NASHVILLE---Tennessee State dropped a five game match to Eastern Kentucky (30-24, 30-19, 28-30, 28-30, 10-15) Tuesday night in Kean Hall. In doing so, the Colonels claim their second OVC win of the season.
After falling behind two games to none, Eastern Kentucky (3-19, 2-10 OVC) pulled out three straight wins to steal the match.
Tennessee State moves to 11-10 overall and 9-3 in the OVC.

The fourth game was also played close. TSU pushed ahead 24-20 following a kill from Oliver but EKU would respond with a 5-1 run to knot the game at 25. The lead would go back and forth before the Colonels managed to pull out the 30-28 win.
