Binghamton sweeps Providence in quality offensive performance
BU remains in second place of America East with victory

Box Score

Providence, R.I.-- The Binghamton volleyball program regained their form as they defeated Providence College in straight sets. BU improved their record to 11-13 overall and 6-3 in the America East. With the win Binghamton remained in second place in the conference standing.

"It was a pretty dominating performance overall," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "I thought we executed very well on offense which was good to see. The girls came out ready to play tonight and it showed on the court."

Binghamton took control of the match right from the start going on a 4-0 run to give BU the 15-9 advantage. Binghamton remained in control of the first set behind six kills by Anna Lejina. The Bearcats finished off the frame on a kill by senior captain Michelle McDonough, winning the first set 25-18.

The second set was much of the same as BU used a .371 hitting percentage to take the frame 25-17. Providence kept the set intereseting until the Bearcats went on a late 4-0 run taking a 20-15 lead. Binghamton never trailed in the set, going up 2-0.

In the third and final set BU continued to overpower the Friars. The senior hitting duo of Lejina and McDouough kept the Providence defense off-balance, unable to block any of their attacks. Binghamton won the set 25-19 and earned their sixth sweep of the season.

Binghamton dominated Providence behind a hitting percentage of .337 while the Bearcat defense limited an ineffective Friars offense that hit just .128.

Lejina finished the match with 14 kills and 6 digs while fellow classmate McDonough put down 12 terminations and picked up 8 digs.

Junior setter Julie Chambers handed out a match-high 35 assists while chipping in 6 digs. Freshman Xiomara Ortiz paced the Bearcats defense with 14 digs from the backline.

The Bearcats are back in action Sunday as they travel to New Hampshire to take on the Wildcats. First serve is set for 1 p.m.
