sweating out the 1st...up 22-16 before winning 25-23

yikes - getting bumrushed in the 2nd: down 6-21 before a service error breaks 7-0 streak in a futile effort and we lose 25-11

3rd is a grinder, win 25-19

drop the 4th 18-25

rolling the 5th up 9-2 on an 8-0 run...win it 15-7

whew.

I'm guessing we're in good shape for an at-large bid should we not win the Sun Belt tournament?

Post Re: Volleyball 2018
my guess is yes, just based on overall ncaa tourney knowledge (all sports). that said, just going back a bit, seems like the last time the sbc had 2 teams make the dance was 2011, and i'm not willing to put in the effort to see what the record/rpi was of whoever lost that title match was - i do know that we were that #2 team last year (24-9/14-2) and 2014 (22-13/15-5). if they lost in the champ match, i'd still be sweating bracket announcements...

i think this weekend was a classic case of a team kicking ass for a big chunk of the season, smelling their own success a bit, and getting smacked down for the hubris. we dominated those teams earlier in the season, and neither should be able to hang w/ us at all, but both took us to 5 and we lost to a team that would be .500 in conf w/o that win and barely over .500 vs d1. that's not coming to play, plain and simple. now, i don't know if we had any injuries, but the box score shows all our main rotation players played all matches, all weekend.

hopefully, this is the proverbial good loss right before the tournament that helps coach get their heads right. i can't stress just how good this team is/should/can be. while i think we only have 1 legit elite player in dewalt, our entire rotation of hitters is very good and seriously deep - 4 hitters w/ 230+ kills, another at 134 and 2 more ~90 (for reference, ut's top 5: 269-205-152-127-108). if they play their game and don't take themselves out (service errors mostly), they should win the tourney.

as far as the ncaa tourney goes, keep your fingers crossed to get sent out of state. barring epic collapse, texas will host and likely be the only host in the state. if all goes according to chalk today, the only teams from tx will be ut, txst, sfa and rice. we have better computer numbers than rice, but they keep getting votes above us...and i have no idea what that means for where either would go. i would hope the selection committee doesn't make an all-texas regional, because that would be stupid.

Middle Tennessee was #45 with a 21-11 record.

29 down, 1 to go....

@ uta on friday night
15-10, 9-6
uta was a tough w at strahan a month ago, taking the 1st 2 from us
they also have some good wins in conf w/ sweeps vs coastal and @gaso

ladies need to show that last week was an aberration and they are ready for the postseason. really want to see a strong start come friday night.

Interestingly even though we had our win streak broken, we moved up to #20 in Volleymag poll and to #25 in RPI.

NCAA will be looking at RPI with a lot more weight than magazine poll, so I like where we stand vs Rice ( #31 RPI ) and SFA )#44 RPI ).

Seven G5 teams ahead of us in RPI, mind boggling that we only 20th in that poll.

Rice is even receiving votes in AVCA poll and we beat them on the road.

Rematch with Rice would be a good NCAA 1st round match-up, it would be nice to get a mid #2 seed and not have the same old UT match in the 1st round. I believe the only time we did not draw UT first round was Hawaii in 2005.

Post Re: Volleyball 2018
i was a bit surprised we moved up in rpi since that values your own w/l as well as your opponents, but all the top teams we've played won last week, and 2 teams just ahead of us last week (mizzou and ucla) both lost...but both lost to high rpi teams too, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

kennesaw state was 19 last week in the mid-majors, but w/ an rpi of 91* and sos of 248*, they don't have much margin for error. glad the voters actually acknowledged that this week, as they haven't been very respectful of our numbers to date... *last week's numbers

nice way to close out the reg season: sweep uta, 15-21-13

that's about as dominating as you can get.

24-6, 15-1


let's go win 3 more, ladies!! :eatemup:
