Junior Andressa Lyra has now recorded double figure kills in all 17 matches as she had 10 kills against Troy. Here 10 digs gives her 12 double doubles on the season.
The Blue Raiders continue their Sun Belt Conference road swing on Friday, September 30 when the team travels to Arkansas State. If the Blue Raiders can win the match, the team will be just one win shy of equaling their win total from 2004.
