Mean Green Storylines:
• The Conference Tourney Is Not Enough
North Texas clinched a spot in the C-USA volleyball tournament with its win over Tulane on Nov. 3. With two matches remaining, the Mean Green can still earn a bye in the C-USA conference tournament by winning out against Florida Atlantic and FIU. It is tied for fourth place in the conference (top four teams receive byes) and is in a tie with Middle Tennessee, a team NT beat earlier this season and, therefore, owns the tiebreaker over.
• Nobody Does It Better
North Texas, with its wins over Tulane and UTEP, is riding its second four-game win streak of the season. Now is the right time for the Mean Green to catch fire as it well need to take the final two matches to ensure a bye.
