 Baker still led 22-19 when Risen took a tumble and collided with a teammate bruising her right knee. Temporarily sidetracked by Risen's injury the Gators allowed the Jaguars to finish off the set with a 6-1 run to take the set.

"We had a hiccup there in the second game," Kerrell said. "Any time you have one of your captains, setters and outside hitters (Risen) go down it kind of throws everybody out of their rhythm a little bit. They were fine once they saw she was fine and everything."

Reassured Risen was OK, it didn't take long for the Gators to regain their focus in set three.

Baker roared to an 11-3 lead and never looked back.

Wadsworthand Linzy sparked the big run. Wadsworth had four aces and Linzy and Black had kills.

Baker led 13-6 when Linzy took over in serve as the Gators scored 12 straight points to finish off the set.

The fourth set was almost anti-climatic.
