MATCHUP PREVIEW

 

Thursday’s rematch was originally scheduled for Feb. 18 but was postponed due to inclement weather.

 

HOWARD

 

Last week, HU (2-2, 1-1 MEAC) snapped its brief two-match slide after taking down CSU at The Burr.

 

Freshman Jennifer Bolden (Los Angeles) continues to pace the Bison with 39 total kills. Defensively, reigning MEAC Rookie of the Year sophomore Tamar Wells (Apopka, Fla.) and recently named MEAC Defensive Specialist of the Week redshirt junior Ana Williams (Baker, La.) each have 10 total blocks apiece.

COPPIN STATE

 

CSU (1-4, 0-1 MEAC) looks to bounce back after suffering a tough five-set loss against the Bison.

 

Miajavon Coleman leads the way with 66 total kills while Chudear Tut and Jordan Celestine each have 13 total blocks. Monday (Feb. 21), Tut received MEAC Rookie of the Week and teammate Kareemah Hopkins claimed the league’s setter of the week.

On Feb. 19, the Bison overcame a 2-0 deficit to take down Coppin State in five sets (27-29, 19-25, 25-23, 25-19, 16-14) at Burr Gymnasium.

 

Three Bison led the way with double-doubles: juniors Kailyn Williams (Arlington, Texas / 14 kills & 10 digs) and Milexa Cardona (Kissimmee, Fla. / 22 assists & 10 digs) and sophomore Kayla Diaz (Nanuet, N.Y. / 26 assists & 11 digs).
