  1. Cindy Luis:

    Vorster with a kill. UH up 8-3. TO Arizona.


  2. Beauston:

    Common for Adolpho 's 10th kill


  3. Cindy Luis:

    60. and got it right.


  4. Beauston:

    Ahhh and she got it!


  5. Beauston:

    Middles putting up set 4 for the bows


  6. Cindy Luis:

    45. Coming into the match, Kawamura has 4 aces, 12 SEs, the most errors of any wahine.


  7. Cindy Luis:

    Snuka taps it back off the block. her third kill. Torres with a kill. Arizona closes to 15-12. TO UH.


  8. Cindy Luis:

    Adolpho with her 12th kill. UH has pulled away to 19-13


  9. Cindy Luis:

    hmmmm. UH had a comfortable lead 22-15. Now 23-20. TO UH. Harris making a big difference at the net at 6-8.


  10. WaWa:

    Weak play at the net by Vorster, volleying the ball back over.


  11. Cindy Luis:

    UH served twice for match point. Hartong blocked twice. Tuaniga in at 24-22


  12. Cindy Luis:

    Drives me nuts. Hartong blocked again 24-23.


  13. Cindy Luis:

    but not a fourth time, Hartong with her 21st ends it. 25-23


  14. jmy:

    Terrible blocking stat by UH...They really need to start blocking better...


  15. Beauston:

    That did not make sense to me but oh well it worked.
    It will be interesting with Croson on the line up.


  16. RedZone:

    Dave said he told Mita to go to Hartong at the end. I was going nuts too.


  17. RedZone:

    Tuaniga was open.


  18. Beauston:

    64 thanks to Arizona's 15.5 blocks, Olevao and Hartong's hit% are below .200


  19. Warriorfan:

    Mita ( and dave) need to be less predictable, and Emily really needs to hit smarter ( she did not this match)


  20. Beauston:

    Tough match for the wahine but kudos to them for hanging around.


  21. RedZone:

    Mita is the MVP.


  22. Cindy Luis:

    be back in a bit. but all-tourney team Uiato (MOP), Hartong, Adolpho; from Arizona Kingon and Magill; Patton from PSU and NU's Stephanie Holthus.
    Nice that Kahuku VB team was here to cheer on UA setter Penina, who played for Kahuku last year. They stayed and sang the alma mater

  24. LanaiBoy:

    Looks like Arizona decided that it would not be beat by Hartong; tracked her with two blockers all night long; Rubio was mad when Hartong was left uncovered in her back row attacks. This left the right and middle with one blocker or late arriving 2nd blockers all night, of which Adolpho and Taylor took advantage. Good for them. Vorster still not taking good swings but still effective enough. Sort of irritated when Kawamura, Mendoza, and Long had five service errors among them. Hey, they are suppose to be serving and back row specialists. Sort of forgive them because they give opponents trouble when their serves do go in, especially Kawamura. Her jump float dances.


  25. Sharene:

    I was disappointed that UA did not show for the awards ceremony. That was bad form. I thought it was a bit of poor sportsmanship. The pictures just show UH.


  26. Cindy Luis:

    76. Not poor sportsmanship. they had a plane to catch. believe the flight was at 11. They would have been in trouble if it had gone 5. Not the first time a team was a no-show at the end because of needing to get to the airport. UH has shipped a lot of awards out over the years because teams had to leave. Texas was gone at 5 a.m. the Sunday for the opening tournament. may have been back in Austin by the time UH played USD.
