Marissa Mortensen (Elk Grove, Ill.), also had double digit digs in the win with 11.

 

"Kaena had moments in the game where she played outstanding and really was on her game," Devine said. "We know that this team has the desire to get better every time they step out on the court."

 

With the win the Bucs are now 17-12 overall and 7-2 in conference play. The Bucs wrap up the regular season with a pair of conference home matches next weekend as they will take on Kennesaw State on Friday at 7 p.m. and Mercer on Saturday at 2 p.m.
