LSU’s volleyball team opens the SEC portion of its schedule by hosting No. 20 Arkansas at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The Tigers (6-4) and Razorbacks (9-1) will be televised on SECN+ with Lyn Rollins and Fran Flory on the call.

Right side Hannah Jacobs follows with 92 kills and 22 blocks. Larkin anchors the team’s defense and leads the SEC with 163 digs which ranks No. 41 in the NCAA. Anwusi has 56 kills and Alia Williams 50 kills for the Tigers.

Setter Josie Vondran ranks No. 10 in the SEC with 7.55 assists per set. She also has 30 kills, 13 blocks and eight aces.
