LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Kentucky volleyball team began Southeastern Conference play the same way it ended the non-conference slate, with a 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-14) sweep of Georgia on Wednesday night in Memorial Coliseum in front of 1,291 fans.The UK defense was in top form, holding the Bulldogs to a .043 hitting percentage and racking up 52 digs during the contest. Georgia only managed 20 kills in the sweep and committed 16 errors. Senior Anni Thomasson led the way with a season-high 14 digs while junior Ashley Dusek followed with 13 of her own. Thomasson added a service ace, while Dusek also scored twice by way of an ace.Our defense was very good tonight, holding an SEC team to 10 kills in two sets is pretty impressive, head coach Craig Skinner said. We didnt block a ton of balls, but we channeled the ball to our diggers. Playing floor defense that well is good for us.The UK offense kept pace with the defense, notching a three-set season-high 48 kills while hitting .268 during the contest. Freshman Leah Edmond once again paced the Wildcats attack with 16 kills on 34 attempts. The outside hitter also added nine digs and two blocks.Junior Kaz Brown was also heavily involved in the offense. Brown racked up a season-best 13 kills on 19 attempts, hitting .579 while committing just two errors. The junior added five block assists, moving her to second all-time in the 25-point rally era school history with 296.Setter Olivia Dailey facilitated the offense from the floor with 40 assists. Dailey is just the fifth player in Wildcat history to contribute multiple 40+ assist contests.Kentucky had seven players contribute offensively with kills led by Edmond and Browns double-figure outputs. Sophomore Brooke Morgan and junior Emily Franklin both contributed six, while junior Darian Mack added four. Morgan had a trio of blocks to add to the defensive effort.With the win, Kentucky improves to 8-4 on the year and 1-0 in SEC play while Georgia drops to 12-2 and 0-1 in the SEC. UK will be back in action on Sunday to take on Mississippi State at 1:30 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.SET RECAPSSet 1 After starting the match with two kills from Franklin and Edmond, neither team could gain a commanding lead early on.

The Wildcats ended the set on a 12-2 run that powered to a 25-19 win. Five Wildcats - Brown, Mack, Franklin, Edmond, and Morgan all recorded kills during the frame.Set 2 The second set almost mirrored the first. The frame was tied at 8-8, 13-13 and 14-14 before an Edmond kill started an 11-2 stretch helped by five Georgia errors that propelled UK to a 25-16 victory in the second set. Brown led the attack with five kills on just six swings.Set 3 Kentucky ran away with the third set to close out its fifth-straight sweep. UGA jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but UK responded to make the match 5-3 and did not look back.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12.Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Reigning champion and five-time overall winner Serena Williams and last years runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska were a pair of routine second-round victors Thursday at Wimbledon. The world No. 1 superstar Williams rolled past 19-year-old Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-2 in 67 minutes at the All England Club. The American great smacked nine aces and was not broken in the predictable matchup. "Shes incredibly promising, she does everything well," Williams said of Garcia. "Her serve is amazing, so I knew it would be a good match on the grass." Williams was among those restoring order at the years third Grand Slam event just one day after five former world No. 1 women exited the draw via upset or injury, including former champion Maria Sharapova and reigning two-time Australian Open titlist Victoria Azarenka. The 31-year-old Williams is now riding a career-best 33-match winning streak and is a brilliant 76-3 since losing in the first round at last years French Open. Williams is also the reigning French and U.S. Open champion and owns 16 Grand Slam singles titles overall. She beat Radwanska in last years final here to capture her third Wimbledon title in four years and also captured an Olympic gold medal at the All England Club last summer. Her third-round opponent will be 42-year-old Japanese Kimiko Date-Krumm, who is the oldest woman to reach the third round at Wimbledon in the Open Era. "I dont know how shes able to do so well," Williams said. Meanwhile, the fourth-seeded Radwanska improved to 8-1 at Wimbledon over the last two years by blasting Frances Mathilde Johansson 6-1, 6-3. The Poles third-round opponent will be promising American Madison Keys. Former Grand Slam champs Li Na and Samantha Stosur also reached the round of 32. The sixth-seeded Li posted a 6-2, 1-6, 6-0 victory over previously hot Romanian Simona Halep. The bottom half of the draw was turned upside down on Wednesday, when the second-seeded Azarenka, third-seeded Sharapova and ninth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki all exited. Petra Kvitova, the 2011 Wimbledon champ, was the only top-10 seed in the bottom half to survive the carnage and did so thanks to a walkover win against Yaroslava Shvedova. Halep could have posed a problem for Li, as she entered the All England Club after capturing titles each of the past two weeks -- first in Nuremberg and then in Den Bosch. After dominnating the second set by winning 28 of the 40 points played, Halep was no match in the third as the 2011 French Open champ turned the tables and won 28-of-42 points.dddddddddddd. Li had lost in the second round at Wimbledon each of the last two years after a quarterfinal appearance in 2010, and was coming off a second-round loss at this months French Open after a runner-up finish at the Australian Open. Up next for Li will be Czech slugger Klara Zakopalova. Stosur, the 2011 U.S. Open champ, had little trouble for the second match in a row this week. The 14th-seeded Australian cruised past Russian Olga Puchkova, 6-2, 6-2, after a 6-1, 6-3 rout of Slovak Anna Schmiedlova in the first round. The competition will get a little tougher for Stosur in the third round, as Sabine Lisicki now awaits. The 23rd-seeded German, a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2011 and twice a quarterfinalist in the London suburb, thumped Russian veteran Elena Vesnina, 6-3, 6-1. Eleventh-seeded Italian Roberta Vinci snuck into the third round with a 6-1, 4-6, 9-7 decision against Slovak Jana Cepelova, while other winners Thursday included 18th-seeded Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova, a 32nd-seeded Zakopalova, Keys, Date-Krumm, Croat Petra Martic, New Zealands Marina Erakovic, and Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova. Cibulkova needed just 49 minutes to dispatch Spains Maria Teresa Torro-Flor, 6-0, 6-1; Zakopalova topped German Annika Beck 7-6 (7-5), 6-3; Erakovic upended 24th-seeded Chinese Peng Shuai 7-6 (8-6), 6-2; Keys knocked out 30th- seeded German Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-2; Date-Krumm advanced with a 6-4, 7-5 triumph over Romanias Alexandra Cadantu; Martic claimed a 7-6 (9-7), 6-1 win over Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic; and Pironkova downed Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 7-5, 6-3. Pironkova was a semifinalist here in 2010 and quarterfinalist in 2011. Three second-round matches, including one for seventh-seeded German Angelique Kerber, were postponed because of rain on Thursday -- surprisingly the first rain stoppage of the fortnight. The third round will commence Friday, including matches for an eighth-seeded Kvitova, 15th-seeded former Wimbledon runner-up Marion Bartoli and 17th-seeded American Sloane Stephens, who will take on Czech Petra Cetkovska. Also on the Day-5 schedule will be rising Canadian Eugenie Bouchard and giant- killer Michelle Larcher de Brito, who shocked the former Wimbledon champ Sharapova on Wednesday.
