No. 9 NYU sweeps No. 14 Kean

NEW YORK -- New York University (5-1,1-0 United Volleyball Conference) defeated 14th-ranked Kean (3-5) on Tuesday at the Coles Sports Center in Manhattan. The match lasted three sets with a score of 25-21, 25-19, 28-26.

This match marked a much-anticipated rematch for the home team as the Cougars topped the Violets in a five-set thriller on March 28 of last season.

After controlling the tempo in the first two sets, NYU found itself playing from behind in the third game. The squad relied on a steady offensive attack and solid serve-recieve to overcome the deficit and win in extra points.

"We played very well today against an extremely talented opponent," NYU head coach Jose Pina said. "Overcoming adversity in the third set proved a lot about our character and toughness."

UVC Rookie of the Week Chase Klein led all players with 13 kills. Connor Mortland totaled a match-high 34 assists.
