    Dissapointed Dalton didn’t make the all tournament team, he’s been playing fantastic, filling in nicely for Hendrik and then some.

    new thread up for Monday
    Warriors still No. 4 in poll
    2. Solbrig played well but they picked by position. Worsley was the top setter.
    Brandon Greenway, Charleston the apparent winner. kind of surprising
    Greenway finished with both a match-high 13 kills and 13 digs along with four blocks in a sweep against Erskine on Saturday. He also had eight kills and a match-high six blocks in a four-game victory against Limestone on Friday.
    This was van Tilburg’s numbers
    had a match-high 14 kills on a .407 attack percentage as No. 4 Hawai’i defeated No. 13 Grand Canyon on Sunday. He also had eight kills while hitting .583 in limited playing time to help Hawai’i beat Barton in four games on Saturday.
