    Box Score

    Green Bay, Wis. - The University of Illinois at Chicago volleyball team clinched a tie for third-place in the Horizon League, as the Flames earned the 32-34, 26-30, 32-30, 30-23, 15-13 come-from-behind victory over UW-Green Bay at the Phoenix Sports Center on Saturday afternoon.

    UIC performed when it needed to most as the Flames hit at an amazing clip of .571 (12 kills, 0 errors, 21 attacks) in the fifth game to clinch the match. UW-Green Bay was equally as proficient in the final game with a hitting percentage of .450 (10 kills, 1 error, 20 attacks).

    "It was a real gutsy performance," UIC head coach Don August said. "We made plays today when we needed them most."

    With the victory, UIC improves to 20-13 overall and 7-7 in the Horizon League, while UW-Green Bay falls to 16-17 on the campaign and 7-7 in league action.

    Junior outside hitter Teaha Shepperd led UIC with 22 kills, 14 digs and five service aces. Shepperd finished with a hitting percentage of .341 (22 kills, 7 errors, 44 attacks).

    UIC received double-doubles from juniors Meghan Keck (50 assists, 14 digs) and Lindsey Filkins (16 kills, 11 digs). Senior middle hitter Gina Caneva tied a season-high with 17 kills for a hitting percentage of .353 (17 kills, 5 errors, 34 attacks).

    August also cited the performance of Megan Hoffman as the sophomore middle hitter pounded home five kills in three games off the bench for the Flames.

    UW-Green Bay's Janelle Tomlinson recorded a match-high 30 kills for the Phoenix, while Jessie Theys and Amanda Timmers each chipped in 12 kills apiece.

    UIC will travel back to Wisconsin next weekend as UW-Green Bay is hosting the Horizon League Championships from Nov. 22-24.
