Last Team Standing: We’re down to 3

Find out here which team fell out of the running last night.

I’ve also been keeping up with the box scores fairly well, so the Standout Stats page on the right rail should be up to speed nightly in most cases, depending on the availability of updated Web sites.

Live: #1 Oshkosh vs. #14 Eau Claire Friday

The WIAC could be decided at Kolf Sports Center when No. 1 UW Oshkosh (20-0, 4-0 WIAC) faces No. 14 UW-Eau Claire (14-2, 1-1) on Friday at 7 p.m. But UW-Platteville (9-6, 2-1) may have something to say about the WIAC title. Stay tuned.

Follow the UWO vs. UWEC match live (scoring, audio and video available) from this link. Or go old school and watch it in the stands.

Poll: Week 4 released

UW Oshkosh picks up a few more first-place votes and remains in the top spot. Now that we’re into the conference schedules, the poll was pretty static. Wash U is fifth and St. Thomas sixth. Carthage drops one spot to eighth. UW-Whitewater moves up two spots and back in the top 10.

UW-Eau Claire is 14th, Concordia (MN) is 17th, Saint Benedict is tied for 19th and Nebraska Wesleyan is 21st. St. Olaf is still receiving votes.

New pages mean user-friendliness!

Instead of updating them with posts, I made new pages out of the Last Team Standing and the Midwest and Central region conference standings (complete with the biggest matchups of the week). See those at the top of the right rail.

Another new addition is a page with links to live audio, live video and live stats for all Midwest and Central teams that I could find that provide the services (thanks for your hard work, SIDs!).

That’s in addition to the FAQ page, which will be updated when the 2009 Handbook is released. I expect that within the next two weeks.

And there’s the Midwest and Central regions Standout Stats page that has been there all season. To qualify for an entry in on that page, players need 10+ blocks, 20+ kills, 30+ digs or 50+ assists. Check it out to see how your favorite player stacks up with the elite in the two regions.

I hope the layout changes make it easier to find the content you’re looking for. Happy volleyball to all.

Whitewater rebounds with wins over CCIW elite

Two days after dropping a match to No. 1 UW Oshkosh, No. 12 UW-Whitewater (11-4) responded with a sweep over No. 7 Carthage (12-2) and a 3-2 win over Illinois Wesleyan on the opening day of the UW-Whitewater Invitational. IWU (11-4) went into the invite with 10 straight wins and a 2-0 record in the CCIW.

Whitewater plays Heidelberg and Elmhurst today. Carthage plays UW-La Crosse and Iowa Wesleyan.
