And then you go service error, Purdue kill, hitting error, hitting error, hitting error, hitting error, hitting error, Purdue service error (finally), MU service error, Purdue ace.  YUCK.

Having 3 match points and not closing the door isn't ideal.

Im done with this season already. They got bailed out against Dayton and proceeded to do the exact same thing against Purdue.

Lost in 4 sets versus ranked Kansas. Home opener versus Pittsburgh on Friday.

They might go into BE play with 7 losses. Not many chances for good wins in the BE. Just 3 total.

I refuse to watch them until Foti is benched. Not worth my time.

She’s not really the issue. She played all last year and the team was as good as a BE team can be. One thing has changed…

I am personally not a fan of a 6-2 at high levels of volleyball. Especially when it takes your best player off the court for half of the match.

I mean she’s hitting -.300 against Pitt right now. Sure there are other issues at play but at a certain point…

That was a waste of time for me tonight. Need to get things corrected for Sunday versus Tennessee.

It won’t be as bad, but I’d expect a sweep. The reality is they were never a top 15 team. They’d get one really good non con win, win 1 of 3 against Creighton, dominate the rest of a bad BE, and get a seed in the Tournament. But if they played a B1G schedule they’re bottom 5 in that conference. Just really hard to recruit at that level. It’s a whole different beast.

They scheduled like they were a top 10 team but they’re not close to that.

They won’t. They’ll go into the conference season with 7 losses and probably need to win an auto bid to make the tourney at this point.

What an awesome environment at the Fiserv, ladies are showing up! Not a great start from the setter, but the blocking and defense have been awesome.

Really surprising for a veteran team to have so much difficulty closing. Jeez.

So frustrating to watch as a casual observer. This thing could have been over if they could close.

Same here. To this casual observer, UW is clearly the more talented team but they've given MU the opportunity to knock them off and MU just not getting it done at the end.

Marquette absolutely had it for the taking. Keep fighting this set!

The air has exited the building, the mojo is no mo. Not over but not the same. Good effort, lots to build on. Must finish.

Marquette just doesn’t have that pin where Anchante can say “Here go up and get it”

This team needs an Allie Barber, Taylor Louis or hell, even an Autumn Bailey.

Tough to win when your middles and setter have more kills than two of your pins.

 Here’s what I’d personally like to see.

Give Reitsma the Libero jersey, she’s probably a better passer and defender than Kushner anyways.

Holmstrom has been pretty terminal in her limited opportunities in the front row, give her the OH2 slot and let Kushner take her back row.

Put Ifill on the RS and let Foti play get back row.

The passing is soooooo bad. I don’t know how you couldn’t convince your Libero to not transfer to an okay program, and how you couldn’t find someone better than a mid major OH to transfer in to be your Libero. There are a million defensive specialists out there in the women’s game. You don’t even need to give them scholarship money a lot of time. This girl looks slow and very unsure of what she’s doing.
