UConn (10-15, 3-11 The American) dropped a pair of home matches to UCF and USF over the weekend. Freshman outside hitter Kenya Cason delivered a career-best showing against the first-place Knights, tallying 19 kills to go along with six digs. Senior tri-captain Devon Maugle joined Cason in double-digit kills (11) and capped off a double-double with 12 digs. The Plymouth Meeting, Pa. native is nearing 1,000 career kills (980) and attempting to become just the seventh Husky player to record 1,000 career kills and 1,000 career digs.
The Huskies are 3-7 all-time against the Owls but defeated their out-of-state foes, 3-0, in the team's conference opener on Sept. 24. Junior middle blocker Immanuella Anagu was nearly unstoppable in the match, setting a career high with 19 kills to go along with an outstanding .552 hitting percentage. Following the match, Anagu was named as the American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the week, becoming the first athlete in the history of The American to win both the Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week accolades in a single season. Anagu was tabbed as the conference's Defensive POW on Sept. 1.
Temple has reached the 20-win mark for the first time since 2005. The Owls are 20-6 overall with a 11-3 mark in the American, two back of UCF after handing the Knights their first conference loss on Sunday.
After the match, the Huskies will return to the friendly confines of Harry A. Gampel Pavilion to host East Carolina in a Sunday conference battle set for 1 p.m.
