Quick Hits:
  • North Texas, after getting off to a program-best 9-1 start, has now lost 5 of the last 6 matches. The Mean Green looks to avoid dropping their third straight match for the second time this year.
  • LA Tech is looking for their first Conference USA win this season. The Lady Techsters fell 3-0 to UAB (4-12, 1-1) on the road on Sunday.
  • Junior outside hitter Carnae Dillard looks to add to her nation-leading double-double tally of 12. Currently Dillard is currently in a three way tie for the NCAA lead with Carly Kan of Mizzou and Melissa Morello of College of Charleston for the NCAA lead.
  • The Mean Green is 27-8 when playing at home in the North Texas Volleyball Center since 2012. North Texas looks to bounce back from the loss at home to Rice to improve on a 5-2 home record in 2014.
  • In the all-time series, which began in 1990, North Texas is 5-12 against Louisiana Tech. However, Palileo and the Mean Green swept the Lady Techsters, 3-0, at home in last year's meeting.
