    SEATTLE— Alexis Austin and Gabby Simpson combined for 27 kills as the University of Colorado volleyball team fell to No. 6 Washington, 3-0, on Sunday night.

    Austin led both teams with 14 kills, while Simpson was second with 13 kills in the match.

    The Buffs (8-6, 0-2 Pac-12) put up a valent effort in the loss with set scores of 25-20, 25-17 and 25-22.

    The stats were very close. UW had 42 kills, 14 errors and 100 attacks to hit .280, while CU recorded 40 kills, 18 errors and 99 attacks to hit .222. UW picked up 33 digs to CU’s 32 and had the advantage at the net, posting 8.0 blocks to CU’s 3.0.

    The biggest difference in the match was at the service line. The Buffs recorded eight errors to UW’s two and the Huskies had six aces to CU’s three. UW is now 12-0 on the year (2-0 Pac-12).
    ...
    The Buffs continue a four-match road swing next weekend in Oregon. They will take on the Oregon Ducks on Friday, Oct. 2, in Eugene at 9 p.m. MT and on Sunday, Oct. 4, Oregon State will host the Buffs in Corvallis for a match at 12 p.m. MT. Both contests will be televised on Pac-12 Network.

    I'd say a respectable but still not, of course, satisfying performance for the team against the #6 team in the country. Buffs just need to shake it off, keep grinding and improving, and, following the great example of Elmer Fudd (although hopefully with much more success), go duck (and beaver) hunting next weekend.
