Volleyball: S.F. Austin sweeps UNT

Comments () A Text Size

NACOGDOCHES — Shelby Tamura shattered her own Sun Belt season-high mark for digs in a three-set match, but the North Texas offense was stuck in neutral while getting swept by Stephen F. Austin 25-23, 25-23, 28-26 on Wednesday.

Tamura posted 27 digs against the Ladyjacks (19-9), which topped her 21-dig outing in August against Houston Baptist for the best in the league in 2012. The junior owns four of the top five outings by an SBC back-row player in a three-set match.

The Mean Green (20-11) hit just .065 as a team. Carnae Dillard was the lone bright spot with 13 kills and 18 digs.

The third set featured nine lead changes, and the eighth one saw UNT take a 26-25 edge thanks to a Dillard kill. SFA was able to rebound with a pair of kills to steal the set and seal the match.

The Mean Green has one final SBC road match at 1 p.m. Sunday at Louisiana-Monroe. UNT will host its senior weekend Nov. 9-11 when it takes on Arkansas State and Arkansas-Little Rock for a chance at winning the Sun Belt West Division.
