  1. Cindy Luis:

    Took until point 5 for UH to get a kill. They have more aces (3) than kills (2) trailing at 8-9

  2. Cindy Luis:

    UH's serving has been impressive.Not sure if they can keep it up all night. UH on a 3-0 run, lead 13-11. TO Pepperdine.

  3. Cindy Luis:

    Pepperdine on a 4-0 run behind the serving of Torres. Waves lead at the TTO 15-13

  4. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore serves into the net, Waves with another block. TO Warriors trailing 18-15.

  5. Cindy Luis:

    2 net serves and another block by the Waves. To UH trailing 22-17.

  6. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors hold off one set point but not the second, Torres with his seventh kill. Waves win 25-19.

    Waves hit 480, Torres 7-19, Kalmbach 4-0-6. 6. 5 blocks, 3 SE, 0 A
    Warriors hit .167, Marks 4-3-8, Sedore 4-3-9. 2 aces, 4 SE, 1 block.
    both teams with 9 digs.

  8. Cindy Luis:

    That was a quick timeout by Dunphy. UH with 2 blocks and Torres hits wide. UH up 5-1 behind Marks' serving.

  9. Cindy Luis:

    Nice out of system play by Cheape and Zarkovic. UH up 15-10 at the TTO.

  10. Cindy Luis:

    another hitting error by Pepperdine. UH up 20-14. TO Waves.

  11. Cindy Luis:

    Think Verna, the up ref, missed that one. definite carry by Kalmbach.

  12. Cindy Luis:

    New AD Ben Jay sitting a couple of seats over. Asked him if he liked volleyball. He said yes. We chatted a little about Ohio State winning a couple of years ago over UCSB. And he spoke a little about when the Buckeyes hosted in 08.

  13. uh fan:

    Is that UH AD wearing pepperdine colors?

  14. Cindy Luis:

    Ace by Sedore and a kill by Zarkovic help the Warriors close it out 25-18.

  15. Cindy Luis:

    Set 2. UH hits. 481 to Pep's 250
    Warriors won the block battle 3-1.
    Sedore 7-3-16, Marks 6-3-11, Zarkovic 8-1-16, he was 6-0-10 in Set 2.
    Torres 8-2-16, he was 1-1-7 in Set 2.
    UH 2 aces, 4 SEs, Pepperdine 0 aces, 3 SEs.

  16. Cindy Luis:

    Hawaii up 7-3 in Set 3. TO Pepperdine. Last point was a net-roll ace by Sedore.

  17. Cindy Luis:

    After such a hot start, Torres has really cooled off. Hit into the net, then hit long. UH up 10-4.

  18. Cindy Luis:

    Waves on a bit of a roll, have closed it to 11-9. TO UH.

  19. jmy:

    Sedore is serving like a beast!

  20. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors answer back. kills by Sedore, arks and Zarkovic make it 15-10 at the TTO.

  21. Cindy Luis:

    Interesting sub. Averill now setting for Ramos with UH up 19-14.

  22. Cindy Luis:

    Yeah, i didn't think that would last long. Ramos back in to set. Torres puts down the overset. UH was up 19-14. Waves have closed to 19-17. TO UH.

  23. Cindy Luis:

    West on quite a serving run. Pepperdine takes the lead at 20-19 on a block of Marks. Net serve by West and it's tied 20-20

  24. Cindy Luis:

    IMHO, it was a very poor coaching decision to switch setters. UH was up 19-13. Waves serving for Set 3 at 24-22
    Waves win 25-22

  25. jmy:


  26. Cindy Luis:

    Jay is wearing a blue aloha shirt and a kukui nut lei.

  27. Warriorfan:

    Jeez this team can choke away leads like no one else.
    Charlie please change the setter...

  28. Cindy Luis:

    yep, outscored 12=3 at the end.

  29. Cindy Luis:

    You cannot blame Ramos for that one. They lost the momentum when Averill came in to set at 19-14.

  30. Warriorfan:

    I just am not impressed with ramo's sets I like his serving though.. If Max is healthy I'd let him set.

  31. Cindy Luis:

    Don't know Wechsung's status. if they went with Averill must be something.

  32. Cindy Luis:

    But I do like Sean Carney's energy as a coach. talking a lot to Ramos. UH up 10-9 in Set 4.

  33. Warriorfan:

    JP has got to one of the most inconsistent hitters I have ever seen, men or women. He has soo much potential though.

  34. Warriorfan:

    The refs are so horrible ugh.

  35. Cindy Luis:

    Yes, Sedore's serve should have been an ace. from the replay it was in by at least 1 foot.

  36. Cindy Luis:

    The Waves with a block. lead 15-14 at the TTO.

  37. Cindy Luis:

    Agree, WF. Verna is usually a lot better than tonight. but the linesmen never get any better.

  38. Cindy Luis:

    Olsen makes an appearance Makes an immediate impact. he teams with Holt to stuff Torres. UH takes the 16-15 lead. TO Waves.

  39. Cindy Luis:

    Averill and Setdore block Rhein, giving UH a 19-18 lead. TO Pepperdine.

  40. Warriorfan:

    Really hope that missed call isn't the difference in this set 4. Timmer is such a great serving specialist.

  41. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors were up 23-19, Pepperdine has closed to 23-21. TO UH

  42. Cindy Luis:

    Taylor hits long UH wins 25-21. on to Set 5, for the 4th time in 4 home matches this year.
    UH is 1-3 in 5 setters, Pepperdine hasn't gone to 5 yet.

  43. Warriorfan:

    Fingers crossed that they pull this one out. Is it just me or is the time on posts off? last post by Cindy says it was made at 8:43 pm?

  44. Cindy Luis:

    yes, the timestamp is off by over 30 mintues. really odd but thanks for pointing it out.

  45. Cindy Luis:

    There's been like 2 kills this set. everything else service errors, 1 ace, and now 1 block. it's 4-4

  46. Warriorfan:

    Wow I am gonna lose my hair because of all these service errors in this fifth set by the warriors.

  47. Cindy Luis:

    A kill by Averill and a Wave hitting error gives UH its first lead of Set 5 at 12-11. TO Pepperdine

  48. Cindy Luis:

    Torres tops it, hits way long. UH up 13-11. TO Pepperdine.

  49. Warriorfan:

    I hope i Don't jinx it but this would be a huge win, way bigger than the ucla match.

  50. Warriorfan:

    What a great win, Brook and Siki were so great, If JP can get it going ( fingers crossed) they can sneak into the playoffs.

    I still hope Max and Anefrei get into the lineup though.

  51. Cindy Luis:

    Great win. Zarkovic serves the last five points. UH was down 10-11. win it 15-11

  52. karmady:

    They can take them tonight too - go Warriors! See Warriofan? Other teams make errors, and so do coaches.
