Redshirt junior Diego Negron paced the Lions with 17 kills, three aces, and five blocks in the win. Junior A.J. Lewis also had a strong performance, putting up seven kills and and two aces with one block.

Lindenwood traveled to Quincy two days later and defeated the Hawks again on Saturday 3-0. The Lions now hold a record of 5-8 overall, 3-5 in conference play, and will now host the Lindenwood Invitational starting on Friday, March 11, with their first game being against Lincoln Memorial University (Harrogate, Tennessee) at 7 p.m. at Hyland Arena.
