    I think this will come in time and with experience.

    Malloy's hitting percentage was under 200. I wouldn't call that terminator stats.

    Malloy is a tremendous volleyball player and athlete, and I am sad we lost her, but at least we have options.

    I have always wished for us to have a 6 5 or 6 6 over the top terminator, but those players will likely continue to go to Texas, Stanford, and PSU.

    Frankly, our biggest weakness seems to me to continue to be transition blocking.

    Capezio only had 2 kills today with a hitting percentage of -.125, so there was a drop-off from yesterday. They may have been taking her away with their service game, though. We'll need her, that's for sure, with all the other things she does well. I think an issue for her will be strength, and that can obviously be increased.

    aTm was only playing their second match, so they may have been a little fresher.

    Re: Capezio Seems the Real Deal

    Yeah I really like that Capezio had a little chance to rest and just play back row for most of today's match.

    Kuhrt did a great job playing a full rotation. So many service errors by the team today! But a few aces too!

    She was a starter at OH on the US junior national team this summer, along with Stanford and Nebraska players on the front line. Yeah, she's a terminator. Our own Caitlin Nolan (L) was on the team too, and raved about Malloy's play. Of course, then she left.

    It's good to see we have two players who have the ability to play the full rotation, and CJL can choose between them based on their play and the opponent, as was done this tourney.

    We know that Malloy was a talent we would like to have on our team. It was unknown how this team would fill her shoes. Now we know... Kuhrt and Capezio are going to be very good.

    Combine that with some very strong play in the middle and the right side (lots of hitting options!), very capable setting by Hudson, of course strong defense -- the pieces are all there as promised.

    Re: Capezio Seems the Real Deal

    So, I am biased, see, Capezio worked out at my gym, and I have seen her play a lot. She is stud, and I am biased, but last night, she had some amazing kills, CJL said "flashes" of what she will do.

    Here is hoping we land Quinn Spieker, teammate of Capezio in high school, as well from Burlington, WI - as well.

    With a name like that, she has to be one helluva volleyball player.

    wow, she's only a sophomore?! I agree, let's get her before Nebraska/Texas/Penn State notice!

    Signing her would make us forget the Baylor defector.

    Cara has done a good job of that herself so far:).

    Re: Capezio Seems the Real Deal

    Some Minny fans on volleytalk wish they would've kept her...they obviously have great recruits of their own with a coach of that caliber but will still be fun to watch Ciara make them regret their decision!

    Excuse my stupidity but did they pull her scholarship or something?

    Re: Capezio Seems the Real Deal

    I think Ciara had committed early, then had some reservations about her committing. But, there are always two sides to every story.
