    Box Score

    Fairfield, Conn. - For the second time in as many matches, the University of Illinois at Chicago volleyball team came from behind to earn the 27-30, 30-19, 28-30, 30-23, 20-18 victory over Harvard in the Flames second match of the Fairfield Volleyball Classic at the Walsh Athletic Center on Saturday afternoon.

    With the victory, UIC improves to 8-2 on the campaign and will take on Fairfield tonight at 7:00 PM in hopes of claiming their third-straight tournament title this season. Harvard falls to 0-2 on the season.

    Junior outside hitter Teaha Shepperd led the Flames' offensive attack with 19 kills, while Lindsey Filkins (14 kills), Gina Caneva (13 kills), Kristi Herrington (11 kills) and Meghan Keck (10 kills) each turned in double-digit kill performances for UIC. Freshman libero Julie Popp chipped in 22 digs for UIC.

    UIC head coach Don August was proud of his team's performance as they faced match point in game five as the Flames' trailed 16-15. Sophomore outside hitter Jordan Studzinski (4 kills), however, put an end to Harvard's bid for victory with a momentum-changing kill.

    "I was proud of our tenaciousness today," August said. "We overcame our mistakes and we had a real fighting spirit.

    "We just wanted to win so badly."
