UK Volleyball 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (9/23/13) – The No. 19 University of Kentucky volleyball team hosts Morehead State Monday at 7 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum in the final non-conference match of the 2013 campaign.
 
Monday’s contest marks the end of an 11-match non-league slate for the Wildcats (7-3), who have gone 5-1 at home. The record includes a four-match winning streak and victories over in-state rival Louisville and a 3-2 upset of No. 4 Minnesota.
 
The Eagles (9-4) have won five straight and are 2-0 on the road. Their road victories have been at Cincinnati and Pittsburgh by 3-1 and 3-2 scores, respectively.
 
Monday’s meeting will be the first time since 2008 that the two teams have met and the 32nd time in the history of the series. All-time, Kentucky owns a 24-7 edge. UK has claimed 21-straight victories, dating back to a 3-2 win in 1980. The Wildcats lost six of the first seven outings against the Eagles. The two teams played the first 11 contests against each other in a three year span, between 1977 and 1979. While Kentucky sported a 4-7 record in that time, they have not lost since.
