It was a fantastic match that TCU led 2 sets to 1 at one point. Unfortunately, we found out why Hawaii has only lost one game all season.
TCU lost to No. 7 Hawaii in an NCAA Volleyball Tournament first-round thriller Friday, falling 15-13 in the fifth set in College Station.
With only two seniors on the team, it'll be really interesting to see how awesome this team will be next year.
The 2015 TCU volleyball season came to an end in heart breaking fashion, as the Horned Frogs dropped a 3-2 (17-25, 25-23, 24-26, 25-21, 15-13) decision to No. 7 Hawaii in the opening round of the 2015 NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship inside Reed Arena in College Station, Texas.
It'd be really cool for the Frogs to face Stanford.
The bowl has a shot at potential Heisman finalists such as TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin and Stanford do-everything offensive threat Christian McCaffrey.There’s a potential of attracting one of college football’s traditional blue-blood powers in a Southern California team which has never played in San Antonio before. The same with TCU, which has developed into one of the recent powers with a 22-3 record during the past two seasons.
Not bad for two small private schools, right?
The game drew 5.108 million viewers.
ESPN said the game was its most watched Black Friday telecast since 2010. It drew the fourth-highest audience ever a regular season Friday night telecast. (That’s a span of 109 games). For context, the audience was a 68 percent increase from Black Friday, 2014, when Virginia played Virginia Tech.
Boesen, a transfer from Long Beach C.C. will have two years of eligibility.
Evaluation: Boesen is very strong at the point of attack. he is very good against the run, but is not just a one-trick pony, as he will also be able to put pressure on quarterbacks. He can di some multiple things in the defense, putting his hand on the ground as a true defensive end or standing up as an edge rushing linebacker. Is college ready from a strength and frame standpoint and should be an instant contributor.
