SMU Sweeps Memphis For 20th Win
DALLAS (SMU) – The SMU volleyball team defeated Memphis 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 26-24) in Moody Coliseum Friday night for its 20th win this season. The Mustangs improved to 20-8 overall, reaching the 20-win mark for the fifth straight season.

Lauren Mills led the Mustangs with 13 kills, and the senior finished with 10 digs for her 18th double-double of the season. Brittany Adams also posted a double-double with 11 kills and 11 digs, and Montana Watts had a match-high 12 digs. SMU hit .275 with 46 kills as a team, while holding Memphis to 36 kills and a .198 attack percentage.

Memphis (9-20, 2-15 American Athletic Conference) had a chance to avoid the sweep, serving for the third set with a 24-23 lead. Meryn Kennedy posted her fourth block of the match, teaming with Adams to tie the score. Kendall Patterson then got her fourth kill of the night, faking the set and scoring on the dump, and Hegarty blasted her ninth kill to give SMU (20-8, 14-3 The American) a 26-24 win to end the match.

The Mustangs hit .480 in the first set on their way to a 25-16 victory. Hegarty led the way with five kills, while Mills scored four without committing an error. Memphis led by two, 7-5, before SMU went on a 14-4 run to take control. The Tigers never threatened again the rest of the set.

SMU took a 2-0 lead in the match with a 25-18 win in the second set. The Mustangs led by two, 10-8, before embarking on a 7-2 run to take a 17-10 lead, which again was not threatened. Adams and Mills led the way with four kills each in the set. SMU scored 17 as a team, while holding Memphis to 11 and a .184 attack percentage. The Mustangs also had 23 digs to keep Memphis off the scoreboard, with Adams accounting for seven in the set.

The Mustangs host No. 21 Wichita State Sunday at 1 p.m. SMU will honor its seniors during a postmatch ceremony. The regular season concludes Friday against Tulsa at 2 p.m. after a match at Tulsa Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Wish these girls could teach a little mean attitude to the football D.

Go watch this team - They love to smash the ball down your throat. Then look you down and smile.

Maybe so, Bus, but then a more talented Wichita State team returned the favor. It's all about the talent 90% of the time
