Opening statement… “We had a rough weekend opening up with SEC play. Our youth caught up to us a little bit. I don’t want to use that as an excuse. When you look at the stats and how well our kids played, it was our freshmen that didn’t perform quite to the level that we needed them to. The best part about this group is that when you point something out to them, they rebound from it. We have a good week of practice planned for them going forward. We played well at times and proved that we can play with the best.
“Against Arkansas, we lost two sets by two points. We had four set points on Friday evening in the second set. We made some errors, and we have to clean that up. For the most part, I was pleased with the way we competed Friday evening; we just didn’t make a couple of plays down the stretch.
“On Sunday, we came in and had No. 3 Florida. They’re No. 3 for a reason. They were very good. We didn’t play very well in the first set. In the second set, we responded and only lost by three points. We played well in that set. Unfortunately, we didn’t sustain it. They put pressure on you and make you do things you’re sometimes not capable of doing. It was a little frustrating for us.
“This weekend, we go on the road. We have a very good Kentucky team and a very solid Georgia team that went down to LSU and beat them in five (sets). The SEC is tough. It is a very good conference volleyball wise. Now we have to go on the road and do it.”
On the play of Melanie Crow and Aubrey Edie in their first SEC matches… “At times, they both looked really, really good. Melanie on Friday night was our leading hitter. She looked really good. On Sunday, she struggled a little bit. She’s going to have to become a little bit more consistent. Aubrey, as a freshman setter, is doing things that Amanda (Philpot) didn’t do until she was a junior. She’s already doing them as a freshman. She’s doing some nice things. It’s just the consistency level with it. If you don’t pass, which was one of our issues on Sunday, it doesn’t matter who your setter is, it’s going to be difficult.”
