VILLANOVA, Pa. -- For the second straight day, the Binghamton women's volleyball team (6-9) dropped a pair of matches at the Villanova Volleyball Classic. The Bearcats opened the day with a 3-1 loss (30-28, 16-30, 21-30, 20-30) to Princeton, before being falling in four games (23-30, 30-28, 20-30, 26-30) to Liberty University in the nightcap. BU concludes the weekend tournament with an 0-4 mark. After winning six of seven, the Bearcats have now lost five consecutive matches.

Princeton (4-3) had four players hit for double-digit kills, led by the duo of Sheena Donohue and Parker Henritze, both of whom put down 17 apiece. The Bearcats came out on top in a hard-fought 30-28 decision in game one, but were unable to keep up with their Ivy League counterparts, as the Tigers rolled to in three straight games to claim their fourth victory of the season.

In Saturday's finale, the Bearcats and Flames split the first two games, with Liberty taking the opener 30-23 and BU bouncing back to take the second set 30-28. Liberty took advantage of some poor BU hitting to take game three before wrapping up the match with a 30-24 game four win.

Junior
Ashley Allen (Mill Creek, Wash.) had a combined 21 kills and freshman Lindsey Mueller (West Bend, Wis.) added 35 digs and 82 setter-assists in the two matches to pace the Bearcats.

BU resumes play against Yale on Friday at the BlackBird Invitational in Brooklyn. The following day pits the Bearcats against host LIU and Towson University.
