Lemau'u notched 20 digs and against UALR and again recorded just one reception error. Overall, she had 47 digs in the two matches, averaging 5.88 digs per game.

Middle Tennessee returns home after a month of road matches. The Blue Raiders host Southeast Missouri State at 2 p.m. Saturday in Alumni Memorial Gym.
