All-time great Houston teammates blazed path for volleyball’s next generation

The same could be said of Rita Buck-Crockett, Hyman’s friend and former teammate at Houston. No matter what volleyball coach or expert you ask, the consensus is that Hyman and Buck-Crockett both rank among the game’s all-time great players.

So the fact that the duo are the first volleyball players ever to earn induction into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame seems only fitting. It’s kind of like when Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
