Scouting Report – The University of Missouri-St. Louis Tritons

2010 Record: 14-3, 7-1 GLVC

2009 Record: 21-10, 11-3 GLVC

National Ranking (AVCA): 19

GLIAC GLVC Tournament ranking: GLVC 1

Story continues below advertisement

Last three games: W at Drury 3-0, W at Rockhurst 3-1, W vs Wisconsin-Parkside 3-0

Players to watch: junior Weslie Gaff MH, freshman Chelsea Burkle MH/OH, senior Carolyn Holstein DS, freshman Anna McNulty S

Key stat: The Tritons have been forcing the errors this season as they lead the GLVC in opponents hitting percentage. They’ve also been winning games fast, as 10 of UMSL’s 14 wins have ended 3-0.

Prediction: UMSL comes out hard and fast to catch their opponents off guard. It’s worked for them so far this year and NMU hasn’t really seen anyone of the Triton’s caliber yet this year. The Wildcats aren’t completely out of this one, but UMSL is just too strong for NMU to have any mistakes against. UMSL 3-1 (UMSL, NMU, UMSL, UMSL)
