DeLong also recorded her third straight double-digit kill match, finishing with 10. She added 16 digs for her second double-double.
Freshman Karlee Lursen recorded her second collegiate double-double with 10 kills and 13 digs.
Senior Molly Davis recorded a match-high 20 digs.
Barth, Southeast's setter, handed out a match-high 54 assists and chipped in 11 digs for her second double-double.
Southeast downed host Memphis 26-24, 25-20, 25-18 earlier Saturday.
