    Currently #1 in the country and on a 10 match winning streak. This team has the talent to win the NC. And we are young. Get out to Galen and watch. Fight On!

    Watched them on PAC-12 Network against Oregon St. Very solid play from a talented group!

    Watched the game against ASU tonight. 25-17, 25-20, 25-15 victory for the Women of Troy. Particularly impressive was Samantha Bricio. Wow! What a server!

    Samantha is a special player. Haley is a great spotter for talent. It will be strange to watch her play for Mexico in the Olympics. Serves are great....I can't get over her angle sometimes when she hits from the right. Phenomenal.

    She hit from the left for most of the game that I saw.

    Women of Troy have a MUCH more difficult time in Tuscon today. Already down a set and losing the 2nd set 21-18.

    Arizona just beat the HELL out of the WOT today, 3 sets to none: 27-25, 25-21, 25-21.

    Don't know enough about the game to know what USC did wrong (or Arizona did right).

    3 straight sets is surprising to an unranked team. It's still only the second loss on the season. Without having seen the match and only perusing stats it looks like we had issues with hitting. Bricio had a poor performance, hitting just over .200 and lots of service errors. We lost by a combined 10 points, Bricio had 4 service errors....that's nearly half the difference in point differential. It would be comparable to a QB going 10-30 with 150 and a couple INT's. Looking at Arizona's numbers, their attack was solid and we didn't block very successfully. I think we finish strong leading up to the regionals at Galen in December.

    The breakdown looks like this.....

    Set 1, 15 tie scores. USC hit .296 with 20 kills. Arizona hit .293 with 21 kills. It's the kind of game where the team who finishes strongest wins. AZ came up with two big plays and our block fell short.

    Set 2, USC hit .306 with 14 kills. Arizona hit .378 with 19 kills. Pretty clear what happened.

    Set 3, USC hit .225 with 16 kills. Arizona hit. 319 with 16 kills. USC actually had an 8 point lead early. The difference? Arizona had just 1 error while the WoT had 7.

    Don't want to take away from the Cats. They played well and made very few mistakes. But the WoT playing their best (Bricio too) destroys AZ.

    Volleyball is a game of errors. So many games can be decided not on what you do, but what your opponent does not do. I've won countless matches by "not hitting out" let your opponent make the errors and you can win regardless of talent and power on the other side. It seems that in this case, the WoT did just that for AZ. 7 hittin g errors and how many missed serves?

    In the new scoring of V-ball also, 7 hitting errors can equal 3 or 4 points in the old scoring of volleyball. I didn't see the game, but when you lose 25-21 in the 3rd set, that could translate to a score of 7-3 in old school scoring. So 7 hitting errors are HUGE.

    Yes. Next weekend is huge for the WoT. We lost to Washington at home and they are currently ranked ahead of us. We play them in Seattle on Friday night. The WoT will need flawless play and very few service errors to win that match.
