The Lady Red Wolves will be back at home this weekend as the team faces North Texas Friday night and Louisiana-Monroe on Sunday.

ASU, 1-1 in the Sun Belt Conference, has taken no time off preparing  for yet another weekend of conference play. “We have had two days of practices that have been really good focussing on those weaknesses,” Rehr said.

The Red Wolves defeated North Texas in the 2011 season, but was defeated by the Mean Green in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

With North Texas leading (2-0) in the SBC West division, ASU will have to find a way to stop Carnae Dillard, a freshman outside hitter.     
Dillard notched a match-high 21 kills over Louisiana-Lafayette. North Texas holds a .234 attaching average.

“It is a very tough North Texas team coming in they are picked to win our side, so it is a matter of making sure we have the right mind set and game plan put in place,” Rehr said.

The Red Wolves will host end the weekend with a match against Louisiana-Monroe on Sunday.

“We are prepared for Monroe, the are an unorthodox team that does things a little bit different than everyone else, so it will be preparing the girls for the change,” Rehr said.

For now ASU is focusing on the match up against North Texas taking one game at a time.

The Lady Red Wolves will play North Texas on Friday at 7p.m. and Louisiana-Monroe Sunday at 1pm. Both matches will be played at the HPESS.
