TSU UPDATE: Tennessee State opened conference play with a 3-1 loss to EKU followed by a 3-1 win against Morehead State. The Tigers suffered a harrowing loss to the Colonels Friday night as the energy on the court was drained set-by-set. However, the following afternoon, the Tigers came back with a vengeance beating Morehead State 3-1 (25-20, 25-19, 23-25, 25-22). The match proved to be a record-breaking match for two of the Tigers.
