NCAA | Pac-12 continues to dominate final regular-season coaches’ poll

Washington (22-5) back in the top 5

The votes have been tabulated for the final regular-season weekly coaches’ poll, conducted by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).

 The Pac-12, as it has for most of the past two months, scores five of the top seven positions.

Voters boosted USC four spots after the Trojans beat former #1 Stanford, but raised Washington just one slot after its victory over former #4 Oregon.

Volleyblog Seattle still can’t figure out why coaches give so much love to Hawai’i (still no road matches against a top team), and why they can’t seem to stomach Miami (FL) (just four losses, plus a win over Florida State.)

And that crazy RPI? We’ll be addressing that soon in another post.
