The Kentucky Wildcats are headed to the Sweet 16 of the 2021 NCAA Volleyball Championships. After a dominating sweep over UNLV, Kentucky showcased exactly why they’re a team to avoid in the tournament.

Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Madison Lilley recorded an assist on 44 of Kentucky’s 50 kills, absolutely dominating throughout the matchup. Avery and Madi Skinner each had 11 kills while Alli Stumler added 10 and Azhani Tealer with nine. Gabby Curry put together 10 digs, more than anyone else in the match.

With the dominating win, Kentucky moves on to the Sweet Sixteen and will suit up on Monday. You can follow the tournament ESPN2, ESPNU or ESPN3.
