After dropping the 4th set, we rolled out to a 12-4 lead in the 5th set and cruised in from there. Losing this one at home even against a talented but underachieving Aggie team would have been a bad loss.

We move to 10-2 in the SEC and 20-4 overall. Don't see us improving much on our #25 RPI ranking after beating two teams at home this week that had RPI ranks of 78 and 100, but it will depend on how the teams close to us did this week.

Kentucky and Florida cruised today in sweeps, and Tennessee showed something by coming from 2 sets down to beat a good but puzzling Georgia team in Athens in 5 sets. So now the top of the SEC standings look like this:

Kentucky 10-0
Florida 10-1
Missouri 10-2
Tennessee 9-2

No other team has less than 5 losses, so that's almost certainly going to be the top 4 in the conference at the end, with the first 3 getting NCAA bids and UT in a good position, but needing to improve on their 38 RPI rank to be safe. We still get Kentucky and Tennessee here at home, winning both of those could push us into the conversation for one of the last national seeds and a home regional, but I think that is still a long shot at this point. We almost have to win out IMO and hope several teams above us stumble.
