Ole Miss head volleyball coach Joe Getzin spoke with the media Monday afternoon about the Rebels' last weekend of matches at Mississippi State and Arkansas, and their upcoming weekend against Alabama and Texas A&M.
Opening statement… “We took care of business down in Starkville. I’m happy to say we swept the Bulldogs in three and earned a season sweep of them. We played very well. We had a very balanced attack across the board. We then got back on the road to Arkansas where we had a disappointing loss (Sunday) in four sets. We battled very well. We took the first set and came back and lost the next two. In the fourth set to take it to five, we were up 22-20 and ended up losing 25-22. It was a disappointing loss, no doubt about that. For where we are in the season and the battle that we’re showing against a very good Arkansas team, I’m pleased with that aspect of it. We just have to take care of business. When it’s 22-20 we should win that set.
“Now we’re back at home for the final weekend of the year. We have Alabama – who upset Auburn on Sunday – on Wednesday evening. Friday, we have Texas A&M, a very talented team as well. We finish the season out against two good teams.
“Our freshmen are doing a great job. Our freshman middle, Nakeyta Clair, was named Freshman of the Week by the SEC this week. Ty Laporte is doing an excellent job. Seini Moimoi played very well at Arkansas. We believe we can build with that.
“Ashley Veach led both teams at Arkansas in digs with 20. Hopefully we can finish up on a strong note. Our senior night is going to be Wednesday evening. On Friday evening we will be having a Black Friday giveaway. We’re excited about that.”
On setting the standard for football by beating Mississippi State twice this year… “I don’t know that it’s quite the rivalry that football is because neither team has any Mississippians on it. It’s always nice to be able to go down there and take care of business.”
On these last two games being motivation for next year… “These seniors have played a big role for us over the years. It would have been really easy for them to give up and they haven’t done that. They continue to practice hard. We could have easily won at Arkansas if we would have taken care of those last three points. When you go into a fifth set, anything can happen. It is a bright spot that our freshmen are starting to play well. You’re always building for the next year in this situation.”
