    I'm at the match. Chicago State is really bad. I don't think the third set will be any closer .

    Wish I could be at the match tomorrow night v the other CSU.

    Buffs complete the sweep 25-11. This set was close for awhile (believe it was tied at 8 or 9) but then obviously changed.

    CSU also had an easy time of it tonight, defeating the Buffs next opponent New Orleans -15 -14 -14.

    According to the box score she did play, but it must have happened before I arrived.

    Wish I was going to be at the match tonight! Hope to read some good commentary here.

    Normal starting lineup as the Buffs get ready to face the Privateers. All tied at 2 VERY early in this one.

    Buffs get the 1st 25-18. (Coach Mahoney did get frosh J. Spann some playing time in the middle third of the set, in place of A. Smith.)

    Sounds like there might be commentary for the match (???), but if there is it's not coming through the live feed.

    Buffs have an easier time in the 2nd, winning 25-13. J. Spann played the whole set in this one, with the 2 normal starters (Shadley and Smith) splitting time in the other outside hitter rotation. Klemmer and Joachim also got playing time late in the set.
