    They're definitely heading in the right direction. I have a few friends who are die hard fans and they said that a European recruit is coming. Care to share some names of incoming freshman who are joining next year?

    bumpsetspike -- Also, there are two remaining available scholarships for 2020. There is a "buzz" (rumored-undercurrent/gossip) that one of Hanna Hellvig's Swedish NT teammates might be in the works. Unfortunately, as with most UH 'rumblings', that may just be some fanatical-homer wishful thinking! We'll see.

    Just reviewed each of our optimal, fantasized, A team starting lineups. Only two differences: Thompson + Larson v. Drews + MBH (both of whom I would have on my squad (and be amongst the first of my subs)). One thing about Jordan: she, to me, is like a 'swiss army knife' of this team. multifaceted & multitalented. Thompson was just raking (killing it) during the Summer before returning to her college. I feel that those seven - with the usual suspects as backups - can win!

    No big surprise in the AVCA Poll this week


    Wisconsin after the win yesterday on 6 . Gophers on 7 and Marquette on 13 after loss Creighton.

    RPI is WAY more important than the AVCA numbers-standings. With a few tweaks (bonus points, conference tourneys, et al) added, it's what the NCAA uses

    Thank you God, now players can finally go to their clubs...

    Agreed!! As surprised as I was with the USWNT's roster for this, it wasn't a major heartbreak, tournament-importance-wise (though the team wanted it/ tried their best). Here's my desired/idealized A-team starting lineup for Tokyo: Akinradewo, Carlini, Larson, Ogbogu, Robinson, Thompson, Wong-Orantes. So there!

    The one which is confirmed, to my knowledge, is Kate Lang, Setter. An incoming Libero - Georgia Via - I think is in 2020. Then....That ever-mysterious Euro OH.

    ** Edit ** OK, in 2020: Katherine (Kate) Lang; 5'10" Setter; Keller, TX.; Georgia Via; 5'8" L; Frisco, TX. (walk-on). And in 2021: Mia Johnson; 6' OH; League, TX.8)

    It’s also in youtube. Type in Je n’ai aucun drolit d’auteur


    H. Tapp’s a-quick is basically nonexistent

    Merci'. So, since Flo covers a TON of NCAA matches (which sometimes are not typically streamed by schools/networks, necessarily), it's good to have options!

    SEMIS: U.S. vs. CANADA


    Set 1: USA 25-17 CANADA


    PS: for those who want to view the rest of NORCECA matches, FloVolleyball (c/o Flosports) is available in other countries seemingly: according to their website

    No, Was only referring to this NORCECA squad: not the entire group in the USWNT gym. Actually, your prospective twelve-person roster is very close to my ideal one! I was a coach; I'm looking at this potential Tokyo team as I might surmise Kiraly would (he is "in his own world" tho'). Start Foluke and I'm with ya!

    'K - just finished a night of following NCAA (US college) v-.ball. Afa this NORCECA tourney, I feel that KK is experimenting, before everything breaks down, so as to allow most of the current squad to (finally) get to their professional teams. One thing I do feel confident 'bout is that this team will not be the one in 2020!

    I think its alright for them to play in this tournament. They barely even played during world cup anyways.

    The point, originally, of a few posters (pages ago) was that the US has some specific players, now on the Norceca roster, who are being kept from joining their pro teams; whose seasons are just starting up. Many international leagues are firing up; some of their marquee Americans will not be joining them until after.

    they should honestly just give it to USA now.
