Mean Green Storylines

In its first Conference USA weekend, the Mean Green flew out of the gates, beating C-USA veteran East Carolina and fellow newcomer Middle Tennessee by a total of six sets to one. The start for the Mean Green in its inaugural season in C-USA is the best start in program history in its first year in a new league (Southland, Big West and Sun Belt Conference).

Lone freshman Amy Henard is ranked 27th in the nation in assists per set (11.05), and she is ranked SECOND among freshmen in the same stat nationally. She has played every set for NT.
