No streaming of today's game, but the Rockets must have played much better, beating Marshall in 4 sets. Alt led the Rockets with 17 kills.

Rockets head into MAC play at 9-3

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
Rockets opened the MAC season tonight, and well... that was an hour and a half of my life I won't get back. They loose in straight sets to 0-11 Ohio. Yes, they were 0-11. Now, they played a tough schedule, but only won 8 sets in 11 matches. But tonight the Rockets made them look like they were 11-0. No chemistry at all on the team. Error after error. Bad set after bad set. Poor defense. Not really much of anything positive to say at all. If this is how they play the rest of the season, they may not win a match. Sad. OU looked to be so much better coached, despite their record.

Yeesh...that's not confidence inspiring...

Well, surprisingly, UT came back today for the 2nd match and beat OU in 3 sets. Might have to watch the replay of that to see how they turned it around from last night.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
Strange evening at Savage as the Rockets beat Kent in straight sets, two of the sets not being close. This despite the Rockets hitting an anemic .087 for the match, and Alt hitting negative (-.138). Kent looked all out of sorts for large parts of the match and hit negative as a team (-0.048). Strange. But a win is a win I guess. At least the Rockets defense did look better than the match I saw against OU last week.

Uluave led the Rockets with 11 kills. No one else had more than 5.

Oh, and tonight they were back to playing a 5-1, with the freshman Redmond the full-time setter. They will do it again tomorrow at 3 PM.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
Rockets beat KSU again today, again in straight sets. They are now 3-1 in conference play.
Statistically at least, they played better today, hitting .229 Alt had 11 kills, and Vance 10.

Strange schedule next week, as they play @ Buffalo on Friday, and @ Akron on Saturday.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
What a difference a couple weeks make, as the Rockets just ran over Buffalo tonight in 3 sets. By far the best performance the team has put on this season. Hit a scorching .385 as a team for the match. And they did it without starting MB Olivia Vance, who didn't seem to be present. Taylor Alt led the Rockets with 14 kills, Sina Uluave had 11.

UT is now 4-1 in the MAC.

Rockets have a quick turnaround to travel from Buffalo to Akron for a 5PM match tomorrow.

Wiped out Akron, play WMU for first in the West. Best start ever for a UT team.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
Rockets still a work in progress, as they lose to 1st place WMU in 5 sets.

Rockets came out playing really well and won the 1st 2 sets, and were up midway through the 3rd. But at that point, it was like a switch flipped and the Rockets started to make numerous errors, and WMU started to get their legs together. WMU cam back and won set 3, and the Rockets looked really bad in set 4 which WMU won easily. Set 5 wasn't much better, as WMU closed it out 15-9. WMU is probably the 2nd best team in the MAC, behind BG, so it was good to hang with them, but there was an opportunity to put WMU away and they did not take it. Rockets were playing without their #1 MB again in Olivia Vance, who was dressed, but not expected to play until next week.

Taylor Alt had a big match with 26 kills. Ryan Jaqua passed 1000 career digs during the match. These two teams will do it again tomorrow.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
Well, since football is not worth watching, thank goodness for volleyball. Rocket beat WMU in 4 sets today. Alt had another 20+ kill match.

Rockets move to 6-2, good for 3rd place in the west, but 4th overall, with the west being the much stronger division this year so far.

RE: UT Volleyball: 2021
In a rare Tuesday night matchup, the Rockets lost @ 1st place Ball State in 4 sets. Rockets won the 1st easily, and BSU returned the favor in the 2nd. Rockets built up a big lead in the 3rd, going up 22-16 but then had a huge breakdown and ended up losing it 26-24, and they could never get things back in gear in the 4th.

Alt had another 20 kill match, but also hit a ton of errors. BSU looked really good for the most part, so other than that collapse at the end of the 3rd, it seemed more about BSU playing well than UT playing poorly.

Rockets split a pair of matches at NIU over the weekend. They are now 7-4 in the MAC, which is tied for 2nd in the west, and third overall.

Next week they get 3-8 Miami, and undefeated BG - both at home.

You piqued my interest . . . again!

Friday’s match at 6 pm (ET) will be on ESPN+ with Saturday’s, also at 6 pm, will be on ESPN3.
