EUGENE - The #5 seed University of Oregon volleyball team (27-4) capped a successful first weekend of NCAA action with a 3-0 win over Dayton (27-5) Saturday night at Matthew Knight Arena.

The Ducks upped their consecutive set win streak to 15 with its 25-15, 25-20, 25-21 NCAA Second-Round victory over the Atlantic-10 champion Flyers.

UO now looks ahead to its third 'Sweet 16' trip under eighth-year head coach Jim Moore (and fourth overall) thanks to another balanced effort.

"We were good at keeping our composure tonight," Moore said. "Dayton showed last night they're a tough team and they never give up. I've said that the first time you host postseason matches it's so dangerous because there are so many unfamiliar things to deal with. However, our players handled it well, and the crowd played a huge part as they always do."

Entering the weekend ranked first nationally in kills and ninth in hitting, Oregon posted its 16th +.300 hitting mark of the season (.350), and seventh-best overall among its 31 matches.

Similarly on defense, Oregon tied its season high in blocks (10.0) and held Dayton to a .173 hitting percentage - the 21st team to hit .200 or less on the campaign.

In various team comparisons, UO held edges in kills (53-35), assists (46-34), digs (50-46) and blocks (10.0-5.0); the two teams tied in aces (3-3); and Dayton held an advantage in fewest service errors (3-7).

Sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner paced the team in hitting (.458) for the 11th time on the season, thanks to her 10th +.400 total. The All-Pac-12 selection added eight digs and four blocks en route to 15.5 points.

Pac-12 Player of the Year Alaina Bergsma topped the team in kills (16) for the 21st time this season. The redshirt senior outside hitter also posted five digs and three blocks, and her 19.5 points topped the team in the category for the 20th time in '12.

"I knew watching Liz at the start that she was going to have a good night," Moore said. "She's not easy to face on defense when she played at the level she was at tonight. We went to Alaina a lot, probably more than we had probably hoped, but we had a match-up that we thought we could take advantage of."

The Ducks' balance at outside hitter was punctuated by another strong effort by senior Katherine Fischer (8 kills, .350, 7 digs).

Freshman middle blocker Canace Finley notched her third-highest kill total of the season (7), and her error-less evening on 11 attempts netted her a season-best .636 hitting mark.

On defense, her team-high five blocks led the team for the ninth time this season, and was UO's second-highest total for a three-set match, just behind her overall team high (6) at Portland State in early September.

Also at middle blocker, junior Ariana Williams added six kills, hit .286 and ended with three blocks.

Senior libero Haley Jacob anchored the back row with a team-high 16 digs - her fifth-best total among the team's 21 three-set matches this season.

Pac-12 Setter of the Year Lauren Plum posted 41 assists, and her 12 digs marked her sixth double-double this season and 25th career-wise. The two-time All-Pac-12 pick and junior was one of three Ducks to log aces with Jacob and Bergsma.

Seeing their 19-match win streak come to an end, category leaders for the AVCA-No. 13 ranked Flyers included Rachel Krabacher (16 kills, .235, 18.5 points), Samantha Selsky (27 assists), Janna Krafka (11 digs) and Isolde Hannan (4 blocks).

Saturday's outcome - the first ever between the two teams - tied Oregon's all-time best win total since the start of NCAA play in 1981 with its 1984 mark (27-12) - albeit two years before the start of Pac-12 action.

Likewise, UO's 16-4 Pac-12 ledger garnered a best-ever second-place Pac-12 finish, and improved upon its former-best fourth-place finishes in 2008, 1989, '87 and '86.

"Getting to host an NCAA event in Eugene really meant a lot to our program," Brenner said. "We worked hard all season to have this chance, and now that it's all over, it was an important step for our program. The excitement in the air was something I, or our fans, will ever forget."

Looking ahead, UO next plays BYU in Omaha, Neb., in the NCAA Third Round on Friday, December 7. The winner advances to Saturday's NCAA Regional Final vs. the winner of Friday's match between #4 seed Nebraska and #13 seed Washington.

"It was great to win tonight, but we are looking forward to getting back to practice on Monday," Bergsma said. "We have a lot of things to work on and the teams in Omaha are all great."

Earlier this weekend in Seattle, Washington beat Central Arkansas (3-0) and Hawai'i (3-2); Nebraska swept Maryland Eastern Shore and Northern Iowa in Lincoln, Neb.; and BYU swept New Mexico State and Oklahoma in Provo, Utah.

Two other Pac-12 teams are still alive as #2 seed Stanford swept Jackson State and Western Kentucky, and #6 seed USC won 3-0 at home over Fairfield and St. Mary's.

The other three regionals and teams set to play next Friday-Saturday include West Lafayette, Ind. (#1 Penn State, #8 Minnesota, #16 Kentucky and Purdue), Austin, Texas (#3 Texas, #6 USC, #14 Florida and Wichita State) and Berkeley, Calif. (#2 Stanford, #15 Iowa State, Michigan and Michigan State).

All three regional matches will be video-streamed live by ESPN3.com and Saturday’s match will also be televised by ESPNU.
