The Bulls, 12-3 (1-1), continue the road trip as they take on Tulane, 12-6 (0-3), on Sunday afternoon (game begins at 2 PM). 

Here are some quick facts on USF:

  • The Bulls are hitting .226 as a team compared to a .169 mark against them.
  • USF has 12 wins, matching last year’s entire win total.
  • Jac’Cara Walker has 174 kills (3.16 kills per set) and has 7 service aces.
  • Briana Stowell has 528 assists (8.66 assists per set) which leads the team.
  • USF went 2-0 last year against the Green Wave.

Here are some quick facts on Tulane:

  • Tulane has lost 3 games in a row but they are 7-1 at home this year.
  • They are hitting .229 as a team on the year compared to a .152 mark against them.
  • Sophomore outside hitter Lexie Douglas has a team high 168 kills (2.75 kills per set).
  • Freshman setter Taylor Henigsman has 13 kills with a team high 366 assists (5.7 assists per set).
  • Junior libero Kaylie McHugh has 294 digs (4.5 digs per set) with 70 assists.

The Bulls have been rolling this year but they face a tough test in New Orleans against Tulane. The Green Wave, despite losing three in a row, play well at home and will be looking for some revenge after dropping both matches against the Bulls last year. I know Coach Draper will have her team ready and this could be a great chance to get over .500 in league play.
