Bingo....most teams show who they are pretty quickly. If they are lobbing to no end then you don't crash the net...you sag just a little to take the lob away or make it difficult.
Then there are those who are going to try and pound through you from the baseline...that's not going to work. We pick teams apart that try that. I'm sure a couple of college guys could hit through us, but another 4.0 team?...it's not likely...I'm sure it can be done, but we will win 8 of 10 matches and I'll take that if you trying to hit through us. lol
