Austin Peay seemed unfazed by Memphis’ strong close to the second set. The Tigers opened the second frame with a 4-1 run but Austin Peay immediately responded with a 5-1 run to take a 6-4 lead.

Neither team would gain control of the set, the Lady Govs twice extending their advantage to three points.

APSU's Jada StottsMemphis dominated action out the break. In the third set the Tigers opened with an 8-2 run and did not look back in a wire-to-wire, 25-15 victory. The fourth set was more of the same, this time it was a Memphis 9-3 run to open the set en route to a 25-13 match-ending win.

“We didn’t have the same intensity or confidence as in our three previous matches,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “Memphis is obviously a hot team right now. Their middles were very hard to stop today.”
