After a trip to Niagara Falls on Thursday, the Rebels will face Canisius in the first match Friday at 9 a.m. CT. Later that day, the Rebels will take on Siena at 4 p.m. CT. Saturday, Ole Miss faces Lehigh at 4 p.m. CT and then the Rebels conclude the trip with a Noon CT match against Buffalo on Sunday.
“We're excited about going to Buffalo," McRoberts said. "We’re taking off Wednesday evening when these ladies get out of class, so we can go to Niagara Falls on Thursday, get a little sightseeing in while we're up there.
“With the way the tournament is set up, we’ll have an opportunity to look at some different lineups Friday and make some decisions as we go through the weekend.
NOTING THE REBELS… • Ole Miss returns the top three leaders in kills from a year ago, in junior Nakeyta Clair, sophomore Melanie Crow and junior Ty Laporte. Clair led the team last year with 301 kills, 2.64 per set. She ranked sixth in the SEC with 1.14 blocks per set and broke the single-season program record for block assists (105) and total blocks (130).
• The Rebels also return the “quarterback” of the offense in sophomore setter Aubrey Edie. She averaged a team-high 9.21 assists per set, eighth best in the SEC and tops among freshman in the league. Edie made the U.S. Collegiate National Team and traveled to Minneapolis this summer to train and compete in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships.
