  4. Was at the UST-CSS match… the Liberos on both sides were absolutely insane, especially in the 37-35 deathmatch, where few points ended without desperation diving and heaves over the net and more people on the ground than standing

  5. Jealous!
    It was intense on my laptop. Can only imagine what it was like in the gym. I was watching three or four other matches and that one at the same time. Until the middle of the third set of CSS/UST that is. I muted the others and couldn’t turn away unless there was a timeout. Absolute madness.

  6. ricky…good call on the witt upset. watched on laptop…great volleyball..witt had the better defense. At CNU regional both emory and cnu had impressive wins. Emory match was close until libero ran off a 9 point service run in second set to take charge. Didnt look back after that. CNU middle was too much for salisbury. should be a battle today.
