USF volleyball posted its first Big East win in a convincing fashion against Georgetown on Saturday.
Middle blocker Kristina Fabris and outside hitter Michelle Stalbaum both turned in outstanding performances as the Bulls (2-14, 1-6 Big East) defeated the Hoyas (5-14, 1-6 Big East) 3-0. Fabris and Stalbaum’s combined 35 points equaled Georgetown’s entire offensive output.
