Volleyball: Are you not entertained?

I kept thinking of that legendary 'Gladiator' quote when I saw the 3-0 score from today's volleyball win over St. Peter's at Alumni Hall. That's two wins in two days for a team that has won eleven of its last twelve.

Better yet, here's a stat to think about: they've shut-out the opposition in seven of their last eight wins, all of which were in-conference games. Seven.

Forget the Iona loss. Even the best teams have an occasional lapse here and there. What more does this team have to prove? Volleyball is a hungry, energetic team with a young, upbeat coach. They'll make waves the rest of the year, and I'd be shocked if they're not playing for a conference title come late next month.
