RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets return to a lot of sloppy play in the 4th and Akron takes it 25-21. Going to a 5th.

The crisp, consistent Rockets came out for set 5, and they take the decider 15-9.

Thomas with 13 kills, Vidourek & Kleespies with 10 a piece. Vidourek with 5 blocks. Leonard with 22 digs.

Good stuff. Thanks for the updates.

After an up and down start to the 1st set, Rockets settle in and finish strong, taking set 1 off of NIU 25-19. Annie Beasley with 5 kills and hitting 0.833 - Wow.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
NIU setter goes down in the 2nd set, seemed in a lot of pain, maybe a shoulder. NIU leading by 4 in the 2nd, could be a turning point.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets came back to tie it in the 2nd, 19-19, but NIU went on a nice run to end the set and take it 25-22. Tied at a set apiece.

NIU's setter did eventually come back into the match, so that gave them a spark at the end of the set.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets have another inconsistent, and mistake-ridden set 3, and lose it 25-23. When the Rockets are crisp and in sync they can look so good, and then there will be a stretch of points where they have trouble receiving serve, bad sets, service errors, etc. To be fair, NIU has upped their game too, but if the Rockets played like they can, this match could be over already. Need to put it together again in set 4.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets could never put it together in set 4, and lose it 25-17. Not a good performance tonight. Quck turnaround to play a really good WMU team tomorrow, so not much time to get things fixed up.

Rockets have split the 1st 2 sets against 1st place WMU. Playing a bit better than yesterday. Need to keep it up to close out this one.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Rockets took the third with a lot of help from WMU errors. Then the Rockets sprinted out to a 9 point (yes 9) lead in the 4th. Not wanting to have a set without drama, WMU closed it to within 2 at one point, but the Rockets made plays at the end to take it 25-21. Beasley & Vidourek led the Rockets with 12 kills apiece. Beasley also added an incredible 10 blocks.

Amazingly, the Rockets have now defeated the 2 best teams in the west, WMU and Ball State, but lost to all the west bottom tier teams, including NIU who only has 2 other wins all season. What a roller coaster.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
Beasley has been outstanding this season.

As I recall, her twin younger sisters have both verballed to UT for 2018, and that one or both of them have broken school records that Annie set in HS.

RE: UT Volleyball 2017
According to live stats, Rockets have defeated OU, @ Athens in 5 sets.

Rockets were up 2 sets to 1, but OU came back to take the 4th and ran out to a lead in the 5th, but the Rockets came back and won in extra time 19-17. Rockets got a lot of help from OU with 36 errors. Seems to be a far cry from the OU teams that not long ago absolutely dominated the MAC.

3 Rockets in double figure kills - Vidourek 16, Thomas 15 and Beasley 10. Vidourek had a double-double adding 10 blocks. 2 Rockets with over 30 digs in Leonard and Bakaitis. Townsend also had a double-double with 46 assists and 12 digs.

Rockets move to 4-3 in MAC play.

I line judge HS volleyball in Cleveland area. I wonder if Ava Rauser from rocky river is on their recruiting list. She’d be an instant impact

Isn't OU a bit of a MAC power in VB?

Yes, had a long run since around 2000 thru 2015 where they were far and away the class of the conference most seasons. Went to the NCAAs a number of times and won several matches. Last year they had a bit of a down season and this year so far they are only 9-12 overall, 3-4 in the MAC.
