Marquette kicked off what will be a tough week of volleyball with a 3-0 (25-13, 25-23, 25-17) sweep of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Tuesday night.

As a team, Marquette hit .372 and was led by Allie Barber, who tallied 13 kills and hit at a .458 clip. Barber has already tallied 156 kills on the year. She also led the way defensively by getting eight block assists, as the Golden Eagles dominated the net with a whopping 14 blocks.

Anna Haak and Olivia Werch each contributed nine kills and Jenna Rosenthal added seven kills of her own.

Marquette was dominant in the first set, holding the Panthers to a -.057 hitting percentage and easily winning the set, 25-13.

The second set would be tougher for Marquette though. The Golden Eagles let the Panthers score three unanswered points, giving UWM a 19-18 lead and forcing Marquette head coach Ryan Theis to call a timeout. With the score tied at 23, Marquette scored on a Haak kill and then was gifted two free points on UWM errors to take the set 25-23.

Marquette got back to its dominant ways in the third set by hitting .448 and taking the set 25-17.

The Golden Eagles will head down to Madison to take on the Badgers on Thursday at 7 p.m.
