Sunday BICs and Quicks 11/13/16

By

It’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.  Now, back to our devastating offense and the “BICS and Quicks.”

Quick Set 1 – Oklahoma State University does not play women’s intercollegiate volleyball!

I was thoroughly shocked (and still am, actually) when I discovered that Oklahoma State University (OSU), a very large public university (21,046 undergraduate students according to US News & World Report) located in Stillwater, Oklahoma, does not sponsor women’s intercollegiate volleyball. It would even make South Park’s Craig happy if they did.

Quick Set 2 – Kansas alone at top of the Big 12.

Kansas ascends to sole possession of first place in the Big 12 by virtue of the 3-2 (25-23, 21-25, 25-20, 21-25, 11-15) Texas loss to Iowa State on Saturday, November 12, in Ames, Iowa. Kansas and Texas split matches during the conference season.
