RE: Rice VB vs SMU
Just a monster match from Anota, after several so-so matches to start the season; probably her most dominant match in her Rice career: 28 kills (career best), .568 hit%, 5 blocks Add Shore's 8 kills (.375) and our middle blockers had 36 kills in 4 sets.

Opposing teams are clearly doubling up on Nicole, and it's showing up in the number of times she's getting blocked-- way more than past seasons. Our other outside hitters were awful today, which didn't help Nicole's efficiency. Maruska continues to have as many errors as she has kills...and after two strong matches, Ellie was invisible today, so much so that Genny didn't even play her in the fourth set.

7 aces today (4 by Grippo) vs. only 6 service errors. That's more like the ratio expected of elite teams.

Does anyone know the status of Kostelecky? Shore played much better today, but she's not the defensive player that Kostelecky is.

No, they're certainly not Top 50, but they're solid. They swept both Pacific and a perennial post-season squad in SFA, but lost in 4 sets to UNC and got swept by Oregon.

Kostelecky has been suited up and jumping up and down on the sides with the team. So don't think it's serious.

Good to hear. Hope she's back for LSU and SHS next week when I can finally take on the action in person.

4 matches so far, and we've lost the opening set in all four...and in each one we were blown out early. This pattern really needs to stop.

Texas just swept #18 Stanford at home, though two of the three sets were down the wire. Stanford came in 3-0, including a sweep of #5 Florida. Texas had only 11 attack errors in 3 sets, with 8 service aces. Ouch.

We really need to go 3-0 this week (HBU, LSU, SHS)-- all at home, to regain confidence and momentum with Baylor and Texas upcoming.

HBU is now 5-2, having won their last 4 matches in just 13 sets-- 3 sweeps (vs. Lamar, LaTech, PVA&M x 2). The also swept San Diego State, but lost twice to SHS.

SHS is 6-1, with their only loss being a 5-setter to North Texas on the road. They've beaten HBU twice, San Diego State twice, Tulsa and UT-Arlington.

LSU is 2-3, but have played a MUCH tougher schedule than the others. They beat Oregon State and Northern Arizona, while losing very tightly contested 4-setters to both Michigan and Iowa State, and were swept by #18 Penn State on the road. Michigan was preseason Top 25, and LSU was #28 based on votes received.
