COLUMBIA - The Mizzou volleyball team topped archrival Kansas, 3-1 (25-21, 26-24, 20-25, 28-26), in thrilling fashion on Wednesday night Oct. 12 at the Hearnes Center. The win improved the Tigers to 15-7 on the season and 2-4 in Big 12 play.

Sophomore outside hitter Lisa Henning from Blue Springs, Mo. led the Tigers with 27 kills, matching her career high and marking the second-straight match that she has hit that mark. She has also finished with at least 20 kills for the fifth consecutive match.

The Tigers handled Kansas in the first two sets as they took a 2-0 lead into intermission. But Kansas rallied to win the third and the Jayhawks were up by as many as six points in the fourth before Mizzou escaped with a thrilling comeback in the fourth, 28-26, in a back-and-forth affair down the stretch.

Looking more into Henning's night, the Tiger sophomore tallied her 27 kills on .293 hitting while pitching in three blocks and six digs as she continues to lead the Big 12 in kills per set during Big 12 play. Her lowest kill total in the last five matches has been 21 as she has been the league's hottest hitter in that span.

Aside from Henning, Mizzou got a great performance from sophomore setter Molly Kreklow from Delano, Minn. who tallied her eighth double-double in her last nine matches with 54 assists and 10 digs; she also tallied four blocks. Kreklow's favorite target on the night was Henning, but she also connected well with freshman middle hitter Whitney Little from Keller, Texas who tallied 10 kills on .333 hitting, the former of which was just one shy of matching her career-high.

Senior Brittney Brimmage from East St. Louis, Ill. also pitched in eight kills while freshmen Katie O'Brien from Dallas, Texas and Emily Wilsonfrom Omaha, Neb. added seven and six kills, respectively.

Defensively, Mizzou was led by a strong effort from senior libero Priscilla Armendariz from Blue Spring, Mo. who tallied 23 digs in the four sets.Freshman Sarah Meister from San Diego, Calif. also continued her fine play as of late by matching her career-best with 15 digs.

Those two also passed well in the match, converting 43 of 45 service receptions. Little led the Tigers with four blocks in the match.

Mizzou will be back in action on Saturday against Texas Tech and 5 p.m. at the Hearnes Center. Admission to the match is free and fans are encouraged to come to the match immediately following Mizzou's homecoming football game against Iowa State.
