SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. — Creighton bounced back from its first loss in a month by sweeping Seton Hall on Saturday.
Freshman Norah Sis led Creighton with 14 kills. Junior Keeley Davis added nine kills and a career-best five aces. Junior Kiana Schmitt matched a personal best with six blocks.
The most significant moment of tension during the 26-24, 25-15, 25-18 win for the Jays Saturday came in a back-and-forth first set.
CU squandered three consecutive set points, but after the Pirates (9-9, 1-3) tied it at 24-24, the Jays won the next two rallies.
No. 16 Creighton finished the second set on a 13-4 run and used an early 7-0 run on Davis’ serve to seize control of the final set.
The victory comes one day after the Jays (15-2, 3-1) had their eight-match winning streak snapped at St. John’s, which won in four sets. The defeat was CU’s second on the season — and first since a three-set loss to Nebraska on Sept. 8.
The Jays are set to return home for Big East matches against DePaul and Marquette next weekend.
