The Tars will travel to Saint Leo to take on the Lions.
The Tars are prepared for their last road dual meet of the year, as the travel to face the Lions of Saint Leo.
The top spot in the Sunshine State Conference standings is up for grabs Saturday when the second-place Tars host 19th-ranked Barry in Winter Park. Rollins is starting the second half of its SSC slate and sits just one game back of the Bucs, tied with Eckerd at 7-3 in league play. The Tars have won three in a row, most recently a double-overtime epic against Florida Southern a week ago. Barry is trending the other way, having split its last four games; beating Florida Southern and Lynn, but falling to Florida Tech and Embry-Riddle. The normally high octane Bucs offense has been held in check the last two games, scoring nearly 20 less than their season average. Rollins is 9-2 at home this season while Barry is 4-1 away from Miami Shores.
After a week off, Rollins is back on the court Saturday hosting Barry to start the second half of its Sunshine State Conference schedule. The Tars played the first half of the SSC slate at 5-5 and sit in a four-way tie with Tampa, Nova Southeastern and Florida Tech for fifth-place. Rollins is 8-2 at home this season and has dropped only one SSC game in Warden Arena on the year. Barry is tied for third in the league standings, two games back of leader Florida Southern. The Bucs just snapped a two-game skid with a win over Lynn on Wednesday and are 1-4 on the road this year. The game features two of the nation’s top shot blockers in the Tars Carly McLendon (53/9th in nation) and Barry’s Kiara Palmer (57/5th in the nation). The countdown to win No. 700 for Tars head coach Glenn Wilkes Jr. continues as the 32-year veteran stands at 695-241.
Rollins jumped from No. 24 at the end of last season, and now sit at No. 16 in the country according to the ITA.
