LEXINGTON, Ky. (9/11/13) – The No. 19 University of Kentucky volleyball team hosts in-state rival Louisville, Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.
The meeting marks the 51st meeting between the two squads and the fifth consecutive year the two schools have met since the rivalry was renewed on an annual basis in 2009.
The all-time series between UK and U of L is knotted at 25-25, dating back to the first meeting in 1977. The Wildcats have a 13-10 edge at home, including wins in the last two meetings in Memorial Coliseum in 2010 and 2011. The 2011 contest was a 3-0 victory for the Blue and White, the first sweep since 2005. U of L won last season’s matchup, 3-1 in Louisville. Since the rivalry was renewed in 2009, each club has claimed two victories. Each school owns a 3-2 win, while UK’s 2011 sweep is the only match not to go at least four sets.
