RALEIGH — After yet another dominant, 3-0 shutout, this time against conference rivals N.C. State, it appears that few teams are able to find a solution to stop the balanced offensive attack the No. 14 North Carolina volleyball team brings to the court each night.
“Our goal tonight was to be balanced and I thought we were,” UNC coach Joe Sagula said.
The stat sheet proved Sagula correct. All but two players on the Tar Heels’ active roster recorded a point tonight, and five different players had six kills or more for the Tar Heels (25-3, 14-3 ACC).
“Volleyball’s a team sport so you can’t rely on one person to win the game for you, so that was part of our strategy: get the ball, move the ball around, create splits in the blocks so we can use that to our advantage,” freshman setter Abigail Curry said..
That advantage clearly went in favor of the Tar Heels, who swept the Wolfpack 25-17, 25-14 and 25-20 in front of a tough crowd in Raleigh in yet another “team win” for the women in Carolina blue uniforms.
