With it’s victory Saturday night over the California Golden Bears, Penn State’s consecutive match winning streak has reached 100. If Penn State defeats the Rainbow Wahine of Hawaii on Friday, December 17th, Russ Rose’s total coaching victories will reach 1000, and Penn State will set a new NCAA record for consecutive NCAA Tournament victories.
Here’s a link to selected team and individual statistics, through December 6, 2009, for each of the Final Four teams (Penn State, Hawaii, Texas, and Minnesota): http://www.dignittanyvolleyball.com/?p=4778
If statistics could win matches, Penn State would be a sure thing. Personally, I think they will have a very tough time with Hawaii.
