It was an afternoon filled of records as Boise State downed Nevada in three sets.

BOISE, Idaho--The Boise State volleyball team stormed past Nevada, 25-18, 25-16, 25-11 this afternoon to register their 20th win of the season, the Broncos' 10th 20-win season in school history.  Since being down to Fresno State 2 sets to 0 on the road, Boise State has now won 15 consecutive sets.  Boise State has won 6 consecutive matches and 12 of their last 13.

Coach Shawn Garus' team set several records in the win.  Sophomore outside hitter Sierra Nobley recorded her 439th kill of the season in the first set to pass Sharon Leonhardt for the Boise State record.  Nobley broke a season mark that had been in the books since 1986, and finished the match with 448. 

Senior setter Sarah Baugh also moved up to fourth in career assists and set a record for the rally era that began in 2001 when Baugh moved her assist total to 3,584 in the opening set.  Baugh finished the match with 34 assists and passed former Bronco Mandy Klein (2005-2008).  

With the victory, Boise State won their 12th Mountain West Conference match, the most-ever by a Bronco team.  

Boise State hit 34.9% for the match and recorded 11 service aces against Nevada, which led the conference coming into the afternoon.  Junior Maddy O'Donnell hit 75% for the game as Boise State committed just 10 team errors to 19 for the Wolf Pack.  O'Donnell, who had seven blocks in the win over San Diego State Thursday night, added six this afternoon.  Hannah Hubbard saw extensive action as the Bronco libero and led the team with 10 digs.  

Madison Morell led Nevada with 11 kills.

Boise State travels to Air Force next week before returning home for the team's final two matches of the regular season.
