Nov. 15, 2002
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Outside hitter Alicia Robinson recorded a team-high 12 kills and middle blocker Emily Adams led with 10 blocks as the No. 2 USC women's volleyball team swept No. 19 UCLA (30-24, 30-21, 30-23) on Friday at Pauley Pavilion.
With the win, the Women of Troy secured all 10 women's volleyball points in the Lexus Gauntlet competition. USC also improves to 22-1 overall and 15-1 in the Pac-10, while UCLA falls to 15-12 overall, 8-8 in conference play.
The Women of Troy outhit the Bruins by a narrow .182-.176 margin in the first game, but USC took control of the match in the second and third games, thanks in part to the play of junior middle blocker Katie Olsovsky and senior opposite hitter Lauren Killian.
Killian led all players, hitting .583 for the match with seven kills and no errors. Olsovsky hit .467 to go with nine kills on the evening.
USC dominated in the second game, hitting a match-high .333 to counteract UCLA's .095 attack effort. The Bruins kept it close in the third game before the Women of Troy pulled away at the ending, utilizing a .311 to .170 hitting margin.
The Women of Troy return home next week for the final home matches of the regular season. USC hosts Arizona on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m. and Arizona State on Friday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. Both matches will be played at the Lyon Center. The USC-Arizona match will be televised by Fox Sports Net on a tape-delay basis.
