As the No. 7 seed at the conference tournament, the Mavericks took their underdog role by storm. They upset the No. 6-seeded Appalachian State University 3-1 in the first round, then took down the No. 3-seeded University of South Alabama 3-2 in a five-set thriller in the quarterfinals.

Even against Coastal Carolina, UTA put up a fight in the first set and forced a fourth set before being overrun by the Chanticleers.
