UK Volleyball Ranked No. 3 in Top 25 Poll

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The American Volleyball Coaches’ Association announced its Top 25 coaches’ poll on Monday afternoon with Kentucky slotting in at No. 3, and receiving a pair of first-place votes.

Kentucky ended the 2020 fall season as the No. 2 ranked team in the nation, but only teams that competed in the fall were eligible for rankings. Now that all teams competing in the 2020-21 season, the full field is eligible for rankings.

UK is one of three teams from the Southeastern Conference inside the top-25 with Florida at No. 12 and Missouri, who UK beat twice in the fall, at No. 16.

UK is 10-0 on the season after a two-match sweep of Arkansas this past weekend in Fayetteville, not dropping a set along the way. Kentucky travels to Georgia in two-weeks’ time after a bye upcoming this weekend.

Wisconsin was ranked as the No. 1 team in the country for a third-consecutive week, after they swept Illinois in Champaign, Ill. They received 48 first-place votes. Texas was No. 2, who is 14-0 this year and was complimented with 10 first-place votes.

Meanwhile, three UK players received weekly SEC honors, it was announced by the league office on Monday.

Gabby Curry was named Co-Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, Madi Skinner was named the SEC Freshman of the Week and Madison Lilley was crowned the SEC’s Setter of the Week.

The three awards for Kentucky come on the heels of a perfect 2-0 weekend at Arkansas, in which the Wildcats improved to 10-0 on the season with two sweeps of the Razorbacks. UK with the two wins remains in the driver’s seat of the SEC with a two-game lead on both Florida (8-2) and Missouri (8-2).
