Jackson State used early runs in all three sets which propelled them to a 3-0 win over TSU in the opener.
 
JSU jumped out to a 5-3 lead in set one and scored three straight to move ahead 8-3. TSU cut the deficit to 8-5 and 9-6 but five TSU errors set up a 6-2 JSU run TSU couldn’t recover from en route to a 25-13 decision. TSU led early in set two on several occasions but an 8-7 TSU lead quickly turned to an 18-9 deficit after a JSU run. The hill was too high to climb as JSU claimed set two 25-12.
 
A 5-3 TSU lead in the final set once again turned into a 12-7 JSU lead until a kill from Erianna Murray ended the run. However, JSU put the game away with six straight points to lead 18-8 as once again, TSU couldn’t make up the points as they closed out the match 25-14.
