USF volleyball to host Oregon Tuesday

Coming off three wins and the championship of the USF Asics/Powerade Classic, the USF women's volleyball team steps up in competition Tuesday when it hosts Oregon at 6 p.m. at War Memorial Gymnasium.

The Dons (5-1) are on a roll entering the match, having won their last 15 games, a streak that began with the Aug. 25 match against Cal State Northridge in the Husky Invitational.

USF's lone loss came in that tournament, a season-opening 30-21, 30-20, 30-20 loss to host Washington.

The Dons lost the first two games against Northridge, but have not lost since. 

Dons junior middle blocker Carly Babin was named tournament MVP after averaging 4.0 kills and 2.5 blocks per match and having a .429 hitting percentage.
