No.3 Stanford 3, Hawaii 2
February 1st, 2013

Looking like another late arriving crowd. Maybe Punahou Carnival conflict?

UH starters tonight Ramos, Sedore, Averill, Marks, Zarkovic, Cheape and Holt.

On the Stanford bench, former Warrior Daniel Rasay. only local players for the Cardinal are 'Iolani products Scott Sakaida, a 5-9 L who is starting, and Gabriel Vega, a 6-7 Fr. who appears to be redshirting.

  1. Cindy Luis:

    Agree with you WF. Stanford's attitude very surprising. Sedore with three straight aces. it's 10-4


  2. Cindy Luis:

    Ace by Zarkovic (did you catch his little signal after it dropped?) Cook hits the antenna. it's 13-5. TO Stanford.


  3. Alohilani:

    Could it be that not having a Shoji brother and all the respect they bring to the game that now the Stanford guys can act very cocky?


  4. Cindy Luis:

    I agree with that Alohilani but not just about one of the Shojis. Just the respect all the Hawaii kids have for the game with Lawson, McLachlin, etc on the team. Stanford was very humble. think they overdid the "worst to first' when winning the NCAA title a few years. ago.
    UH up 15-7 at the TTO.


  5. Alohilani:

    Sorry didn't mean to exclude the other local boys.


  6. Cindy Luis:

    Ace by Timmer makes it 19-10. it's now 20-11. Sedore to serve.


  7. Cindy Luis:

    Kill by Averill makes it 21-12. Stanford still whining there was no touch. New setter in for Stanford. Probably to give Shaw a rest and prepare for Set 5. It's 21-14.


  8. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors just can't seem to keep a lead. Stanford with 4 straight. It's 21-16. TO UH


  9. Cindy Luis:

    Stanford has closed to 23-18. Olsen in for Marks. Olsen not wearing his knee brace from last week.


  10. Cindy Luis:

    Stanford holding off 2 set points, have closed to 24-20.


  11. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore ends it with his 14th kills. 25-20


  12. Cindy Luis:

    well for the fifth time in six home matches, it's going 5. UH is 2-3 in 5-setters, Stanford is 1-0, that was against Pacific.


  13. Cindy Luis:

    Set 4 UH hit 256, STanford 257. Sedore 14-6-39, Averill 12-2-20, Marks 10-7-39, Zarkovic 14-7-40.
    for Stanford Irvin 23-4-37, Cook 17-7-43.
    UH 9 aces, 11 SEs. Warriors had 5 aces, 2 SEs in Set 4. Stanford 3 aces, 13 SEs.


  14. Cindy Luis:

    Think Wade waited too long to call a timeout. Stanford up 7-4. UH seemed to lose a bit of momentum with Sedore's net serve that made it 6-4.


  15. Cindy Luis:

    Stanford taking advantage of Ramos on the outside blocking. Irvine tools it off the block. it's 8-4 at the changeover.


  16. Cindy Luis:

    should have been a double contact by Stanford. not called. Marks with the kill makes it 9-5.


  17. volleyball fan:

    Hawaii can't seem to come back once they fall behind. Only when they're ahead, the fly ahead. They need to learn to make consecutive points during crunch time, not just when they're ahead. They need more mental strength.


  18. Cindy Luis:

    Irvin aces Zarkovic. it's 13-8. TO UH.


  19. Cindy Luis:

    Stanford wins it 15-9. Holt nets on the service overpass putback attempt.


  20. Warriorfan:

    That was really disappointing, the warriors showed no fight at all in the fifth, it was soo strange.


  21. Alohilani:

    The guys really didn't play well all night. To me, it's not really a surprising loss.


  22. Warriorfan:

    I really like Ramos defensively it's like having a nother libero out there, , but Irvin just had it way to easy hitting against his block. I hope Max gets another shot , at 6' 6 he won't get tooled as much.


  23. Warriorfan:

    Agreed the outsides just weren't terminating like the last match, but setting was not as strong either.
    It really hurts because stanford is not a good road team and this was so winnable, that third set should have been won :(


  24. Cindy Luis:

    It was a very winnable match. they could have won it in 3 if they didn't have those let downs, especially in Set 1.
    Starting a new thread in a minute. But agree that they had no fight in Set 5.


  25. karmady:

    They'll make adjustments and get them tonight. Go Warriors!
