Wright State is all right in the Horizon, where the Raiders won again Tuesday and are 12-0 in conference play. 

Central Connecticut and LIU won NEC twinbills, and two players named Ashley led their respective teams in kills. 

Wednesday’s NCAA Division I women’s schedule has just Stetson at Jacksonville in the ASUN, Baylor of the Big 12 at Texas State of the Sun Belt, Villanova at St. John’s in the Big East, and a SWAC meeeting featuring Southern at Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

In NCAA men’s Division I-II, there are four non-league Conference Carolinas matches including (only because we never let a sight gag go), Queens at King.
