  1. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I don’t expect De Goede to have a good match and I don’t think Kiraly will be able to execute the slide very well. My prediction of what adjustments USC will make. I hope Igiede has a big game, and and OH not named Van Sickle shows up. We need the passing and setting to improve tonite. I hope for another big win.

    • it’s why the play the game. We’ll have to see how the freshmen do on a second consecutive night.
      SC going with their senior setter but their coach said there will be a short leash.
      I wonder how SC will respond.

  2. well, Anna not having a great second night. surprisingly, de goede is…a lot of van sickle’s cross court shots are being dug; wagoner doing everything except making kills; kate came, kate set, kate sat down again; if USC could serve, this would be a different match

  3. Nowhere to go except down. On a positive note, de Goede is a real surprise. Hits powerfully and terminates. Glad to see her play so well

    • That is not what I meant. No need to be so negative. Setter had few choices. Van Sickle taking a lot of swings. Set to BVS several times during a rally, then predictably went right and SC had a block. Couple of times block deflected and ball went one way.

  4. Not being so negative. Fact is UH blew that set 3. Very very difficult for a young team to come back from such a result. Here’s the issue: too many sets to BVS and USC is keying on her. No one else is stepping up at OH.
