Juniors Amanda Lutzow and Jackie Varnum each recorded a team-high seven kills while senior Marina Gusman-Brown collected eight digs. Additionally, freshman Kasey Kavanaugh started her fourth-straight match and dished out 19 assists.
The Paladins held the advantage in every statistical category, including hitting (.314 to .133), kills (41-24), digs (42-24) and blocking (5.0-2.0). Furman also took advantage of the Pirates' passing effort, recording eight service aces.
