Thought Hawaii had its most efficient night, hitting .451. just six hitting errors. Had twice as many service errors (12) which might be the only negative of the night.
Someone mentioned on the other thread they'd give the game ball to Uiato. Can't argue with that. She set a really nice match, recognized the block, got her hitters a lot of 1-on-1s. Thought maybe too many swings for Hartong (26) when she could have gone elsewhere. Went to Adolpho 17 times. Kalei with just 1 error over 2 nights with 18 kills on 31 attempts.
Longo was solid on D, had 10 of the 38 digs. UH with 10 blocks. Northwestern set a high slow ball and the Wahine were quick to set up.
Arizona will be an interesting matchup. They do have height. including a 6-8 freshman in Harris; legit 6-8 but didn't do much tonight in brief appearances (1 BA in 2 sets)
Arizona does play pretty good defense, out dug PSU 90-75. But they got caught in some really bad rotations and gave up strings of points.
Not much also to say. think Shoji didn't sub more (he used all but Ponce) because he didn't want to prolong the match.
Overall a good night for Hawaii. Heading out to Kailua. good night.
