With No. 8-ranked BYU volleyball team having a dominating season thus far, ESPNW did a story on the Haddock twins (Lacy, Lyndie) and how the death of their father, Quinn Haddock, encouraged the sisters to be an hitter-setting duo.
Quinn, who’s a BYU alum, died in August from pulmonary thromball embolism, a blockage of an artery in the lungs that caused a blood clot to his leg. Quinn always attended up to his daughters' matches, not missing one home game for the twin sisters.
Here’s what Lyndie have to say about her father to ESPNW:
"There's no other place that my dad would want us to be. Me and Lacy, we have a bigger drive now. I think it's motivated us even more. Volleyball has been kind of a sanctuary for me and Lacy to cope, to keep our minds off of it.”
The Cougars (21-1, 10-0 in WCC) are on a 13-game winning streak after defeating Loyola Marymount 3-2 last Saturday. BYU will face No. 18 San Diego Friday (Oct. 27) at 7 p.m. MDT
And finally ...
As the Texas Legends begin their first practice of the NBA G-League season, former BYU great Kyle Collinsworth, in his new hairstyle, talks about his goals for this coming season with Dallas Mavericks affiliate. Collinsworth, a Provo native, is a three-time all-WCC performer and two-time honorable mention All-American who broke the single-season record for most triple-doubles (6) and broke the NCAA record with 12 triple-doubles. He went undrafted last year before signing with the Legends.
