#19 Volleyball starts crucial stretch vs Trojans

New, 1 comment

Other than seemingly invincible Stanford, nobody has pulled away in #Pac12VB so far. Two teams with a chance to do so meet in Seattle tonight: #14 USC at #19 Washington, 7 PM, Pac-12 Network

At 5-3 through the first 4 weeks of conference play, #19 Washington volleyball has yet to really separate from the large group all chasing 8-0 Stanford. That could change quickly — for better or for worse.

The Huskies begin a crucial portion of their schedule tonight (Wednesday), as 14th-ranked USC visits Hec Ed at 7 PM. Each of the next four matches — vs USC, vs UCLA, at Utah, at Colorado — is a match this team is both very capable of winning and very capable of losing.
