The story: The Bulls are looking for their second win of the season this weekend as they face conference foe Georgetown on Saturday and Jacksonville on Sunday. In Georgetown, the Bulls face a team that is 13th in the Big East standings. The Hoyas are struggling as much as the Bulls are, having dropped their past four matches.
Jacksonville is coming off a 3-0 loss to North Florida, but the Dolphins are still at the top of the Atlantic Sun Conference. The Bulls are 25-15-1 in the long series against the Dolphins.
The Bulls will be looking for anything positive this weekend. The Bulls have not won a game in four matches and have been shut down completely by the likes of Rutgers, Villanova and Florida A&M. The Bulls’ last victory came Sept. 16 against UCF.
Keep an eye on: Michelle Stalbaum. Stalbaum is coming off a good game against Florida A&M, in which she logged a hitting percentage of .357, enough to lead the team in that game. The sophomore outside hitter also chipped in 13 kills for the 24th double-digit-kill match of her career.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
