DALLAS (SMU) - The SMU volleyball team needed just three sets to beat Lamar Saturday in Moody Coliseum, taking their second match of the Doubletree Classic 3-0 (25-22, 25-17, 25-16).

Jessica Oliver led the Mustangs with 10 kills, and Dana Powell added a team-high 15 digs. Kelli Becerra had 36 assists, and Sidney Stewart had 13 digs for SMU.

In the third set, Lamar (1-4) matched the Mustangs (2-4) point for point early on, attempting to extend the match, but the Mustangs broke a 10-10 tie with five-straight points to break it open and never looked back. SMU went on to out-score the Lady Cardinals 10-6 down the stretch to close out the match with a 25-16 set win.

SMU survived a scare in the first set, coming from behind to take an early lead in the match. After SMU started with a 10-7 lead, Lamar battled back to take a 19-17 lead. The Mustangs fought right back, scoring the next four points and never trailed again, winning the set 25-22.

The Mustangs never let Lamar get close in the second set, jumping out to a 9-4 lead. SMU continued to stretch the lead, eventually winning 25-17 to go up two sets heading into the locker room.
