    The Lady Shockers take on South Carolina tomorrow morning in the round of 64.

    This appears to be a very winnable match for the Shocks.

    Good luck Shocks!

      This has the feel of the NCAA volleyball tournament a few years back where WSU was the underdog seed-wise, but swept Nevada and played a competitive match against #1 Nebraska. They have played well this season and are poised to turn some heads in the tourney.

      Go Lady Shox!!

        Lady Shocks take the doubles point and lead 1-0.

        They need a split of the singles matches to advance.

        Torrie Browning is about to go down in the #6 match (6-1, 5-0).

        We need 3 of 5 now but only lead in 1.

          Now 2 - 1 USC.

          Miranda Gutierrez (USC) d Torrie Browning (WSU) 6-1 6-0 at #6.

          Natasa Vuckovich (USC) d Lenore Lazaroiu (WSU) 6-0 6-3 at #3.

          We trail badly at the #2 and are about to win the #5.

          If those results hold (and they will) WSU will need to sweep the remaining 2 singles matches.

          The good news: Madina Rakhim just took the first set in her match 7-6.

          The bad news: Stephanie Dalmacio dropped the first set in her match 7-5.

          WSU needs them both to advance.

                  • #10

                    Right after the break Stephanie gets broken herself.

                    Lifeline only down 5-6. She needs to break back to extend the match.

                      Stephanie tied it up at 6-6!
