#MGVB Rattles Off Three Straight Sets In Win
DENTON, Texas - In a highly-anticipated local match, the Mean Green volleyball team (2-2) pulled out a victory over rival UT-Arlington (3-1) in four sets (21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-20) in its home opener.
Following a tough first set that saw NT slip at the end, the tide turned during a wild play that saw sophomore Analisse Shannon fly into the bench to save a ball that turned into a momentum-swaying kill for the Mean Green.
