Oregon Volleyball Falls To Washington State
Nov. 10, 2000
The University of Oregon volleyball team fell 15-10, 15-11, 15-4 to Washington State before 832 fans at McArthur Court Friday. Oregon is 10-15 overall, 2-14 Pac-10.
'Our system wasn't as difficult for them as their system was for us,' head coach Carl Ferreira said. 'We could not match their style of play long enough and they were able to adjust.'
Oregon was led by senior Halie Mazza's nine kills, 13 digs and .316 hitting percentage. Junior Monique Tobbagi also had nine kills and added six digs. Freshman Lindsay Murphy had seven kills and seven digs.
Washington State was led by Chelsie Schafer and LaToya Harris, who had 13 kills each. The Cougars outkilled (50-36) and outblocked (7-5) Oregon, but the Ducks had the edge in digs, 49-39.
It was the last home match of the season for Oregon and the last match at McArthur Court for Mazza and fellow senior Amy Banducci. Both were recognized prior to the match - Mazza is Oregon's leader in blocks (83) and hitting percentage (.300) and Banducci is seventh on the Pac-10 active career leader list with 865 digs.
'Amy is not a quitter and she's an integral part of what we do,' Ferreira said. 'She brings leadership, competitiveness and determination to the team.'
