Volleyball sweeps bingo & umbc for the second weekend in a row. Plus both weekends got the short end of the draw playing their two games in one day; while bingo and umbc each drew one game sat & one Sunday. Don"t know how the AmEast sets their 3 team round robin weekends. Anyhow swept both weekends are 6-0 in the conference [7-1 overall] and have at least a 2 game lead on every other team in the conference.

Interesting watching a volleyball match with an announcer (Ashley Castellano) who actually knows what's going on and can point it out.

Great Danes win the first set 25-23

Think canceling last weekend really hurt UA yesterday. Simply UA was NOT consistently sharp yesterday. I've seen pretty nearly every set home & away (on AmEast of course) this fall/spring actually. Even though they competed hard, yesterday they looked out of sorts @ times. Reminded me a little of UA's Jekyll/Hyde Lax team. UA would get a lead and then seem to relax, almost like the were trying to conserve energy.

I have NO idea how many players they had available last weekend; but feel a team needs to PLAY against opponents to stay sharp. Especially coming up to tournament time, IMHO it does not benefit a team to take a week off to try and stay healthy. Rust develops quickly and in a short season especially, I think one is better playing (if at all possible) than resting up and simply practicing among themselves.

Like I said I have NO knowledge, how bad/many last weekends covid pause was; but either way, IMHO it had a very negative affect on UA's performance yesterday.

ps 2 sometimes starters with considerable minutes did not play at all yesterday {damnCOVID.}
