LEXINGTON, Ky. - The 25th-ranked Kentucky volleyball team continued to roll with another sweep, this one at the hands of visiting Tennessee in a 25-16, 25-18, 25-16 victory. UK has now won 10-consecutive matches for the first time since an 11-match winning streak in 2014.With the victory, Kentucky improves to 13-4 overall and 6-0 in Southeastern Conference action. Tennessee drops to 11-7 on the season and 1-4 in league play. The Wildcats return to the court with a pair of home matches next weekend. UK takes on Arkansas at 6 p.m. on Friday in Memorial Coliseum before welcoming Ole Miss on Sunday at 1:30.I really like our focus and it shows on game day, UK coach Craig Skinner said. In practice weve been doing a good job of really trying to improve and work on specific things. I was a little worried today that coming out of the break after being up 2-0 that we might let down a little bit, but having the lead didnt seem to phase them. That type of competitive maturity is very important.Kentucky simply dominated all phases of the match in the convincing victory over Tennessee on Sunday in front of 1,949 fans. UK overpowered the Lady Vols in every category including kills (45-36), hitting percentage (.333-.139), assists (42-34), aces (4-0) and blocks (12.5-1.0).Sophomore setter Olivia Dailey was exceptional once again, distributing the ball to a number of Wildcat attackers to keep the Lady Vols defensive effort at bay. Seven UK players had two or more kills on the afternoon. Dailey dished out 40 assists as UK averaged 15 kills a set on a .333 average.Junior Darian Mack was the most efficient of any Wildcat with nine kills on a career-high and match-high .571 average. It was her most productive match since posting 10 hammers on a .400 clip in a win over Lipscomb.Darian really changed the momentum and impacted the left side of the net with 5 blocks and 9 kills, Skinner said. Im really proud of her effort today. Darian is one of the best blockers from the left side of the net that youre going to see in the country. She has great instincts and has a great knack for where the ball is going to cross the net. We obviously want to take advantage of that.Freshman Lead Edmond topped double-figures for the 11th-consecutive match with a match-high 14 on a .407 average. Junior Emily Franklin had seven kills, while classmate Kaz Brown added six. Sophomore Brooke Morgan and senior Anni Thomasson both chipped in with a trio of kills, while senior Sharay Barnes added a pair of hammers.Franklin led the defensive charge with six of UKs 12.5 blocks. Mack was also sensational in this area as she turned back a career-high tying five of her own - including a pair of solo rejections. Brown added four, while Morgan chipped in with three.Junior Ashley Dusek led the backline defense with a match-high 11 digs. Three other Wildcats contributed a high number of digs with Thomasson, Edmond and Dailey all posting six. Sophomore McKenzie Watson added three and an ace.Thomasson, like much of the season, was UKs stalwart from the service line with three aces on the day.? Cheap Chase Edmonds Jersey . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. Cheap Mason Cole Jersey . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. http://www.cardinalsjerseyscheap.com/ . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. Cheap Korey Cunningham Jersey . - The Oakland Raiders re-signed offensive lineman Khalif Barnes on Friday. Cheap Christian Kirk Jersey . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. Sydney FC captain Alex Brosque is set to make his first start in over 10 months when he lines up in Wednesdays FFA Cup semi-final against Canberra Olympic.The former Socceroo hasnt made the run-on side since aggravating a hamstring injury against Melbourne Victory in February that plagued his entire 2015-16 A-League campaign.However Brosque hinted at giving the hamstring its biggest test against Canberra.Im yet to play 90 minutes. I didnt get a 90-minute game in pre-season so Im still working towards that, he said before training on Monday.Ill probably use Wednesday nights game to get as many minutes as possible and keep building. After the surgery I had, it definitely took its toll and was a lot of rehab involved.At 33 years of age, Brosque is the oldest player in the Sky Blues squad this season.But he has showed glimpses of his vintage over the clubs opening two rounds of the A-League, pinching two goals in second half thrashings of Western Sydney and Central Coast.And he said he hasnt given up ambitions of regaining his starting spot in the team.At the moment its easy coming on when these guys have done all the hard work and I come on when everyones tired, he said.Its made it a little bit easier but for me its still about looking after the hamstring, making sure that I last all 27-30 gamees of the season and not worry about these early rounds.ddddddddddddThe team is doing fantastic - (David) Carney, (Milos) Ninkovic, Bobo, (Filip) Holosko, theyre playing excellent. So theres no reason to change.At the moment Im just happy playing whatever part I can when I do come on the field to give them some fresh legs and add to what theyve been doing.One player coach Graham Arnold is unlikely to rely on is veteran defender Alex Wilkinson, who failed to finish Saturdays A-League win over Central Coast due to an ankle problem.Despite Wilkinson being named in a 19-man squad on Monday, Seb Ryall is likely to deputise in his place as he did against the Mariners.He had a boot on yesterday but its off today already and the swellings gone down. Hell probably rest in the FFA Cup, Id say. But should be ready to go next week, Brosque said.Arnold is otherwise expected to field a full-strength team as the club aims to progress to its first FFA Cup final against either Melbourne City or Melbourne Victory.I dont think theyve conceded a goal in the whole of the tournament so theyre defensively very good. Weve got to work out ways to break them down, Brosque said of Canberra.
