Croson leads U.S. JNT again

July 9th, 2010

Jane Croson (Hawaii oral commit) had 17 kills, 2 aces and a block tonight to lead the U.S. over Mexico for the second time in three days, 25-19, 25-14, 25-14. She hit .570. The win in the semifinals of the NORCECA Championship puts the U.S. into Saturday’s gold-medal match and qualifies the team for the 2011 FIVB Women’s Junior World U-20 Championships.
Story says Croson has 19 points but if you look at the stats, she has 20. they missed the block.

    Hopefully, some rep. from UH is looking seriously at some of the international girls…

    International recruits!!! Dave, staff…ladeda, they never end up with the US teams and that hurts when it comes to seeing the best that’s out there.

    Other coaches across the U.S. make it a point to get involved so that they can keep their programs on the edge (techniques/potential ahtletes). What about our own UH? :-(

    Well established programs with high profile coaches would not benefit much from coaching in those national programs. It takes alot of time and effort to be apart of them. And if they were lucky enough to identify possible internationsl recruits, would they be NCAA qualified, verify documentation, take exams, be finacially able to live in the states for the duration, won’t become homesick and leave. Missouri, Louisville and Oklahoma have coaches with international ties so they have a number of four year foreign players. Many of the coaches do it in part to beef up their resumes. The best way to get good foreign players is the junior college route. All or most of the about those qualifying questions have already been answered, a more efficient method. It lessens the possibilty of NCAA violations and their possible consequences…..least we forget.

    Can’t wait for Jane to get here. Kanani’s senior year, prospects of developing other good MB’s, Uiato with a year of training. I’m very optimistic about the future. We’ve never really had outstanding middles and outsides on the same team. The Wahine should do well this season, 2011 could be a very special one.

    Jane is an amazing young woman. Makes AVP beach volleyball history with Summer Ross, then Makes all tournament at JO’s and gets the gold medal, then gets MVP with the junior national team. Amazing!
