The series between the two squads is now an even 3-3 in their past 6 meetings, which includes a 2-2 split in the past four meetings at Louisville.
The Leopards fell to the visiting Dukes on their home court last season 22-25, 25-17, 25-23, 23-25, 12-15 for their only league loss in their 13-1 Outright NBC Championship Run. LHS now stands alone atop the NBC Standings as the only league undefeated.
So far this season, Louisville has not surrendered a single set to league foes in going 12-0 through their first four games. Lady Leopards Volleyball has not won 12 straight sets to start a league season since rally scoring was adopted in 2006. This is the first time Louisville has won 12 straight sets to start a season since 2000 when they began the season on an 18-set winning streak through their first 9 conference games using the old scoring system. That year, Leopards Volleyball won one of their four District Titles in their history.
