The best players in the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals were keeping it light Sunday at the Long Beach Open, despite not knowing what would come next for their sport. Before her championship match against No. 4-seeded Jenny Johnson Jordan and Annett Davis, No. 2-seeded Misty May-Treanor did a small pirouette with the help of her partner, Nicole Branagh. Adding to the dance move was May-Treanor's bikini bottom, which was bright pink with a ruffled skirt. May-Treanor and Branagh won the match, 21-16, 21-19, for their first title since they opened the season with a win at Fort Lauderdale on April 18. "I'll have to get more skirts," May-Treanor said.
