Certainly a very good win for Hawaii tonight. Think the concern was the potential letdown for the Wahine after such an emotinal high of last night.
Be interesting to see the poll Monday with all the upsets.
Thought they had a nice game plan on Lowe. She was hitting .000 through Set 2. ended up 7-5-20. We know how UH traditionally does against left-handers. UCLA hit 169.
Reeves finally got going 8-1-20. Looks a lot like her mom who also played for the Bruins in the 80s: Jeanne Beauprey.
UH outblocks UCLA 9-7. The Bruins ran a pretty slow offense and allowed the Wahine to get a lot of touches. just watching both Hartong and Adolpho focus on their timing to go up on the block was impressive.
Wahine with a 32-24 edge in digs, Longo with 11. and, as someone pointed out, very nice set distribution by Uiato. Wahine hit .304.
Taylor 6-4-12 but some key kills.; Vorster 7-1-9; Manu-Olevao 4-5-15; Hartong 15-4-33, 5-0-9 in Set 3, 3 aces, 1 BS, 3 BA; Adolpho 7-1-12, 1 BS, 4 BA; Long 1-0-1 with the match-ender from the right; Kastl 4-0-9.
It was 86 minutes of consistant play by Hawaii, as reflected by the set scores. Another good finish for the second straight night;
It was 15-15. UH closes it 10-3.
Bruins with 1 ace, 6 SEs; Wahine 5 aces, 9 SEs; UH served very tough. UCLA's passing was horrid, balls flying all over the court.
Arena cleared out and the AC is working well. It did get hot in here for a bit. Crowd was great.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
