Who knows. They are starting 3 freshmen and 3 sophomores.
If you watched the Wichita game Tulane was ahead in the 5th set and almost beat the #1 team on the road. They are much better than last year.

Where is the volleyball guy? The women are 0-4 in conference on their way to the bottom just like last year. What’s the problem?

Well hello Mr Sunshine.
Tulane is losing close sets that they were winning in the non conference games. If you look at the stats Benoit went from leading the conference in blocks and hitting to the botttom once conference started. Don’t know if she got injured or what but that’s a big difference.
Also, if you evaluate who they’ve played so far: all 4 opponents are the #1, #2, #4, #5 teams in the league in rpi. Tulane is #6. Tulane ow has a favorable schedule because they only play those 4 teams 1 time. They will play the rest of the teams 2x for a total of 14 matches left in the season.
They have to right the ship but a potential run is possible. But who knows they start 4 freshmen and 2 sophomores.

Giving someone who provides information to this board a hard time? Nice.
Volleyball has recruited well, is a young team and the coach works hard (in contrast to certain others who sit on the beach).
Keep it coming localvb.

That’s a program builder. The two programs compete for a lot of the same recruits. This will go a long way!!!

Yes. Was a great win in 4 sets. The 2nd and 3rd set was close. The 4th, Tulane slammed it closed with a dominate win.
9-2 at Home.

Big impressive win on the road at UCONN. A sweep 3-0 at that.
That move Tulane out of the middle of the conference pack and in the top half.
4 conference wins in a row!

Reading the pre-season info this years team was picked 11th and it looks like the reason was they are extremely young. Half way thru conference they are in 4th and on a 5 match win streak. And as sited above with 4 freshmen starting. Outstanding!
17-7 with 9 games left. Great time to be peaking.
