The University of Tulsa volleyball team plays host to SMU and TCU on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29-30, in the Reynolds Center for a pair of Western Athletic Conference matches.

Tulsa will be looking to start another winning streak. After starting the 2000 campaign with 10 consecutive victories, TU dropped its first two conference matches to UTEP and Rice last weekend. TU is 4-0 at home on the season after winning the Dr. Tom Cairns Golden Hurricane Classic.

Senior outside hitter Kristien Van Lierop ranks 17th in the nation in kills per game with an average of 4.95 kills. Senior setter Shannon Smith is second in the WAC for assists per game with 12.85.

TU will play SMU on Friday starting at 7 p.m. SMU leads the series with Tulsa by a 7-1 margin. The Mustangs are led by senior outside hitter Kelly Klecka with a 4.05 kill per game average. Junior setter Tara Hatfield averages 12.90 assists per game as well.

The Horned Frogs have won the last four meetings with Tulsa, including both matches last season. They lead the overall series 5-3. TCU is led by senior outside hitter Amy Atamanczuk with a 4.49 kills per game average. Junior setter Lindsay Hayes averages 11.62 assists per game as well.

After suffering a four-game defeat to TCU last week, SMU is now 8-4 on the year and 0-1 in conference. TCU is now 9-7 overall, with a 1-0 record in the WAC.

Both games will be played on the main floor of the Donald W. Reynolds Center.
