Report

B I G E A S T P r e s e a s o n Coaches Poll For the first time since joining the BIG EAST in 2005, the Cincinnati Bearcats have emerged as the favorite in the 2010 BIG EAST Volleyball Preseason Coaches’ Poll. The Bearcats were unanimously selected, receiving 196 points and all 14 first-place votes. The defending tournament champion Louisville was picked second while defending regular-season champion Notre Dame was selected third. The votes were cast by the league’s 15 head coaches who were not permitted to vote for their own teams. Cincinnati (25-11, 12-2 BIG EAST) finished second in the regularseason standings in 2009, posting a 12-2 conference record. The Bearcats then made a run all the way to the title game of the BIG EAST Championship, where they lost to Louisville. The UC squad returns BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year senior Stephanie Niemer, who led the conference in total kills with 541 while finishing third in aces with 53. Niemer was a unanimous selection to the AllBIG EAST First Team in 2009, earning a spot on the AVCA All-Region team. The Bearcats also return All-BIG EAST First Team selection senior Annie Fesl and second team selection junior Missy Harpenau, both of whom were voted on to the All-BIG EAST Preseason list. Since the inception of round-robin play in 1990, 19 of the last 20 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 13 have taken the regular-season title. However, the last team to be selected first in the preseason poll and win the regular-season crown was Notre Dame in 2004. Defending tournament champion Louisville (21-11, 10-4 BIG EAST) was selected to finish second with 176 points. The Cardinals will be led by sophomore Lola Arslanbekova, the 2009 BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Performer. Arslanbekova was a unanimous selection to the Preseason All-BIG EAST team. Last year’s BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, she led the team with 533 kills and 587 points last year. The Cardinals also will return senior libero Lindsey Mango, who was a 2009 All-BIG EAST Tournament team selection. Louisville has become a staple in the finals of the BIG EAST Championship, making it to the title game five times and winning the crown three times since joining the conference in 2005. After registering a perfect 14-0 mark in the regular season in 2009, Notre Dame (21-7, 14-0 BIG EAST) has been tabbed to finish third with 161 total points. Reigning BIG EAST Coach of the Year Debbie Brown will have to replace three All-BIG EAST First Team performers in Christina Kaelin, Jamel Nicholas and Serenity Philips, who have left due to graduation. Junior Kristen Dealy and senior middle blocker Kellie Sciacca will be the focal points of this year’s squad, both earning spots on the All-BIG EAST Preseason Team. Sciacca led the conference in league play with a .429 hitting percentage in 2009. With five returning starters, the Golden Eagles of Marquette (18-12, 6-8 BIG EAST) earned their highest ranking in the Preseason Coaches Poll, as they were picked to finish fourth with 158 points. Marquette returns All-BIG EAST Second Team performers senior Nikki Klingsporn and junior Ashley Beyer, as well as three-year starter senior Rabbecka Gonyo. Beyer and Klingsporn were both All-BIG EAST Preseason picks. Senior Allie Boaz of USF, senior Vanessa Dorismond of Georgetown, juniors Kim Maroon and Maggie Mergen of Villanova, senior Rebecca Murray of Connecticut and senior Amy Town of Pittsburgh also were named to the All-BIG EAST Preseason team. The volleyball season will start on Aug. 27 with every team playing in tournaments prior to conference play. BIG EAST play begins with a 14-game opening weekend on Sept. 24-26. The BIG EAST’s 15 volleyball teams play every league school once for a 14game schedule. The top eight finishers in the BIG EAST standings based on winning percentage advance to the BIG EAST Volleyball Championship hosted by Pittsburgh at the Fitzgerald Field House. First-round action of the BIG EAST Volleyball Championship will begin on Nov. 19. The event spans three days and is single elimination. ESPNU will televise the championship game on Nov. 21. The tournament champion will receive the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA’s 30th Annual Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship.

bearc ats B e a r c at s N o t e b o o k • Cincinnati comes into the 2010 season with 10 returners from last year’s team, including all-BIG EAST performers Stephanie Niemer, Annie Fesl, and Missy Harpenau. Harpenau and Niemer were AVCA All-Region selections and Niemer later earned AVCA honorable-mention all-America honors. • UC head coach Reed Sunahara begins his 11th season as the leader of the Cincinnati volleyball program and has led the team to six NCAA Tournaments in his tenure, including two straight postseason appearances. • The Bearcats advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament championship game for the first time since joining the conference in 2005. • Cincinnati carries a 28-match home winning streak into the 2010 campaign, which is the second longest home winning streak in the country behind back-to-back-to-back national champion, Penn State, which has won 72 consecutive home matches. • Since 2003, UC head coach Reed Sunahara owns the sixth-best winning percentage at home in the country.

hus kies Huskies Notebook • The Huskies are looking to clinch their fifth consecutive BIG EAST Tournament spot in 2010 with the efforts of four returning starters from last year’s squad. • Rebecca Murray is expected to continue to lead a balanced offensive effort with contributions from four newcomers to join Murray and Jordan Kirk as returners. • After making several solid appearances as a defensive specialist during her freshman year, Kelsey Maving will step into the starting libero position after the graduation of four-year starter Jessica Isaac • Angela Roidt is the anticipated starting setter with Keeley Abram possessing the potential, once again, to also see time.

Fighting Irish Notebook • Notre Dame gradated six seniors from its 2009 BIG EAST regular season title-winning squad, but welcomes six incoming freshmen for the 2010 campaign. • A two-time all-BIG EAST selection, senior Kellie Sciacca enters her final season as the program’s second-most efficient hitter in school history (.343). In 2009, Sciacca led the BIG EAST in league play with a .429 hitting pct. and was 10th with 1.21 blocks/set. • Junior Kristen Dealy will aid the Irish from all angles on the court, as the six-rotation outside hitter finished second on the team in kills/set (3.23), digs/set (2.94) and points/set (3.68) as a sophomore. Dealy has twice been named to the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team. • The Notre Dame roster will be littered with four liberos/ defensive specialists, as junior Frenchy Silva headlines the returners after averaging with 3.40 digs/set in 2009. She ranked ninth among BIG EAST players with 3.93 digs/set in league play. • The Irish will attempt to capture their 12th regular season and 10th BIG EAST Championship title since joining the league in 1995.

P ir at es P i r at e s N o t e b o o k • Seton Hall returns six starters from last season, losing only Second Team All-BIG EAST libero Allie Matters. Matters, the all-time digs leader for the Pirates, is expected to be replaced by freshman Alyssa Warren, a member of the United States Junior National A2 team in the summer of 2010. • Leading the returnees is senior outside hitter Sarah Osmun, who has led the team in kills in each of her first three seasons and ranks third on the school’s career list with 1,158. Joining her on the outside is sophomore Hannah Hugeback, who came on strong down the stretch of the 2009 season, including a stretch of seven straight matches with double-digit kills. • Junior Meghan Matusiak will handle duties on the right side, where she finished second on the team in 2009 with 369 kills. Matusiak recorded double-figure kills in all but one conference match and was fifth in the BIG EAST with 3.73 kills per set in league play.

oran ge Orange Notebook • The Orange looks to build on their most successful season in recent history in 2010. The 2009 squad posted a 21-11 overall record, including, a 9-5 mark in BIG EAST conference play, marking the programs best season since 2005. It was also the eighth 20-win season for the Orange in head coach Jing Pu’s 14year tenure. • Syracuse hunts for its fourth-straight BIG EAST Championship qualification in 2010. It would be the first time the Orange has qualified for four-straight postseasons since the BIG EAST Championship went to single-elimination format. • Syracuse returns four starters from the 2009 squad, led by senior Hayley Todd. Todd ranked second on the team in kills (116) and blocks (97) last season, playing both middle and outside. Todd is joined by 2009 starters Noemie Lefebvre, Laura Homann and Samantha Hinz. Lefebvre split time at outside hitter (161 kills) and libero (330 digs) last season and returns as the top allaround contributor for the Orange in 2010. Homann will resume primary setting duties and enters the season ranked seventh on the SU career record list with 1,174 assists.

Wil dc ats W i l d c at s • Villanova loses just two starters and three players overall from last year’s squad, and will look to get leadership from its six juniors. • Junior libero Kim Maroon returns and is expected to be a defensive force for the Wildcats after leading the league in digs a year ago. She was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection and named to the AVCA All-Northeast Region squad. • Villanova will get the help of redshirt sophomore outside hitter Morgan Petkovich, who returns in 2010 after sitting out the majority of 2009 with a torn ACL. As a freshman, Petkovich ranked second on the team in kills while playing in 101 games. • The Wildcats will play in four tournaments before conference season begins, including hosting the annual Villanova Classic. They will face a tough early test, meeting three-time national champion Penn State in the first weekend of competition.

2009 REVIEW BIG EAST Major Award Winners Player of the Year Meagan Dooley

Pittsburgh, Middle Hitter West Chester, Ohio Dooley was a physical and statistical nightmare for opposing teams all season. The 6-1 middle hitter was sixth in the BIG EAST in kills per set (3.86) while also ranking third in hitting percentage at .369. The senior was strong at the defensive end, finishing third in blocks per set with 1.52. Dooley was the BIG EAST’s overall points-per-set leader with 4.93 per game. At Pitt, Dooley ranks second in career total blocks (500) and career block solos (123), while claiming fourth in all-time block assists (377). She was a unanimous AllBIG EAST First Team selection.

Libero of the Year Michelle Rossi

Freshman of the Year Lola Arslanbekova

Louisville, Outside Hitter Tashkent, Uzbekistan The rookie had a marquee campaign in her debut for the Cardinals, finishing second in the BIG EAST with 4.25 kills per set as she led the Louisville offense all season. Her offensive prowess helped UofL return to the conference championship where the Cardinals will be defending their league title. She was named Freshman of the Week four times and capped the season with a Player of the Week award. The outside hitter was also named to the All-Cardinal Classic Team and Active Ankle Challenge Team at Ball State. She also was an All-BIG EAST First Team Selection.

Coach of the Year Debbie Brown

Pittsburgh, Libero Cleveland, Ohio

Notre Dame 14-0 BIG EAST/20-4 Overall

Rossi was a stalwart on the defensive end for the Panthers all season, playing every set (100) fin 2009. The senior was third in the BIG EAST in digs per set (4.79) and helped Pittsburgh to a 20-8 overall record, a 12-2 league mark and the No. 3 seed in the conference championship. Rossi is currently second in school history in career digs with 1,960 to date. She also added 35 assists and 10 service aces on the season.

Brown guided the Fighting Irish to a perfect, 14-0 BIG EAST record in 2009. She saw Notre Dame crack the AVCA Top 25 poll for the first time since 2006 on Nov. 9, entering at No. 24 after reciving votes for the previous nine weeks. For just the second time in program history - and the first since 1993 - Notre Dame earned a win over a top-five opponent, as the Irish dealt No. 5 Stanford a 3-0 loss on Aug. 29. When Brown led ND to a 3-0 win against Villanova on Oct. 4, it marked her 800th overall match on the sideline as a head coach and 600th with the Irish. The victory also was Brown’s 550th career win.
