SEATTLE, Wash. – Even with Sarah Reaves’ fifth double-double on the season, the effort wasn’t enough as the Sun Devil Volleyball team fell 25-23, 25-16 and 25-22 to the third-ranked Washington Huskies Friday night as ASU falls to 11-4 overall and 1-2 in Pac-10 play as the Huskies improved to 13-0 overall and 3-0 in Pac-10 play.

Round one saw the Sun Devils keep it neck-and-neck with the Huskies, hitting .140 to UW’s .167 with Sarah Reaves and Sofie Schlagintweit leading the attack with three kills apiece, but UW’s Kindra Carlson and Bianca Rowland helped the Huskies squeak out a 25-23 win with four kills apiece to take the lead.

The second set saw ASU flatline a bit, hitting only .111, even as Reaves posted six kills. The UW D held tough with five blocks in the set while the offense got the job done with a .303 attack percentage with 12 kills, six from Kindra Carlson. ASU’s seven attack errors and five receiving errors cost them as well, with UW taking a 25-16 win for a 2-0 lead going into the break.

Six more kills from Sarah Reaves in the third set as ASU forced 11 tie scores and five lead changes to give UW a run for their money, but falling just unable to pull the trigger on a W for the Sun Devils as UW hit .250 in the set to snake another one by the Maroon & Gold 25-22.

Head Coach Jason Watson on the match said, “I thought we played well. The challenge now is learning to play well for longer periods of time, especially against such tough competition in the Pac-10.”

Up next the Sun Devils travel to Pullman, where they’ll face Washington State tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
