by Cindy Luis on April 21, 2015

Sorry for the delay in this. Time difference definitely with eastern Canada an obstacle. Plus she wanted to have her parents add some comments. Natasha Burns is a 6-5 middle from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She originally signed with West Virgina but when the coach left, the NCAA allows for someone who signed an NLI to […]

by Cindy Luis on April 18, 2015

I will be at SandBows tournament so likely won’t be able to update the match in Provo until late. Very unlikely that UCSD will be UCI so Hawaii will be the second seed going into next week’s tournament and host Long Beach State. Still a big match for the Warriors in terms of the RPI. […]

Very surprising: Gauchos win 25-15, 15=25, 26-25, 25-22. It was the first loss in 20 matches in Firestone for the Waves. They had set the school record of 20 with last week’s win over UCLA. Pepperdine clinches the No. 3 seed at 17-5.
