  1. Cindy Luis:

    UH serving better already, UH with 3 aces up 9-6.

  2. Cindy Luis:

    so much for that. SC takes the 11-10 lead. TO Warriors.

  3. Cindy Luis:

    gotta love Ramos with the solo stuff ties it at 14. SC comes back to take the 15-14 lead at the TTO.

  4. Aloha73G:

    Blogging from home again Cindy? Hope you're not sick. Looks like USC radio guy & gal are in your spot tonight.

  5. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors on a 4-0 run, UH up 18-15. TO Sc.

  6. Cindy Luis:

    SC has come back to within 21-20. TO UH. Warriors up 5-1 in blocks.

  7. Cindy Luis:

    so frustrating to watch. UH serves for the Set. Zarkovic nets his serve. Christiansen with an amazing dig over the press table, keeps it alive Marks blocked, Averill block. SC wins 26-24

  8. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors continue to struggle after getting to 20. UH outscored 7-3 at the end.

  9. warriorfan:

    This team can choke like no other.

    Why ramos didn't set outside when Christenson wasn't even ready to go up to block I'll never know, Siki would have had no blockers up instead he went right to Sedore who had two blockers on him jeez.

  10. Cindy Luis:

    Timmer 1-0-1, Sedore 1-0-7, Averill 3-1-5, Marks 1-2-8, Zarkovic 2-0-8, Holt 1-0-2. For SC
    Jansen 3-2-7, Christenson 0-1-1, Rivero 3-1-9, Feathers 4-0-5, Kirchner 1-0-1, Booth 6-2-15.

  11. Cindy Luis:

    UH 3-1 edge in aces, 5-3.5 edge in blocks. SC with 6SEs, UH with 5 SEs.
    Digs: SC 19, UH 15.

  12. Cindy Luis:

    UH led Set 2 3-0. Rivero with 2 straight aces, puts SC up 4-3.

  13. Cindy Luis:

    WF, was thinking the same thing. could have even dumped it.
    SC on an 8-1 run, lead 8-4. TO UH

  14. Cindy Luis:

    Not a good night. SC up 15-7 at the TTO. was expecting a little more from the Warriors tonight.

  15. warriorfan:

    I am very discouraged by the downward spiral this team is taking. I think Wade needs to do some lineup changes, put in Max at setter and a new libero, maybe take siki out as well.

  16. Cindy Luis:

    Thinking they need to make a change soon. Olsen in for Marks. UH still down 16-8.

  17. Cindy Luis:

    Christianson with an ace 18-8. TO UH.

  18. Cindy Luis:

    LIkely too little too late, SC up 19-12. TO Trojans.

  19. Aloha73G:

    Felt like the wheels fell off early in set after a pretty good start :-/

  20. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors not folding, have rallied to 20-16. TO UH. Sedore serving.

  21. Cindy Luis:

    UH holds off 3 set points, not a fourth. SC wins 25-21.

  22. warriorfan:

    Ramo's set location the past two weeks has been awful. Even on freeballs he makes poor sets.

  23. Cindy Luis:

    UH hits .222 for set 2. they were at 000 midway through. SC at 236.
    SC with 26 digs, UH 15.. both teams with 5 aces, UH 10 SEs, SC with 8.
    Totals for 2 sets
    Timmer 1-0-1, Sedore 8-2-18, Averill 3-1-6, Marks 2-3-13, Zarkovic 4-1-12, Holt 2-0-4.
    Jansen 6-2-10, Rivera 5-3-14, Feathers 4-1-7, Kirchner 3-1-5, Booth 9-2-21.

  24. Cindy Luis:

    yep, at home with a cold that started last friday at the arena. glad I wasn't over there when Christenson went flying over where I have been.
    I do think they need to change something up.

  25. Alohilani:

    Too painful to watch

  26. Cindy Luis:

    Agree. so much potential and they just can't be consistent. UH up 8-4 on some great serves.

  27. Cindy Luis:

    UH hanging on to the lead, 15-13 at the TTO.

  28. Cindy Luis:

    And just like that, SC scores 3 straight. takes the lead at 16-15. TO UH.

  29. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore with a kill, UH up 20-19. TO SC.

  30. Cindy Luis:

    Marks & Averill with the block. UH serving for the Set 24-23. TO SC.

  31. Cindy Luis:

    Averill with the stuff. UH wins 25-22

  32. Cindy Luis:

    UH hit .280 for Set 3, SC .259. SC still way ahead on digs which has kept a lot of rallies alive 36-19. play of the set may have been Zarkovic's solo stuff of Jansen. Instead of SC leading 21-20, UH takes the lead at 21-20.
    UH with 11 blocks, SC with 5.
    UH with 8 aces, SC with 7. both teams with 14 SEs. Sedore with 11 kills leads the Warriors. Booth with 13 and Jansen with 12 for the Trojans.

  33. Cindy Luis:

    I see this going 5, anyone else?

  34. Cindy Luis:

    Maybe not. Poor set to Holt. SC leads 4-1. Booth with his 15th makes it 5-1

  35. Cindy Luis:

    SC has pulled away at 8-2. TO UH.

  36. volleyball fan:

    I'm afraid it won't go to five. Seems like a repeat of Northridge.

  37. warriorfan:

    I know people will think im a Joby Ramos hater, but his setting is just not up to par im sorry.

  38. Cindy Luis:

    Zarkovic with his eighth kill, and now an ace, pulls UH to 9-6. That is UH's 9th ace tonight.

  39. Cindy Luis:

    don't think you're a hater. the sets aren't great, but many times the pass has been very tight to the net. surprised he hasn't been called for nets.

  40. Cindy Luis:

    Another mis-set to Holt. Think he's jumping too early, SC up 15-9 at the TTO.

  41. Cindy Luis:

    Hawaii closes to 17-14. TO SC.

  42. Cindy Luis:

    Nice up by Cheape and Zarkovic out of the back row, pulls Uh to 20-17.

  43. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore with his 15th kill, makes it 20-18.

  44. Cindy Luis:

    they made the right call on that one. Marks attack was off the block into the atenna. They miseed that one though when the Trojan went under the net. Zarkovic with another kill. it's 22-20

  45. Cindy Luis:

    Averill with the block. it's 22-21. TO SC.

  46. Cindy Luis:

    SC with match point at 24-21. TO UH.

  47. Cindy Luis:

    wow, Olsen with the overpass. ties it at 24. great serving by Sedore.

  48. Cindy Luis:

    Block for UH, makes it 25-24.

  49. Cindy Luis:

    ace by Sedore ends it. on to 5

  50. volleyball fan:

    I'll be the first to admit I was wrong. I'm glad they proved me wrong. I won't make any predictions for the fifth set. Cindy, you were right, you sure had unshakable faith.

  51. Cubicle1126:

    that 4th set ending was just ridiculous! so fun to watch. this team likes to play from behind, and that 4th set was kind of a microcosm of the season so far.

    sedore serving with ice in his veins.

    here's hoping they can carry that momentum into a win in the 5th.

  52. Cubicle1126:

    usc might still be shell-shocked from set 4. this match was supposed to be over. maybe they can't believe they're still playing ...

    c'mon warriors!

  53. Cubicle1126:

    usc has as many Hawaii players (cassiday, christensen and lam) on their side of the court as Hawaii right now (ramos, cheape, holt)

  54. Cubicle1126:

    sedore with a yellow card for talking through the net ... looks like some of CSUN's antics from last week followed hawaii to this match tonight ...

  55. Cubicle1126:

    definitely the most entertaining comeback (and win) for hawaii this year ... and this team has had a lot of comebacks this season.

    congrats to hawaii and wade for the win!

  56. Alohilani:

    Wow - enough said

  57. Cindy Luis:

    Sorry, had to file a story for the first edition so Tsai could get quotes.
    great win for Uh. surprised that the yellow went to Sedore. SC guys looked to be jabbering at the ref more.
    Oh, I didn't have any faith that it would go five. It just had that feeling when I wrote it. Didn't think SC wasn't playing that well.

  58. Cindy Luis:

    will be starting a new thread for the rewind with some stats.
