Provo • Santiago Restrepo, maybe more than anyone at this time of the year in women's volleyball, has insight into what type of team BYU brings to the NCAA Tournament's round of 16.
Moments after the Cougars dispatched Oklahoma in three games to move into the third round Saturday, the Sooners' coach thought for a second or two before comparing 12-seeded BYU (27-3) to No. 3 seed Texas.
"They're pretty tall and physical, and BYU is pretty tall and physical," Restrepo said. "They are very athletic at every single position, and BYU is very good at every single position. They're certainly very athletic. They also play very good defense, not only on the block, but behind the block. So it is extremely tough to put the shot away."
