Austin Peay (14-14, 8-5 OVC West) took advantage of an error-prone Tennessee State squad to pick up the win. The Lady Govs trailed by a 59-54 margin in kills but the Tigers committed a staggering 29 attack errors while APSU recorded only 16 attack miscues.

“We passed better and our intensity was better today,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “This was a much-needed win against a quality opponent. Hopefully, this will put us on the right track for our upcoming homestand.”

Jada StottsTennessee State (14-11, 8-4 OVC East) scored its Set 1 victory thanks to a 20-kill performance while it committed only six errors. However, Austin Peay romped in Set 2 thanks to a comparatively clean 13-kill, two-error performance as TSU’s offense was held to 10 kills and seven errors.

The Tigers jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the third set but could not hold on. Austin Peay used a 7-1 run to take an 8-5 lead and would not look back. The fourth set was the most competitive of the match with nine ties and three lead changes. The Lady Govs held the advantage but could not build a lead to avoid overtime, but back-to-back Tennessee State errors gave APSU the 27-25 victory.
