Eagles host North Alabama Tuesday
EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana volleyball team completes its four-match homestand Tuesday at 5 p.m. when it hosts the University of North Alabama at the Physical Activities Center.
USI (7-8) is looking to upend a tough UNA squad that has won seven straight matches and enters the PAC with a 12-5 record.
The Screaming Eagles are coming off a dominating 3-0 victory over Saint Joseph's College in which they racked up a .392 attacking percentage, their best clip in two years, and snapped a five-match losing streak.
Senior middle blocker Margaret Buschman (Reynolds, Indiana) had a match-high 12 kills and a .579 attacking percentage, while junior outside hitter Courtney Bealor (LaPorte, Indiana) and sophomore outside hitter Brittani Oliver (Indianapolis, Indiana) combined for 21 kills and a .341 attacking percentage.
Following their match against the Lions, the Eagles will begin a near month-long stint away from the PAC, starting with No. 21-ranked Lewis University Friday at 7 p.m. in Romeoville, Illinois. USI also travels to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to take on the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Saturday at 3 p.m.
