SIOUX CITY, Iowa--By their own admission, Briar Cliff has beaten the teams they should beat this season and lost to the teams they should lose to. In fact, only three of their fifteen losses this season have come to unranked teams.
If this trend continues this week at the NAIA volleyball championship, it could be a rough week for the Chargers.
Their opening-match opponent is consensus number one, and undefeated, Texas at Brownsville, a team that swept Briar Cliff back in September.
But, that familiarity with Texas and the underdog role is one the Chargers are embracing. Because of it, they can play loose, have fun, and try to play David against Goliath.
The Chargers and Texas at Brownsville open on Tuesday at 1 PM.
