The University of Southern Indiana volleyball team took one on the chin Friday night as Northern Kentucky University handed the Screaming Eagles a 30-20, 30-22, 30-24 loss at Regents Hall in Highland Heights, Kentucky. USI falls to 18-8 overall and 7-6 in the GLVC while the Norse improve to 22-10 and a league-best 12-2 in the GLVC.

Defensively, the Eagles were taken apart as the Norse racked up a .395 attacking percentage, including a .567 hitting percentage in the second game.

USI hit .242 as a team, led by the performances of junior middle blocker Leeanne Gross (Decatur, Indiana) and sophomore middle hitter Laura Ellerbusch (Newburgh, Indiana). Gross finished with a match-high 17 kills and a .457 attacking percentage while Ellerbusch chipped in 11 kills and hit .364.

Senior setter Kim Boehmer (Cincinnati, Ohio) moved into third all-time in GLVC history for career assists as she recorded 42 assists in the loss. She now has 5,131 assists in her career.
