Illini Volleyball 2019

#76
Illinois State is a good team, and it was on the road, but there’s no reason we should be losing to them. I figured there’d be a bit of a drop off this year, but it might be much more than I thought.

Lost 3-1 to UCF this morning. Staring down the barrel of a 2-5 start if they can’t regroup against Marquette tonight. :confused:

Got to get setter fixed
Setter isn’t the problem. Brown has done a pretty good job, at least from what I’ve seen. The problem seems to be more bad serving, bad passing, and sloppy mistakes.

Illini get some redemption on the weekend, winning in 5 over #7 Marquette. Came back from down 0-2 again. Marquette is a very good team with road wins over Wisconsin and BYU. At least we know we can hang with top teams when we play well. It’s just a matter of finding consistency.

What a weird first few matches it’s been.

Consistency won't come until our lineup stabilizes. Too much flux so far.

Almost came back from way back to win the 2nd set last night. Could have made the difference in the overall match. Setting needs to get consistent - too many opportunities in that 2nd set to put it away with a kill and what should have been some easy sets just were not there.

The second set was there for the taking until Kuper sent the match point serve long.

agree - i was actually pleasantly surprised we were getting pretty hard serves in during that stretch. Minny was struggling on receive.

you feel me, dog?
Elmhurst
Is Vrankovic injured? Was expecting her to tear it up, but she hasn't played much.

In hers and Beth Prince's absence, though, a nice surprise in Mica Allison as a hitter has emerged. I was pretty impressed with the ferocity on some of her hits in the Minnesota match last week. Not too bad for a young lady who was an all-freshman SEC setter last year for Auburn!
