There are some tough matchups for the USA pairs in the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour Paris Elite 16. Matchups that were made tougher in that they have to play some familiar faces as the four USA pairs were shoved into two pools. To wit, Emily Stockman and Megan Kraft on Thursday swept fellow Americans Sarah Sponcil and Terese Cannon in Pool B 21-17, 21-17. The hottest team, Taryn Kloth and Kristen Nuss, had to go three to beat Canadians Brandie Wilkerson and Sophie Bukovec 21-17, 13-21, 15 in Pool C.

Qualifier upsets precede wide open main draw for Paris Elite16
More than anything this weekend, Lezanna Placette wants to “show the French public how the top players play, and it’ll encourage new people to try and to follow our sport more.” It makes sense. All of it. If only it were easy to identify who the top players were anymore. Look at the women’s qualifier bracket, and what you’ll find is pure carnage, a litany of upsets...

SANDCAST: Julia Scoles, the gritty Rookie of the Year, still has ‘so much growth to do’
HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. — Tina Graudina has a theory, one she vocalized at dinner on the eve before the AVP Fort Lauderdale finals in July. “There’s something about the mindset, you throw up, and you go out there, don’t mess with the person who threw up,” Graudina told Julia Scoles and Hailey Harward, her good friends and former teammates at USC. Why they were discussing puking and rallying at dinner, on the night before the biggest day of their AVP careers, there is no really telling. But it turned out to be an awfully prescient — if not inaccurate — conversation.

2022 AVP Phoenix Championships Recap
What a wild two days. We crowned familiar and brand new champs, bid farewell to a legend, and wrapped the summer season all under the lights and blessed air conditioning of the Footprint Center. For the first time since 2009, the AVP came back to Phoenix. While the temperature outside hovered around triple digits, the AVP fans and athletes were nestled safely inside the vast Phoenix Suns arena. It was so flippin’ cool.

2022 VolleyballMag.com AVP Men’s Awards: The year of the Hawai’ians
HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. — You hate them. You love them. You love that you hate them. You hate yourself for sometimes loving them. You once chanted Never Trevor and might now occasionally catching yourself whispering — not loud enough for anyone else to hear, of course — Forever Trevor. You skewered Tri Bourne for roasting both the AVP and Volleyball World structures on a podcast one day — yet also couldn’t help but give him a standing ovation for a second consecutive Manhattan Beach Open victory this past August.

Tribute to UCLA basketball star, beach volleyball great Greg Lee
Greg Lee helped to totally re-write the narrative of beach volleyball. When Lee embraced the game, it was no longer the well-kept Southern California secret. He was the point guard on two UCLA NCAA-championship basketball teams under John Wooden. But, as his best friend, Bill Walton said, he was more than just a point guard. When Jamaal Wilkes, whom Wooden regularly described as the perfect player, was asked what it was like to play with such an incredible passer and playmaker like Magic Johnson on the Lakers, Wilkes simply said, “Hey, I played with Greg Lee.”
