Battle’s Back, and Volleyball Finishes Second Best

May 10, 2010 at 8:46 am Leave a comment

First the good news: Talor Battle made it official over the weekend, announcing he’ll be back for his senior season with the Nittany Lion basketball team. The all-Big Ten point guard and three-time team MVP spent the past few weeks testing the NBA draft waters, but he notified the athletic department over the weekend that he’ll be back for his final year. It’s the decision most people expected, but it’s still great to hear it confirmed by the man himself.

Now, the disappointment: The men’s volleyball fell to top-ranked Stanford in the national title match on Saturday night, dropping a 30-25, 30-20, 30-18 decision to the Cardinal. The Lions were aiming for their third NCAA championship but couldn’t overcome a terrific Stanford squad playing on its home court. It was an unhappy end to an otherwise typically terrific season for the Lions, who finished with a 24-8 record and won their 12th straight EIVA conference championship.
