FSU spaced itself with a 3-0 run but Livingstone (3-15, 3-10 CIAA, 0-5 Division) climbed within striking distance at 21-19 mark. A kill by Bojo Jada (Jamestown, NC) and the blocking duo of Chynna Hunt (Summerville, SC) and Jada set Nakia McKinnie (Niceville, FL) for the final kill of the set and a 25-19 win.

Fayetteville State made easy work of the third set with an early 11-2 lead. After giving up two points, FSU preceded on a 6-0 run (17-4) before a Livingstone timeout. Afterwards, the Blue Bears created a 5-3 run to inch closer at 20-9, which forced FSU to call a timeout of its own.  Bojo Jada would lead the Broncos on a 5-2 run with two kills and an assisted block to complete the sweep with a 25-11 set.



Jada finished the match with eight (8) kills and two (2) blocks. Chynna Hunt had seven (7) kills and two (2) blocks.
