Congratulations to the UK Volleyball team, which just came back to beat BYU in five sets to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history. Tomorrow at 4 p.m., they’ll face the winner of Colorado/Nebraska, which is about to get underway at Memorial Coliseum.
After going down two sets to one, the ladies stormed back to force a fifth set, which they dominated. Sophomore Leah Edmond was unbelievable, keeping the Cats in it with a team-high 21 kills. Here’s match point:
