Junior setter Cagla Sen accumulated 32 assists and six digs in the match, marking the ninth time this year she has had 20 or more assists in a match.

Sophomore Courtney Castle posted eight kills and 10 digs for the Eagles while sophomore libero Lauren Fields had a team-high 13 digs.

The Tigers, picked to finish third in the ACC preseason poll, attacked with a balanced offense as Moneshia Simmons (who entered the weekend second in the ACC in kills per set), Sandra Adeleye (a preseason All-ACC selection), and Kristin Faust each recorded 13 kills.

Workman posted another six kills in the set bringing her total to 12 kills with another set to play. Sen dished out nine assists in the set upping her total to 22 assists through the first two sets while Castle chipped in with two kills and three digs in the set.
