MEN'S VOLLEYBALL: Ball State crushes Princeton to end road trip
Cardinals dominate net with .477 attack rate
Any frustration Ball State had pent-up after another loss to Ohio State Friday was unleashed on Princeton the following night.
Ball State (11-7) easily swept the now 1-12 Princeton squad 3-0 (25-18, 25-14, 25-16) in New Jersey on Saturday.
The victory gives the Cardinals a 1-1 record in its weekend matches.
Senior Lee Meyer continued his solid weekend in the match. The outside attacker tied with senior middle attacker J.D. Gasparovic and sophomore outside attack Larry Wrather for a team-high five kills.
Gasparovic was perfect on the night with his attacking, hitting all five of his kills in five attempts.
The rest of the Cardinals did almost equally as well as Gasparovic in attacking, as the team finished with a .477 success rate. The final percentage ties for fifth-best for Ball State in the rally scoring era.
Six other Cardinals ended with at least three kills against the Tigers.
Ball State will move onto a pair of Pennsylvania matches this week as it plays Penn State on Friday and Saint Francis on Saturday. Both matches will begin at 7 p.m.
The Cardinals will have revenge on their minds against the Nittany Lions, who swept them 3-0 in the Outrigger Invitational on Jan. 15.
