CHICAGO - Sophomore outside hitter Aaron Porter (Woodridge, Ill./Downers Grove South) led the way with 14 kills and seven digs as the Saint Xavier University men's volleyball team avenged an earlier week loss with a victory over Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) in three sets Thursday night at the Shannon Center in Chicago. The Cougars (6-13 overall) fell to the Raiders Tuesday night in five sets in Milwaukee, but it was a different outcome on their home court taking the match in just three sets by scores of 25-17, 25-13 and 25-13.

Freshman middle blocker John O'Connell (Evergreen Park, Ill./Brother Rice) led the way defensively for the Cougars with four block assists.
