THE LEADERS
Marlowe Embry (San Jose, Calif./J.H. Pitman) recorded eight kills and 14 digs to lead the Green Terror.

• Tied at 5-all in the second set, NYU tallied the next five points to go on top, 10-5. McDaniel closed the margin to 13-11 but three straight errors and kills from Maddie DeJong and Katie Goyette pushed the lead to 18-11 en route to a 25-17 victory.
• The third set featured six ties and three lead changes before Caroline Rapp broke a 12-all deadlock and gave the Violets the lead for good in a 25-15 win.
