NEW HAVEN, CONN.-- Junior outside hitter
Michelle McDonough tied a career high with 22 kills and added 14 digs, leading Binghamton (7-8) to a 3-1 win over Quinnipiac (1-14) in the final match at the Yale Bulldog Invitational on Sunday afternoon. The Bearcats won 25-19, 15-25, 25-14, 25-15.

"We played pretty well, especially towards the end of the match," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "Michelle had a nice all around game and (as a team) we did a lot of good digging and blocking."

Defensively, the Bearcats held the Bobcats to 13 kills over the final two games. Quinnipiac hit just .077 in the third game and .114 in the final game.

Binghamton also did not allow a service ace the entire match.
