SHREVEPORT, La. – UT Tyler setter Reighanna Guzman delivered a career-best 51 assists and four Patriot attackers had double-digit kill totals in a 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-23, 31-29) win over Austin College on Saturday at the Gold Dome.

The Patriots completed the regular-season on a five-match winning streak and with 22-6 record after the non-conference win over the Roos (23-12). UT Tyler finished the match with a .239 attacking percentage with Guzman providing the passing throughout and Brianna Bellehumeur, Samantha Lee, Kayla McCoy and Kaitlyn Budisalovich putting the ball down on the AC side of the court.

Makenna Bartlett led the Patriots with 22 digs, while Kyana Alvarez had 18 digs and Emily Robison provided 11 more. Guzman, a junior from San Antonio, had a previous career-best of 48 assists in a win over East Texas Baptist on Tuesday and also has a 44-assist match against UT Dallas and a 46-assist performance against Centenary on her resume in the past two weeks. She would also add 13 digs against the Roos and now has 689 assists this season which is the ninth most in program history for a single-season. The 51 assists are the third most in a single-match by a Patriot with Rebecca Floyd owning that record with 60 assists against Dallas back in 2015.

Bellehumeur led the Patriots with 17 kills and also added eight digs in the regular-season finale, while Lee, McCoy and Budisalovich contributed 11 kills each. Lee led the team with four blocks in the win and hit .292 against the AC defense with McCoy hitting a team-best .346.

UT Tyler, which is now just two wins away from the winningest season in program history, will open the postseason with a noon match on Thursday against Hardin-Simmons at the UTD Activity Center in Richardson.
