We finished off our weekend at home this evening. We started with Arkansas-Little Rock on Friday. We lost to them in three. We struggled with our defense, both at the net and in the back. That lost us some valuable points. Today was pretty much the same story. We took game one and played well, but then let Arkansas State get a run of points of us that really hurt us in the end. We pushed back game two but it was too late. Games three and four were more of the same. We did not take care of the easy balls and Arkansas State took the last two to win the match in four.
Matches like this weekend take their toll on us. It's really easy to get down as a team. But after the matches we realize that we are still very young. Every game is a learning experience. Our focus is getting better, win or lose. We head to Murfreesboro, Tennessee and Bowling Green, Kentucky next weekend to take on the top two teams- MTSU and WKU. I'll write after those matches!
Thanks again for all the fans that came this weekend. It was great to finally get back in our home gym and get to have everyone there! Thank you!
