  1. Warrior Dave:

  2. Warrior Dave:

    Sucks to be home sick. I miss the live action and excitement.

  3. Cindy Luis:

    May not be able to update as much. you can follow along at home live stats

  4. Cindy Luis:

    Hawaii opens with a very diversified offense. Hartong with second oil. 11-7 UH.

  5. Cindy Luis:

    UH serving very tough. Sealy didn't wait for the TTO. Calls timeout at 14-9

  6. Beauston:

    As igly as U LA is playing right now, I hope the Wahine knows it will be short live. They are playing much better. Would like to see Hartong get pass those double blocks.

  7. Cindy Luis:

    Kastl in for Manu-Olevao, more for passing. Taylor with the overpass. 19-13.

  8. Warrior Dave:

    I'm so happy for Kastl!!! She's playing so well.

  9. Warrior Dave:

    Whooo Hooooo Wahine take game 1!!!

  10. Beauston:

    This is when Sealy and team adjust, this is where Wahine need to hold their ground in front of almost sold out crowd. Lets go Bows. Everyone knows, it about time we gave it back to UCLA.

  11. Cindy Luis:

    sorry, we'll see how long this connection lasts

    UH wins 25-19. 3 of UCLA's points on UH service errors

  12. Cindy Luis:

    UH hit 333. Taylor 4-0-5,

  13. Cindy Luis:

    just announced official sellout

  14. RedZone:

    Just me but I am kinda waiting for UCLA to wake up. This is the most important set for UH.

  15. mark:

    shoji should have let kastl played instead of olevao...kastl's on fire at the end of first set..

  16. Beauston:

    14. Agreed. An they did.

  17. Beauston:

    Tai is in a funk. Put Kastl back in.

  18. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA going a lot ot short serves. but think UH passers handling pretty well.

  19. Cindy Luis:

    2 lefts by Stauber. UH up 14-12.

  20. Cindy Luis:

    Adolpho on the 'Molokai slide' UH up 15-13 at the TTO.

  21. Jon:

    Put Kastl back in!!

  22. Beauston:

    Olevao now hitting negative. She just need to settle down. Shes doing good passing.

  23. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA hits long. Wahine up 19-16. TO Bruins.

  24. Cindy Luis:

    Hartong with 2 straight kills. UH up 21-16. TO Bruins. Uiato still serving. it's been creating a lot of problems UCLA.

  25. John:

    Looking good. I just hope Em can last and doesn't get too gassed.

  26. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins bring in their third setter. the freshman ends 6-0 run. But Hartong with her third service aces. UH wins 25-17.

  27. RedZone:

    It's the Emily Hartong show.

  28. Warrior Dave:

    Wow, went to make a call and when I came back, Wahine leading and win set #2!!!

    Roll on Wahine!!!

  29. Cindy Luis:

    Hartong with 10 kills, 3 aces. UCLA outblocking UH 6-5, most of those on Hartong predictable sets.
    UH's has done a really good job on Lowe. They usually have trouble with left-handed hitters. Lowe 5-5-10. hitting .000.

  30. John:

    Is there anyway we can clone Hartong and bring her back every season?? Is that legal? :P

  31. Cindy Luis:

    Taylor 5-2-9, Vorster 4-1-6, Olevao 4-5-15, Hartong 10-4-24, Adolpho 5-1-8, Kasl 2-0-3

  32. Cindy Luis:

    UH outdigging the Bruins 24-19. Longo with 7, Uiato with 8. Not sure why UCLA isn't playing Droison, who was among the dig leaders coming in. she has a brief appearance, has 1.

  33. Kazu:

    How loud is it in the arena? Watching on tv its hard to tell,doesn't sound to loud for a sell out. Kastl doing well.

  34. Aloha73G:

    It's LOUD and HOT in here

  35. Beauston:

    Hiranaka-sp? Wants his 2minute of fane again. Only this time, it favored Wahine.

  36. Cindy Luis:

    Nice that they got the right call when they overall the double contact. It was a closed fist.
    UH up 13-9. In their bet rotation with Uiato serving. TO UCLA
    10,300 tickets. 9664 turnstile

  37. Beauston:

    Drolson now the Libero it looks like.

  38. RedZone:

    Thankyou Wayne.

  39. haleiwacrossfitter:

    Th one thing I would like to see Wahine get better at is covering the blocks. It almost always goes down when one of our hitters gets blocked, with almost no one even close sometimes.

  40. Cindy Luis:

    Yes, she is. Reeves serve looked wide. called it an ace. She nets the next attempt. UH up 14-11

  41. Beauston:

    I can see the ding fest coming.

  42. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins hit wide. it's 21-17. TO Bruins.

  43. Jon:

    They actually have covered the block well this game... Twice in one rally at one point.

  44. Maverick:

    Wahine seem to play very well when they face established, high ranking teams. If they can maintain their intensity, especially against the lesser foes, then they will be very scary at tournament time.

  45. Cindy Luis:

    wahine win 25-18. back in a bit

  46. Beauston:

    Player of the match-Mita Uiato for spreading the offense around.
    At home, but definitely can see how the crowd helped the Wahine.

  47. jmy:

    Great play in front of 10300...take that Huskers!

  48. RedZone:

    Yep Mita, Hartong and Adolpho.

  49. RedZone:

    And Longo.

  50. Warrior Dave:

    When the middles are clicking like tonight, anything is possible!!!

    Congrats Wahine awesome and convincing win!!!

  51. surfboy:

    who was the MVP of the tourney?

  52. volleyball fan:

    Well, Warrior, Dave (formerly Dedicated Fan according to Beauston), I have one comment. Hawaii won despite Tai Manu Olevao who was yanked from the match after hitting negative. Ashley Kastl played much better this week. So I believe that Hawaii would have lost to Santa Clara last week even if Tai had played. And here you spouted off a whole slew of angry comments on Tai Mano-Olevao. So now she proved you wrong. We need Ashley Kastl to improve as she's one of the seniors so we have every right to expect more out of her.

  53. RedZone:


  54. Cindy Luis:

    51. Hartong. See new thread for all-tourney team
    52. BTW, WD is not DF.

  55. Warrior Dave:

    Volleyball Fan,

    I have no idea what you talking about by saying I'm someone other than myself.

    Stephen Tsai can tell when someone uses multiple names to post. I only use Warrior Dave, I suggest you ask Cindy to do the same so you and Breaston can shut the hell up.

    I back the Wahine win or lose and am offended that you and Breaston accuse me of spewing hate on certain players as someone else. Please get your facts straight.

  56. Warrior Dave:

    Thank you Cindy for clearing my name.

  57. Maverick:

    57. WD clearly is not the other guy. His posts make sense.

  58. manu:

    Wow...Missed a lot of posts. And Wow....UCLA didn't reach 20 points on each set. What a great game. The reckoning was done.

    Adolpho got the player of the match, and I see how much she has improved. She's definitly faster getting to each side of the net now.
