Notes on the Tigers
LSU picked up a 3-1 victory over Ole Miss during the two teams only meeting of the 2012 season. The Tigers have now picked up wins in eight of their last 11 meetings with the Rebels going back to 2007. Madie Jones buried 25 kills, a SEC season-high for a four-set match in 2012. The 25 spikes for Jones also equaled a career-best for a four-set match. The Plano, Texas, native has provided double digit kills in all 11 of LSU's wins this season. She enters next week's action 14 kills away from moving past Meagan Davis [1998-2001] for 17th place on the program's all-time list. Desiree Elliott chipped in 15 kills on a crisp .406 hitting percentage. She has ripped 10 or more kills during 12 of her last 14 outings dating back to Sept. 16. With her 44 assists versus Ole Miss, Malorie Pardo eclipsed former All-American Sam Dabbs [2008-09] for the No. 7 spot in career helpers. She has compiled a SEC-leading 10 double-doubles in conference play. Helen Boyle has added 3.07 kills and 3.05 digs per set during league action. She is one of five players to be ranked inside the SEC's Top 20 in both categories. LSU's back row was superb en route to a 64 percent sideout efficiency and converted on all 84 of their reception attempts during the Ole Miss match. Meghan Mannari recorded 20 digs, the fifth time she has reached that plateau this season. She heads into the week 52 scoops away from surpassing Detra Brown [1983-86] for the No. 9 position on LSU's all-time digs list. Mannari has amassed 4.84 digs per set, third-best in the SEC. The Tigers open up a four-match road swing with matches against Georgia [Friday - 6 p.m. CT] and Missouri [Sunday - 1:30 p.m. CT].
