Volleyball Unable to Break Temple Hex
Owls Post 10th Straight Victory in Series
Oct. 17, 2003
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Temple continued its volleyball dominance over George Washington Friday with a 3-0 sweep to move into sole possession of second place in the A-10. The Owls won easily, 30-22, 30-19, 30-23, at Temple's McGonigle Hall.
Temple (8-7, 5-1 A-10) was led by 2002 A-10 Player of the Year Xu Yun with a match-high 14 kills and 13 digs. Liu Shu contributed 10 kills and Yamit Haba added 15 digs in the 1-hour, 28-minute contest.
GW's hitting errors, combined with Temple's blocking, were too much for the Colonials to overcome. As a team, Temple hit .254 (46-16-118) compared to .081 (36-26-124) for the Colonials. Temple also out-blocked GW, 9-6.
Temple has won the last 10 meetings between the teams. GW's last victory over Temple came during the 1998 season. GW's four seniors have never defeated the Owls, who come to Washington for GW's final regular-season home match on Nov. 15 for Senior Night.
GW (15-4, 4-2 A-10) remains in Philadelphia to play La Salle in a 5:00 p.m. match Saturday.
