Briefs: Mesa State Roundup November 08, 2008

Mavs sweep Highlands in volleyball


• Only two hitting errors in the first two games Friday night ensured the Mesa State College volleyball team will play for the RMAC West Division championship tonight.

 The Mavericks (14-11, 12-6 RMAC) rolled past New Mexico Highlands 25-16, 25-17, 25-23 in a match in which the Cowboys did not record a block.

“I know we only had two hitting errors after the first game and I don’t remember getting blocked in the third game,” Mesa State coach Dave Fleming said.

“We played pretty well and they played us pretty good early in both games. We put some pressure on them and they didn’t necessarily fold, but it was more of what we were doing on our side.”

Mesa State plays at Western New Mexico (19-7, 13-5 RMAC) at 7 tonight. If the Mavs win, they would tie for the division title with the Mustangs, but would receive the No. 2 seed in the RMAC tournament because they would have the tiebreaker with two wins over Western New Mexico.

“We’re peaking at the right time,” Fleming said. “It wasn’t as pretty as the Fort Lewis win, but when you win 3-0 on the road, I will take it.”

Women’s Basketball

• Abby Hancock scored 12 points, Alishea Kelly 11 and Stephanie Delgado 10 but it wasn’t nearly enough as Mesa State lost to Southern Utah 84-59 in an exhibition game.
Southern Utah, whose head coach, Steve Hodson, passed away Monday from cancer, shot 53 percent from the field. Mesa State shot 33 percent.
The Mavs play another exhibition Nov. 15 at Utah Valley.
