Didn't realize there was a thread for this. Thanks for your time, Brahmin.

There is tremendous talent in the US right now. I haven't been paying too much attention to the Pac12, or even the Big 10, but Lauren Carlini, Justine Wong-Orantes, Kelsie Payne, Cassie Wait, Micaya White, Ebony Nwanebu, Yaazzie Bedart-Ghani, Morgan Johnson, Amber Rolfzen, and Madison Rigden could all walk onto the US national team tomorrow and compete for starting positions. I heard Kelsie Payne may return to being a middle after college, but she and Ebony could answer the US national team's opposite deficit-- granted they're decent in the back row. I've seen Ebony play back row a few times, and she's a great, diehard defender, even though she's so tall.

I know ESPN broadcast some of the Championship games. Do you guys know if there is any online broadcasts to it?

ESPN website does, but I think is for cable subscribers only.

Yeah, we have Watch ESPN in Brazil too, but they only broadcast the content from brazilian ESPN. So I was looking for another link for the american one.

Some kind Youtubers upload games, so I would just search something along the lines of "2016 NCAA Women's Volleyball [Team] vs {Team]".

They probably dont show in Brazil because it is not even on ESPN ( the main channel) that broadcast, it is ESPN 3, which is online only. And Im not sure, but I dont think even the final match is on ESPN, it could be on ESPN U ( university), and the website still does not say which channels will be on yet. They show the quaterifnals but Im not sure if it is ESPN , 2, 3 or U.

But the only games that matter are the final/semi-final and some of the quater-finals. They have 72 teams playing in the playoffs, but only very few has chances to win.

I think will be Nebraska vs Washington. Wisconsin vs Stanford, Kansas vs Texas. UCLA vs Minnesota.

Quite a few players on that list are very, very, very far from competing for a national team starting position. At this point, Johnson, Bedart-Ghani, and Rigdon would not even be in the gym for more than a week. How can you list all those names and not Inky Ajanaku or Rhamat Alhassan?!?!?!?!

Nwanebu has the potential but will need better footwork to play in the USA system.
Carlini is a superhero, as is Wong-Orantes.

Actually there are only 64 teams in the tournament not 72. You are thinking of the men's basketball tournament, which is 68 teams.

There are some interesting first round matches, Creighton vs. Northern Iowa, who have played in tournaments together for the last 3 years (I attended one of their matches in Kentucky). USC vs. Hawaii. The second round matches if they work out will be better to watch.

The matches will be broadcast on ESPN's online app in the USA. So the highlights may not be available until a day or two later.

Like I said, I haven't been paying too much attention to the Pac 12 or Big 10, so my list is just a reflection of being a Texan who goes to most home games in Austin, and watches what else he can on television. I'm sure Ajanaku is great, just haven't seen her play. Alhassan was an oversight on my part. Haven't watched caught more than one Florida game this season, unfortunately, but I can't wait to see more, based on your enthusiasm.

As for Johnson and Bedart-Ghani go, I think you should look at their statistics and watch the last few games they've played. No question they could stand on the same team as Akinradewo, Dixon, and Adams.(And Gibbemeyer or Paolini no problem.) Yaazzie has one of the strongest arms in collegiate volleyball, and Johnson is a point machine.

I like Madison Rigdon, and think you're exaggerating, but I concede that she's not as strong as the others I listed. Still, she's one of the best servers in the NCAA, she defends well, passes consistently, and is a smart hitter who loves a fast set-- sounds like a USNT woman to me! (By the way, I'm loving Kansas this year! Their setter, Ainise Havili, is really creative. I saw them play Texas a few weeks ago and was surprised by how little they are. Rigdon definitely isn't 6'0 :rolll: )

Havili is by far the most impressive player from Kansas to me. I like Rigdon, Payne, Soucie, Wait and the puertorican Montero. I hope they will make it to F4 again.
