Vestal, N.Y. - Junior hitter
Anna Lejina posted 15 kills to lead Binghamton (8-8) to a 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-22) sweep of Siena (5-7) on Wednesday evening at the West Gym. BU is 4-0 at home this season and has won 10 of its last 11 home matches.

"I thought our outsides had a nice match," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "Anna and Michelle McDonough got the majority of our sets and had a good match and led us on offense tonight. I also thought Lindsey Mueller had a nice match of distributing the balls amongst our hitters. We are now looking forward to this Friday's match against New Hampshire."

BU came out to a solid start as Lejina posted five kills in the first set and teammates Sandra DeVito and McDonough each chipped in with four kills to help the Bearcats win 25-19.

McDonough got hot in the second set, putting down seven kills on a .375 clip while Lejina added five more kills to give BU a 25-20 win.

The third set was the closest of the match, with the teams knotted at 20-20 late in the frame. Binghamton was then able to then take four of the next five points, and eventually closed the match on a Siena service error.

McDonough finished the match with 14 kills and DeVito had seven kills on the night. Mueller dished out 36 assists and a team-high seven digs.

Siena's Burgandy McCurty posted a match-high 21 kills on 46 attempts. McCurty entered the week ranked fifth in the nation in kills per set.

Binghamton will play its America East conference opener at New Hampshire on Friday night.
