Altrese Hawkins led Memphis with 12 kills and a .385 attack percentage, but that was the lone bright spot for the Tigers in a tough straight-set loss to Northern Illinois Saturday afternoon at the UIC 2010 Invite. The loss snaps a four-match win streak for Memphis, who falls to 3-2 on the year.
Memphis struggled to find a rhythm on either side of the net, hitting just .036 and giving up a robust .345 average to the Huskies. Northern Illinois posted 18 more kills than Memphis and aced the Tigers 11 times. Hajnalka Molnar dished out 18 assists.
Memphis will wrap up play in the UIC 2010 Invite at 5 p.m., when it meets Kennesaw State.
