  • PROVIDENCE, RI – The Rutgers women’s volleyball team defeated Providence, 3-1 (30-10, 22-30, 30-17, 30-17) Sunday afternoon in Rhode Island. The Scarlet Knights fell in its first four conference matches, but have since rebounded to win three in a row. With the win, RU improves to 14-8, 3-4 in the BIG EAST. Providence falls to 2-23, 0-7 in the BIG EAST.

    Shayla Bush’s (Spokane, WA) 22 kills at a .378 hitting percentage and 14 digs led the way for the Scarlet Knights. It was Bush’s 14th double-double of the season. Lauren Venarchik (West Chester, PA) tallied 15 kills at a .500 hitting percentage and eight total blocks (three solo, five assists), while Pualani Tuyay (San Diego, CA) recorded 54 assists, 13 digs and four block assists.
