Game Notes

DENTON, Texas - North Texas has won its last two home matches, and looks forward to returning to the friendly confines of the Mean Green Volleyball Center for outings against ULM and Louisiana-Lafayette this weekend.

The Mean Green has fallen in each of its last five road matches, and will need to make up ground in the Sun Belt standings against the Warhawks and Ragin’ Cajuns.

North Texas has been on the road for five of its last six matches, and looks forward getting back on track in Denton. The Mean Green is 6-3 (.667) at home this year against teams not from BCS automatic qualifying conferences, and the stats are pretty impressive in those nine matches.

Last time against the Warhawks, ULM knocked off the Mean Green for the first time since 1991 with a five-set win over North Texas in Monroe. North Texas got 18 kills and 16 digs from Eboni Godfrey, but it wasn’t enough against a Warhawks team that hit .208 on the evening. Zuzana Markova led ULM with 16 kills. ULM hasn’t won in Denton since 1990.

Down two sets to Louisiana-Lafayette, the North Texas volleyball team’s furious comeback fell just short in 3-1 loss to the Ragin’ Cajuns on Oct. 2. ULL hit .291 against the Mean Green, which committed 27 attack errors. Morton led four NT players in double figures with 14 kills, while Hallie McDonald posted 11 and Godfrey and Melanie Boykins both added 10.
