    Gave one away on the last homestand. Only solution is to get one back by getting a sweep, not a split, this week.

    Every match in the Pac 12 will be tough with so many teams ranked. Must defend home court.

    Bummer - Buffs were up 20-15 in 3rd and lost 26-24. Now down 1-2.

    Buffs can't close set 3 out and lose 24-26 after leading 24-22.

    Buffs down 10-17 in 4th. Defense is struggling.

    I've seen this too often. The Buffs make a few errors and they can't seem to stop ... they go into a downward spiral where the errors just pile up. That's the best thing I can think of to say for that fourth set. Ugh. Big challenge for the players and the coaches to fix that. And then fix the holes in the defense. I have seen some good things this season but they have a bunch of work to do to make the tourney.

    Saw lots of things last night that have to be fixed if they have any chance of making the tourney. While they lost to a ranked team, they lost. They can't lose at home. Road in Pac 12 is too tough.

    2nd set was fun to watch. By the 4th set, as I watched it spiraling down, all I could think was I stayed up this late to watch this?
