After winless weekend, volleyball remains positive attitude

The Spartans, (4-2 overall) ranked No. 14 as of Sunday, came into the weekend undefeated and ready to prove they could compete with top-25 competition, which will no doubt be the norm in the stacked Big Ten conference. However, after losing to No. 20 North Carolina 3-0 (17-25, 20-25, 22-25) and No. 19 Duke 3-2 (25-12, 22-25, 25-23, 23-25, 10-15) in consecutive nights as part of the ACC- Big Ten Challenge last weekend, MSU will have to regroup.
