As shown in the following table, my vote for first place matched dead-on with the larger panel, my vote for third was in the same ballpark (or in this case, gym) as the panel, and my vote for second was nowhere close to the panel!
|Futi Tavana (BYU)|
|Steven Shandrick (USC)|
|Austin Zahn (USC)|
Why did Shandrick receive so little support from the other panelists? He amassed a nice total of blocks, with some of his highest individual-match numbers coming against USC's most proficient-hitting opponents. Is there some factor I overlooked that made Shandrick's totals artificially high? I'd be very interested to see people's views of the issue in the comments.
