If we won our last two we would be 8-8 in conference , not likely to be good enough to get in the NCAA tournament . Hard to believe , but this was USC volleyball's first win over a ranked team since 2006 .

Wow I must say I'm very pleasantly surprised (as I'm sure most are). Even more bitter that it wasn't streamed - guess basketball took up too much resources?

Senior Night vs. Alabama, then off to Auburn to conclude the season. Tonight's game apparently won't be available on WatchESPN , but at least Sunday's will be.


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...111716aaa.html


The South Carolina volleyball team will hold its annual Senior Night celebration Friday, when the Gamecocks host Alabama for a 7 p.m. match at the Carolina Volleyball Center. The senior ceremony will take place following the match, and will honor five graduating Gamecocks: Jacqy Angermiller, Koko Atoa-Williams, Joely Cabrera, Dessaa Legros and Megan Kirkland.

There is also a special BOGO offer on tickets for the match – any fan purchasing a ticket will get an extra ticket for free.

It will be a split weekend for South Carolina, who will wrap up competition on Sunday with a road match at Auburn. That is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. ET start, and will air on the SEC Network+ online stream.

SCOUTING ALABAMA (17-11, 6-9 SEC)
Alabama split last weekend, losing Sunday at No. 6 Florida but winning a thrilling five-set match against arch-rival Auburn in Tuscaloosa. The Tide do have wins in two of their last three outings, but are just 2-5 since Oct. 23 and 2-6 overall on the road this season. With outside hitter Kat Hutson out with an injury since Sept. 10, Bama has run senior Krystal Rivers early and often for offensive production, and she has produced eye-popping numbers that puts her second in the nation in kills (5.75/set) and total points (6.53/set).

For the season, Rivers has 1,445 attacks to her name, just 95 fewer than Alabama’s second-, third- and fourth-leading attackers combined. Despite the heavy reliance on Rivers, Alabama does have a number of other threats on both sides of the net. Leah Lawrence leads the team with 104 total blocks and pitches in 1.62 kills per set, Brittany Thomas averages 2.91 digs and 1.89 kills per set, and freshman Hayley McSparin ranks second on the team with 1.94 kills per set.

SCOUTING AUBURN (14-3, 8-6 SEC)
The Tigers tout one of the most well-rounded offenses in the SEC, with four different hitters averaging over two kills per set joining in with perhaps the most dangerous setter in the conference. Alexa Filley ranks fifth overall on the team in kills as a six-rotation setter, but also averages almost 10 assists per set and has dig averages (3.31/set) that rival most team’s liberos. Auburn leads the conference in digs per set, popping up 15.55 as a team, and wears down the opposition with an offense that doesn’t lean on any one player in particular.

For 2016, Auburn has played in 27 matches, and nine of those have gone five sets with another nine going four. On defense, the Tigers don’t have a particularly imposing block (averaging just 1.71/set), but keep the ball alive thanks to libero Jesse Earl (5.14 digs/set). On offense, sophomore Breanna McIlroy averages 3.09 kills per set, and thanks to the strong passers for Auburn, middle blockers Gwyn Jones and Breanna Barksdale are second and third on the team in kills, combining to average 4.77 per set through the middle.

SENIOR SALUTE
The Gamecocks will bid farewell to five seniors, honoring them on Nov. 18 against Alabama. Jacqy Angermiller, Koko Atoa-Williams, Megan Kirkland and Dessaa Legros are all four-year members of the program who have combined to play in over 400 matches, and Joely Cabrera came to Columbia from junior college in 2015. The group is leaving Carolina on high notes, as Kirkland is averaging new career highs in assists and digs, Atoa-Williams in digs per set and aces, Angermiller and Legros are each hitting well above their career averages, and Cabrera is averaging 1.68 digs per set as a defensive sub.

Default Re: ***Volley Girl - 2016 Volleyball Season***

I have to apologize . I thought Auburn concluded the season but then I realized I have two home tickets left and we have four games remaining instead of two . So if we could somehow win out we would wind up 10-8 in conference . Probably still not good enough to make the NCAA tournament , but maybe it would get us into the conversation .
Anyway , good luck to the girls on senior night vs Alabama . I'm going to basketball but I may sneak out a little early and try to catch the end of the VB match .

Oh well, I was going by the article saying we "wrap up competition on Sunday with a road match at Auburn." Indeed there are two more games; hopefully good results and a surprise NCAA bid

In set one we blew a 21-16 lead and three set points before losing 28-26 . Set three we fell behind 9-1 , pulled to within 3 at 22-19 and lost 25-22 . Mikayla Shields with 16 kills but she didn't have a lot of help .
They had senior festivities after the game . I wonder what that's like after a loss ? Alabama moved ahead of USC in the standings with the win .

Swept at Auburn Sunday . Set scores were 25-20 , 27-25 & 25-14 . Looks like we mailed it in for the final set . USC is now tied for 7th in the conference with Tennessee & Arkansas at 6-10 . Arkansas coming up and then the finale at 5-11 Ole Miss . The schedule was really set up for a strong finish but we couldn't make it happen . Looking at the standings , it seems pretty clear that the top 4 have distanced themselves from the rest and have the best chance to make the NCAA .

Final matches of the season, home today and at Ole Miss on Friday


http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sport...112216aaa.html


The South Carolina volleyball team wraps up the 2016 regular season this week, sandwiching a pair of matches around Thanksgiving. The Gamecocks host Arkansas Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the home finale at the Carolina Volleyball Center, then travel to Ole Miss on Black Friday for a 7 p.m. match in Oxford to close out the schedule.

Fans who attend the men’s basketball game against Michigan at 5 p.m. on Wednesday can bring their ticket stub from the game and get in to volleyball for free. Also, volleyball’s season ticket holders will each get one complimentary ticket to bring another fan to the match.

SCOUTING ARKANSAS (8-20, 6-10 SEC)
Arkansas is coming into Wednesday night’s match on a high note, having won three straight and five of the last seven matches. The Razorbacks have experienced growing pains in head coach Jason Watson’s first season with the program, especially with top hitter Pilar Victoria’s season-ending injury that has kept her out for the year. Despite the setbacks, the Hogs have seen Danielle Harbin step up as one of the conference’s top hitters. The senior pin averages 4.23 kills per set and also pitches in 1.58 digs and 0.77 blocks per set. Arkansas has a strong defense at the net, blocking down 2.29 balls per set, and also has one of the conference’s top liberos with Okiana Valle (4.15 digs/set).

SCOUTING OLE MISS (16-13, 5-11 SEC)
The Rebels lost three key pieces from 2015, and transitioned from a middle-reliant offense to more of a focus on the outside attack. Pin hitters Kate Gibson (3.48 kills/set) and Lexi Thompson (3.44 k/s) have done more than just fill the void, they combine for one of the best 1-2 punches in the conference. Ole Miss also has one of the best attacking setters with Aubrey Edie, and a defense that ranks second in the SEC for digs per set (at 15.31). The Rebs have split their last six matches, and will likely be battling the Gamecocks for positioning in the conference standings come Black Friday.


Wednesday: Arkansas, 7:00 p.m. ET (HOME FINALE) | Live Stats
Friday: at Ole Miss, 7:00 p.m. ET | Live Stats | SEC Network+/WatchESPN

USC drops it's final match of the season at Ole Miss 3-0 . The gamecocks finish 6-12 in the SEC , tied with Ole Miss and possibly MSU (if MSU wins their final match vs Georgia) for 9th place . LSU & Georgia round out the cellar dwellers . Florida & Missouri are currently tied for 1st place at 15-2 .

Wow. The end of the season was a complete trainwreck. They only won 1 set in the last 4 matches. I'm at loss for words.

Actually , after beating Missouri (who wound up co-champs with Florida) USC lost their last 4 matches . And none of those four were vs the teams that made the NCAA tourney . Besides Florida & Missouri , Kentucky and Texas A&M made the post-season .

Yeah, that's what I'm saying...they didn't just lose, they lost all 4 matches badly. Just winning one set.

Not the way I expected a team with 5 seniors to end the season.
