HOW IT HAPPENED
BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
QUOTABLES
"Martina Samadan, Romana Kriskova and Kristin Boyd really gave us lot of offense, and Amanda Love and Marisa Low gave us great defense. They worked well together and did some nice things in the back row."
 
"We had talked about how [Army] was going to play, with lots of intensity and emotion, and we were going to have to match that, and we didn't do that in the first set. Later in the second set we called a timeout and then we picked it up emotionally and our defense really picked up and carried over into the third set. The big difference for us was defense. It gave our hitters more chances."
 
-- VCU Head Coach James Finley
