TEMPE, Ariz.—Behind a 15-kill night from freshman BreElle Bailey, the Arizona State volleyball team topped Washington State in straight sets (25-22, 25-22, 25-17) on Wednesday in Wells Fargo Arena.

The Sun Devils took a 21-17 lead late into the first set of action, led by a frame-high six kills from Bailey before Washington State used a 3-0 run to cut the lead to one point. ASU then used a pair of kills from Sophomore Macey Gardner and another from Bailey to pick up the set, 25-22.
