Preseason Report

B I G E A S T P r e s e a s o n Coaches Poll

The University of Louisville has been selected as the favorite in the 2012 BIG EAST Volleyball Preseason Coaches’ Poll. For the second consecutive season and fourth time in five years (2008, ‘09, ‘11, ‘12) the Cardinals were selected to win the league’s regular-season title, this year receiving 168 points and 12 first-place votes. Marquette was picked second, edging last year’s BIG EAST Championship runner-up Notre Dame, which was selected third. The votes were cast by the league’s 14 head coaches, who were not permitted to vote for their own teams. Louisville (24-9, 13-1 BIG EAST) captured its first ever BIG EAST regular season title in 2011, posting a 13-1 conference mark. The Cardinals were the preseason favorites last season and reached the BIG EAST Championship semifinals before falling short to Notre Dame. Head Coach Anne Kordes returns for her second season and looks for continued success after an impressive 2011 campaign that featured an NCAA Tournament berth. Also returning to the squad is the unanimous BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year and reigning BIG EAST Player of the Year, senior Lola Arslanbekova. Arslanbekova led the conference in kills last season with 576 and her 4.88 kills per set ranked third in the nation. The senior outside-hitter also ranked among the leaders in points, averaging 5.41 per set to rank fourth nationally. Her stellar season earned her unanimous BIG EAST First Team honors, AVCA Third Team AllAmerica laurels and an AVCA All-Northeast Region Team selection. Joining her will be All-BIG EAST Preseason Team selections senior Gwen Rucker and junior Emily Juhl. Juhl received BIG EAST First Team honors and was an AVCA All-Northeast Region honorable mention last season as a sophomore. Louisville looks to make its eighth BIG EAST Championship title appearance since joining the league in 2005. The Cardinals have claimed the championship four times. Since the inception of round-robin play in 1990, 20 of the last 22 preseason favorites have advanced to the finals of the BIG EAST Championship. Of those favorites, 15 have captured the tournament championship and advanced to the NCAA Championship, while 15 have taken the regular-season title. Teams have won both the regular-season title and BIG EAST Championship 14 times, most recently St. John’s in 2007. Marquette (24-11, 12-2 BIG EAST) was selected to finish second behind the Cardinals with 150 points and one first place vote. The 2011 BIG EAST Coach of the Year, Bond Shymansky, will rely on veteran leadership from senior Danielle Carlson and redshirt-senior Holly Mertens. Carlson, a First Team All-BIG EAST honoree and unanimous All-BIG EAST Preseason Team selection, led the conference last season with a .385 hitting percentage. The junior was also an AVCA All-America honorable mention in 2011. The Golden Eagles amassed a 12-2 conference record last year and earned a trip to the NCAA Championship. Claiming the number three spot in the preseason poll was Notre Dame (1713, 8-6 BIG EAST) with 140 total points. The Fighting Irish earned a spot in the BIG EAST title game in 2011 after knocking off the No. 1 seed in the semifinals. Sophomore Jeni Houser led the squad to the title match en route to 2011 All-Tournament Team honors. Houser’s impressive freshman season earned her Second Team All-BIG EAST honors and a 2012 All-BIG EAST Preseason Team selection. The reigning BIG EAST Champion, Cincinnati (27-10, 12-2 BIG EAST) was picked to finish fourth with 139 total votes and one first place vote. First year head coach Molly Alvey will be without the 2011 Most Outstanding Player of the BIG EAST Championship, Missy Harpenau. However, the Bearcats do return All-BIG EAST First Team selection Jordanne Scott for her senior season. Scott ranked fourth in the league last year with a .319 hitting percentage and was named to the AVCA All-Northeast Region Team. She was a unanimous 2012 All-BIG EAST Preseason pick. Senior Samantha Hinz and junior Lindsay McCabe of Syracuse, junior Monica Wignot of Pittsburgh and sophomores Valerie El Houssine of USF and Shelby Manthorpe of Seton Hall were also named to the All-BIG EAST Preseason team. The volleyball season will start on Aug. 24 with every team playing a nonconference opponent prior to league play. BIG EAST play begins with a 14-match opening weekend on Sept. 21-23. The BIG EAST’s 14 volleyball teams play every league school once and two schools twice for a 15-game schedule. The top eight finishers in the BIG EAST standings, based on winning percentage, advance to the BIG EAST Volleyball Championship hosted by Marquette University at the Al McQuire Center in Milwaukee, Wis. First-round action of the BIG EAST Volleyball Championship will begin on Nov. 16. The event spans three days and is single elimination. ESPNU will televeise the championship game on Nov. 18. The tournament champion will receive the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA’s 32nd Annual Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship.

hus kies Huskies Notebook • The Huskies aim to defend their title at the UConn Classic on Labor Day Weekend against Dartmouth, Fairfield and Michigan State. • Senior libero Kelsey Maving reached the 1,000-dig mark last year and set the second highest season total in program history with 578; she was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week on Oct. 31 after breaking her own school record with 40 saves against Notre Dame (Oct. 29). • The UConn roster is comprised of just three seniors and one junior; six sophomore and four freshman, including Devon Maugle (Plymouth Meeting, Pa.) who had 236 kills as a rookie, will look to make an impact. • Head Coach Holly Strauss-O’Brien reached the 100-win mark in 2011, entering 2012 at 108-97 overall and 48-50 in BIG EAST play; this year she added Kristin Kenney and Steve Yates to her coaching staff.

Notre Dame advanced to the final match of the BIG EAST Championship and claimed the team title at Wisconsin’s InnTowner Invitational. • Seeded fifth heading into the BIG EAST Championship, the Irish knocked off a pair of higher-seeded opponents before falling to Cincinnati in the title bout, 3-0. The Irish avenged regular-season losses to Syracuse and Louisville in the first two rounds of the BIG EAST Championship. • Notre Dame graduated a pair of standout seniors in Frenchy Silva and Kristen Dealy but return 12 Monogram winners and welcome five newcomers to the 2012 roster. • The Irish are searching for their 12 league regular season title and 10th tournament crown (last in 2005).

Scarlet knights Scarlet Knights Notebook • Rutgers compiled double-digit wins for the third-straight season under head coach Jeff “CJ” Werneke, recording 10 in 2011. RU added depth to the roster, bringing in 12 newcomers to add to the eight experienced returners. • Seniors Alex Jones (224 kills, .383 hitting percentage in just 66 sets in 2011) and Stephanie Zielinski (1,151 assists in 2011) are expected to lead the offense with sophomore Sofi Cucuz (263 kills in 2011) looking to have a breakout season. • The Scarlet Knights face will be tested in 2012 as they are scheduled to face five teams that made it to the NCAA Tournament last season.

Red Storm Notebook • Head Coach Joanne Persico, the only head coach in the history of St. John’s volleyball, is entering her 19th season at the helm of the squad. Persico has an all-time record of 351-228. • Incoming freshman class includes outside hitter Yaidy Santiago, a gold medalist in Puerto Rico’s Under-21 National Championship, and utility Shawna Lei-Santos, who was named to the all-tournament team at last summer’s Junior Nationals in Atlanta, Ga. • Senior setter/libero Gabriel Petkova enters the season with 864 career digs – good for ninth on the all-time list at St. John’s. The team captain, who also became the fifth member of the Red Storm’s 2,000-assist club last season, will seek to lead the squad to its fourth BIG EAST Regular Season Championship and second BIG EAST Tournament Championship.

The Pirates eight BIG EAST victories established a new all-time high. • Allison Yaeger takes over as head coach at SHU after spending five seasons on the bench as an assistant coach in South Orange. • Junior Alyssa Warren has already established herself as one of the top liberos in Pirates history. She comes into 2012 with 1,073 digs, which ranks fourth on the career list. • SHU also welcomes back sophomore twin sisters Shelbey and Stacey Manthorpe.
