Just when it looked like Miami (4-4) was about to go on a multi-game winning streak, the vision faded.
The RedHawks once again split a weekend with a win on Friday against North Carolina and a loss to Oakland on Saturday.
Friday got off on the right foot with Miami and North Carolina both exchanging blows and keeping within one point of each other for the first half of the opening set. Back-to-back Miami kills along with a service ace allowed the RedHawks to pull ahead. A kill from senior outside hitter Taylor Daignault sealed a 25-19 Miami victory.
