Lewis player to watch: All-American outside attacker Ryan Coenen has a nation-best 4.47 kills per game average and has at least 20 kills in three matches this season.
Loyola player to watch: Loyola is undefeated this season when outside attacker Cole Schlothauer is on the court and not sidelined with an injury. Schlothauer is in the nation’s top 15 averaging 3.88 kills per game, including having a match-high 20 kills in a victory against Ball State on Saturday.
Quick breakdown: The MIVA regular season championship and home court advantage throughout the conference tournament is at stake as No. 5/3 Lewis travels for a two-match series against No. 10/9 Loyola. The Flyers enter the final week of the regular season in first place and need to win one of two matches versus their in-state rival to clinch back-to-back MIVA regular season titles. The Ramblers are in second place and one-match behind the Flyers in the conference standings, and if they sweep the series will win their first conference regular season title since 2014. Both Loyola and Lewis are the top offensive teams in the conference. Lewis is second in the nation with a .338 attack percentage and has hit more than .400 three times during its seven-match winning streak. Loyola is 10th in the country hitting .304, including having a .385 attack percentage in a sweep against Ball State last week.
