Anybody know why our own All American, Yarimar Rosa, did not play in the Kentucky tournament?

Anyways, nice first win of the tourney...

With no information what-so-ever, my only guess would be, since they are playing 3 games in a short period of time, and W. Carolina is not a power, they are keeping her fresh for Northwestern and Kentucky.

Go Panthers


p.s. a sentance in the story kind of irked me [With the win, FIU moves to 1-0 on the young season while Western Carolina falls to 0-1. The Golden Panthers are now in command in the all-time series, 2-1.] In command of the all time series? 2-1? a. that is not commanding and b. do we really need to rub Western Carolina's noise in it? I think not.

Looks like we just beat Northwestern in comeback fashion, winning the last two sets to steal it from them... And Yarimar didn't play against them either. That's very strange.

Well, from the official FIU release, coach Tomic is quoted as saying "we've been dealing with a lot of adversity". Here's hoping Yarimar is doing ok...

FIU lost to Kentucky in 3 straight sets. Again, Rosa didn't play, it seems.....

Everything would be speculating...One thing it should not be based on academics, as she earned a commendation from the Sun Belt based on academic achievement. I know she was in Japan playing for the Puerto Rico National team in the World Volleyball Championships in mid August, but I would think she would be already in Miami.

Injury?..Still playing in Japan?.....elegibility due to any type of the NCAA infractions...like playing as a professional?...internal team rules discipline?....These are all possible speculations...

I know she got back from Japan earlier this week, might have been a case that she hadn't practiced with the team so they are bringing her in slowly...it happens....gotta reward those that practice the full summer with the team. Not knocking Yari, for playing for PR at all.

Perhaps she is exhausted and needed the rest. In any case, can't wait to see her back in action.

That's the reason I would like it was based upon. It's obvious that Yarimar couldn't practice with her team due to her representing PR for over a month. Maybe...and hopefully...coach Tomic made the decision based on lack of practice time with her FIU team. Not necessarily to "discipline" her, but to follow some team rules/respect for those who practiced together as a team. I would like to hear an official reason, so as to mitigate rumors and speculations we are talking about...
