Box Score

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - The New Mexico volleyball team claimed the first game against Mountain West Conference-leader and 17th-ranked Utah in thrilling fashion, 34-32, but the Utes rallied back to win the match in four games Friday night at Crimson Court on the Utah campus. The Lobos return to action Saturday night to face BYU in Provo at 7 p.m. Live stats of the match will be available at www.BYUCougars.com.

The Lobos (7-14, 1-9 Mountain West), who nearly upset the Utes Oct. 2 in the Johnson Center after taking them to five games, again jumped out in front in Salt Lake City. UNM pounded 17 kills in winning the first game, 34-32.

Unfortunately for the Lobos, the Utes (17-3, 9-0 MWC) bounced back from the game one loss, and were victorious in the next three games. Utah won game two, 30-18, game three, 30-23, and game four, 30-17.

Senior Monica Meihack produced her fourth double-double of the season by dishing out 35 assists and collecting 10 digs.
