The No. 7 Mizzou went down to Gainesville and swept No. 5 Florida, 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-23), on Friday night to improve to 30-0 and 14-0 in SEC play. The Tigers now holda a two-game lead (including the tiebreaker) in the SEC Championship hunt.
It was also the first time that Florida has been swept at home in SEC play and just their sixth home SEC loss under head coach Mary Wise. It is Mizzou’s first 30-win season since 1978 and the first in the NCAA Tournament era. The Tigers remain as one of two unbeaten teams nationally. Senior two-time All-American Lisa Henning (Blue Springs, Mo.) led the way for Mizzou with 17 kills on .500 hitting in the win as she became Mizzou’s all-time career-points leader with a match-high 18.5.
The Tigers will be back in action Sunday at South Carolina for a 12:30 p.m. (CT) match.
