We win another close one , topping Georgia Southern 3-2 , and winning set five 15-13 . Controversial call at the end , as GSU thought they had a block that stayed in to make the score 14-14 but the refs ruled it out .

Senior Koko Atoa-Williams was tournament MVP , and was joined on the all-tournament team by freshmen Mikayla Shields and Alicia Starr . Starr saw her first extended playing time , coming off the bench and playing in the middle . She's only around six feet and has played outside hitter for most of her career , so she is a little like a basketball small forward playing center . She is very quick though , and is an excellent blocker . Here is a link to an interview with her following the Buffalo win (I think this is probably her first collegiate interview) .

Closing out the non-conference schedule with a tournament at home. Tonight's game will be on WatchESPN, but the Saturday matches are not scheduled for it


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...091516aab.html


The non-conference schedule will come to a close this weekend for South Carolina volleyball, when the Gamecocks host the Gamecock Invitational. The team welcomes in Davidson Friday night at 8 p.m., then plays William & Mary and Gardner-Webb on Saturday.

Fans looking to attend the weekend matches, especially Saturday, should be aware that parking availability will be limited by the Gamecock football game at 4 p.m. Please be sure to plan ahead before coming out to the Carolina Volleyball Center. Admission is just $1 Friday night for parents wearing their Parent's Weekend name tags, and admission is free for all of Saturday's matches.

SCOUTING DAVIDSON
Davidson comes into the Friday night’s match against Carolina with a 4-6 overall record, after finishing its home tournament 2-1 overall last weekend. The Wildcats have faced four common opponents with South Carolina, losing to Winthrop and College of Charleston and beating Wake Forest and Furman. Similar to the Gamecocks, Davidson’s offense is well-balanced, with six different players averaging at least 1.5 kills per set. Leading the attack has been back-row setter Mason Rooney (2.03 kills, 4.54 assists per set), while Ciara Cockrell paces the team in kills per set (2.44). Davidson’s biggest strength is its blocking, where it holds a nearly 2-to-1 advantage in blocks per set on the opposition (2.88 to 1.49), led by Emily Franklin’s 1.41 blocks per set and 12 solo blocks.

SCOUTING WILLIAM & MARY
William & Mary had a three-match winning streak end Tuesday night against VCU, but the Tribe still come in to the weekend with quality wins over Clemson and Charlotte already on the resume. The team has been battle-tested early on this season, with four five-set matches already through the first 10 matches. Four different players average well over two kills per set, led by freshman pin Casey Foote’s 2.95 average. On the other side of the attack, fellow outside hitter Sydney Biniak averages 2.88 kills. While the Tribe doesn’t pose the strongest block, it more than makes up for it with a back-line defense that has six different players averaging at least two digs per set, led by Sara Zumbach (4.04) and Gabrielle Pe (3.22).

SCOUTING GARDNER-WEBB
The Bulldogs are 7-3 overall heading into the weekend tournament, with wins in five of the last six matches. The defense has been stout for G-W, as it has held opponents to just a .149 hitting percentage this season. One key factor to that has been libero Emma Milstead, who is posting an average of 5.65 digs per set. On the attack, seven different players average at least 1.50 kills per set, with pins Taylor Lillard (2.62) and Nicole Celarek (2.33) leading the way. The offense runs a two-setter offense, led by Amanda Sahm (5.73 assits/set) and Tinsley Fain (4.34).

just to repeat , it's free admission to Saturday's matches . For those parking in the CLA lot , come on over . USC vs William & Mary starts at 1pm . Should be over in time to catch the shuttle bus to the football game . That's what I'm counting on anyway .

Hopefully not a brutal 5 set match with each one (including the 5th) requiring 30+ for the winner

USC with a surprisingly easy 3-0 sweep of Davidson . Gamecocks played well . Great serving by Aubrey Ezell & Emma lock , 19 kills by Mikayla Shields , and Alicia Starr with 4 solo blocks and a couple of block assists .

USC won two more matches Saturday , finishing the non-conference portion of their schedule 12-0 . First was a 3-1 win over a very pesky William & Mary team . W&M did a great job digging and keeping the ball off the floor . There were lots of long rallies , and in set three and to some extent set four I thought we got a little impatient to get the match over and made some unforced errors . We managed to pull out set four in the end though .

Saturday night was 3-0 win over Gardner-Webb . This match was already over when I got back to the CLA parking lot on the football shuttle bus . Scores were 25-10 , 25-13 & 25-15 so it sounds like we had everything clicking in that match .

Conference play starts Wednesday night in Missouri . It's scheduled for ESPNU and I'm interested to see how we do .

edit - PS - Epps , Legros & Shields made the all-tourney team , with Shields picking up another MVP honor .

Good program that Coach Swanson has set up with the "Big Sisters/Little Sisters" - seems like all sports could benefit from that

Well, that was disappointing . Missouri cruises to a 3-0 win . Scores were 25-12, 25-19 & 25-16 . I would have been surprised if we won , but I thought we would be more competitive .

Once again no preview posted yet, but we host Tennessee tonight at 9:00 with coverage on ESPNU, which explains the late start time
