WINTER PARK, Fla.—Outhitting Rollins College 51 kills to 25, the 25th-ranked Barry University volleyball team picked up a three-set win on the road over the Tars on Saturday afternoon.
The Tars (10-5, 3-3) and Bucs (8-2, 5-1) were tied early and often in set one as neither team was able to separate themselves from the other. The teams were tied at 17-17 before a Tar kill and service ace gave Rollins the 19-17 lead. The Tars held the two-point lead through 24-22 before Barry scored the final four points of the match off two kills by Ady Alcantara, an ace by Julia Teixeira and a Rollins' error. The Bucs took set one 26-24.
In set two the Bucs quickly took a two point lead off of a kill apiece by Alcantara and Teixeira.

Rollins took the first two points in set three before the Bucs quickly tied it at 2-2 off a Teixeira kill and a Tar error. Rollins kept it close and scored three straight points to get within one at 13-14.
