NEW ORLEANS -- Sha Sha Buchanan's 12 kills and Meredith Donald's 21 digs Tuesday led Spring Hill to a 35-33, 25-18, 25-14 women's volleyball victory against Xavier University at The Barn.

The Badgers (9-3) are 12-0 all-time against the Gold Nuggets (5-3). They swept Xavier for the eighth consecutive time.
