The Missouri volleyball team fell 3-1 (16-25, 25-21, 11-15, 19-25) to UC-Davis on Saturday in the Denver Pioneer Classic. The loss moves the Tigers to 10-2 overall.

Lisa Henning led Missouri with 16 kills, and Emily Wilson added 10. Defensively, Brittney Brimmage and Molly Kreklow led the Tigers with four blocks each, and Priscilla Armendariz led with 10 digs. Missouri’s back row struggled with just 46 digs while being aced five times.

The Tigers began the first set with a 4-1 lead and kept things close until midway through when they struggled to control the Aggies' attack. The second set was better for the Tigers, who played especially well defensively, tallying five of their eight blocks of the match.  

Missouri struggled to control the ball in the final two sets, especially in the third set where they tallied a season-low 11 points.

Missouri plays next at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Denver for the Pioneer Classic when they take on the Denver Pioneers.
