CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson volleyball team will play its final regular season match of 2008 on Friday afternoon as the Tigers travel to Atlanta for a date with Georgia Tech. The teams are slated to begin play at 4:00 pm at the O’Keefe Gym.

Senior Danielle Hepburn leads the ACC in kills and blocks per set with averages of 4.00 and 1.47, respectively. The senior from Miami, FL also ranks 14th nationally with a .396 hitting percentage for the season, which would better her school-record .395 figure from a season ago. Hepburn is also leading the Tigers with 432 kills in 2008. Setter Kelsey Murphy is also atop the conference standings for assists per set with a 10.94 average. She moved into third place on the Clemson career chart last weekend and has gone over the 1,000-assist mark for the third straight season.

Scouting The Opposition Georgia Tech posted a pair of sweeps last weekend over Boston College and Maryland to hit the 20-win mark this season. The Yellow Jackets are in sixth place in the league but are just one match behind Clemson, Miami and Florida State for third. Talisa Kellogg owns a team-best 340 kills on the outside for Georgia Tech, while Callie Miller has recorded 307 kills in the middle. Overall, the Yellow Jackets are hitting a .263 clip while averaging 2.48 blocks per set.

Clemson Against The Yellow Jackets The Tigers lead the series score against Georgia Tech by a 31-20 margin. However, the Yellow Jackets defeated Clemson in a five-set thriller as part of the Clemson Classic earlier this season. The Tigers swept the Yellow Jackets last season in Atlanta, but Georgia Tech still leads, 11-10, in matches played on its home court.
