LSU Volleyball is (1-1) in SEC Play and Looks to Battle Mississippi State at 5pm (CST)

Tonya Johnson and her LSU Volleyball squad opened up SEC play last week against nationally ranked Kentucky and lost (3-1) in what was a hard-fought match. They followed up that game with a match against Missouri on Friday in the PMAC and won the match by a score of (3-1).

One thing that stood out to me in this match was the defense of this squad. LSU held Missouri to a .135 hitting percentage with a season-high 12 blocks. The true freshman Jurnee Robinson led the team with 12 kills as usual while adding 16 total points as she continues the path to being All-SEC as a true freshman. She added two aces and 3 blocks. Keeping on pace with freshman, I have been highly impressed with the progress of Angie Lee over the season, and she is heating up in SEC play. Lee had a season-best 8 kills and finished second in blocks only to Anwusi with 5 on the night.

On to the pre-season All-SEC selections Anita Anwusi and Sanaa Dotson as they continue to shine as the lights get brighter. Anwusi had a team high 6 blocks and added 8 kills. While Sanna Dotson started the night out by registering her 1000th career kill on a night where she totaled 6 kills and 4 blocks. Setter Maddie Waak achieved her fourth double-double of the season with 32 assists and 17 digs.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs come in with an 8-5 overall record and (1-2) SEC record. The 3 players to watch out for are Karli Schmidt who leads the team in points (181.5) and kills (163), next is Sophie Agee who is 2nd in points (139.5) and is second in kills with (111) and leads the team with (18) Aces, and then Amina Shackleford who is 3rd in points with (116) and leads the team in blocks with (43).

Tune in today at 5 p.m. CT as the Tigers take on the Bulldogs in its first televised match this season on SEC Network.
