Volleyball fights for playoff spot against Charlotte

Less than 24 hours after dropping its fourth match in five contests, the volleyball team is set to take on Atlantic 10 Conference opponent Charlotte (9-12, 1-8 in A-10) Sunday.

Temple (15-9, 5-5 in A-10) dropped their match against Virginia Commonwealth University Friday night, noticeably lost throughout the match and unable to generate any momentum. Charlotte is coming off a four-set victory over La Salle.

“I think Charlotte is much better than they’re record shows,” coach Bakeer Ganes said Thursday. “They lost some tight matches. I don’t think we can take them lightly.”

The Owls are trying to remain a game ahead of Fordham for the sixth and final conference playoff spot, with a head-to-head tiebreaker against the Rams, and just four games remaining in the regular season.

The match is set to start at 7 p.m.
