Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin talked to local media Monday afternoon at the Manning Center about the Rebels' previous weekend of action:

Opening statement...
"We finally broke into the win column in the SEC with a 3-1 victory over Tennessee on Friday night. We played well. We're improving each match in different areas. Unfortunately, we haven't put it together all at the same time. We had a good performance from Aubrey Edie on Friday night as she set her career-best in assists. It's like being a freshman quarterback. She continues to make good decisions. We're starting to connect with the middles, which is kind of a timing thing more than anything else. Ty Laporte had three double-digit kills in the last couple of matches. She's playing very well. It was just a solid match against a team that if you gave them any confidence or an inch, they were going to beat you. I was very pleased with that win. We turned around and lost a heartbreaker against South Carolina in four (sets) on Sunday. Once again we had some people playing really well, but not the whole team. ... Now we have an unusual bye week where we don't play anyone this weekend. Then we have a stretch where we play four matches on the road in eight days. It's going to be a test to the team. We're afforded the luxury of chartering, which is going to be very helpful. It's still a stretch where every other day it seems like you're playing. We have to fit in a day off in there for NCAA rules, as well. It will be a tough stretch for us down the road."
 
On the play of freshman right side hitter Melanie Crow...
"Melanie is (one of the leaders on) the team in hitting percentage and kills per game. She gets better as a blocker every match. She's really come into her own as a freshman. Once again, it's a freshman starting. She was off a little bit on Sunday.  She just got frustrated with getting dug. South Carolina was a good defensive team. She has to learn that it's OK to get dug. It's not the end of the world and it's not an error. She has to continue to be aggressive. She's played a huge role for our team."
 
On improvements during the bye week...
"We're a little nicked up as far as legs go. Kara Morgan hasn't been attacking the ball the first couple of days of the week. Her shoulder continues to get better and stronger. We're going to take some time off that way. We have some aches and bruises. We're going to get back to some fundamentals. We're playing a lot of newcomers, and technically they have some things we can clean up."
