Box Score

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The 20th-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team saw their season come to an end Saturday evening with a 3-1 loss to No. 4 UCLA in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

With the 16-25, 15-25, 25-22, 17-25 loss, the Toreros conclude their record setting season with an overall record of 28-5, which is the best overall record in program history. With the win, UCLA improves to 26-6 overall and advance on to the Sweet 16 and will face Penn State.

Chloe Ferrari led the team with 12 kills, while hitting for a .333 clip. Sandra Lozic had nine kills and 12 digs, while Rachel Alvey recorded 32 assists and Kandiss Anderson had 27 digs.

In the first set, the Bruins grabbed the early momentum with a 3-1 run to open up the match. USD began to trade point-for-point with the Bruins, and UCLA eventually took an 11-5 lead. But San Diego rallied back and went on a 5-0 run to pull back to within one at 11-10, but that is as close as they would get. UCLA then slowly began to open up the gap and went on to capture the first set 25-16.

In the second set, the Toreros came out on fire as they opened the frame with a 5-2 run. After holding on and taking a 7-4 lead, the Bruins then got hot and went on a 10-0 run to grab a 14-7 lead and grab all the momentum. USD kept fighting, but just could not overcome this deficit and fell behind 2-0 with a 25-15 loss.

In the third set, the Bruins grabbed the early momentum as they raced out to a 3-1 lead. San Diego refused to go away as they began to slowly chip away at the lead and used a 3-1 run midways through the first half to grab a 9-8 lead. The Bruins answered right back with a 5-2 run to grab a 15-11 lead. USD then once again grinded down the lead and when they were trailing 20-17, USD put together a 5-1 run to take the lead at 22-21. After a UCLA timeout, USD closed things out on a 3-2 run to force a fourth set.



In the fourth and final set, San Diego once again put up a great fight. UCLA took the early lead with a 7-4 run, but after a timeout, San Diego went to work as they put together a 4-1 run to tie up the score at 8-all. San Diego then held close until a questionable call at the net went in favor of the Bruins gave UCLA a huge momentum switch as they went on a 5-2 run to gain some breathing room at 19-15. USD just could not overcome the push and eventually fell 25-17.
