Volleyball Match #3: Missouri 3, Arkansas State 0

Well, my morbid curiosity is a bit disappointed that I don't get to find out what happens when Mizzou plays 15 games in 24 hours, but after a tight first game (32-30), Missouri's depth won out, taking the last two games, 30-20 and 30-13.

After helping to carry Mizzou against Jacksonville State, it appears Weiwen Wang didn't do much (only 6 kills on 12 attempts), but Julianna Klein was once again on her game (12 kills, .297 %, 6 digs), and Na Yang finished off a great day with 18 kills (.289). Megan Wilson, who hadn't done much of anything offensively in the first two matches, kicked butt with 10 kills on 17 attempts (.529), while freshman Catie Wilson got quite a bit of playing time and responded with 4 kills and 5 blocks. Amanda Hantouli struggled once again, with 0 kills and 1 error on only 3 attempts (-.333).

Mizzou's next match is Friday night, the home opener against Notre Dame. Sounds like it'll be fun...but I'll be at a wedding in Minnesota, missing both that and the MU-Illinois game. Bitches man.
