Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin spoke to local members of the media Monday afternoon at the Manning Center.

Opening statement...
“We came back last night from Auburn. We had Alabama and Auburn on the road this last weekend. We played two tough matches and came up short. The kids are battling. We went 32-30 in a heartbreaking first-set loss against Alabama. We played them tough the next two. Then we went down to Auburn and opened up with a good first-set win on their senior day. We just couldn’t match some of the intensity that Auburn turned around and had on their senior day. There are some positive things happening within the program. Nakeyta Clair breaks into the record books with six block assists and has set the (single-season) record for (block assists) and total blocks. Kara Morgan moves into second-place in service aces for a season, as well. We’re doing some good things. We’re competing. We just don’t keep the intensity all the way through. We’ve got to continue to find ways to get offensive production, especially from our pin players. Our outsides and right sides are struggling a little bit. We finish out the season on Wednesday night against LSU. We’ll have our senior night for Kellie Goss and Kara Morgan.”

On what a win on Senior Night would mean for Kellie Goss and Kara Morgan...
“Kellie has played a role position for us this year. Kara, being a four-year (starter), would like to finish on a win. She’s working hard each and every match and does something really well. She probably had her best weekend from a defensive standpoint. Both of them would like to go out with a win.”
 
On what the team needs to do...
“You always need to recruit, there’s no doubt about it. A lot of the issues that we have right at this point is not having production from the outsides. We hadn’t anticipated Kara Morgan getting hurt last year. A lot of times, with as much youth as we have on the floor, we’re looking around for someone to kind of take the reigns and run with it. We just haven’t had that person. I’m happy with the incoming class that we have. We’ve addressed that problem. We’ll get some kill production hopefully with the kids we have coming in. There are still a lot of good things happening with the youth on the floor. They’ve just got to learn that they’re not young anymore and keep producing. Melanie Crow has done a great job on the right side, and Aubrey Edie, as a freshman setter - that’s like a freshman quarterback. She makes good decisions and sets hittable balls. We’re still a little thin on the outsides. At times, Margaret Eggert did a great job for us there at times. We need better production at that position.”
 
On why the team is falling behind in matches...
“I don’t think it’s concentration as it is the other teams step up a little bit and do some things defensively, and we just don’t match that intensity. We keep waiting on teams to give us things instead of producing our kills. I don’t think it’s that as much as it is we have to learn to step up our game and match the other team. A couple of our wins, the other teams just didn’t play well. We did some really good things to cause that, but they turn around and start playing well and we don’t match that production wise.”
 
On the state of the SEC in volleyball...
“There’s some really good young talent. Auburn had six seniors. Alabama only had two seniors that play. It’s a mixture (of young and old). There is a lot of young talent in the league.”
