TUCSON - With its 3-0 win over Arizona (11-9, 3-6), the No. 3 University of Oregon volleyball team (17-1, 8-1) opened its trip to the desert with its 13th shutout of the season Friday night at the McKale Center.

With its 25-14, 25-23, 25-18 victory, UO staked three straight series wins vs. UA for the third time ever, and first time since 1991-92 (while the other occasion came in 1986-87).

The Ducks relied on another balanced evening offensively with its ninth +.300 total of the campaign (.337). In contrast, the Wildcats hit .171 - the 14th Duck foe to hit .200 or lower this season.

"I thought we out came out really good early, and Kellie (Kawasaki) had a 14-point serving run that was amazing," Oregon head coach Jim Moore said. "Unfortunately we didn't maintain that energy, and we can't afford to do that. We stopped serving tough in the second set, and that's when we started to lose focus, while Arizona passed well, too. Overall, Lauren (Plum)  did a nice job of distributing the ball, and we were able to do some good things offensively."

UO also held comfortable edges in kills (48-36), assists (43-36) and digs (48-39); the two teams tied in aces (1-1); and UA owned an advantage in blocks (9.0-6.0).

Redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma led the team in kills for the 11th time in 2012 with her 13 kills, and her 14.5 points was her 12th team best of the year.

Three other Ducks logged nine or more kills - sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner (12 kills, .259), junior middle blocker Ariana Williams (9K, .438) and senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer (9 kills, .450).

Hitting-wise, the All-American from Chandler, Ariz., Bergsma posted a .357 mark - her 16th +.300 effort of the season - while Williams and Fischer logged their 10th and third +.400 totals of '12, respectively. Fischer also led the team in the category for the second time this year.

Senior libero Haley Jacob and junior setter Lauren Plum shared the team lead in digs (10) for the 14th and first times this season, and the latter's 40 assists marked her fifth double-double and 24th career-wise.

Also on defense, Bergsma and Williams shared the Ducks' nightly high in blocks (2).

Kawasaki landed the team's only ace of the match  - its lowest team total of the season.

UA's category leaders included sophomore Madison Kingdon (13 kills, 1 ace, 14 points), Rachel Rhoads (.429), Halli Amaro (3 blocks) and Candace Nicholson (15 digs).

After Friday's match, Bergsma moved up a spot on the Duck all-time career kills list (sixth, 1,231), and also stands seventh in hitting (.270).

Saturday’s outcome raised UO’s series record to 7-8 in Moore’s eight years at the helm and marked its third victory in Tucson in that stretch (after wins in 2007 and ’11), In the other 19 years of Pac-12 play, UO won only four times at Arizona in 1998, ’91, ’87 and, ’86.

Sitting alone in second place in the Pac-12, UO looks ahead to its weekend finale at Arizona State Saturday night at 7 p.m.

The Sun Devils (14-8, 3-6) ended a five-match losing streak at home Friday night with its sweep of Oregon State (13-8, 3-6).
