NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Fort Bend Owl - 04-14-2021 02:33 PM

Matches are underway - no upsets in the first four contests. In fact, only one of the four even went into a 4th game.

Pepperdine swept UMBC and faces Baylor in the next round
San Diego sweeps an overmatched TAMU-CC team and now faces Louisville
Missouri sweeps South Dakota and next faces Ohio State
Notre Dame loses a game but beats Army in 4 and now will face Oregon

The Rice match is the final group of the night and is scheduled to begin around 9 pm Central time.

High Point University leads 2-1 vs UCF.
Morehead State leads 2-1 vs Creighton.

First upset-- Morehead State takes down Creighton

High Point and UCF going to a fifth set.


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Tomball Owl - 04-14-2021 05:22 PM

High Point wins 5th set 15-10.


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Fort Bend Owl - 04-14-2021 05:32 PM

Morehead State (the Ohio Valley champs) takes down Creighton (the Big East champs) in 5 and now will play #8 Florida
High Point (the Big South champs) takes down UCF (the AAC champs) in 5 to remain undefeated on the season. They'll play #7 Purdue in the next round.

The other 2 mid-afternoon matches went per form. Texas State beat Utah Valley in 4, and Dayton swept Towson. Texas State next faces Nebraska and Dayton will meet Washington.

It's so tough to gauge if any of these are true upsets just because there were so few non-conference volleyball meetings during the year. I mean High Point is 17-0 on the year and Morehead State is 17-1.

It's still hard to figure out if NC A&T is any good. The only non-conference team they faced was East Carolina, a team that was 1-7 in the AAC (same conference as UCF) and they split their two meetings.

True, by both RPI and Massey they are upsets but not as major as some would think.

9:30pm Central time, according to the advance schedule.

Might they move our match up if there were a bunch of quick sweeps ahead of it?

In any case, I hope our team are fearsome and effective Night Owls tonight. :-)

Hope they took a nap. I'm already sleepy lol.

The VOB is warming up for the game.
They're on the concourse in HRS.
They watch the game on a really large TV and play what would be the usual songs during the times out.
Those not able to join them on the concourse play along, over Zoom.

ESPN3 is showing an empty court and "Due to an abundance of caution, match is currently delayed"

I sure hope that's not the only camera angle we're going to get.


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - dragon2owl - 04-14-2021 09:36 PM

"Due to an abundance of caution, match is currently delayed." Hope it isn't COVID related...

"Due to an abundance of caution, match is currently delayed."


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Frizzy Owl - 04-14-2021 09:42 PM

If it Covid, then it’s cancelled, and they should quit jerking us around and just say so.


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Grungy - 04-14-2021 09:42 PM

The announcement about the game fades into gibberish as they reach the object of the sentence.


RE: NCAA Volleyball tournament 1st round - Almadenmike - 04-14-2021 09:42 PM

And ESPN shuts off the audio as an announcement about the match was made. Turned it back on when "due to privacy issues" nothing else will be said.

WTH??
