Arizona State’s hitting coach Jeff Harger constantly receives praise for the job he does with the Sun Devil lineup. Many coaches might’ve told Kindra Hackbarth, who has been in a slump of late, to take the 3-0 pitch. Harger trusted his All-American, giving her the green light, and it paid off.
After Duke grabbed an early 1-0 lead, the Sun Devils were in desperation mode entering the final minutes of the match. ASU continued to put on an attack and generate a couple of chances. Then in the 87th minute, the dam finally cracked.
