WVB at USC (Win 3-0) - paloalto - 11-24-2021

Stanford women's volleyball plays USC today at 4:00 pm.  Livestream is on Pac-12 TV Insider. 

A mini winning streak going into the NCAA tournament will help with seeding.   USC (#63 RPI) has no realistic chance of making the tournament so they might not be too motivated on a Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving.

Prediction: If Lougeay plays Stanford sweeps.  If Lougeay out Stanford wins 3-1.

Stanford takes the first set 25-22.  Kipp with 8 kills in 12 swings.

Nice serving by Kipp.  Stanford up 12-7 in the second set.

BC

Stanford takes the second set 25-18.  We are playing about as well as I’ve seen us play.

I tried asking my Comcast/Xfinity voice remote for Pac-12 Insider, and somewhat to my surprise it took me right to it. It comes in via a Xumo app that is included in the set top box software.

First two sets was the best Stanford has served this season.  Can they maintain?


RE: WVB at USC 4:00 pm Today - BostonCard - 11-24-2021

I should add, somewhat ominously, that the last time I saw us playing this well was the first two sets against UCLA.  Then Oglive got injured in the third set and it all fell apart.

Yes for this season.


RE: WVB at USC 4:00 pm Today - BostonCard - 11-24-2021

The difference today is that our serving is outstanding, with 5 aces and only 3 service errors, and a bunch of out of system plays for USC.

Yes, certainly.  Hopefully that was self-evident.  In seasons past this might have counted as an unremarkable match.

Third set:  Stanford up 6-1
Stanford up 17-9
Stanford up 17-13

We start right where we left off. 6-1 in the third.

Way to go ladies!

KIPP           22-1-35   for  .600 
BAIRD         14-1-30   for  .433
VICINI          6-0-8     for  .750
CAMPBELL   6-1-9     for  .556

And that’s a wrap on a straight set victory over USC.  We close out the regular season at Cal on Saturday, and then presumably we will be on the road for the NCAA tourney.  It would be nice to beat Cal and end the season on a five game winning streak (WSU, at Colorado, at Utah, at USC, and at Cal).  That would put us at 18-10 (13-7 in the PAC-12) and likely in the top-20.

If Stanford played like this they would be competitive with most top teams in the country. Blocking for points was one notable deficiency.

Kipp was good hitting out of the back row.

Kipp was effective when she hit from the left side.  Maybe next year a possibility would be Kipp at OH and Francis at MB.

0 blocks for Stanford! 3 for USC. Nice win!

The zero blocks seemed so remarkable to me that I checked the team stats back through 2007 [all that's available on Gostanford.  In all that time, we have NEVER had a zero block match!  In 2007, there were two 2-block matches.  From then to now, the lowest were a handful of 3-block matches.  But, never a zero [or even a 1-block] match.

Not sure whether that's a result of good play or bad play, but it's pretty amazing either way...

Now on to beating Kal [and keeping the roll going]!


RE: WVB at USC 4:00 pm Today - BostonCard - 11-24-2021

Yeah, and SC hit for .323 for the match, which is not usually a recipe for losing in three sets, but we hit .408.

There, I fixed it for you.


RE: WVB at USC 4:00 pm Today - BostonCard - 11-25-2021

Well, it would be nice to end the season with a 5 game win streak (as part of a larger, 11 game win streak that includes the last five regular season matches and six tournament matches).
