When sets are decided by less than a handful of points, all self-inflicted injuries become even more painful. That’s how it was for Arizona on Thursday night in a 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-15) loss to Arizona State.
Despite the fact that ASU came in at 12-0 and Arizona at 5-6, the first two sets showed two evenly matched teams. The Sun Devils were able to raise their game and avoid errors in the crucial moments, though. Marta Levinska certainly helped.
Levinska had a game-high 19 kills. No one else on the Sun Devils had more than seven.
