For FIVB rosters, you can only take 14 athletes IF you designate two liberos. So, Wilhite going to Japan (confirmed via social media) means that the plan to convert Robo to libero for more than one match happened literally Thursday night since the team flew out of Lincoln at 4 AM on Friday. Really sucky for Benson that she finds out the day before that she's not traveling with the team anymore.
I didn’t watch the last match against the Italian teenagers. The only time I saw Robinson on the floor she hit straigh into the net on an ill advised sharp angle to hit, and then got aced the very next point, and then was subbed out 🤷🏽♂️
