Florida State Volleyball Comes From Way Back to Beat Duke 3 - 2

This is the final exciting point in the FSU/Duke Volleyball match

The match started out with Duke easily winning the first two games. FSU was without their best two players - one hurt and one on personal leave - her Dad died. But all of a sudden in the third game they came to life. After FSU won the next two games - it all came down to a 15 point tie breaker match with Duke jumping out ahead 8-6 - but when the smoke cleared - the scoreboard said FSU 15 - Duke 13. And FSU won the series - 3 games to 2.

After the volleyball game - I scootered over to the Civic Center to see the girls' basketball team manhandle the University of Alabama (Huntsville) by a score of 122 to 58. The Seminoles landed some very big recruits and have the majority of last year's NCAA tournament team returning.

It was a great day to be a Seminole fan.

These two teams are part of the reason that FSU finished Number 5 in the Director's Cup last year - awarded to the college that has the best overall sports program. That was the highest that Florida State ever finished in that competition. Both guys teams advanced into the NCAA playoffs.
