Interesting final Saturday but showed that experience is key, which proved the difference in Set 2.
A very good run by BYU. Both Hamson and Robins-Hardy go back to basketball Monday.
As others have mentioned PSU libero Gonzalez was great, 16 digs, but Courtney had a great all around game with 11 kills, 14 digs, 5 blocks.
In case you missed the all-tourney team: Penn State: Franti, Hancock, Courtney (MVP); BYU: Gray and Hamson. Stanford: Howard. Texas: Ogbogu.
Think the Wahine are in good shape for 2015 and 16 with the incoming recruits. But we’ll have to see how the newcomers transition to DI.
It would be nice if UH would put in for a regional for 2016 but with the chaos going on, don’t know if it will happen. Was told they only put in for a final four every 10 years but when they didn’t get it in 2009 they didn’t pursue any other year. Weird but is anyone supprised?
On another note, VolleyShots is taking a break for the holidays and for some upgrades. Will be back once the upgrades are complete.
Happy holidays and hauoli makahiki hou.
