    Airing tape delayed on Longhorn network, but now underway. Not sure if there is audio live - I'm following the updates from the volleyball team's twitter feed: https://twitter.com/GatorZoneVB

    Gators won a very close game 1: 28-26.

    Outstanding! Makes the OFFENSIVE debacle in Miami a little more tolerable.

    Well, Penn State took us in 3, but still proud of our Gators. It was a good road trip for early in the season.

    Couldn't follow today, I guess it was just as well. Looks from the boxscore like Dagostino set part of the match - I wonder if something happened to Brauneis or Mary just wanted a different look because the team was struggling?

    Anyhow, still a great weekend for the team that should move them up a bit in the rankings. And now the real challenge begins - to keep getting better for a post-season run despite the lack of top-25 caliber competition on the remaining schedule...

    Is Naomi Santos-Lamb still injured? She hasn't played in the last several matches.

    From what I saw last weekend, she is maybe 70-80%. It seems, at least for the moment, that she has been beat out by Mallette as the 2nd OH.

    Thanks. Sometimes an ACL takes longer than one year. Hope she comes back strong.
