They got 3 third set wins over Louisiana (with 4 matches going to 3 rd sets) and 2 third set wins against Kentucky. A few points here and there, they could have two losses. They even squeaked by Arkansas 3-2. Like I said, they are a very good team and it wouldn't surprise me if they won the tournament. But I'm sure whoever comes out of the other side will be a very good team as well and will push bama as the other teams have.
Looks like Bama pulled out 2 more 3rd set victories this afternoon to take a 4-1 team win over Mississippi to advance to the finals out of Division 1 group play. Bama has definitely been clutch in the 3rd set TB the entire tournament. Sets up what appears to be a good final with Georgia, who I guess "upset" the Memphis team (based upon Memphis being dubbed a favorite).
