After a back-and-forth opening set, UAM allowed SNU to record comfortable wins in the last two sets due in part to poor hitting percentages.

As a whole, UAM totaled 23 kills and 22 errors on 133 swings for a .008 percentage. Southern Nazarene countered with 45 kills and 15 errors on 128 swings for a .227 team percentage.
