Of the the 64 kills recorded on the night by the Chippewas, junior Jordan Bueter accounted for 26 kills. Sophomore Laura Wilson also pitched in with 13 kills.

CMU travels to Akron on Saturday for a 5 p.m. match against the Zips. Akron enters Saturday as the worst team in the MAC, boasting a 0-8 conference record.
