Florida wins in five sets vs. Texas

Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Alex Holston slammed down a staggering 29 kills and junior setter Mackenzie Dagostino posted her fourth double-double with 57 assists and 16 digs, as No. 6 Florida used an all-around team effort to upset No. 3 Texas in a five-set thriller at Gregory Gym on Saturday in Austin to cap off the regular season.

Florida improved to 25-3 on the season, the program’s 24th consecutive 25-win season as UF added its 20th consecutive win.

In its final tune-up before the 2014 NCAA Volleyball Selection Show Sunday night on NCAA.com, Florida additionally relied on its senior-led back row, as senior defensive specialists Holly Pole (16) and Taylor Unroe (12) posted double-digit scoops.

The Gators improved to 5-2 this season against top-25 opponents, as Holston (29) and freshman outside hitter Carli Snyder (17) each notched double-digit kills -- Holston with the third-most in a single match in school history in the rally-scoring era. Holston’s 32 points were also the third-most in Gator history in the rally-scoring era as she added four blocks and a service ace to her line.

Four Gators scored double-digit points in Sunday’s victory and freshman Rhamat Alhassan led the Orange and Blue in blocks (5) for the 26th match this season.
