No. 7 Southern California wraps regular season with sweep of Buffaloes

LOS ANGELES -- The seventh-ranked Women of Troy (26-5, 16-4 Pac-12) honored seniors Natalie Hagglund, Alexis Olgard, and Sara Shaw before their final regular-season match and topped off the celebration with a 3-0 sweep (26-24, 25-14, 25-21) of Colorado (17-13, 9-11). USC won its fourth consecutive match to end the regular season and will now await selection into the NCAA tournament.

Hagglund was the Trojans' heartbeat as she put up a match-high 18 digs to go with five assists and a service ace. Olgard finished the night with eight kills (1e, 18att) with a .389 hitting percentage and shared match-high honors with four blocks. Shaw knocked down five kills (2e, 15att, .200) to go with five digs and a block.

USC's offense was powered by sophomore outside hitter Samantha Bricio who led the way with 14.0 points on 12 kills (2e, 26att, .385) to go with two service aces and three digs. Bricio posted her seventh consecutive match with a service ace and her 29th of the season with at least one. Freshman outside hitter Ebony Nwanebu had 11 kills (2e, 24att) and hit .375 to go with two blocks.

Freshman outside hitter Elise Ruddins had eight kills (2e, 24att, .250) and three blocks and junior middle blocker Hannah Schraer had four kills (1e, 10att, .300) and four blocks (two solo).

The Trojans out-hit Colorado, .322 to .195, and had 48 kills (10e, 118att) thanks to setters Hayley Crone (17 assists and five digs) and Alice Pizzasegola (21 assists, eight digs). It is the 28th time in 31 matches that USC has posted a higher hitting percentage than its opponent.
