Arkansas senior outside hitter Pilar Victoria leads the NCAA in kills and was averaging 6.02 per set heading into Sunday at LSU.
The Razorbacks had a chance to win in four, up 24-22 on a Victoria kill, but lost that set and ultimately the match to LSU 25-23, 21-25, 19-25, 27-25, 15-12.
Victoria, the 5-foot-11 product of Caguas, Puerto Rico, had a tough start Sunday. She had attack errors on her first four swings and didn’t get her first kill until Arkansas was trailing 17-9. Even with that, she ended up with 21 kills. She hit an uncharacteristically low .101, but still had 14 digs and three aces.
