Shelbi White had 26 assists for the Lady Bleu Devils.
Volleyball - Thu, Oct. 4, 2012
Despite 26 assists from freshman setter Shelbi White, the Lady Bleu Devils fell to cross town rivals SUNO in three sets (25-19, 25-25, 29-27).


Junior outside hitter Carolyn Baker led Dillard with 11 kills, and senior middle blocker Jessica Goods-Morris chipped in with six kills of her own, but it wasn't enough as junior middle block Sabrina Scott dominated the net with 15 kills for Southern University at New Orleans.

The Lady Bleu Devils (1-5 overall, 1-4 GCAC) showed signs of life in the first set as they trailed 21-19, but SUNO went on a 4-0 run to end the set.  The second set was controlled by the Lady Knights (12-3 overall, 4-1 GCAC) as they forced Dillard to a dismal hitting percentage of .192. 

Dillard exchanged points with SUNO throughout the entire third set, and almost stole one on the road, but the Lady Knights were relentless behind a nice crowd as they pulled away 29-27 behind sophomore setter Stephanie Buhl's 46 assists.

On Friday the Lady Bleu Devils look to bounce back at home as they host Alcorn State University.  This game has been dubbed the "Pink Out" game where fans are encouraged to wear pink articles of clothing in support of breast cancer awareness.  Special DU breast cancer volleyball t-shirts and pink ribbons will be sold at the game in order to raise money for breast cancer awareness.
