ASC Postseason Volleyball Tournament Notes:

Who's hot:  UT-Dallas (undefeated), LeTourneau (won last 6 matches), Concordia-TX (won last 5 matches). McMurry was on a hot run, interrupted by an un-expected late-season 1 match loss to Sul Ross State.

Playoff entrant most wanting to make a positive statement:  ETBU-hands down- The Tigers were once ranked as high as #12 in the Top 25, but with 5 other ASC teams having also been either ARV or in the poll at some point, with the top squads constantly knocking each other off, it was ETBU's turn to have a bit humbling, but not totally humiliating, regular season.

Team regular season stats generally, (on paper, anyway) would favor a UT-Dallas/Mary Hardin-Baylor match for the post-season title. However, McMurry ranked 2nd in overall service aces and avg service aces per set. Any match that goes to 5 sets-anything can happen

In terms of individual players, 9 of the top 10 who led the ASC in hitting pct will play this weekend (the lone exception being Annika Cannaba of Sul Ross State)

UT-Dallas has great balance, with Sommerfeld (top overall hitting pct.,), Croft (2nd in avg. Spikes for points at 3.82 per set), Fitt (3rd in assists/set at just more than 6.5/set) and Towery averaged 0.60 service aces per set.

Eight of the top 10 players in the service ace dept. will be active this weekend.

McMurry won one match against Mary Hardin Baylor during the regular season. Can the War Hawks pull off a mild upset this weekend? It wouldn't be a total surprise to me.

So far, generally, things have held to form--caught the last half of the 5th set of CU-TX/UT-Dallas thriller-- The Tornadoes were up 8-5 in set 5 but the Comets went on a 10-1 run to take the match!

It'll be a #8 Mary Hardin-Baylor/#3 UT-Dallas final:

Cru avoids the upset, for now, knocking off Sul Ross State in 3 sets.

Lobos have nothing to be ashamed of (heard per ASC site that last night's Lobo win was the first time they had ever beat ETBU, and SRSU had its' farthest advancement in an ASC Tournament since 2004.)

Update:  UT-Dallas over LeTourneau in 3 sets.

Mary Hardin-Baylor and UT-Dallas will go at it with the ASC AQ on the line.
