At the midpoint of the Conference USA volleyball season, the Houston squad sits at 3-3 with their upcoming road trip taking the Cougars to Wisconsin and Illinois for matches against Marquette and DePaul.

Houston (4-14, 3-3) currently holds the seventh spot in the C-USA standings while the Golden Eagles (13-5, 3-2) and Blue Demons (8-13, 1-4) weigh in at No. 6 and No. 12, respectively.

First up for Houston is Marquette on Friday, whom the Cougars own a 9-2 all-time mark against. However, the Golden Eagles defeated Houston last season in a five-game thriller at Hofheinz Pavilion, and prior to last season's loss, Houston had won the last four meetings between the two teams.

The Golden Eagles, led by junior outside hitter Theresa Coughlin and senior middle blocker Erica Heisser, come into the match in Milwaukee riding a four-game winning streak that includes three C-USA victories.

Coughlin is registering 4.07 kills per game, with 240 on the season to go with her 169 digs, Heisser has 205 kills, is hitting .279, averaging 3.47 kills per outing and leads the team with 66 blocks on the year.

Saturday, the Cougars travel to Chicago to face DePaul. All-time against the Blue Demons, Houston holds a 7-3 advantage that includes wins in the last four meetings between the two schools.

As of late, the Blue Demons have struggled, winning one match in their last eight outings. During that span, DePaul is also 8-21 in games played.

Senior middle blocker Janet Goreham leads the Blue Demons with 268 kills, a 3.53 kill per game average, a hitting percentage of .287, 87 blocks for 1.14 stops per game, and is third on the team with 224 digs.

Goreham isn't the only Blue Demon with offensive power, junior outside hitter Many Moorberg is tied with Goreham for the team lead in kills at 268, and 37 service aces, but also leads the team with 45 service errors.

The Cougars jump into action on Friday, Oct. 22 against Marquette at 7:00 p.m. and then take on DePaul on Saturday, Oct. 23, also at 7:00 p.m.
