Volleyball’s Matches vs. Ole Miss Cancelled

BATON ROUGE – Volleyball matches between Ole Miss and LSU, scheduled to be played November 24 and 25 in Baton Rouge, have been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test and subsequent quarantine of student-athletes among the LSU program.  

The action is consistent with COVID-19 management requirements developed by the SEC’s Medical Guidance Task Force.

The opportunity to reschedule the matches will be evaluated in the Spring.

This officially ends the Tigers’ Fall schedule where they finished 3-3. Taylor Bannister led the SEC with 4.70 kills per set and 0.61 aces per set. Bannister was the beneficiary of many of Karli Rose’s sets who averaged 9.48 assists per set for the seventh highest average in the league.

LSU shined on defense and had the second most digs per set in the league, averaging 1.65, just behind Arkansas. The Tigers were able to limit opponents to hitting just .204 against them for the fourth lowest opponent hitting percentage in the league.
