LSU’s fifth-ranked beach volleyball splits matches against ranked opponents

TALLAHASSEE, Florida – The No. 5 LSU beach volleyball team split its Friday matches at the Unconquered Invitational hosted by Florida State.

LSU started with a 3-2 over No. 15 Florida International but dropped a 4-1 decision to No. 4 Florida State.

“This morning I thought we played well and at times I thought we played good against Florida State,” LSU beach volleyball coach Russell Brock said. “We’re not where we need to be yet. Looking forward to tomorrow and two good tests. It’s a great opportunity to play the No. 2 team in the country and to play a good Stetson team. It’s a great opportunity for us to get back into it.”

On Saturday, the Tigers will face No. 19 Stetson at 8:30 a.m. and No. 2 TCU 1 p.m. Fans can follow @LSUBeachVB on Twitter for in-match score updates.
