Scouting the Tigers
  • Memphis defeated USF 3-2 (21-25, 25-23, 25-23, 24-26, 15-8) on Friday evening.
  • Earlier this season, the Knights swept the Tigers 3-0 (25-15, 25-19, 25-17) in the opening weekend of American Athletic Conference competition.

"Every year Memphis is one of the late, hard-charging teams," head coach Todd Dagenais said. "April does a great job of figuring out who on her team is best at the jobs that they do, and puts them in the right place. This year is no exception, especially when you take a look at the result from (Friday night's) match against USF. There is something mystical about playing in the Elma Roane Fieldhouse where UCF and Memphis have battled for a long time."
