"I'm not sure how we [kept our nerves under control]," said Knight, who gets six of her 12 kills in the fourth game. "We just kept on telling each other to calm down, calm down and take it easy. Lots of deep breaths, that was it. There was really nothing to it."
Hoover goes 4-12, 3-11 in league for sixth place.
