#MGVB Knocked Off By Roadrunners, Gets Bye On Friday
Oct. 20, 2013
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The North Texas volleyball team got swept for the second time in three days at UTSA, bringing it down to .500 in C-USA play.
"Obviously, we are disappointed in how this match turned out for us, but, at the same time, UTSA is a good team and they defended their home court well," head coach Andrew Palileo said. "The bye comes at a good time for us after a couple road trips, and we will get back to work and prepare for Rice."
North Texas was slow out of the gates as UTSA climbed up to a 10-1 lead in the first set. Despite the lethargic start, the Mean Green fought back and nearly caught the Roadrunners late in the set before UTSA closed it out, 25-23.
The first set was as close as North Texas would get to threatening UTSA as McKenzie Adams's 17 kills powered the Roadrunners through the final two sets.
Her 17 kills were the second-most allowed by North Texas in a three-set match this season.
The Mean Green gets a bye on Oct. 25 before traveling back south to Houston on Oct. 27 for a match with Rice at 1 p.m.
