Volleyball heads across town to Rice for a tourney this weekend

Coogs try to get back on track this weekend in what looks to be a tough tournament. A&M-CC and Rice were both top 100 in the RPI last year while Yale was around #160.

Not really sure what happened here. Both teams were there and starters were announced before they called off the game. Rice and Yale played their scheduled match though. Strange situation.

Friday’s Match Ruled No Contest
Houston returns to action with two matches Saturday

Due to unforeseen circumstances, both Houston and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi mutually agreed not to play Friday’s scheduled volleyball match.

The NCAA has ruled the match be called a no contest.

Bad day for the Coogs and 2 bad weekends in a row. Things aren’t looking good heading into conference play.
