STORRS, Conn. - Following back-to-back BIG EAST wins, the
Last Time Out
The Huskies won back-to-back games for the first time in league play to improve to 13-12 overall and 3-7 in the BIG EAST. UConn came back from first set losses in a 3-2 win over Notre Dame and a 3-1 win over DePaul at home. Several players posted career games, including junior libero Kelsey Maving, who posted a program single-game record for digs with 40 against the Fighting Irish. Freshman outside hitter Devon Maugle recorded career-highs in kills and digs against ND with 18 and 17. Junior outside hitter Mattison Quayle registered a double-double in each game for her team-leading eighth of the season and fourth in the last five games. Classmate Angela Roidt surpassed 50 assists in each game with a career-high 56 against Notre Dame.
Maving’s Efforts Earn her BIG EAST Player of the Week
Maving was named the BIG EAST Player of the week for the week ending October 30. She totaled 66 digs in a 2-0 weekend against Notre Dame and DePaul. Maving set a UConn volleyball record with 40 digs against the Irish and picked up 26 more against the Blue Demons. Earlier this season, she reached the 1,000-dig mark for her career and also surpassed 400 for the season, averaging 5.31 digs per set. Against Fairfield (September 9), she recorded a then season-high 30 digs and has now posted 30 or more digs four times throughout her career. Maving also accomplished the feat once as a freshman and once as a sophomore. She is one of six BIG EAST student-athletes to post at least 30 digs in a match this season.
