Posted by We Are Mizzou On 2:39 PM

The Mizzou volleyball team upset No. 12 Iowa State, 3-1 (19-25, 26-24, 25-22, 26-24), for their first win over a top 25 opponent this season on Saturday night at Hilton Coliseum. The win for the Tigers is their fourth straight and sixth in their last seven matches. The only team to beat Mizzou in its last seven was No. 3 Nebraska as Mizzou improves to 17-8 overall and 9-6 in Big 12 play. The win was also the Tigers' 10th away from home this season.Senior Paola Ampudia (Cali, Colombia) led Mizzou with 22 kills on .254 hitting while classmate Julianna Klein (Keota, Iowa) pitched in 16 kills on .224 hitting. For Ampudia, the 20-kill effort is her second of the week and gives her 43 kills on .265 hitting this week. Iowa State also had no answer for senior middle hitter Catie Wilson (Omaha, Neb.), who posted 11 kills on 30 errorless attacks. Mizzou won the match despite being out-killed, out-hit, out-dug and out-blocked as Mizzou's six service aces were a huge factor in the win.

Senior libero Caitlyn Vann (Muncie, Ind.) continued her fine play as of late as she pulled in 24 digs in the match while Priscilla Armendariz (Blue Springs, Mo.) pitched in 13, giving her more than 10 in each of the last two matches. For Vann, her 24 digs on Saturday gives her at least 20 digs in three of her last four matches. Ampudia also pulled in 11 digs, giving her a pair of double-doubles on the week. Freshman setter Molly Kreklow (Delano, Minn.) spread 47 assists in the win as well.

Mizzou struggled in the first set as it hit just .026 with only seven kills as it dropped the first, 25-19. Eight attack errors and two service aces from ISU are what kept Mizzou in the set, but three Tigers hit negative in the first and the Tiger attack struggled throughout the set. Iowa State corralled 22 digs in the first, helping limit Mizzou to just .026 hitting.

The Tigers looked much sharper in the second set as they jumped out to a 15-9 lead riding the arm of Klein. But the Cyclones rode their home crowd to knot the score at 22. Mizzou ran off two points after that, only to see ISU rally to knot the score at 24. But from there, Klein took over and tallied back-to-back kills to give Mizzou the second, 26-24. Through two sets, Klein led Mizzou with nine kills while Wilson pitched in four on 13 errorless attacks. Mizzou had 16 kills in the second set, nine more than it had in the first as it hit .250 in the frame.

Mizzou's offense continued to click in the third set as it tallied 18 kills on .295 hitting as it won the third, 25-22. Ampudia led Mizzou with seven kills on .400 hitting in the set while Klein pitched in five kills. Mizzou struggled to slow Iowa State in the set as the Cyclones tallied 15 kills in the frame, but Mizzou was three better, which proved to be the difference in the set.

Despite having momentum from winning the third, Mizzou fell behind 8-1 early in the fourth but rallied to win the set in extra points, 26-24. The comeback from down seven is the Tigers' largest single-set comeback this season and it helped Mizzou claim its first win over an AVCA Top 25 team this season.

Mizzou will look to win its fifth consecutive match when Texas Tech will play at the Hearnes Center this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. For all the latest on Mizzou volleyball, stay tuned to MUTigers.com.
