Binghamton volleyball defeated at Albany in four games
Kane eclipses 1,000 career kill plateau in BU road loss
ALBANY, N.Y. -- Four Great Danes recorded double-digit kills as Albany (16-8, 6-3 AE) moved into third place in the America East Conference standings with a 3-1 win over Binghamton (15-16, 6-4 AE) on Friday evening. The Danes came out on top by scores of 30-24, 28-30, 30-27, and 30-24.
Freshman outside Teresa Coppiellie posted a match-high 17 kills and junior Kamisha Kellam added 13 kills and a match-high 11 blocks in the winning effort.
The host Danes held a 15-12 advantage in team blocks and a commanding 18-9 edge in service aces.
Senior middle Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) led the Bearcats with 15 kills at a .375 clip (15-3-32) and added team-high eight blocks.
With the 15 kills, Kane became the eighth player in Binghamton University Volleyball history to record 1,000 career kills. She is now seventh on the all-time kill list with 1,008 for her career. The eight blocks bring her to 593 for her career - 21 shy of Susan Rinde '84 for the program's all-time lead.
Junior outside Ashley Allen (Mill Creek, Was.) and freshman setter Lindsey Mueller (West Bend, Wis.) each added double-doubles for the Bearcats. Allen had an 11-kill, 17-dig performance, while Mueller had 41 assists to go along with 16 digs.
"We have to play better obviously, but they played well when they needed to," said head coach Glenn Kiriyama. "Their serving really kept us off balance the entire match and their middles really gave our hitters a hard time at the net. We have two more left and they are both at home, so hopefully we can close out strong."
Binghamton hosts first-place Stony Brook on Thursday at 7 p.m.
