MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – The North Texas volleyball team couldn’t keep up with Middle Tennessee, which maintained its grip on the Sun Belt Conference volleyball standings with a 3-0 (25-13, 25-20, 25-17) win over the Mean Green on Friday night.
Only No. 21 Oklahoma posted a higher hitting percentage against North Texas (14-14, 5-7 Sun Belt West) this season, and not by much. The Blue Raiders (14-9, 11-1 Sun Belt East) landed 42 kills on .354 hitting, just below the Sooners’ .357 mark back in early Sept.
Alyssa Wistrick led MTSU with 11 kills on .455 hitting, while the league’s leading setter landed 32 assists in the three sets.
The Mean Green countered with a match-high 12 kills from Eboni Godfrey and nine kills on .261 hitting from Courtney Windham. Kayla Saey recorded her eighth double-double of the year with 26 assists and 11 digs.
Sarah Willey, the reigning Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week, landed a match-best 12 digs for NT.
North Texas wraps up this four-match road swing at Western Kentucky on Saturday at noon.
