Volleyball Game Threads? What is this insanity?!?
You read it correctly, Wildcat fans, tonight we're kicking off what I hope can become a new tradition with our first ever VOLLEYBALL game thread! Kentucky is walking into Baton Rouge with a 10-2 record, a 4 game win streak, and lethal defensive player Jackie Napper hoping to make a statement in her final SEC season.
LSU, at 5-4 so far this season may not look like a threat, but they've faced some lethal competition to prepare them for SEC play. The Tigers have faced 3 ranked teams thus far, battling against #6 Florida State, #15 Purdue and #24 San Diego State. Tiger players to watch include sophomore blocker Briana Holman, and fiesty freshman hitter Mimi Eugene. Eugene is coming off a monster day over the weekend against Baylor, where she led her squad in delivering 13 kills. I recommend you also not take your eyes off Katie Lindelow, who also had a terrific weekend against the Bears.
It's also important to point out that of their 9 games to date, LSU has yet to play in the comfort of the Maravich Center, and if you know anything about LSU, you know its fans are pretty intense.
Intrigued? Come join the fun! We'll see you at 9 right here at A Sea of Blue!
