Not trying to “divide” anything.  I agree with all of you they won’t, and shouldn’t, drop a set.  They are a huge school playing much smaller schools and Fulton is a big time player.  Role players are just as important as stars.  Fulton would not be the player she is without a setter to get her the ball or a defensive player to make a pass.  No one who follows VB would say anything negative about her, she is the real deal.  It is silly to say this team would be just as good without her? With Fulton they won’t have anyone score 20 against them, without her they are a good team but not a great team.  Again, this has to be a mom or dad because coaches and players know their roles and the pecking order.  Look at how many sets she gets and what she does with them.  They could give her the State tournament MVP right now?  LeBron had to have a solid supporting cast, and guess what she will get them another state championship ring.  Without they should still win but it won’t be the cake walk that this going to be.  Crocket is so small that they don’t even block.  Fulton could beat them by herself?  Crocket won’t score double digits tomorrow.  Then Murfreesboro Central will get another spanking by Fulton on Thursday and probably again on Friday in that they are the second best team in the tourney and they have no one to stop Fulton.

Moving on today is Anderson Co, Murfreesboro Central, Nolensville & Crockett Co. I predicted every win except for Crockett Co. who surprised me a little. Unfortunately, they win the opportunity to face Nolensville. I'll stick with my picks: Anderson Co & Nolensville to lock up their slots in the final four tomorrow. 

In the bottom bracket I'll take Greenville over Covington and Signal Mountain over East Hamilton.

AC doesn’t match up well with MC.  I think MC and N meet in the semis.  Fulton owns MC.  MC will then come out of the loser bracket and play N again in the finals.  If Fulton gets the sets, MC can’t score 15.  N wins and doesn’t lose a set and Fulton carries N to a title.  Fulton is special, if her supporting class she gets another ring.

If you look a couple of pages back on this thread I predicted  M’Boro Central to get to state and surprise a few folks, so you could be right. I just think that the Anderson Co. program has been here before and this is all new for Central. So that could be their downfall. We’ll see if they can handle their first big test on this stage.

Bratman... spending too much time online might leave you unfamiliar with the fact that "t"s usually come in twos.  

Crockett girls can put up double digits.  

Now you just double those "t"s, please.

Well, Crockett put up double digits, coming from a 2A team in all three sets against a technically 3A team and is still in the tournament.  Nolensville has enough enrollment to make a nice selection, and they have way more to work with than just that one player.  Their opponents just have to shake the nerves of being matched up against a name and make their offense count.

I wouldn’t say Nolansville has a name.  I doubt CrockeTT county had heard of Nolansville before today.  They BARELY got to double digits.  A couple of thoughts, the teams on the other side of the bracket were stronger.  If we ranked then it would be Nolansville AC Murfreesboro Greenville as the top 4.

watching AC Murfreesboro and Nolansville back to back Fulton is in a different league but AC is a tougher team than I thought.  I really thought MC would sweep them after they took game 1 but AC was mentally tougher and made in game changes that took MC’s best player out of the game and they exploited MC at the net.

N has weaker setting and if they can’t get the ball to Fulton they could be beat.  I didn’t realize how well AC could play.  If Fulton has an average game, or doesn’t get enough sets they could get beat.  It will come down to Fulton, without her they don’t beat AC or MC

Where is Fulton signed to play college next year?
