46. Yup, great to have a star like Emily, and we know Mita and Ali Longo are dependable, but wouldn't it be great if the others like Adolpho, Taylor and Vorster were given more opportunities to contribute? The Kim-Lily teams had two superstar OHs and pretty much everyone else on the starting lineup had some sort of pedigree, but it still wasn't enough. USC won the championship, and if I'm not mistaken, they had a more diversified offense, with people like Emily Adams, Keao Burdine and Bibiana Candelas helping out their star OH, April Ross.
I was at the UCI match. My own observation from about 10 feet away was that the team was looking really tired in the third set, and just sluggish and off-tempo. I wonder if the Bows playing twice in a row on the road, against fresh players, is a factor here. This was the same gym they played in last year, BTW.
43. Gustin had been injured but a little surprised also they didn't bring her in earlier.
52. Had mentioned that about having played in Crawford last year.
some might remember that when UCI unexpectedly hosted the MPSF tournament they couldn't secure Bren at the late date because the Hawaiian Club at UCI had booked Bren for its luau.
