Down 24-20 in the third set, the University of Notre Dame volleyball team was just one point away from trailing Virginia Tech 2-1 in a best-of-five Atlantic Coast Conference match. What followed was four straight points from the home team, highlighted by two solo blocks from senior Nicole Smith that jump-started a Notre Dame run that ultimately led to a 3-1 (20-25, 25-21, 27-25, 25-22) victory over the Hokies Wednesday night at Purcell Pavilion.
"We wanted this home court win," said freshman Simmone Collins. "We practiced hard for it and I think it was something we owed ourselves."
