As noted before, this was a historic year for the high-level of production and sheer number of contributing seniors in college men’s volleyball. Since the season is over, Off the Block has crunched the numbers for 41 of the 43 with senior starters this past season, and we will be unveiling the data in a six-post installment.

The percentage of production lost is from starting seniors only. Off the Block included liberos as starters, and some teams will have more than seven starters listed as some teams have two players split time as starters at a given position.

Off the Block is releasing the data by conference, and next up are the Independent teams. Coker loses the most starting production from graduating seniors in terms of kills, aces, digs, and blocks. Queens loses the most in terms of assists with the graduation of setter Alexander Schinzing.

Daemen is one of the two teams in Division I/II who do not lose a senior starter (Belmont Abbey).
