Lopes began his volleyball-reporting career in 2007, covering men’s volleyball for the Ball State Daily News, the school’s newspaper. He covered the team during its 2008 back-to-back wins against then-No. 7 UCLA and when it was nationally ranked by the media and coaches poll. During the 2009 season, Lopes became a voting member in the media poll for rankings.
