We're here in Richardson at the UT-Dallas Activity Center where McMurry is taking on East Texas Baptist for the third-straight season at the American Southwest Conference Volleyball Tournament. Early in set one, McMurry and the Tigers are locked in a 5-5 tie.
A couple of notes:
• Freshman M.J. Vickers who missed all of last week with an injury is back in the starting lineup, and obviously since she's second on the team in both kills and blocks, McMurry is happy to have her back.
• McMurry has made 10 appearances in the American Southwest Conference Tournament since its inception in 1996. That is the most appearances of any school, however, McMurry has never won an ASC Tournament title
• In order to do this, McMurry will look to beat ETBU in the quarterfinals, a feat they accomplished in 2007 at this very gym in Richardson, but last year, the Tigers sent McMurry home early.
• As I complete this post, McMurry trails 9-8 in set one.
