HOW IT HAPPENED
Set 1
Trailing 4-2 in the opening set, Houston took control with a 10-2 run, highlighted by a pair of kills from both senior middle blocker Brianna Gardner and sophomore outside hitter Megan Duncan, to take a 12-6 lead.

Set 2
Both teams traded points across the early goings of the second set. Holding a one-point edge at 15-14, ECU used a 7-1 run to pull away for a 25-22 win to even the match at 1-1 at intermission.
