by Cindy Luis on February 25, 2015

Got a chance to chat a little bit with coaches and players at the new courts. At the moment No. 1 looks like Tiegs-Taylor according to Hall and Alvarez.

Some new tidbits under comments http://www.avca.org/divisions/men/1-2-poll-2-23-15/ 1-2 stay the same with Loyola and Lewis. SC drops from 3 to 7. Everyone else moves up a spot: UCI, BYU, Pepperdine and Hawaii. As mentioned on previous thread, Kanetake would have gotten my vote Anyway, from UH via the MPSF: http://www.hawaiiathletics.com/news/2015/2/23/MVB_0223150306.aspx?path=mvball Junior libero Kolby Kanetake was named […]
