BYU seems to be playing to the level of their competition much more this
year.It was good to see that BYU has some great talent on the
bench.This season has a whole different dynamic with the MPSF
essentially splitting into two conferences, so BYU will most likely have to win
the MPSF conference tournament to get an NCAA bid, since an at-large bid for the
2nd place team in the MPSF is no longer a near given.
Great entertainment. The first two sets were very one sided. The team's
skill was matched by their courage in not giving up in the final three sets.
In the first 2 sets BYU was unrecognizable in their ineptitude. Fortunately they
showed what they are made of in the next 3 sets. Sander played well and
justified his place as the best and most consistent player on the team.
Congrats to our men's VB team on a hard fought, great win. Way to come back
and get it done! Special congrats to our reserves who gave the team a spark and
got it going for us, and to Coach Olmstead who had the courage and insight to
change the lineup when needed.
