OXFORD, MS - The Mizzou Volleyball team got back in the win column with a 3-1 (25-18, 18-25, 27-25, 25-23) victory against the Ole Miss Rebels at the Gillom Sports Center in Oxford, MS. on Wednesday evening.

After failing to eclipse double-digit total blocks in their last four matches, the Tigers got back on track with 16.0 total stops at the net. Mizzou was paced by Alyssa Munlyn with eight total blocks, including four solo stops, matching her career high. The 16.0 total blocks also matched Mizzou's single-match high from its Sept. 29 contest at Auburn.  

The Tigers saved their best offensive performance for the last set, recording 18 kills on an exceptional .471 hitting percentage. Senior Courtney Eckenrode finished with a team-best 33 assists against Ole Miss, her second 30-plus assist match this season in SEC play. 

Mizzou will wrap up its road trip with a Sunday matinee against the Georgia Bulldogs. First serve in Athens, GA. is set for 12:30 p.m. CT.
