DENTON, Texas - The final results didn't quite paint the picture for the North Texas volleyball team last weekend, who might have just found their next star player in Rachelle Wilson.

While hosting top tier competition at the Mean Green Volleyball Classic, NT saw the emergence of the possibly the top offensive middle blocker to take the court for North Texas in years.

Wilson snagged all-tournament team honors by landing 19 kills on .370 hitting over the weekend. She committed just two attack errors on 46 attempts, which are the fewest errors by any NT player that had as few as five attempts.

Not exactly a slouch on the defensive side of the ball, Wilson also led the squad with 11 blocks, including eight against UT-San Antonio, which are the most by a Mean Green player since Sept. of 2007.

Already looked to for leadership, Wilson spurred the play of each of NT's other two middle blockers. The trio of Wilson, Kati Dillard and Brittany Brown combined for 37 kills on .314 hitting and only nine errors.

North Texas returns to action at SMU on Wednesday and heads to Rochester, Mich., this weekend to take on Canisius, Oakland and Wright State at the Golden Grizzly Invitational.
