    Not many teams to challenge them in conference. I haven't seen Nebraska or Minnesota play but this team has a lot of good play when it's on. Last night, after the first set, the team just went through the motions. Gneiting had some good moments though. Did they sit RJP most of the time or was she just unusually quiet?

    Yep, they have emerged as the 2nd best WCC team. They absolutely spanked LMU on Saturday. I think my model may like them a little too much, but I think they are at least a top 25 team. They should make it to the NCAA tournament. That said, BYU destroyed them in the first match at Pepperdine. Like 25-18, 25-15, 25-21.

    Too bad USD is not achieving their potential. BYU could use some ranked teams in conference.
