HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The No. 13 University of Hawai’i women’s volleyball team (10-0) narrowly remained unbeaten after downing No. 17 Missouri in five sets to remain one of five undefeated teams in the NCAA DI.

The Rainbow Wahine bested the Tigers in Game 2 of the Baylor Classic, 17-25, 28-26, 16-25, 25-16, 16-14 on Saturday afternoon at the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas.

Wahine Junior middle blocker Skyler Williams led UH with 13 kills while hammering a match-high .500 while rookie middle Amber Igied tallied a match-high eight blocks—including the final point of the game.

UH had three players with double-digit kills and five with double-digit digs in the win.

Williams also notched five blocks, three digs and two assists in the win. Her 13 kills tied her career-high which she set earlier this season, and marked the third time this year that Williams has had double-digit kills.

The Wahine win sets up a battle of undefeated teams as the Rainbow Wahine will take on host No. 5 Baylor (8-0) on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 9:00 a.m. HT.
