That was just the oddest play. Never seen it before. Looked like UOP's Troy lost the ball in the lights. Ball came back down in front of him. and he didn't even attempt a dig.
Joby with a back row attack Pulls UH to 8-9.
Hughes with a kill gives UOP the 15-14 lead at the TTO. Neither team hitting well. UOP .160 but 5-1-25, UH 10-6-27 .148. UOP with 4.5 blocks, UH 0. Uh 16 digs 7 by Marks.
UOP 0 aces, 2 SEs. UH 1 ace 4 SEs.
true the setting had been off for UH but not all on Ramos, he took a lot of first balls.
UH came up to 216 for set 1 16-8-37. Sedore 2-1-8, Averill 4-0-4, Marks 3-4-12 Zarkovic 5-2-10, Holt 1-1-2.
UOP 9-4-35 for 143. Uh 1 block, the set ender, UOP with 5.5
Warriors 3 aces, 5 SEs, UOP 0 aces 2 SEs. 19 digs for the Warriors, Marks with 8. Tigers with 11 digs
marks called for the 3-meter error, don't think that was the play. think it was designed for Averill. Ramos then went over to Averill, said something, and he and Averill connected for a kill. Ace by Zarkovic makes it 10-4.
was just about to say that Marks is having an off night. UOP has been targeting him on the serve. 14 times, Cheape 10 and Zarkovic 6. marks with the service overpass that Troy puts down. What was a 16-11 lead is not 16-14. TO UH.
Yes, you gotta love West.
UH hit 207 for the set, 13-7-29, Sedore 6-4-16, AVerill 8-0-8, Marks 4-5-16, Zarkovic 8-2-17, Holt 2-2-6, UH with 3.5 total blocks, UOP with 7.5
Tigers hit 174 in Set 2 9-5-23.
Warriors 6 aces, 10 SEs, Tigers 0 aces, 6 SEs. 4 came in Set 2.
Warrios with 11 digs, Marks with 11. Tigers with 18
this is just plain weird and poorly planned.
They're going to present senior plaques to the 'olympic sports athletes. Most of the crowd is gone. they usually do this in between Sets 2 and 3. TV still doing post game. just really, really odd
why not do this tomorrow?
45: Cindy, and why don't they announce beforehand, i.e., before that night, that they are going to be doing that presentation? I'm sure that there are friends/family/supporters of those olympic sport seniors who would attend for that senior ceremony. I'm a little disappointed that little things like this that could easily be fixed are still happening under Ben Jay's leadership. Budgets/capital improvements are things that take a long time and long-term planning. Things like this shouldn't take several months on the job to make sure that they don't occur. Re: Alohi's comment in 46: I don't disagree with the decision to play the CIT game on Wednesday, but then why not use your vaunted H-Mail system to send out an email blast to all your subscribers immediately (Sunday night) with ticket and promotion information. Yes, they put it on their website, but with only 3 days to sell tickets, why wouldn't you use all the resources at your disposal to try to maximize attendance and avoid incurring a loss? I expect better from UH and everyone should, too.
46. yes they did agree to pay to play on Wednesday but they aren't the ones who set the schedule, the CIT does. Very much like the NIT or WNIT. They ask schools when their facilities are available. and you have to take into consideration the travel time to get to Hawaii. The choices for a first round were Wednesday and Thursday.
Thought there was an H-Mail sent.
Don't know why they didn't announce it before hand to the general public. I'm sure the family and friends of the Olympic sports knew about it. But, honestly, the sports were track & field, swimming and cheerleading. (perhaps I missed some) How many supporters are there at the meets?
Just thought it was weird about the senior night timing. Usually done in between Sets 2 & 3. I think the halftime promotion got in the way. This is the first time it was done this way so why blame Jay for this?
I put it on Moniz-Kaho'ohanohano who oversees the Olympic sports. If it was up to me, I would have done it at the senior night for men's volleyball in between Sets 2 & 3.
I wasn't talking about the timing of the basketball game. I was talking about the fact that the school would even agree to pay to play. With all the financial problems the school is having, why even play such a game. On the other hand, when they take away Rainbows after July 1, who is going to stop the fans from saying Let's go Bows. Don't see it happening unless the school starts making some money by charging fans for saying Lets go Bows. Ha ha just a thought.
