Little doubt from the beginning, the University of Louisville volleyball team wrapping a 3-0 sweep over the University of Illinois at Chicago in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Scores of 25-11, 25-20 and 25-11.

Packed house, with 993 paid and countless NCAA officials, scouts and players. The Cardinals improving their record to 29-0 on the season.

A  very productive night for Anna DeBeer, the outside hitter from Assumption. She had 13 kills on 24 swings, one ace, one block and five digs. She’s just a sophomore, folks, and just getting started, getting better all the time. Steady and dependable.

Claire Chaussee adding 10 kills and two blocks, Aiko Jones nine kills and four blocks, and Anna Stevenson with six kills and four blocks.

Up next, the Cardinals will face-off against the Ball State Cardinals in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. at the L&N Federal Credit Union Arena.
