What to know: A whole lot is at stake for Barton in its regular-season finale against Pfeiffer. Barton with a victory can clinch its program’s first Conference Carolinas regular season championship along with earning the No. 1 seed and home court advantage throughout the upcoming conference tournament. A loss, though, and Barton will drop to the No. 3 seed behind Pfeiffer and Erskine will win the conference regular season title. The Bulldogs have won eight of their last nine matches, including rallying from a one-game road deficit to beat King on Friday. Outside attacker Pierrer Tang-Taye in the victory had a season-high 21 kills and was named the Conference Carolinas Player of the Week. Tang-Taye leads Barton and is in the conference’s top 10 with a 3.55 kills per game average. Barton in its last two matches made a line-up change moving freshman Aleksa Brkovic from outside attacker to setter. Brkovic is tied for the nation’s lead with a 0.60 aces per game average. He also guided Barton offense to a .338 attack percentage in a sweep against Lees-McRae on Saturday. Pfeiffer, the defending-Conference Carolinas champions, can earn a share of the regular season title and the No. 2 seed for the conference tournament if it beats Barton. The Falcons lead the Conference and are seventh in the nation with a .308 attack percentage — .007 percentage points ahead of the Bulldogs. Middle attacker Evan Blair has both a conference-best 1.22 blocks per game average and a .446 attack percentage, while middle attacker Fabio Diniz is third in the conference hitting .417. Outside attacker Jonathan Martinez is also among the conference leaders with a 3.57 kills per game average, including having a match-high 23 kills in its season-opening five-game victory against Barton in January.
