ARIZONA STATE SUN DEVILS
There's a new coach in town as Brad Saindon takes over in Tempe. Saindon spent the last two years with the USA Men's National Volleyball team, but is no stranger to the collegiate game. He was the first coach at Colorado when the Lady Buffs started their program and he quickly developed the program into a national power. Look for him to do the same at Arizona State.
ACCORDING TO COACH SAINDON
'We are building everything around the setter. We have a proven leader in Cheryl (Anglin) and a newcomer in Giovana Melo who is really dynamic on the court and can do a lot of different things. I think we are going to run a two-setter offense and really get everyone involved this season. Everyone will play this year and everyone will. I think it is good for team chemistry to get the whole team involved and it also helps keep things fresh.
'The fans will see a real exciting brand of volleyball and I think we will be one of the fastest teams in college volleyball. Everyone will jump serve and the players will be flying around the court. That is my brand of volleyball. We aren't a big team, so we will try to make speed the antidote for size. The Pac-10 will offer a lot of intriguing match-ups and it will be a great battle of styles.'
