LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Sophomore Emani Sims topped her career-high 17 kills yesterday with 18 on Saturday, leading the University of Miami women's volleyball team over Middle Tennessee at the Louisville Tournament inside the KFC Yum! Center.

With the victory, the Canes (9-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) have now won 14 straight matches at a neutral site, winning by set scores of 26-28, 25-19, 25-22 and 26-24. The Blue Raiders of the Sun Belt Conference moved to 3-11 overall.

Sims, along with two other Miami Hurricanes, registered double-digit kills in the match. Junior Taylor Hollins and freshman Alexis Mourning each tallied 16 kills, with Mourning's being a career-best to go along with her five blocks. Sims and Hollins notched five and three blocks, respectively.

Senior setter Nrithya Sundararaman followed up her 49 assists a day ago with 51 on Saturday, a season high. In addition, she recorded two total blocks and 12 digs in an all-around effort.

Junior Ryan Shaffer led the Canes with 19 digs from the libero position.

The Hurricanes will finish the Louisville Tournament tonight at 7:30 p.m. against No. 12 Louisville. Miami is 1-0 against ranked foes this season, beating No. 6 Florida State on Sept. 7.
