Volleyball 2012... FIRST YEAR BIG SKY!

Recommended Posts

The Big Sky Preaseason Volleyball Poll has been released. UNC is ranked #1. UND picked up one first place vote in the poll and ranked 4th.

Here is the link...

The Sioux...er UND is only one point behind EWU for third place in the poll. It would be nice to see UND in the top three, but since they don't have a Senior on their roster this year and they are new to the BSC, fourth place isn't too bad of a spot to be placed. I do expect them to be battling it out for the conference championship and a trip to the tournament though.

What happened to Kaci Miller? She was listed as a junior last year. I thought, at 6'3" tall, she might get a real shot to contribute this year.

UND proves first set was not an anomoly as it pushes #5 USC to the brink of set 2, before losing 25-23. Wow what a showing by our ladies! Go UND!!!

Looks like they are leading in the third set, 12-8. Would be nice to see them win at least one of the sets...

EDIT: Nice game by the ladies but fall in the 3rd set, 25-21. Hopefully they can bounce back against Texas State later today.

Just wasn't in the cards against one of the toughest teams in the nation. UND drops final set 25-21. So sets went 25-20, 25-23, 25-21 for USC. A first year Division I tournament eligible team takes an established VB powerhouse and drops 20+ on them in each set in their first match of the year. It's probably all down hill from here for UND until tourney time, if that's in the cards. Way to make us proud, ladies!

I will be thrilled if we can come out of this weekend 1-2. I will be absolutely through-the-roof ecstatic if we can make it 2-1. After seeing how they played this morning against #5 in the nation, UND should be able to notch a win against these solid teams. Just don't get complacent!

Got the Texas State radio going for the second game.

Set 1: TX ST 25-17

Set 2: UND 25-13

Set 3: UND 25-15

Set 4: UND 25-18

That's a good win for the girls and a nice bounce back after playing USC very tough.

UND took fourth set 25-18! The ladies rolled three straight to take the match. Next up host Texas A&M tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

Congrats to Ashley and the team. They have played well today, and have a big game tomorrow.

Agreed! The Texas State radio guy is clearly impressed with UND's showing earlier today against USC, as well.

If anyone is broadcasting it over the radio, it is not being promoted, so I would assume only live stat updates and video stream are the options for this one.

UND video stream doesn't work for me... I am able to watch it via Aggie TV's 12th Man Network from the Texas A&M site. UND drops first set 25-21.
