3 Lone Star State squads and Wittenberg moved up; LaVerne's record is deceptive, that squad's played a boat-load of ranked teams.

#2 Oshkosh nips #1 Juniata in the Trinity (Tx) National Invitational 22-25, 25-23, 18-25, 25-18, 15-13.  Both teams also beat #8 Wittenberg (Juniata 3-1, Oshkosh 3-0) and #18 Trinity (both 3-0).  In the final match, the host Tigers outlasted the Ohio Tigers in five sets, 15-11 in the fifth.

But only Oshkosh vs Trinity is in-region.

That looks like an excellent pre-playoff tourney for those 4 teams.

Now the debate is what schools host. Will it be Oshkosh, Whitewater or Carthage? I'm thinking Wash U gets a regional over St. Ben's and St. Thomas. The announcements are Wednesday.

Oshkosh hosted last year, and the NCAA likes to spread it around from year to year. But how can you deny the Titans this year? Juniata and Tufts also hosted last year. Doesn't seem fair to deny one and not the others. I think UWO and JC (probably Tufts as well) earned the right to host again in 2009. I don't know about the others, but Oshkosh submitted a bid to host this year.

I'll take Oshkosh, Wash U and Hope as hosts in my area, assuming they all submitted bids. Carthage or Whitewater may get bused east or west. We'll see. It all depends whether the NCAA thinks hosting is earned or hosting is rotated.

Not sure where to post this, but there's a blog page that has links to all conference tourneys in one spot. It also has the dates and the No. 1 seeds for all tourneys.

One team is already in: Pacific Lutheran. One tourney started yesterday: North Atlantic Conference.

See the link on the top-right rail. I could have linked to the page itself, but there may be other stuff of interest on the main page. If you like it, tell your friends  ;)

A certain volleyball blog (http://uwoshvball.wordpress.com/) is still around. It's not entirely terrible. There's 2010 stuff on there like "Who Loses Whom" and preseason polls.

If you've never moused to it, the blog focuses on the Central and Midwest regions but has a bunch of national entries as well, especially during tournament time.

I just went over there, too. I'm hoping it'll generate some more interest, particularly in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and West Regions.

AVCA D3 Top 25 Poll for Week 2 is now up: http://www.avca.org/divisions/division-three-women/poll-9-14-10/

Saturday features one of the games of the year as No. 1 Washington University takes on No. 2 Juniata College in Indiana.  This is a rematch of the championship game from last year.  And, a rematch of the regular season game that was the single greatest volleyball match I have ever seen.  I am a volleyball novice, but I am sure others would agree.

Washington University defeated four nationally ranked teams this last week without dropping a set.  Juniata is undefeated and always has a great schedule, so this should be one of the games of the year. 

I wish I could go.

No. 1 Washington University plays No. 2 Emory University today.  The game is online at 10:30 CST: http://www.brandeis.edu/streaming/athletics/

The Washington University Press Release has an interesting factoid on this match-up:

Washington University and Emory have combined to win the last three NCAA Division III national championships, with the defending national champion Bears winning the title in 2007 and 2009. Interestingly, the team winning the regular season match-up fell in the UAA Championship match, but still went on to win the national title in each of those years.

  Interesting to note that last year's CCIW champ Carthage is ranked behind Elmhurst this season. Elmhurst was also picked to finish #1 in the conference as well.

Quick comparison of the host sites for the tournament and the AVCA ranked teams in each (ORV indicates a team outside the top 25 but that did receive votes)

Calvin - 1, 9, 10, 16, ORV
Clarkson - 22, ORV
Elmhurst - 2, 5, 11, 18, 25, ORV
Emory - 7, 12, 23
Juniata - 8, 17, 21
St. Thomas - 4, 6, 13, 15, 19, 20, ORV
Trinity - 3, 14, ORV
Williams - ORV, ORV, ORV, ORV


Looks like St. Thomas and Elmhurst have the most difficult sectionals.

Well... Week 10:

http://www.avca.org/divisions/division-three-women/poll-11-10-15/

I'm just wondering: What justification does AVCA use for "fudging" their rankings? What I mean is, only 37 of their 63 voters actually turned in a ballot this week. They ranked the teams based on those ballots, and added 26 "ghost" ballots filled in according to that ranking. The actual poll, without the ghost ballots, was:

1   Washington-St. Louis (24)   905
2   Emory (1)               861
3   Juniata (9)            860
4   Calvin (3)               827
5   Christopher Newport      765
6   Wittenberg            757
7   Claremont-Mudd-Scripps      652
8   Colorado College         627
9   Cal Lutheran            604
10   Hope               584
11   Wisconsin-Whitewater      580
12   Southwestern (Texas)      502
13   Carthage               462
14   Texas-Dallas            427
15   Wisconsin-Stevens Point      390
16   Eastern               351
17   Elmhurst               291
18   Clarkson               267
19   Wisconsin-Oshkosh         140
20   La Verne               135
21   Gustavus Adolphus         123
22   Chicago               120
23   Illinois Wesleyan         106
24   MIT                  82
25   Carnegie-Mellon         76

The actual poll was a lot closer than what they published. For example, Emory garnered only 1 more point than Juniata, not the 27 that the published poll shows. And Carnegie-Mellon barely edged out Hendrix (72) for the last spot.
