Even with a healthy Strivens, I doubt that the outcome would have been any different. Tx had better players. Taller, stronger, and more athletic.
She retired from volleyball, before she ever played for the Longhorns....I noticed that Capri Davis was not listed on the Texas roster. Don't think she could have beaten out any of the Tx starters anyway.
It would have taken a complete effort and impeccable strategy. Part of me thinks that Stiv not being 100% affected the team attitude. Seems like Jazz, for one, lets things like that get in her head.
Might have helped if we could have played some non-conf games. I would hope we finish #4 in the rankings. I'd say definitely the top 4 are Wisconsin, Cuss Word, Kentucky, & NU. Unfortunately, due to the seeding, an unworthy Washington team is in the final four.
