Florida records sixth league sweep of year

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida freshman middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan registered a career-best .846 hitting efficiency and junior outside hitter Gabby Mallette put down a season-tying 12 kills as the No. 8 Gators blanked Arkansas 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-22) Sunday in front of 2,022 Florida faithful, solidifying the top spot in the SEC standings as the only team undefeated in conference play.

Sunday’s victory against the Razorbacks (11-9, 5-2 SEC) marked a conference-best nine consecutive wins for Florida (14-3, 8-0 SEC) and the Gators’ sixth sweep in league play this season. The Orange and Blue posted nine blocks, compared to Arkansas’ two, dug up 36 balls to the Razorbacks’ 28 and landed six service aces, while Arkansas had just two.

Alhassan and Mallette combined for 23 of Florida’s 44 kills and 27 of the Gators’ 59 points, while sophomore right side Alex Holston added nine slams and three blocks in the sweep. Junior middle blocker Simone Antwi and Alhassan each posted four blocks to help aid the Gator defense.
