USA NT 2019

  • Whilte the one who is playing in Brazil now?

    That's Wilhite.


    No, she's not going to be a key player for NT. After Tokyo her spot in B team may even be taken by fresher newly graduated girls.

  • she was one of the best players in that C squad they sent to the pan am games, but that team didn't even advance to the semis... OTOH plummer didn't impress at all in lima, she was very slow and couldn't kill the ball...

  • Guys,


    What do you think of Hancock as well as her chance to go to OLP next year? I mean what she is doing at Novara is inspiring. Her serve and attacks from 2 are just so delightful to watch. Has she ever been used under Kiraly?

  • Hancock is the best American setter.


    Hands down!!


    Sorry Carlini

    Hancock >Carlini

  • I like Carlini, I think Hancock is AWESOME, but I agree that Poulter suits Karch's system really well (I don't like the system, but that's a whole other story )

  • She was back up setter for Carli Lloyd at WCH'18. Her best skill is serving but Karch hates jump serves...For setting abilities, Poulter has more skills.

    Why does he hate jump serve when she got a few aces every match??? Yeah I agree from what I have seen Poulter > Hancock at setting.


    I'd bring Poulter and Hancock to OLP. Carlini was ok last year. Nothing remarkable about her.

    Her games this tournament were such joy to watch. I like her altitude. She looks serious most of the time but when she smiles she's such a cutie pie, with a monster serve. And I love it when she spikes from 2. Urgh. But I don't want to wait to see her in the NT after OLP (that is if Kiraly retired and a new coach sees potentials in her, which she has, loads of it)

    Did you see her games with Novara in Italian league when they didn't have an Opp? What she did there was unbelievable, even Chirichella shined with her, it was amazing, so fearless and creative

  • Hancock was a back up setter in VNL 2018 and WCH 2018 for Lloyd.Although her court time was minimal,she shined during a game in VNL (I think it was against Turkey,not the final match,but during pool play in the finals) where she and MBH came off the bench and won the match for USA after they were trailing 2-0.Then this year she participated in VNL for the first 2 weeks,I think,and she was also the captain while Larson was absent.But she didn't compete with the A team for the rest of the summer.After the World Cup it seemed almost guaranteed that Karch would bring Poulter and Carlini next year in Tokyo, however,if Micha keeps up the good work in Novara she could grab a spot,or at least be considered for it.

    The best part of it was coaches spending 80% of their timeouts on how to stop attacks from middle, and it wouldn't work:mirror:

    such a shame she has to play with Arrighetti now
