No. 19 UCLA defeats No. 10 Oregon

  Senior Karsta Lowe had a career-high 33 kills, the most for a UCLA player in the rally-scoring era (since 2001).

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Senior Karsta Lowe set a new career-high with 33 kills, hit .473 and added five digs, as the 19th-ranked Bruins defeated No. 10 Oregon in four sets on Wednesday at Crossroads Gym. Set scores were 25-18, 25-21, 20-25, 25-19.

Lowe's 33 kills were the most for a UCLA player in the rally-scoring era (since 2001), the most for a Bruin since 2000 (Kristee Porter, Sept. 3 vs. Texas A&M) and tied for the 15th most for a Bruin in a single match. She was two kills shy of the UCLA four-set record (Ashley Bowles, Nov. 15, 1998 at Washington) and the second time in three matches that Lowe has set a new career best in kills after posting 30 against Utah on Oct. 10.

The Bruins (13-5, 4-3 Pac-12) hit .441 for the match, the 53rd-consecutive contest they have won when hitting .300 or better. Senior Julie Consani had a season-best 59 assists, two shy of tying a career-high, and added five digs and five kills, which tied a personal best. Freshman Reily Buechler posted the first double-double of her career with 13 kills and 13 digs, tallying a .429 hitting percentage with just one error in 28 attempts and four blocks.

Elsewhere offensively, senior Zoë Nightingale had seven kills and no errors in 13 attempts (.538), redshirt sophomore Haley Lawless posted eight kills and sophomore Jennie Frager notched five kills and one error in seven swings (.571) with six blocks, which tied a career-high. Defensively, sophomore Taylor Formico had 10 digs and eight assists, which tied a career-high, while junior Karly Drolson added five digs.
