National Ranking (AVCA): received votes

GLIAC GLVC Tournament ranking: GLVC 5

Last three games: L at Central Missouri 0-3, W vs Missouri S&T 3-2, L vs Missouri-St. Louis 1-3

Players to watch: senior Emily Levy MH, senior Alyssa Emerson S, senior Andrea Schroeder L, junior Maggie McGovern OH

Key stat: The starting front line for the Hawks of McGovern, Levy and OH Nicci Hartley lead the Hawks in blocks, as Rockhurst is the top blocking team in the GLVC.

Prediction: This will be the first set of the tournament for the Wildcats and NMU has been showing a lot of uneasiness in their first games, but rebounding in the second and third games. It’s been the exact opposite for the Hawks however, starting strong and tapering off, making the second and third game imperative. The discipline of the Wildcats though should help them out as they will grind out their hardest match yet. NMU 3 RU 2 (RU, NMU, RU, NMU, NMU)
