The Lady Eagles bounced back in the nightcap to grab a straight set win over the host Madison Baptist team.  Temple got 8 service aces to grab the win by set scores of 25-18 and 25-18.   Trailing 7 to 5 in the 1st set, Temple rallied for 8 straight points to take a lead they would not relinquish.  Trailing 11 to 7 in the 2nd set, the Lady Eagles rolled off 11 straight points to seize control.
