The scores for the five games were 23-25, 23-25, 25-20, 25-21, 14-16. LSU volleyball is now 17-12 for the season and 14-16 in SEC play.
LSU almost battled back in the last game but Ole Miss came back and scored two points at the last minute to take the win and the series.
Cati Leak had 20 kills for the Tigers, a season high for Leak, who also had seven digs and five blocks.
Malorie Pardo had 55 assists and 12 digs and finished with her 18th double-double of the season.
Other key players for the Tigers were Briana Holman, Desiree Elliot, Katie Lindelow, Helen Boyle, and Haley Smith.
Head coach Fran Flory had this to say about the set, "We fell behind and got a chance to win after we fought our way back into the match. However, we didn’t have enough inside of us to finish for whatever reason. You have to credit Ole Miss. Those kids played harder than we did, they wanted to win more than we wanted to win and the bottom line is that what the scoreboard indicates at the end of the night.”
LSU volleyball will close out the end of regular season play Saturday night in the Maravich Center on the LSU campus against Alabama at 1:00 p.m. This will also be Senior Day for the Tigers. Fans are encouraged to come out and support the Tigers in their final game of the season. Admission is free.
