The Knights
The Black and Gold are going into these games with a 21-1 overall record, and 13-1 conference record. UCF is coming off of two wins last weekend against SMU (3-1) and Memphis (3-0). The win over Memphis was the Knights ninth straight win.
With a season-high of 29 kills McKenna Melville also has an attacking percentage of .418. Heidi Bonde had 15 kills on the offensive side against SMU.
Bonde and Melville each recorded 13 kills against Memphis. Olson got 15 digs and 38 assists and Scheer added 13 digs and 2 aces.
The Bulls are entering with a 9-15 overall record and a 3-9 conference record. USF is coming off an 0-3 loss against SMU. Last time the Bulls took on the Knights won 3-0.
The Bearcats are coming in with a 7-17 overall record and a 5-9 conference record. They are also coming off a 3-1 win against Tulane. The last time these two teams played the Knights came out on top 3-2.
We are looking forward to another opportunity to head to Tampa to continue the rivalry. USF continues to be a dangerous team. They had a nice five set victory last weekend. Continuing to be experienced and in some places still young and growing. They have frequently switched from a five one to a six two system. They have forced their opponents to adjust to the different systems. This presents a lot of challenges you don't what you are going to get. We have to be prepared to run our system and stop theirs. This is the close of this era of rivalry, but I'm sure it won't be the last time these two teams play each other.
On Cincinnati:
They are still that athletic team that we thought they would be. Every match and practice that goes by they get a little better. Even though we won 3-0 last time it's not a match where we sit back and relax. They have abilities to score at you from any angle. Along with a good serve to get you out of system. They have all the tools to put together a challenging match and I respect the tools that they have and utilize.
