SPRING ARBOR, Mich. - The Marian University volleyball team inched closer to clinching a berth in the 2014 Crossroads League Tournament on Wednesday night after the Knights defeated Spring Arbor University in straight sets, 25-16, 25-19, 25-19, at SAU Fieldhouse in Spring Arbor, Mich.

The Knights moved to 10-20 overall and 5-11 in league play to put themselves one match closer to clinching the final spot for the tournament with two matches left to play in the regular season.
