First spring scrimmage was yesterday in the Hertz Center. What a great facility!
6 teams played including Tulane with 2 teams. Was incredible to see that much talent and depth in the spring. I’ve been in NOLA over 15 years and have never seen that before. The 2 freshmen who graduated in december and started at Tulane early this spring are going to be BIG TIME! The player from New York looks 6-4 and and can really hit it! The player from Florida is just 5’8 but jumps higher than anyone in the gym and is so fast!! The development of the returning players is really impressive in such a short time. Even with splitting the team Tulane won 13 of the 16 sets.
The team will have to overcome having so many freshmen and sophomores on the floor but man is the future bright!

Tulane sweeps all 4 matches today in Devlin against ULL and Nicholls. I only saw the 1st 2 matches before I had to go coach my club team. ULL is a good team that nearly won the Sunbelt last year and Tulane crushed them. The team continues to look very impressive. Looks like they are getting a really aggressive identity. So impressed with the incoming players!!
The team may be young this year but I predict they will win a lot of games.

Localvb, I noticed that assistant Meredith Schamun left. Any insight into the situation, her replacement, etc?
