Penn State dismantles Washington for trip to national title game

SEATTLE -- Penn State swept Washington on Thursday night to advance to the national title game on Saturday night. 

It was only the second time Washington has been swept all season, the first sweep coming in a loss at Stanford on Nov. 20.

Penn State's Deja McClendon had 23 total attacks and led all players with 11 kills. Dominique Gonzalez and McClendon each added 13 digs for the Nittany Lions. Ariel Scott contributed 10 kills to the Nittany Lion attack as Katie Slay led all players, hitting .727.

Krista Vansant, who led Washington to a 3-2 comeback victory against Southern California on Saturday night, faltered against Penn State. While she led all players on Saturday with an impressive 38 kills, she garnered only 7 kills and 28 total attacks in Thursday's semifinal match.

Kaleigh Nelson led Washington with 8 kills in the match.

The Nittany Lions will face Wisconsin in an all-Big 10 national title game on Saturday in Seattle.
