LEXINGTON, Ky. - The 23rd-ranked Kentucky volleyball team utilized an explosive offense to capture a 3-1 (25-18, 23-25, 25-21, 28-26) win over visiting Texas A&M in front of 1,762 fans in Memorial Coliseum on Sunday. Kentucky notched 69 total kills and a .308 attacking clip to pull away from the Aggies. Freshman Leah Edmond with 25 kills and sophomore Olivia Dailey with 60 assists both set new career highs to help pace the attack.The duo guided the Wildcats to a program-record 69 kills in the win. Its the most in a four-set match in the 25-point rally scoring era. UK previously also broke the three-set total in a win over Ole Miss earlier this season.With the win, Kentucky improves to 22-6 overall and 15-2 against Southeastern Conference competition. Texas A&M, who is receiving votes in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association poll, falls to 19-8 on the year and 13-3 in league play.Todays match marked the final regular-season home match of the year for the Blue and White. UK will conclude the season at Tennessee on Wednesday. First serve is slated for 9 p.m. ET and the match will air live on ESPNU.(Im) Proud, as a coach, head coach Craig Skinner said. Against good teams, you have to be pretty stable mentally. Thats a team that can easily get you out of your rhythm. There was a wave of momentum throughout that whole match. Im proud of our team for sticking to it. We had a chance to break, and we didnt.Kentuckys attack was nearly unstoppable as the Wildcats notched 15 or more kills in all four sets, including 19 or more in the final two frames. Kentucky hit .500 in the 25-21 third-set win. UKs defense was stout and its blocking (12 combined rejections) was also a pivotal component of the victory.Weve evolved a lot from August until now, Skinner said. The evolution of a team is learning how to execute a skill, learning how to play together and learning how to play under pressure and when things are going against you. We took a step forward today, because there were times today when things werent going our way and we kept fighting and battling and willed ourselves to win.Edmond became the fourth player in the 25-point rally scoring era to amass 25 or more kills in a match, joining current senior Anni Thomasson and former All-Americans Whitney Billings and Sarah Mendoza to achieve the feat. The freshman from Lexington, Kentucky, was no bigger than her eight kills in the fourth set. She scored UKs final two points to cap off the win.Shes fearless, Skinner said. She made some mistakes, but then came right back and put the ball away. Thats what great competitors do. Our team has great faith and trust in her. She had a great match.Dailey also joined an elite club as one of four setters in UKs 25-point rally era scoring history to total 60 assists in a single match. The others to do so include Sarah Rumely, Elizabeth Koberstein and Morgan Bergren. The 60 assists in a four-set match tops Bergrens output of 55 vs. Louisville on Sept. 9, 2014 as a new program record. She narrowly missed out on her second-straight double-double with nine digs.Not to be overlooked, was an exceptional all-around match by junior Kaz Brown. The Waterloo, Iowa, native logged 12 kills on a team-best .500 hitting percentage. Brown also added a match-high seven blocks.Kaz was ready in practice yesterday, Skinner said. She decided she wanted to come and perform. She was up for the task and helped carry our team.Sophomore Brooke Morgan reached double-figure kill numbers with 10 hammers on a .444 attacking percentage. She also contributed four blocks to the win. Junior Emily Franklin produced eight kills on a .421 clip and contributed three blocks of her own and a pair of aces. Junior Darian Mack was the fourth Wildcat to reach double-digit kills with 11 total kills, two digs and a solo rejection that aided a momentum swing late in the fourth stanza for the Cats.Defensively, junior libero Ashley Dusek led the charge with 17 digs and three assists. Thomasson added nine scoops and an assist, while sophomore McKenzie Watson contributed eight digs and a match-high three aces.Prior to the match, Thomasson and fellow senior Sharay Barnes were honored as a part of Senior Day festivities.SET RECAPSSet 1 Franklin began the scoring with an ace for the Cats.

Out of the break, Edmond quelled the Aggies spurt with a kill off the block. Morgan guided the Wildcats back to within one at 10-9, with a kill immediately following a block in which she teamed up with Franklin to convert. Edmond would eventually tie the score at 11 apiece, and then a see-sawing affair would ensue. An ace from Franklin followed by a Brown kill off a quick-set lifted UK to a 14-12 edge.

The outgoing FA chairman is proposing a series of measures to make the council more modern and representative of the wider football community.Sky Sports News HQ understands councillors are keen to learn more about Dykes proposals and are not scared of change but have to be convinced any alterations will be for the good of the game in the long run. The governance reform has the approval of the FA board, but four of 12 board members voted against and Dyke has acknowledged it is going to be a fight to get through council.Among the proposals is a limit on the numbers of years a council member can serve: one current member has been in situ since the 1960s and Dyke wants a maximum of three three-year terms.The average age of members is mid-60s and of the 123 just six are women and four from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. Former FA Chairman Lord Triesman sympathises with Dyke Councillors maintain they are not simply trying to look after their own positions and it is understood a fair number of them are unimpressed with how Dyke has tried to railroad his way through the process.ddddddddddddheir belief is the scattergun approach he has adopted has upset many and while they feel the professional game looks after itself, they say the game needs their protection at grassroots level.One told us: The number of tickets we receive is not the issue. There are more unpaid volunteers in football than there are paid.Tickets for England and FA Cup games get passed on to the counties and provide a small way of rewarding those at grassroots level who give their time for free.Another added: We dont go about shouting from the rooftops about the hard work we put in. We get called the blazers yet were all putting our heart and soul into the game. Greg Dykes approach to his proposed reforms has upset a number of the FAs 123 councillors Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Dyke, who will step down in the summer rather than stand for a further year, said: It will not be that big a day for the FA as no decisions will be made today.Whats happened is that the board has come up with proposals for change, council are now going to discuss them and the board will go back and discuss what the council has said. So this isnt the day it will all be decided.What the board wants to achieve is to change the make-up of the council particularly so that it more accurately reflects society in the second decade of the 21st century.
