Back for more brutal kills this afternoon hosting Kentucky; will be on WatchESPN


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...093016aae.html


The South Carolina volleyball team wraps up week two of the SEC schedule at home Sunday afternoon, hosting Kentucky (10-4, 3-0 SEC) at 1:30 p.m. in the Carolina Volleyball Center. The match will be streamed online on the SEC Network+, with Derek Scott and RJ Abella on the call.

SCOUTING KENTUCKY
The Wildcats are coming into Sunday’s match on a high note after knocking off No. 5 Florida in straight sets Wednesday night in Gainesville - the first time Kentucky has swept the Gators since 1990. The win was Kentucky’s third of the season against ranked opponents, having defeated No. 20 Purdue and No. 22 Creighton in the non-conference season. A big reason for not just the win Wednesday, but the success all season, has been freshman Leah Edmond. The pin had 19 kills in the sweep of Florida Wednesday, and averages over four kills per set for the season to date. Through the middle, Kaz Brown offers one of the toughest blocks in the nation, averaging 1.33 per set, and the junior also pitches in 2.30 kills per set in transition.

Kentucky pulls this one out 3-1 . Tough loss for USC to a Kentucky team coming off a 3-0 sweep of Florida in Gainesville . The teams split the first two sets and USC led 23-16 in set three . Kentucky however went on an 8-1 run to tie it up at 24 . The lead then went back and forth until the score was 30-30 . It appeared that USC had a block to take the lead 31-30 . The Kentucky coach issued a video challenge though (something the SEC is allowing this year) and the official ruled USC brushed the net and that put Kentucky up 31-30 . They got the next point and won the set 32-30 , and then took set four 25-19 .

Yep, pizza got cold late in the 3rd set and we tried hard but couldn't recover. Spot on narrative of the match.

USC loses 3-1 to Georgia . I believe that was Georgia's first conference win in almost 2 years . USC won the first set , but after that their back row looked slow and flat-footed the rest of the night . Georgia had 12 service aces , most of them not really hard serves , just floaters .
The match was played in Athens because of the hurricane . Georgia will come to USC in November . USC will next host # 11 Florida in a free admission match at noon Sunday .

I have noticed that our defensive formations always look like a chinese fire drill. Either everyone is running around the middle of the court or everyone is along the edges with the middle wide open. This has been a regular thing with this coaching staff.

Well after the disappointment at UGA, we get to host #11 Florida

Game is on The U


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...100616aaa.html


The Gamecocks wrap up the weekend back in the friendly confines of the Carolina Volleyball Center, hosting No. 11 Florida at noon Sunday. The match will be broadcasted nationally on ESPNU. Admission to the match is free, but fans are encouraged to leave plenty of time for travel due to higher demands on parking due to football's 2:30 kickoff.

SCOUTING FLORIDA
Florida enters the week ranked 11th in the AVCA Top 25, and comes into Sunday's match with a full week to prepare for Carolina. The Gators boast the nation's top offense, hitting .336 as a team, and are averaging over 14 kills per set. Leading the offense are pins Carli Snyder (3.80 kills per set) and Alex Holston (3.74), with middle Rhamat Alhassan also averaging over three kills per set (3.05) while hitting .412. Alhassan is also a formidible blocker who is averaging 1.4 per set. Joining her in the middle this season is Rachael Kramer, a 6-foot, 8-inch freshman who is putting up 1.22 blocks per set and a .529 hitting percentage. The Gators are 3-1 in conference play, with wins over Ole Miss, Alabama and Tennessee, but suffered a rare 3-0 sweep at home against Kentucky for their lone loss.

Unfortunately, about as could be expected


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...100916aaa.html


The South Carolina Gamecock volleyball team lost at home Sunday afternoon to No. 11 Florida, 3-0. With the loss, the Gamecocks drop back to 13-4 overall, 1-4 in SEC play. The Gators improve to 14-2, 4-1.

Scott Swanson seems to be going into panic mode as the volleyball season slips away . We began the first set vs Texas A&M with senior libero Megan Kirkland on the bench and setter Aubrey Ezell playing libero ( a position Ezell has never played in college ) . Not the kind of changes you make in mid-season . As you might expect , USC was in complete disarray and lost the first set 25-6 .
In set two we went back to the old lineup and lost 25-15 . In set three Swanson benched Mikayla Shields (one of this year's bright spots) . Shields wasn't playing that well and had only three kills . Turner, her replacement had zero kills in 5 attempts and we lost set three 25-18 .
I'm not smart enough to critique volleyball coaching , other than the obvious things I've already pointed out , but it's hard to see this team being able to turn it around .

I'm even less smart than you so I can only guess that being as tough a task as going on the road to play the reigning conference champion, he felt a lineup change would possibly help.



Oh well, onward to LSU on Sunday. Game is at 2:00 EDT and will be televised on ESPNU

LSU is a conference game I thought we had a chance to win when we entered conference play . All bets are off now though . Good thing is , if we are really stinking it up USC fans can always switch over to the SEC network at 3pm and watch the women's soccer team vs Florida .

Passing was good enough so that the setters were able to get everyone involved . Nice well-balanced attack - Shields with 15 kills , Atoa-Williams with 14 and Legros with 13 . Defensively we out-blocked and out-dug them . Probably should have won by a wider margin , but it's a good road win .
