OMAHA, Neb. – The Oral Roberts volleyball team saw its three-match win streak come to an end Sunday afternoon falling on the road to Summit League-leading Omaha (19-25, 21-25, 19-25) at Baxter Arena.
After the Golden Eagles dropped the opening set, Tori Roe served a 4-0 run aided by two blocks for an early advantage. Both sides went back-and-forth until a 19-19 deadlock was broken as the Mavericks closed out the frame scoring the final three points.
Omaha raced out to a 9-3 start in the final set and ORU was unable to mount a comeback effort until late in the stanza. Kills from CeCe Madison and Bri Greenlee staved off match points before the Mavericks finished the contest to remain unbeaten in conference play.
