EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Tulsa handed SIUE its first loss of the volleyball season, defeating the Cougars 25-17, 25-19, 25-19 on day two of the Cougar Classic Presented by DoubleTree Hotels.

"We just really couldn't quite get into the flow," said Acting Head Coach Kendall Paulus.

Emily Harrison and Dylynn Otte led the Cougars with eight kills each.

Emily Hubbard and Emily Thorson paced the Golden Hurricane with 12 and 11 kills, respectively.

"We did much better in that third set," said Paulus. "Maybe it was fatigue, but I am not putting any blame on that because we have done this before."

SIUE has one more match left in the tournament with a 7 p.m. contest against UMKC.
