Women's Vball vs Washington St 10/11/2007

Stanford 3 Washington State 0 Still unbeaten after the Oregon road trip, Stanford came back to the friendly confines of Maples to face a team that was 0-5 in the Pac-10. Needless to say, there wasn't much of a build up for the game and it was reflected in the poor fan turnout. I counted about 30 students in the block party section and probably another 30 in seats. There were no signs for the freshmen this time although Cassidy appeared to have some of her dorm-mates in the Block Party section.

As I'm sure Albert will touch on, our play wasn't that inspired and it was a very sloppy game. We definitely need to be firing on all cylinders against an unbeaten Washington team tomorrow. Hopefully there will be more fan support with it being Friday and all.

Washington State is not a good team. Unfortunately, we decided to play down to their level instead of blowing them completely out of the gym like we should have. Or maybe we did? This was one of the most boring volleyball games I've been to in my time at Stanford. I remember telling Zhihao I wouldn't have much to say about this game, and I'm going to hold to that. We did have a good number of aces in this game, even though many them were due to poor serve receive on Wazzu's part. If we play like we played tonight, we will have trouble against UW.
