Good morning Clemson fans! This is today’s Clemson Tigers News.
Clemson Volleyball defeated UTEP 3-2 (14-25, 23-25, 25-19, 25-13, 15-7): The Tigers finish the comeback to defeat the Miners in five sets.
The Tigers achieved their first reverse sweep during the tenure of head coach Jackie Simpson Kirr. A reverse sweep is when the team loses the first two sets but then wins three in a row to win the match.
Mia McGrath had 15 kills and 2 blocks, and Katie Hurta had 16 kills. The team had a great all-around effort with several players contributing.
Next up is Georgia Tech at home on Wednesday.

Dabo Swinney meets with the media after the game
Head coach Dabo Swinney met with the media after the FAU victory and updated everyone on the status of Andrew Mukuba and Walker Parks, who were both held out of the game last night.
"“(Parks) was just a little sore, so we felt like it would serve him well to sit this one out, and then Mukuba is on the path that we thought he would be, so we’ll see where he is Monday.”"
Swinney is hopeful they will both be available next weekend against Florida State. He was less certain of Cole Turner’s status after he left the game Saturday with what appeared to be a lower body injury.
"“I hate losing Cole. I don’t know what we’re dealing with there. Have to wait and see.”"
