Missouri volleyball travels to Athens for another SEC matchup

Missouri volleyball looks for its second consecutive conference win when it plays Georgia at 1 p.m. Sunday at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens.

The Tigers have won five of their last seven conference games — including a five-set win over Alabama on Friday — and are tied for fifth in the conference at 7-4.

The Bulldogs are two games above Missouri at 9-3 and the Tigers have a chance to make up some ground in the conference standings.

Missouri is led by setter Andrea Fuentes, who pulls the strings for the Missouri offense and is eighth in the country with 11.45 assists per set.
