This was a good match for us as we were able to get in the entire roster. Lauren McCrary ran a nice offense and we scored on her serves. Ryli Bobbitt hit .75 % and blocked well. Morgen Tinkle and Kacee Nicholson were in the libero spot as Brantli Lannan was out for this match and they both did very well.”

VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State.
