Box Score

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The No. 20 South Carolina volleyball team swept the Ole Miss Rebels 3-0 in front of 780 fans as the Carolina faithful honored the team’s six seniors Friday night. Niece Curry and Cally Plummer led the Gamecocks with 14 kills apiece while Plummer recorded five service aces for South Carolina. Game scores were 30-16, 30-22, and 30-17.

South Carolina held the Rebels’ hitting to .106 while the Gamecocks hit .321. Curry also led the Gamecocks in hitting percentage, hitting .591 on the night. South Carolina will take on Mississippi State Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in their final regular season home match of the 2002 season. That match is Family Day where all children get into the match for free.

“This was fun for our seniors,” commented Carolina Head Coach Kim Christopher. “We knew Joe [Getzin]’s team would play hard. He is all about defense and they gave us a good fight. He has done a great job out there so far.”

South Carolina came out firing in game one, holding three Ole Miss players to negative hitting percentages and three Rebels to hitting percentages of .000. The score was knotted at six when Cally Plummer helped break the game open with four straight service aces. All four of those aces had an Ole Miss reception error from Karla Zschau. Ole Miss hit -.026 in game won and Carolina cruised to an easy win, 30-16.

Game two proved to be more difficult as the pesky Rebels refused to go away. Ole Miss’ hitting vastly improved to .244 in game two while South Carolina hit .300. Berna Dwyer led Carolina with two service aces early on while Curry notched seven aces, hitting .500.

The Gamecock defense came alive in game three as Ole Miss was only able to hit .075. Senior Nadia Sefferovich led the offense, registering four kills and hitting .375 while Ole Miss was unable to record a block. South Carolina easily cruised to a 30-17 game three win.
