the Tigers with a match-high 26 kills while hitting .292, along with 11 digs to post her second double-double of the season.

Junior Taylor Simpson had 10 kills while hitting .265 with four blocks.

Junior setter Molly Krehklow had 52 assists and 16 digs in the match.

The Tigers next face Ole Miss at 1:30 p.m. CT Sept. 16.
