Austin Peay (2-5) could not overcome its own errors throughout the match. The Lady Govs finished with 34 errors in the contest, including 20 attack errors. UAB maintained a cleaner outing with 19 errors, including only seven on attack.

Despite all the miscues, neither team was able to piece together long runs in the opening two sets, with each team stringing together a three-point run only three times each. UAB had two such runs in the opening set, both in the latter stages. A four-point run – the longest by either team before the break – pushed its lead to 22-16 en route to a 25-18 win.

UAB (5-1) came out of the break and pieced together a match-best five-point run and later added a four-point burst to build a 12-5 lead. Austin Peay only won back-to-back points four times in the set as UAB pulled away for the match-clinching 25-16 victory.

“We were right there in the first two sets,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “We just had errors at the wrong times and it cost us. I believe we didn’t come and match UAB’s intensity to start the third set and we weren’t able to dig out of that early hole. We have to play more consistently in all phases of our game. We have a short turnaround to get ready for a talented Middle Tennessee squad.”
