The third day of the tournament was then cancelled due to rain and Memphis was awarded the runner-up trophy after earning the #2 seed following pool play.
Following the FIU tournament, the U of M traveled to Grambling, La., where it took 14-0 and 22-0 victories to sweep the double-header from Grambling State.
With the 4-2 record on the week Memphis pushed its mark to 7-3 on the year.
