Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin talked with local media Monday afternoon at the Manning Center about the Rebels' 2-1 week against Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Opening statement ...
“We finished up a tough stretch of our schedule this last week with two wins. We went down to Mississippi State on a short week Wednesday, just having two days to get ready for them. They had 1,600 people, it was a great crowd and great atmosphere, and we took care of business on national TV on ESPNU. It was a great victory for us. I was really proud of the way the kids handled the situation more than anything else as young as we are.

"We turned around, had one day of practice and went to Tennessee. We also won at Tennessee. It was a good ending to the road part of it.

"We came back a little road weary and had to play Texas A&M yesterday and we lost in four sets. We came out of the gate and did not perform right away. I don’t think it was anything but what was working against Mississippi State and Tennessee didn’t work against Texas A&M. Our young players didn’t respond that first set. I was happy with the way we responded after the first set. We ended up playing A&M pretty tight after that point. We just have to continue to grow as a team. We hit great numbers up until yesterday. Yesterday, A&M’s block and defense stepped up, and we struggled a little bit offensively. We’ve just got to be patient with that. They made some great plays and there’s not much you can do about it. We’ve just got to keep attacking. We got really timid once they made those great plays.

"We turn around and host this weekend. We have Georgia and Kentucky. Georgia is a team that we went five (sets) at their place. Kentucky is a team that’s top-20 in the country and playing very well right now. The SEC continues.”

On team confidence with wins last week ...
“The best part about this young team, is while we have some inexperience, they’re very good in the gym everyday. Having a good attitude in the practice gym hasn’t been a problem for us at all. They were really excited with the win against (Mississippi) State on TV. We continued that against Tennessee. They have some work in front of them. Overall, the spirits are good. They believe in themselves.”

On national exposure and how it helps recruiting ...
“It’s awesome to be on an ESPN channel and the number of recruits that respond to that. Having a good showing on it helps as well. It definitely opens up avenues outside of our region, which is huge for us.”

On freshman setter Aubrey Edie ...
“She’s one of the few freshman setters in the SEC. It’s like being a quarterback. She’s playing really well. To have two double-doubles against (Mississippi) State and Tennessee is huge. Her defense is getting better. We out dug the top two offensive teams in the league. She was a big part of that with her defense. Setting-wise, it’s a matter of experience for her. She’s getting better. She’s recognizing what the other team is doing. She’s making some great decisions.”

On what the team can take from its two wins last week moving forward ...
“Our defense is one area we’ve put a lot of emphasis on. We’ve got to continue to improve on that. If we can hit the numbers that we hit over this last stretch we’ll be in a great spot.”
