Scouting the Opponents
All three teams are unranked. No. 8 Florida is 2-0 against unranked opponents, beating both Louisville and UCF in four sets.
The Gators will be the premiere competition of the group. CSUN (2-4) notched an easy 3-0 win over North Texas and a 3-2 nail-biter against Sacramento State. Northern Arizona (5-2), the host of the tournament, is the only other team at the Invitational with a winning record, but has yet to face a ranked opponent. Southern Illinois (3-4) faced Louisville like the Gators, but lost in 3 sets.
Look for this Invitational to pad Florida’s record heading into their next match against Florida State.
The Gators will take on CSUN Friday at 12:30 PM, Northern Arizona Friday at 10 PM, and Southern Illinois Saturday at 12 PM. (All times Eastern Standard Time).
