Duquesne Match I & II

First match is at Dayton on Tuesday at 5 pm. Second match is later in the year, but will also be a mid-week match in Pittsburgh. The new conference format has basically a mid-week match lineup with one opponent - it looks like the closest opponent in a home and home set up. So we get the Dukes. They arenít very good this year. Thatís just a fact. But we will be challenged by the mental weight of the Davidson sweep. So if we donít come out with our heads focused on cleaning up things on our side of the net, we will make Duquesneís year if they beat us. They donít have a lot to lose. Our injuries and the physical challenges this season are what they are. But there is no reason for this team not to be mentally sharp and ready. There is a lot of volleyball left to play and we are preparing for an A10 Tournament Championship and looking for our 17th appearance in the NCAAs starting with this match. We need to show we know that and improve our performance on the court. Use this match to get better. Go Flyers.

Flyers sweep Dukes 3-0. Another line up change. Alyssa Miller gets the start at setter and goes the distance. 40 assist in 3 sets is very good. Anything in the 10-11 assists per set is great. She averaged 13.33. But the Dukes are not that good of a team this year, so you have to take that into consideration.

Anna still in a boot and a Taylor also not dressed out. TH shortened the rotation to 9 players with Lindsey Winner playing the 3rd set at MB for the 9th player. I think everything he did was the right move. I might have played a Mia Otten in the 3rd at right OH only because she has been playing so well, but only 3 rotations. Grace plays the same spot and can go 6 rotations and is a pretty good blocker for 5’ 11”. So the Senior is holding down her spot for now. The freshman Otten will continue to push her.

But TH said it...they have got to find a lineup soon - injuries or not - so they can begin to build chemistry to play at a higher level more consistently. Not to be disrespectful to Duquesne, but this was a good match to start. Almost like a scrimmage, which we needed. Build from here. It’s all about getting the right piece on the court to win the A10 Tournament.

Second Duquesne match on Tuesday in Pittsburgh. This should be a sweep by the Flyers. Take care of business and get back to Dayton. Early start at 5 pm. The ESPN+ and live stats links are on the Dukes schedule page. I assume they will be in the Flyer pre-match write up when it comes out. They are not on our schedule page currently, but it looks like there is streaming.

Got the sweep on the road. Time to gear up for two matches with SLU.
