Sunday 11/28/2016 BICS and Quicks

net-set-bugIt’s time for some “BICS & Quicks” or a way to deliver some important volleyball items rapidly, or as the names imply, “quickly.” A quick set, also known as a ”Quick” or a “51” or a “one”, is an extremely fast-paced set 1’ to 2 ‘ above and near the net, where the hitter is approaching the setter and is usually in the air before the setter delivers the ball. A “BIC” or back row quick, is a low set in the middle of the court near the ten foot line delivered to a back row player to execute as an offensive attack. The BIC is similar to a “pipe” but is set lower and faster than the pipe to add more surprise to the attack. A quick is usually executed by a middle hitter, but a BIC is often executed by the backrow opposite or a backrow outside hitter. The Bic and the Quick both require exact timing and coordination between setter and hitter and both are deadly offensive weapons.

Quick #1 – #2 Minnesota upends both #1 Nebraska and #3 Wisconsin. In two five set thrillers, the Golden Gophers topped the Nebraska Huskers (21-25, 22-25, 28-26, 25-17, 17-15) and the Wisconsin Badgers (22-25, 25-17, 11-25, 25-17, 15-8) this week in two very impressive displays of volleyball, coming from behind in both matches. Look for Minnesota to move to the top of all the DI polls.
