  • Shocks Host Illinois State (Fri @ 5:00) and Indiana State (Sat @ 7:00)

    The 2nd place Lady Shocks (18-7, 11-3) host their final two volleyball matches for this season taking on 5th place Illinois State (16-10, 9-5) on Friday at 5:00 pm prior to the Shocker men's basketball home opener against South Carolina State and 8th place Indiana State (10-16, 4-10) on Saturday at 7:00 pm.

    Illinois State is a dangerous team that is very capable of knockeing off the Shockers and is obviously the main focus of the weekend for the Shocks. I assume the Shocks will roll out their newest version of the 6-2 with Emily and Jody sharing serving and front row attacking duties that they deployed for the frist time last weekend.

    There is FREE admission to the Illinois State match with your South Carolina State men's BB ticket. I assume you show it at the ticket window to get a VB match ticket. Also, and maybe more importantly, there will be 25 cent hot dogs at all concessions during the Volleyball match. I am assuming they are reguar sized dogs.

    Hopefully, the Shocks are able to get by Illinois State on Friday so that they can celebrate Senior Night on Friday against Indiana State in a good mood. Shocker Seniors Dani Mostrom, Katy Dudzinski and Jody Larson will be honored. 3 terrific young ladies who have made very positive contributions to Shocker volleyball and to the WSU community.

    The first 1,000 fans at the Indiana State match will receive a FREE Shocker Volleyball Senior Night T-Shirt and the Indiana State match will be Wichita Eagle Family Night.


    4 and 4 and 4 and 4 for ONLY $32 (4 drinks of any kind, not just coffee -- not even sure they offer coffee)

    Just heard a radio spot promoting the Shocker Volleyball match against Illinois State. That spot states that match time is 7:00 pm. Oops. They are promoting the free admission all military and badge wearing service men and women with valid ID plus $3 Family and Friend tickets. Hopefully, that doesn't cause too many problems. I have e-mailed Shannon Lamb about this.

          To summarize the latest Bracketology:

          Four possibilities from the Valley with Missouri State assumed to be the AQ. Of the three remaining, Shockers and Northern Iowa receive at-large bids with Southern Illinois not making it to the NCAA Tournament.

              Heard the radio ad again this morning and it has been corrected with the correct 5:00 pm match time.

                Hopefully, the neck injury sufferred by Jody will not be a factor this weekend or the rest of the season. Man it has just been one of those years.

                "Punch isn't just firepower, it's also assists," Lamb said. "We averaged 16 assists per game last weekend, and that's a big number. And that was with a rookie setter."

                Sort of a rookie. Lamb did recruit Jody as a setter in high school before she decided to go to Oklahoma. Since transferring to WSU she has practiced as a setter occasionally.

                Wished they had commented a bit more on Emily's attacking and how they see that going.

                  Shocks score the final 9 points of Set 1 and cruise to a 25-13 win and a 1-0 lead.

                  Out hitting the Redbirds 0.471 to 0.125 even though Abbie was only 1-1-7. Mikaela, Tabitha, and Emily were very good on the attack.

                  Would not expect for the to last but we'll see.

                    Shocks lose a tough battle in Set 2 by a 30-28 score as the Redbirds tie it up at 1 set each.

                      Shocks come out of the break in the right frame of mind and roll to a 25-15 win in Set 3 and then pulled away late in Set 4 with an 11-2 run take a 25-18 win to close out a 3-1 win over the Redbirds.

                      A very important win for the Lady Shocks.

                      Mikaela had 19 kills hitting .405 but Tbitha was the POG with 20 kills hitting .395. Lambo has to be thrilled with that perormance on the outside.

                        This sets up what hopefuly will be an enjoyable Senior night celebration against Indiana State on Saturday night where the Shocks can make it 14 consecutive years of 20 or more wins which would be a nice send off for Dani, Jody and Katy.

                              SIU won the first two matches fairly easily, then UE managed to win the next two, but ran out of gas in the 5th.
