Quite the night. Was stuck writing on deadline, the rewriting.
sorry that I couldn't offer live posts.
Banachowski stayed out of it until Shoji called him out of the stands. Thought Shoji did a really nice job of his post match speech. was funny and humble.
anyway, UH hit 303 for set 4, ended up 12-6.5 edge in blocks. after being outblocked 3-0 in Set 1. UH had 6 blocks in Set 2
They are re-doing the box cause it has the wrong final score. 25-18. should be 25-17. not sure if it affects the kills or what.
Taylro 2-1-0, Vorster 10-0-13, 3 BA
Uiato 5-0-7, Hartong 20-8-54, Adolpho 8-4-15, Goodman 3-0-3, Tuaniga 0-1-2, Kastl 1-0-5. 4 aces, 2 SE. 60 digs, 14 by Hartong, 13 by Longo.
Santa Clara hit 119 in Set 4. Hess 19-8-54, Anders 13-5-3
4 aces, 12 SE, 48 digs.
most impressive was in Set 4, it was 14-14. UH finished it out 11-3 run. something that hasn't happened for a while.
Thought Hartong took over at the end. some great defense on both sides. Times like tonight when I wish I could enjoy the match more but just get so busy now with the online stuff.
We'll see how the team comes back tomorrow. It was a pretty emotional night. But they finished it on a high note, playing really well at the end. The speed of the offense in Set 4 was very quick and Hawaii made all the right plays.
Have a good night.
