Volleyball upsets No. 5 Florida



STAFF REPORT [email protected] No. 24 ranked UK Volleyball shocked the Stephen C. O’Connell Center and the No. 5 ranked Florida Gators Sunday, upsetting Florida 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-21, 25-21) behind a career game from freshman Brooke Morgan. Morgan’s career-best 13 kills Sunday helped guide the Cats to its fifth straight match victory, now 9-5 overall and 2-0 in SEC play. Florida’s loss puts them at 9-2 overall and 1-1 in SEC play. It was a back-and-fourth battle in the first set, sparked by two blocks from Kaz Brown and Morgan Bergren to give the Cats a 3-1 lead. It wasn’t until Florida went on a 4-0 scoring run to take a 12-9 lead in the set and didn’t look back from there, taking the first set 25-22. UK found themselves trailing again early in the second set, but rallied behind 11 kills
