OMAHA, Neb. – Early deficits in each set proved too difficult to handle as the Oral Roberts volleyball team fell on the road at Omaha (14-25, 15-25, 16-25) Tuesday night from Baxter Arena.
An early 6-1 run from the Mavericks was too much to overcome in the first set, while Omaha quickly built another double-digit lead in the second stanza, 16-6, and claimed a 2-0 set lead. The Golden Eagles were able to hit at a .292 clip in set two getting 10 kills, but five service aces from the Mavericks erased any chance of a comeback.
ORU faced the same situation in the final set as the home side did not waste any time taking a major advantage scoring a 10-2 run opening the third.
