The Mean Green volleyball team play one more tournament this weekend in Houston, as the start of Conference USA games loom next week.

UNT (6-6) participates in the Flo Hyman Collegiate Cup hosted by the University of Houston on Friday and Saturday, playing Louisiana State University (7-1), the University of Houston (7-4) and Baylor University (4-7).  Along with a game with Stephen F. Austin University next Wednesday, these are the last games before conference play starts next week.

“These tournaments set you up for the conference season, if you are setting up the tournaments correctly,” head coach Andrew Palileo said. “This is a good tournament to finish off at and it will be a good barometer of where we are at now and what we need to work on.”

The tournament may be on the schedule next, but the players know that next week is when the games start counting for something.

“I am always looking at conference play because all the time we are looking for the conference tournament,” freshman setter Amy Henard said. “The tournaments are kind of a stepping point to the conference tournament and so are the games,”

This is the team’s fourth tournament of the year. The team will finish the season with the Conference USA tournament.

“We are more focused on conference, because it is a new conference,” senior middle blocker Karissa Flack said.

Playing well in the matches before the tournament can set the team up for conference play.

“We want to make sure we prepare them correctly,” Palileo said.

The Mean Green begins against LSU at 11 a.m.

@spencer_kain: “2020 was a strange year, especially in the world of film, but “Promising Young Woman” is so fantastic, so shocking and so unique — it will absolutely be the film that defined 2020 for me. Believe the hype.”#PromisingYoungWoman is THAT good. Read my full review at @ntdaily! https://t.co/YLPRWZBf5y
