Falcons to focus on fundamentals needed to return to win column

The BG volleyball team will head back on the road Thursday as they face off against Central Michigan, which is 7-11 on the season.

This is one of two road games BG will play this week, as they will also face Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

BG is 3-8 outside of the Stroh Center, but head coach Danijela Tomic is optimistic the team will get past that barrier and pick up some more wins on the road.

“We [just] need to get over the hump and get a little boost of confidence,” Tomic said.

The 3-0 victory over Kent State helped the team’s confidence, but that was just one game and BG needs to find a way to replicate that performance, as they have struggled this season.

This year, BG has been outscored by all of its opponents 893 to 745, in addition to having a lower team attack percentage of .161 compared to their opponents who had an average attack percentage of .214.

Still, coach Tomic is not worried about the numbers and is more focused on what the team needs to do in order to get on the winning side.

“We have to serve receive really well in order to run the offense,” Tomic said. “[Our] serve receive is becoming more steady, but we are focusing on the improvements that we are making.”

BG is also looking to impact player sophomore Jelena Sunjic to help give the team a boost after being out for so long from injury. Sunjic was named to the six-person preseason All-MAC East team.

But it will take more than one player to get the team the victory, Tomic said.

“It [is] not only Jelena,” Tomic said. “We cannot win with one player; we need to do it together as a team.”

BG is looking for its second conference win, as they are currently 1-5 in Mid-American Conference play and 4-14 overall on the season.

The team will begin its battle with the Chippewas Thursday at 7 p.m. in McGuirk Arena, where Central Michigan is 1-6 overall at this point in the season.
