The North Carolina volleyball team (4-6, 1-1 ACC) overcame a two-set deficit to defeat Louisville in a thriller (19-25, 18-25, 25-18, 25-19, 15-12) on Sunday at Carmichael Arena.
For the second straight match, UNC dropped its first two sets before forcing a decisive fifth. The Tar Heels couldn’t complete the comeback in Raleigh against N.C. State on Friday. Today, though, they finished the job.
Outside hitter Taylor Leath led the team with 11 kills and defensive specialist Casey Jacobs had 22 digs as Carolina picked up its first ACC win.
Strong defense was the key to the game, according to head coach Joe Sagula.
“Without question, the best defensive play we’ve had all year,” he said. “I’m very, very proud of them.”
