Acebook: Dillard's servers keep Xavier offline
September 30, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Zorana Piljevic and Monica Barros de Alcantara combined for 11 of Dillard's 15 aces Thursday in a 25-18, 25-15, 25-18 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference victory over Xavier University of Louisiana before 900 fans at Dent Hall.
     It was the first women's volleyball meeting in six years between the longtime rivals, and the Lady Bleu Devils (7-3 overall, 1-0 GCAC) have won all seven times.
     Piljevic served six aces — two during a 7-1 run to open the second set and two in a row to bring Dillard to set point. De Alcantara had five aces.
     Krista Hall led Dillard with nine kills, and Jamara Celistan had six. Sierra Lyons led Xavier (4-10, 1-2) with 10 kills, and Celeste Poe had 10 digs. Xavier, one of the NAIA team leaders in aces, served just two.
     Dillard used a 10-1 run to erase a 6-4 Xavier lead in the first set and won the third set after trailing 5-0. Valencia Wise's kill put Dillard ahead to stay at 17-16 and started a 9-2 run to close the match.
     The Gold Nuggets will try to snap a seven-match losing streak when they play Spring Hill (10-2) at noon Friday in Loyola's Hampton Inn Wolfpack Classic. Dillard will play Loyola at 7 p.m.
