The Greek middles are having a blast in the States! Kathariou is further establishing herself as one of the premier blockers nationally this season, sitting at #3 nationally in total blocks, only one block behind second place… In the match against Marquette University, had 15 kills with 0 hitting errors, a performance that put her on the Big East Weekly Honor Roll! Along her side, Mpampiri and Tontai with 55% and 66.7% hitting efficiently respectively, significantly continue to help their teams. More good performances, so more double-doubles!

Strange is the fact that both of them had 10 kills and 12 digs, with Faki in the match against Fresno State and Hounta against Cleveland State.
