  • AU's site lists Tori Dixon under the 2022 athletes.... which would be interesting...


    and a waste for THY... I see no reason for them to sign her for what, a couple of champion's league matches? denzz

  • I just realized they have 4 liberos...


    I hope they don't follow what they did last season... (only have 4 liberos)


    There are several good NCAA liberos who could use this opportunity (no offense Kristen or Amanda :lol::lol:)

  • Tomkom is playing... that's so fun.


    It's going to be hosted in Dallas again.


    Also announced... there will be a draft for the NCAA players. I'll have to do more research to figure out what thats about


    https://auprosports.com/read/v…nd-dates-for-2022-season/


    Additional new players will be identified via the first ever Athletes Unlimited Volleyball College Draft, which will follow a format similar to the drafts conducted in Athletes Unlimited Softball and Lacrosse earlier this year. A total of 15 players who will have completed their NCAA eligibility in 2021 will be drafted during a live broadcast on Dec. 17, with the chance to be signed to the league for the 2022 season. The Volleyball College Draft will be streamed on YouTube and Facebook at 7 p.m. ET, and a live watch party will take place at the American Volleyball Coaches Association Convention in Columbus, Ohio.

  • Hell yes! Tell her bring Pleumjit too!


    I already know these college girls are going to underestimate her, but she'll show them up. :box:

    omg can you imagine that?


    we need a catchy name for her.... some setter from Asia doesnt have the same ring as mom from Brazil

  • omg can you imagine that?

    Nootsara is a catchy name :)

  • I got to thinking... I think we'll see some of the NCAA stars stay home and play AU.


    They'll get $10k plus bonuses.... which may be just as much as some of the clubs in Europe can offer for 4-5 months vs 5 weeks in Texas

  • But they said that She is gone play for them only for WCCH. So She can leave after that.
