2015 Bloomington – Week 5 (Oct. 21)

Updated: October 26, 2015

The Week 5 Volleyball Tourney is now in the books and the Playoffs are really coming into sight! Two Weeks remain in the Regular Season.  This Week’s Power Rankings will be a bit different as we didn’t have head-to-head match-ups.. We’ll have Rankings with wrap-ups for the Teams who were able to grab points on Wednesday Night.  Here’s a Link to the Weekly Highlight Video!  Another quick reminder as deadlines are fast approaching — for Spring Break Trips — StudentCity — and for Study Abroad — cea Study Abroad.  OK let’s Rank ‘Em! 


Power Rankings

1. Team ATO SO (StudentCity Blue) – Currently in 1st with 98 points.

While they didn’t manage to take 1st place in the VBall Tourney and keep their Undefeated Streak alive.. They did finish in 2nd and extended their consecutive point-streak to an unbelievable 5 weeks.  They are now just 1 Win away from clinching the #1 overall seed for the Playoffs.


2. Team AEPi SO (cea Study Abroad Orange) – Currently in 2nd with 69 points.

Big Week! The AEPi crew snagged 1st Place in the VBall Tourney and with that they propelled themselves into #2 of both the Standings and the Power Rankings. They now will control their own destiny for a top Seed in the Playoffs as we head into the final weeks of the Regular Season!


3. Team Delts (Classic Lanes Black) – Currently in 4th with 55 points.

4. Team ATO JR (Classic Lanes Red) – Currently in 3rd with 60 points.

5. Team Sammy 2 (StudentCity Red) – Currently in 5th with 48 points.

Finished in 5th on Wednesday Night and grabbed 3 points in the Standings. Before people scoff at the small amount.. Remember, heading into this week there was a 4-way tie in the middle of the Standings at 45 points.. Those 3 points for Team Sammy 2 have no given them the edge on a couple other Teams that were shutout in VBall (Sammy 3 and ZBT 1).. Considering the Top 6 seeds get an automatic bid into the Elite8 and Seeds 7-10 need to play an Extra Opening Round Game.. Those 3 points could prove to be gigantic!


6. Team Sammy 3 (Biaggi’s Gold) – Currently tied for 6th with 45 points.

7. Team ZBT 2 (Spikeball) – Currently tied for 9th with 27 points.

Grabbed hold of some much needed points and put an end to their brief skid.. With the 12 points they got on Wednesday Night they pull closer to the middle of the pack and remain in the fight to land a Top 6 Seed (who are automatically into the Elite8) come Playoff time! Big Night for ZBT 2


8. Team Phi Psi (cea Study Abroad Navy) – Currently tied for 9th with 27 points.

The paragraph about Team ZBT 2 above could literally be copy/pasted here for Team Phi Psi. They too got their first points since Week 1 Hoops and remain in a tie for 9th with Team ZBT 2 after also getting knocked out in the Semi-Final Round of VBall (gaining 12 points). This could be the momentum they’ve needed to go on a run in the closing weeks of the Regular Season!


Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team AEPi SR (SLA Insurance Blue) – Currently tied for 11th with 0 points.

Team Sammy 1 (Dr. Jacob D.D.S.) – Currently in 8th with 35 points.

Team Sigma Pi (SLA Insurance Green) – Currently tied for 11th with 0 points.

Team ZBT 1 (Biaggi’s Silver) – Currently tied for 6th with 45 points.


That’s it for this Week. Hoops up next for Week 6 on Wednesday Night!
