LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The NMSU volleyball team survived a five set battle with Houston on Friday night winning 3-2. The Aggies looked to be in control after winning the first two sets 25-21 and 25-17. Houston however would not go down without a fight and the Cougars mounted a rally and won the next two sets by identical 25-23 scores to force a deciding fifth set. The Aggies and Cougars were tied at 13 points and the Aggies won the final two points of the set including the game clincher on a service ace.

Lindsey Yon had a team high 14 kills for the Aggies, Whitney Woods recorded 13 kills and Krista Altermatt had 12 kills. Yon and Altermatt also had 14 and 12 digs respectively to record a double-double. Krystal Torres had 22 digs for the Aggies.

Houston's Barbara Freitas had a match high 17 kills on 26 swings while recording just two attack errors for a .577 hitting percentage.

The Aggies' victory improves their record to 4-2 on the season and they now turn their attention to #4 Texas who defeated Utah 3-0 in the match prior to the Aggies' match. The Aggies and Lonhorns will face each other at 7:00 p.m. in the Pan American Center on Saturday night.
