College volleyball: Utah earns four-set victory over No. 14 Oregon to sweep weekend

Utah defeats No. 14 Oregon in four sets

SALT LAKE CITY โ€” Utah finished off a weekend sweep with a four-set victory over No. 14 Oregon on Sunday at the Huntsman Center.
After winning the first two sets, Oregon battled to win the third, but the Utes stepped up in the fourth and closed the door to push their record to 11-8 overall and 3-5 in the Pac-12.

Bailey Choy and Saige Ka'aha'aina-Torres both had control of the offense leading the Utes to a .257 hitting percentage for the match. Choy had 33 assists and Ka'aha'aina-Torres had 22.
The first set was tight until late when the Utes went on a 3-0 run to go up 22-18. That was all the cushion that Utah needed as they went on to take the early lead in the match after a solo block by Kennedi Evans.
