Massey was right, Raiders are #1 in their pool

As I mentioned early last week, Southern Oregon came into their pool as the #2 team according to the coaches but as the #1 team according to Massey Ratings. Today the Raiders proved Massey correct despite a 5-set loss to Viterbo. SOU moves forward to the final 16 as the #1 team in their pool where they may be playing against Marian next–yes, the very same Marian that SOU has lots of history with in football, women’s basketball, and softball. Massey had the Raiders at #8 and Marian at #25 before today’s win. If not Marian, then Rocky Mountain will be the next opponent.

SOU swept through their second opponent in as many days this afternoon in Iowa. Jamestown, who Southern Oregon beat yesterday, upset #7 Viterbo leaving SOU as the only undefeated team in the pool. The Raiders will face Viterbo at 2 p.m. PST Thursday.

The four Cascade Conference teams (SOU, EOU, College of Idaho, and Corban) in the final 32 teams are a combined 7-0 in pool play. It’s very possible all four will advance to the final 16.

The Raiders won over Jamestown in three straight sets this afternoon. A win over St. Xavier (Wednesday at 2 p.m. PST) will mean Southern Oregon moves on to single-elimination bracketed play Friday. If they don’t succeed against St. Xavier, the Raiders will still be able to advance with a win over Viterbro (who beat St. Xavier today) on Thursday.

2018 NAIA Volleyball National Championship Pools Announced – Raiders may have caught a break

@SOURaiders @RaiderVB @MylaNorvell @elli_cook

#10 SOU landed in a pool with #7 Viterbo, #23 Jamestown, and unranked Saint Xavier. The top two teams advance. Being the second highest ranked team, according to the coaches, is nice, and having no top ranked teams in the pool is nicer. However, if you look at Massey Ratings, usually a better indicator than the coaches, things get even better.

Massey has Southern Oregon at #9, Viterbo at #13, Jamestown at #18 (behind both College of Idaho and Eastern Oregon–two teams the Raiders have defeated), and Saint Xavier at #34. SOU’s odds of advancing to the final 16 look promising.

Pool play begins November 27.

Massey Ratings bumped the Southern Oregon Men’s Soccer Team up a couple spots after yesterday’s playoff win. Massey has the Raiders’ defense ranked #1 in the NAIA. Massey also ranks Southern Oregon’s next foe as the #1 offense in the NAIA. Should be interesting…

SOU’s next opponent is Rio Grande, a team which has outscored its opponents 106-5. Not only have they not lost, they haven’t even tied. However, Massey indicates a much easier schedule for Rio Grande than the Raiders have gone through. For starters, the Cascade Conference has three teams in the final 16 teams. Rio Grande was the only team in the River States Conference to make the final 31.

Massey gives the Raiders a 38% chance of winning.
