The story: The USF volleyball team continues conference play on the road this weekend. The Bulls are still searching for their second win of the season and their first conference victory. On Saturday the Bulls are in New Brunswick, N.J., to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Rutgers is also struggling this season at 6-11, but the Scarlet Knights are tough at home, sporting a record of 3-3.
On Sunday, the Bulls face Villanova at 2 p.m.
The Wildcats are third in the Big East in team hitting percentage (.258), and they are sixth in the conference with 15.43 kills a game. The Wildcats are 6-1 at home and currently are in third place in the Big East standings.

USF is 10-31 under Lessinger’s tenure, but a win or two this weekend would put both her and the Bulls’ records on the right track.

There were stretches where we played […]
