Georgia preview

The No. 14 Kentucky volleyball team enters the weekend atop the Southeastern Conference standings at an undefeated 8-0 and ready for a road test at Georgia on Friday at 7 p.m. ET before coming back to Memorial Coliseum for 1:30 p.m. showdown on Sunday with South Carolina in UK’s annual “Pink Match,” raising awareness for breast cancer during the month of October.

Both matches will be streamed via SEC Network+.

UK is riding an 11-match win streak into the weekend and is coming off a sweep at LSU prior to a five-set comeback at Texas A&M. The Wildcats have swept three of their last five opponents and have held their last ten opposing hitting percentages to .199 or lower. Five of the last seven matches have seen Kentucky hit .300 or higher, which is in large part why the Wildcats boast a .296 hitting clip for the top mark in the conference and fifth in the country. UK also ranks first in kills per set at 13.97 and assists per set at 12.81.

Georgia enters the match having lost six of its last seven, most recently coming up short last week in four sets against South Carolina and five sets against Texas A&M. T’ara Ceasar and Rachel Ritchie lead the Bulldog attack as both rank inside the top-10 individuals in the conference in kills per set at 4.26 and 3.52, respectively. Setter Meghan Donovan guides the offense with a conference-leading 11.19 assists per frame. Libero Kendall Glover heads up the defense with 4.16 digs per set, good enough for fifth in the SEC. UK leads the all-time series with Georgia, 43-25, and is 22-1 under Craig Skinner against the Bulldogs.
