WKU VOLLEYBALL | Lady Toppers One Win Away from C-USA Record

10/06/2017 12:43 PM

The WKU volleyball team is one win away from setting a Conference USA record.

With a win Friday night against Southern Miss, the Lady Toppers would earn their 30th consecutive C-USA win, which includes both regular season and postseason play. No other team in conference history has won 30 straight C-USA games.

“They’re excited about it,” said head coach Travis Hudson. “We’ve had a lot of success over the last several years, and they like doing things that have never been done and those are harder opportunities to come by with the success that we’ve had lately.”

WKU’s 29 straight C-USA wins is tied with former C-USA member Louisville for the record.

“All these teams don’t just come out and give it to us,” said WKU middle hitter Amara Listenbee. “We have to come out and earn it every single night. So, it’ll definitely be something that we look back on.”

Southern Miss and WKU begin their match on Friday night at 7 ET inside Diddle Arena.
