October 12, 2013

Box Score

     LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Xavier University of Louisiana defeated Philander Smith 25-20, 25-15, 25-10 Saturday in Gulf Coast Athletic Conference women's volleyball to tie a school record for consecutive victories.
     The Gold Nuggets (14-7, 6-0) have won eight in a row. The 2011 Nuggets had a pair of eight-match win streaks.
     Xavier also extended its GCAC win streaks — 28 straight in the regular season and 34 straight overall, which includes conference tournaments.
     Philander Smith is 8-18, 5-3.
     "We were able to run a different lineup today," XU coach Hannah Lawing said. "Everyone got to see the court, and we made some small changes at the net that may be permanent.
     "It wasn't a perfect match for us, but we worked through the mistakes and stayed united and energetic as a team. We are looking forward to another home match, a challenging one, on Tuesday against Mobile."
     Xavier and Mobile will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Convocation Center. It will be one of three XU non-conference matches next week. Xavier and Mobile split a pair of matches this season.
