The struggle in Pac-12 play continued for the Arizona State Sun Devils as the Colorado Buffaloes came to Tempe and left with a sweep 25-21, 25-16, 26-24 on Friday night.

Once again, it was an inconsistent attack that did the Sun Devils in. As a team, they hit .168 with 18 attacking errors.

Senior opposite Oluoma Okaro was the most effective player for ASU, as she tallied 18 kills on 42 swings. However, the rest of the team combined for 20 kills on 77 swings.

Okaro would also finish with 10 digs to give her a double-double.

The revolving door at the setter position continued, as both freshman setter Shelbie Dobmeier and sophomore setter Nicole Peterson saw reps at the helm of the offense tonight.

Dobmeier finished with a double-double, and recorded 22 assists and 13 digs. Peterson would finish with 10 assists and four digs, respectively.

The Buffs attack from the middle proved to be the most efficient. As senior middle blocker Anna Pfefferle notched her eight kills on only 14 attempts, as the Buffaloes only committed one error.

It was also the all around play from junior outside hitter Alexa Smith that the Sun Devils could not overcome. Smith would finish with seven kills, 12 digs and three blocks to help her team all over the court.

This marks the seventh straight loss for the Sun Devils who have yet to grab a conference win under first year head coach Sanja Tomasevic.

They will have one more match at home against the No. 13 Utah Utes and skilled senior outside hitter Adora Anae on Sunday.

Then, it is on the road to face both of the Oregon schools from Oct. 20-21.
