No. 5 Pitt volleyball was stunned by Duke today for their first loss of the season, losing 3-1. The Panthers weren’t exactly dominated as every set was close but they were soundly beaten and the better team clearly won today.
The Panthers won the first set with relative ease, 25-18, and it looked like it would be a typical day resulting in a Pitt win. But the Blue Devils would come back and win three in a row from Pitt, 26-24, 25-23, and 25-22. Each set could have gone either way but, Duke had just a bit more down the stretch every time.
