win over the Big West's best all around squad. Morgan with 60 swings and that's Nele Barber type numbers. Morgan started slow and then got into a good rhythm. Still need to cut down on those service errors and hopefully Jalen Jordan can cut down on her hitting errors. This should be a confidence booster for the team and maybe they can start a run and give the "BIG 3" some headaches.
lost the first set, and still looked unglued, especially sub-par serve-receive
picked up the serving pressure, and Morgan Chacon got in a groove, she was scoring from all over the last 3 sets, 24 kills, and almost all were in the last 3 sets and a bunch to keep siding out under duress
best thing is they overcame some poor set decisions late game 4 & kept siding out
SB was camping on Schwarzenbach's slide, took awhile to adjust and later Meyer/Callie got some good swiings.
clean up some serving - Tia has a tough serve, but she puts some really bad ones in the net, too many for a serving specialist, but had a great run in set 3
great adjustment with Meyer serving short to throw SB off, was a big key
great great much needed win for this group, they are through the toughest part of the schedule, now see if they can go on a streak, albeit no team they can take for granted with this group
