After its debut last weekend, the Princeton women's volleyball team will look to continue its fine-tuning when it heads to Hamilton, N.Y., for the two-day Colgate Invitational this weekend.

Live stats will be available for all Princeton matches, and live video (subscription required) is available for Princeton's match with Colgate.

Princeton heads to the Empire State with a 1-2 record after the season-opening Hofstra Invitational last weekend. It will get a good test of its own improvement over the seven-day span when it gets a rematch with Siena Saturday afternoon; Siena topped Princeton 3-2 last weekend.

The Tigers will open competition Friday at 1 pm against the University of Montreal. The Carabins are making their 2012 debut this weekend.

Princeton will take on host Colgate at 7 pm Friday night. The Raiders are 0-7 on the season, though they have played an extremely challenging schedule, including a match last weekend against No. 1 Nebraska.

On Saturday, Princeton will take on Siena at 10 am. The Saints scored a 16-14 win in the fifth set last weekend to hand the Tigers their first loss of the season. Princeton sophomore Nicole Kincade, who earned all-tournament honors last weekend, put up a career effort against Siena; she recorded 15 kills and 10 blocks while hitting .483 for the match.

Kincade currently leads the Ivy League with 1.5 blocks per set, and she also ranks in the Top 10 in both attack percentage (8th, .419) and kills (10th, 2.75). Not surprisingly, two-time first-team All-Ivy selection Lydia Rudnick leads the league in kills with 3.6 per set.

Sophomore Ginny Willis is building off her experience as the starting setter last season, and she leads the league with 10.5 assists per set. She did a good job making an early connection with freshman Kendall Peterkin, who ranks fourth in the Ivy League (and first among freshmen) with 3.23 kills per set.
