Volleyball ends season with loss to Buffalo

The 2009 season came a sudden end in the first round of the Mid-American Conference Tournament for the Kent State volleyball team as the Golden Flashes lost a 2-1 lead at home and dropped a 3-2 decision to the University at Buffalo Bulls on Tuesday (11/17) evening at the M.A.C. Center. Buffalo defeated Kent State by scores of 15-25, 25-23, 23-25, 25-19 and 15-13.

KSU dominated the final statistics including outhitting the Bulls (61 kills to 48) and registering more than twice as many blocks (14.5 to 7). The Golden Flashes also topped the Bulls in service errors (16 to 7) which proved to be one of the keys to the Bulls winning for the second time in three meetings this season between the conference foes.

In defeat, Kent State (14-17 overall, 7-9 MAC) was led by freshman Meredith Paskert and seniors Arjola Prenga and Jenny Keck. Paskert had a team-high 17 kills with six digs and four block assists. Prenga notched 16 kills and had a team-leading 18 digs. Keck recorded her second triple-double in consecutive matches with 10 kills, 43 assists and 11 digs versus the Bulls. She also hit a team-high .471. Earlier this season, Keck became the first player in conference history to receive both the offensive and defensive MAC Player of the Week honors in the same season.
