Up 2-0 at the break, all Lamar University volleyball needed was one more set win to lock a spot in the Southland Conference Tournament, but Incarnate Word flipped the script at the intermission to down the hometown Cardinals 3-2 (25-21, 37-35, 20-25, 23-25, 11-15) at McDonald Gym on Nov. 19.

Becker, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 92, served as an officer and nurse during World War II.
