As for the remainder of her volleyball season, she is uncertain if Texas will realize its potential and reach the Final Four. "Our biggest problem is holding each other accountable," Aldrich says. "If somebody makes a bad play, we don't look at her and say, 'You need to get mat ball.' Instead we're like 'O.K., guys, we'll do better.' We are so nice to each other, I can't believe it.
