Volleyball announces spring scrimmage schedule

        FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas volleyball team announced a four-date spring schedule recently.
        Arkansas opens hosting a four-team tournament March 31 in Barnhill Arena. The Lady Razorbacks welcome Memphis, Oral Roberts, Missouri State and Pittsburgh State to the round robin tournament.
        The Lady Razorbacks travel to Dallas, Texas, April 7, as TCU hosts Oklahoma, Texas State and North Texas. Arkansas follows up with a trip to Springfield, Mo., April 14th facing the Bears, Kansas State, Oral Roberts and Tulsa.
        The Lady’Backs will also play April 28 at a site still to be determined.
        The home event March 31 features two courts of matches at the same time with teams playing the best 2-out-of-3 games. Although the matches and statistics don’t count, the scrimmages are an important measuring stick for teams.
        “It’s great to be able to play these games,” said Arkansas head coach Chris Poole. “We practice with individuals in the spring and this is a chance to bring everyone together and see how we’re coming along.”
        Admission is free to the Arkansas tournament.
