Our Prediction:

Central Florida will win

Stanford – Central Florida Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 15:30

The Cardinal are the defending national champion who put together a tremendous regular season with losses to Penn State (twice) and Washington. No team can make another change its strategy as much as Stanford can. Florida is one of the better blocking teams, especially with Rhamat Alhassan and Rachael Kramer in the middle, and Cheyenne Huskey going front row at setter. PVB Outlook: Heres what makes us so eager to see this clash. Carli Snyder is due for a better match than against USC, while Shainah Joseph is capable of hurting Stanford. It started from Day 1, with victories over Texas and Nebraska and showed most recently with the heroic comeback over USC. Stanfords block and back row defense with Hentz always gives Stanford a leg up in those areas. Thats not the real reason though why I wouldnt want to play Florida. We saw what happened to Nebraska in last years Final Four against Texas. Part of that will depend on who Joseph gets matched against, Plummer or Meghan McClure? There is no doubt the Big Ten rematch between Nebraska and Penn State is the more attractive matchup in terms of history, but there are no two teams scarier to play right now than Stanford and Florida. Its also impossible to replicate what Morgan Hentz can do at libero. They know how to win at this time of season because of their experience and they are as physically imposing as it comes, led by National Player of the Year candidate Kat Plummer. Its hard to replicate in practice what its like to have the 6-6 Plummer attacking, along with 6-8 Merete Lutz and 6-5 Audriana Fitzmorris. With Stanford, its kind of obvious. Heres why. Its more because the grit and fearlessness the Gators have exhibited this season is legit! Plummer blocking Joseph will be a fun matchup to pay attention if and when it happens. Its like Florida is playing with house money at this point and thats always a dangerous spot for someone like Stanford to be in.

Coach Says: Advantage Stanford. Shes in the talk for National Player of the Year for a reason. Sometimes they hit negative. For Florida, they have the revolving door at the second outside spot. The pick is Stanford because of Plummer. Then you look at Stanfords other outside (Meghan McClure) and she doesnt look like much, but her final numbers usually shows shes efficient. On Stanford, both those girls play six rotations, where only Snyder does Florida. Sometimes they hit .100.
