Playoffs are a time for teams to remember the past with a chance of changing the future. Going forward, each game matters and it's win or go home. The regular season allows teams to jockey for home-court advantage and gain the best position to be the last team standing.
Our team has been hitting the books and the practice field for four weeks now. This past week was busy school-wise, as we have officially finished one-fourth of the fall semester. With tests, papers, assignments and quizzes filling our brains, we were able to blow off some steam by staying connected to each other and making each other laugh through our team’s favorite app, Snapchat.
In my four years at Florida State, I've never been part of anything that generated as much excitement and hype or showcased as much competitiveness as what was on display in Tallahassee on Saturday night.
Hi. I'm Emily Young, a sophomore volleyball player at USC. I'll be posting blog entries here, and if you're nice, I might just throw in a little poetry from time to time. I'm looking forward to having fun with this, so read up and feel free to leave your comments.
Having spent eight seasons in New York, I have a lot of great memories from my time with the Liberty, both on and off the court, but there is definitely one that sticks out. My favorite Liberty memory didn’t even take place in New York, but right along I-10 in Houston.
All right people, we have started Big Ten play! We had an amazing alumni weekend that began with seeing old friends and finished with our first conference win -- 2-1 over Wisconsin on Sept. 16.
Flying directly from the Charlotte race right into San Antonio on a 6 a.m. flight made for a pretty exhausting extended weekend. Unfortunately, I'm not a morning person so I don't know how I get up for those kinds of flights.
With all of the hype around the 2012 WNBA postseason awards, I began thinking of what awards might be missing from the list. My teammates are very talented on the court, but off-court they can be just as impressive.
What’s better than playing ACC games?I am so lucky I get to compete in the ACC. As a French player, I didn’t know about the ACC until I came over to play for Florida State a little more than three years ago.
At the start of a new training week before our first conference game, my coach looked at my teammates and me to announce that we were halfway through our season. Although none of us realized how far along we were, his statement hit us as hard as a slap across the face.
As Pia Sundhage prepares to coach her final match with the U.S. women's national soccer team tonight in Colorado, we take a look back at her tenure with the club:
Nothing quite compares to winning a championship. It's something that you cherish forever and will never forget. Just the memories of the celebration afterward are something you can never really duplicate, never even come close to matching.
Our coach, Pia Sundhage, has a record that speaks for itself: two Olympic golds and a World Cup silver medal. But it goes way beyond that. She has done great things for the team and for the game.
Whenever we travel, my teammates and I always have one thing on our minds: What in the heck are we going to wear? Unlike most teams, we don't wear sweats on the plane. Instead, we take a more professional approach and dress in business casual.
Outside of basketball, most of my favorite activities are outdoors and around water. Whenever I get a little downtime in San Antonio, I can usually be found outside by the pool, but most of my other favorite activities tend to be water related.
