  4. Cindy Luis:

    Starting: S Ramos, OH Sedore, Olsen, MB: West, Holt. Opp: Averill. L: Cheape.

  5. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 5-0 early. Cougars 28-5 the past two season at Smith. TO UH.

  6. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 15-10 at the media timeout. tough place to serve and it's affecting Warriors' serving. 3 SEs so far.

  7. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 19-13. TO Warriors. Averill 3=0-3 in his start at opp Olsen 2-0-2. Sedore 4-2-7. they're stacking the block on him. Holt 1-1-3. West without an attempt.

  8. Cindy Luis:

    Zarkovic in to serve. BYU up 23-19. now 24-19

  9. Cindy Luis:

    Averill blocked on a tip. win 25-19.

  10. Warriorfan:

    Not much Taylor could do with that horrible set. I like him at opposite he's looks good.

  11. Cindy Luis:

    Some stats. Warriors hit 409, 1 ace, 5 SEs, 0 blocks, 4 digs.
    Averill 5-1-6, Sedore 4-2-8, Olsen 2-0-2, Holt 2-1-4,

  12. Cindy Luis:

    Byu hit 684, 14-1-19. 1 aces, 3 SE. 3 blocks. 3 digs.
    Patch 5-1-7, Sander 5-0-7, Rivera 2-0-3, Boyce 1-0-1, Young 1-0-1,

  13. Warriorfan:

    Taylor Averill is soo good. I wish UH had 6 of him, dude can do it all.

  14. Cindy Luis:

    Hawaii playing much better in Set 2. they've led by as much as 3 but now 1 12-11. and 14-12.

  15. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors up 15-13 at the TTO.

  16. Cindy Luis:

    Olsen with 2 consecutive aces, lead 17-13. T'O BYU.

  17. Cindy Luis:

    for the curious, BYU has lost twice at home. to Lewis 3-2, to Long Beach 3-2
    Their road losses are at Pepperdine 3-2, at UCLA 3-0 on April 6, a night after rallying past host UCSB in five.

  18. Warriorfan:

    UH block and backrow defense has been soo anemic :(

  19. Cindy Luis:

    Cougars come back to 17-15. TO UH.

  20. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore with another kill, up 20-16.

  21. Cindy Luis:

    Hitting error by Sander makes it 22-17. TO BYU

  22. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors serving for the set 24-19.

  23. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors with their first block ends the set 25-20.

  24. Warriorfan:

    They finally got a stuff on Sander, love it.

  25. Warriorfan:

    If UH picks up it's blocking and can get some more digs they can win this.

  26. Cubicle1126:

    agree WF ... and also maybe cut down on the service errors a little.

    warriors playing very loose ... and really, they've got nothing to lose. all the pressure is on BYU.

  27. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors hit 478 for Set 2. 3 aces, 2 SEs. 1 block, 8 digs
    combined stats: Sedore 10-3-17, Averill 9-2-14, Olsen 4-0-4, Holt 3-1-6. West 1-1-2.
    Cougars .160 in Set 2, 2 aces, 5 aces, 2. 5 blocks, 6 digs.
    Cpmbined: Patch 9-2-14, Sander 6-4-14, Rivera 3-0-8, Young 3-0-3, Lavaja 2-0-3.

  28. Warriorfan:

    OKay Ramos is struggling in this set, darn.

  29. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors down 7-4 in Set 3. TO UH.

  30. Cindy Luis:

    Passing not that great. Lot of off-plays going down for the Cougars.

  31. Cindy Luis:

    Ace Olsen's ace brings the Warriors to 7-5.

  32. Cindy Luis:

    BYU coach Chris McGown yellow carded should be a point. when he argues a back-row block. UH ties it temporarily at 7. BYU 2 straight points for a 9-7. lead.

  33. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors tie it at 11. TO BYU.
    McGown is the son of former BYUH and BYU men's coach, and UH volunteer assistant under Mike Wilton, who is an assistant now with the Cougars.

  34. Haushinka:

    It's actually on channel 409

  35. Cindy Luis:

    two blocks by UH give the Warriors the 15-12 lead at the TTO.

  36. Cindy Luis:

    thanks. 409 is right

  37. Cindy Luis:

    no touch overrules a touch call. a bit of a swing. UH up 16-13.

  38. Warriorfan:

    Okay here comes the home cooking.

  39. Cindy Luis:

    ace by Byu brings the Cougars to 16-15.

  40. Cindy Luis:

    Ever since that questionable call, BYU takes control. 16-16 TO. UH. Would have been 17-12 if Olsen had gotten the touch and Cougars in a bad rotation with their setter in the front row.

  41. Cubicle1126:

    hawaii still scrapping ... but ramos' setting location is letting us down in the middle of set 3 .... he's been hot and cold all match

  42. vballfreak808:

    That one tip by Olsen did get a touch and that switched momentum a lot. So unfair for Hawaii

  43. Warriorfan:

    Ramos was really great in set 2 I dont know what has happened.

  44. Warriorfan:

    poor Jace always gets the wrong side of bad calls.

  45. Cindy Luis:

    Olsen gets the Call in to tie at 19.

  46. Cindy Luis:

    Serve tough but not in the net. it's 20-20. kill by Sedore makes it 21-20.

  47. Cubicle1126:

    set 3... so tense

  48. Cindy Luis:

    BYU setter with another overreach, gives UH set point 24-22.

  49. Cindy Luis:

    Wow, ace by Sedore wins it 25-22.

  50. Warriorfan:

    Wow way to go warriors, getting it done despite some questionable calls against them.

  51. Cubicle1126:

    wow ... impressed that hawaii held on there ... so many times this season we've seen them tense up when it's been tight at the end of the set ...

  52. Cubicle1126:

    averill has been an INCREDIBLE surprise .... we knew he could play a lot of positions. but he and sedore matching the output of byu's sander/patch has been huge!

  53. Cindy Luis:

    Set 3, UH hits 333. 2 aces, 3 SEs.
    combined: Sedore 13-3-21, Averill 11-4-19, HOlt 7-1-10, Olsen 6-1-13, West 3-1-7.Ramos 25 assists, Wechsung 12. 4.5 blocks.
    I like Wechsung's setting. much more comfortable setting the middles.
    BYU hits 269 in Set 3. 1 ace, 5 SEs.
    Patch 16-4.26, Sander 8-5-19, River 4-0-10, Lavaja 3-0-7, Boyce 1-3-4. 6.5 blocks.

  54. Warriorfan:

    Joby's low sets are killing me!!

  55. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 13-7 in Set 4. dare we say 5?

  56. Warriorfan:

    okay now they are just making too many mental mistakes.

  57. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 16-7.

  58. Cindy Luis:

    Net roll ace makes it 17-7. TO UH.

  59. Cubicle1126:

    byu rolling now .... regroup before this set is over, and just go all out in the 5th

  60. Warriorfan:

    I don't like UH's body language at all in this, instead of going for the kill seems like they are just happy to not have been blown out.

  61. Cindy Luis:

    Well, don't think you pack it in. You try to build some momentum. But it is 20-10.

  62. Cindy Luis:

    As for five-setters,
    BYU 4-3 2-2 at home
    UH 7-6, 1-3 on the road.

  63. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore blocked, BYU wins 25-12.

  64. Warriorfan:

    two huge mistakes already jeez.

  65. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors up 4-3 in Set 5 on Sedore's ace. TO BYU.

  66. Warriorfan:

    Okay the timmer serving sub magic is pau.

  67. Cindy Luis:

    Averill with a kill pulls the Warriors to 7-6

  68. Cubicle1126:

    holy crap what a pancake dig by the byu setter boyce !!

  69. Cindy Luis:

    Sander tip goes wide ties it at 7

  70. Cindy Luis:

    BYU up 8-7 at the changeover.

  71. Cubicle1126:

    hawaii has contained sander at times ... but has never been able to stop patch ... if hawaii can only just get a key/timely block on patch this set ... it could make all the difference ...

  72. Cindy Luis:

    not looking good, BYU up 10-8. UH thinks about a TO but no.

  73. Cindy Luis:

    surprised Wade doesn't call a timeout. at 11-9

  74. Cindy Luis:

    Wow, block by Averill ties it at 11. TO BYU.

  75. Cubicle1126:

    there's a block on patch ... ties it at 11 !

  76. Cubicle1126:

    c'mon warriors!

  77. Cubicle1126:

    byu servers are tight ... 2 errors in a row on the serve for them now

    damn ... sedore feels it too ... serves way long

  78. Cindy Luis:

    Another BYU SE ties it at 12. you could almost see that service error by Sedore coming 13-12.

  79. Cubicle1126:

    olsen clutch kill on an out of system play 13s

  80. Cindy Luis:

    BYU serving for the match 14-13. TO UH.

  81. Cubicle1126:

    damn the block looked like it could've been on byu's side

  82. Cubicle1126:

    Holy sh*t ... what the hell!

  83. Cindy Luis:

    Ramos called for over the net violation. 15-13.
    didn't see it. what do you think?

  84. Warriorfan:

    Sorry but u dont make that call on match point, home cooking at its best.

  85. Cindy Luis:

    not home cooking with the refs are brought in. but agree you don't call it on match point.

  86. JS:

    Two plays before match point, BYU left side hitter was under the line. Not called.:-[

  87. jmy:

    Was it Ramos over the net or West under? Either way, awful way to end...It's some consolation that they made BYU look anything like the #1 seed...

  88. Don:

    West was under the net before UH made the kill...R1 overruled and gave BYU the match...

    That's home cooking for ya...

  89. jmy:

    Would have been nice for UH to win, especially since BYU is in the final four no matter what...

  90. Cubicle1126:

    what a crappy crappy crappy call by the refs ... that is an absolutely disgusting way for the refs to inject themselves into an incredible match ... and have a "call" determine the end of the match, instead of just letting them play! an absolute shame that hawaii loses that way.

    still - at the end of the day, Hawaii left everything out there on the court ... using a lineup they'd never used before, they played their hearts out. proud of the fight in the warriors tonight!

  91. Haushinka:

    Great game. Great season for UH. Next year will be the year. Count on it

  92. Warriorfan:

    thats such a dumb rule, I know its for the safety of the players but BYU got away with at least 3-4 of those the whole match. UGH.

  93. Haushinka:

    Sedore will be a beast next year.

  94. wf:

    good last match for a bad year....but a close loss is still a loss that doesn't get you any further in playoffs.

  95. vballfreak808:

    It was a sad way to end this match. I at least wish BYU possibly earned their match point better but what happens, happens.

    Looking forward to the Warriors next year!

  96. jmy:

    Are there other matches going on today? Anybody got the scores?

  97. Warriorfan:

    I think Sedore needs to work on consistency and hitting more off speed shots. If he does he could be a POY candidate.

    I think to have a really great year Wade needs to bring in a top libero, and a top setter and of course a replacement for JP at OH.

    I think UH may have found it's OPP in Taylor tonight, so might have to bring in another middle.

  98. Ron:

    Hawaii played a great game and deserved better from the refs. Wade has a lot to build on for next year. He needs to figure out sooner who is ready to play at this level. It was a good match to watch regardless of the outcome. BYU may think they won but they had the s--t scared out of them. I hate BYU!

  99. Cindy Luis:

    I believe the call was on Ramos for the back-row blocker. didn't see it but sounded like it was a 50-50 ball according to radio.

  100. Cindy Luis:

    be back in a bit with stats and other MSPF quarters.

  101. Warriorfan:

    Then that was a bad call the ball was completely on hawaii's side when Ramos set it. Ugh.

  102. Down:

    That was match was awesome... besides the end result. Next year seems so promising now.

  103. Cindy Luis:

    Long Beach sweeps Stanford 25-21, 25-17, 30-28
    UCLA sweeps Pepperdine, 25-19, 25-18, 25-18
    UCSB at UCI going to 5

  104. Cindy Luis:

    Going to start a new thread, both with other MPSF scores & uh-byu rewind.

  105. volleyball fan:

    I was gone all day and now I read all the blogs. The one surprise for me is that the match went to five. UH Warriors can be proud that they took the BYU Cougars to the limit. Too bad it had to end so anticlimactically and questionably on such a controversial call.
