versus Karch and Kent (I think). Try this mental picture: Loiola goes up
to block on the left side, K (forget which one) spikes a sharp angle around
him. Bacil is on the right side and digs the shot, but shanks it right
headed outabounds (about 3 feet off the net and 3 feet out). Loiola takes
off at full speed and just has time to stick his foot out to kick the ball.
Ball goes up nearly parallel to net, but is about to land in on K and K's
side. To Kent's credit, he's alert and digs it up. Play ensues. Loiola
and Bacil eventually win the rally.
So it wasn't an "attack" in the traditional sense, but it very nearly went
down for a kill.
