DENTON, Texas - On Friday the Ken Murczek era of Mean Green volleyball will begin. The 15-year coaching veteran has installed his "middle based" offense, and a new mentality that he hopes will help his troops to contend for the Sun Belt West Division title.
The Green Gang's Stephen Howard had a chance to catch up with Murczek and veteran transfer Kristin Petrasic, a Carrolton native who excelled at Central Florida. They feel their squad is ready for the challenges of the 2010 season.
