Hawaii 3, South Dakota 0 live updates
September 19th, 2013

Wahine a little laet in starting, guess because of the earlier non-tourney match for Wichita State and SEMO?

starting for Hawaii, Hartong, Taylor, Vorster, Adolpho, Manu-Olevao, Uiato, and Longo.

oddly enough, WSU stats has Hagins starting for UH. think they didn't update with Taylor.

  7. Cindy Luis:

    6. slow start yes, UH settling in against a team that plays softer than UH does practice. they will adjust
    UH up 19-16 TO SD

  8. Cindy Luis:

    UH up 24-19. TO SD

  9. Maverick:

    Hagins is having a bad match so far.

  10. Cindy Luis:

    wahine win 25-19. stats in a bit

  11. manu:

    Hawaii wins 1st set. 25 - 19. Does my eyes deceive me? Stephanie Hagins?

  12. Cindy Luis:

    Hagins should be Taylor in the box.

  13. Beauston:

    11 shes back for this match only.

  14. Volleyball fan:

    Maverick, Hagins is no longer with us. Haven't you noticed that they made an error in live stats? I think they meant Nikki Taylor who probably got Stephanie Hagin's number I presume.

  15. Maverick:

    Danielson will be subbing in for Hartong. Ah Mow coming in for Uiato. Shoji at libero.

  16. Beauston:

    6 but I paid for vid/audio

  17. Cindy Luis:

    UH hit 262. Manu-Olevao 5-1-11, Hartong 5-2-13, Vorter 3-0-7, Taylor 2-3-7, Adolpho 2-1-4,
    SD hit 081.
    more stats at

  18. Maverick:

    16. I'm thinking about asking for a refund. No audio, no purchase.

  19. manu:

    OK. Just saw the mix-up. supposed to be Nikki Taylor

  20. Cindy Luis:

    yes, have said that twice that it's Taylor not Hagins. '-)

  21. Cindy Luis:

    16. you can get live stats for free. i didn't know you had paid for audio. shouldn't deter you from going to game tracker

  22. Cindy Luis:

    SD has switched liberos. former libero goes to OH.
    It's 8-8. TO UH.

  23. Beauston:

    South Dakota going toe to toe with Wahine. Hmmmm

  24. Maverick:

    16. I believe there is no audio because there is no broadcast of this non-Wichita st. game. So looks like video only. You can listed to 1420, but there is a delay between the audio and the video. Sucks.

  25. Cindy Luis:

    23. wouldn't put too much into it. as mentioned, you've got a team that doesn't play to the speed hawaii sees in practice. they will adjust to the softball shots UH on an 3-0 run up 11-8

  26. Cindy Luis:

    but as we know, Hawaii hasn't been great against the dink. wahine expecting even the soft shot to be hit harder . UH down 15-13.

  27. Volleyball fan:

    20: Cindy, you said that you you mentioned twice that it was Nikki Taylor. Your messages didn't come up on time. I now realize that I have to hit the refresh button to get your latest comments. If we wait five minutes and comment, we miss whatever was posted until we refresh. So please don't get annoyed with us for not noticing your comment. We just didn't see it.

  28. Cindy Luis:

    can we quit complaining here about the audio/video ? sorry that you paid for it but if you want to complain, do so to WSU. please/

  29. LC:

    I bet everyone in the building is saying ..Really #7,This is the 7th best team ?

  30. manu:

    I guess WSU didn't get the Wahines current roster because Stauber in in the line up too.....

  31. Maverick:

    28. if it bothers you that much, please feel free to delete all the posts. Life is too short.

  32. Cindy Luis:

    tied at 20.
    sorry if i seem annoyed.

  33. manu:

    21 - 21. c'mon Wahines!

  34. manu:

    time out Dakota. Hawaii 23 - 21

  35. Maverick:

    32. No problem--we've all been there.

  36. Cindy Luis:

    31. sorry just asking to stop since the complaints should be directed to someone who can help.UH up 23-21. TO SD

  37. Beauston:

    29 yup, against a team clearly playing like me and my friends would intoxicated in the back yard.

  38. Cindy Luis:

    Taylor with the kill. 25-21

  39. manu:

    Whew...Right on. Wahines takes 2nd set. 25 - 21

  40. Beauston:

    They block better than me and my friends do, heck better than Wahine.

  41. LC:

    15 ties in that set.

  42. Maverick:

    36. No worries. BTW, I like the distribution of sets from Uiato. Hartong only getting 25%. She and Olevao have about the same workload so far. Good distributions to the middle and OPP.

  43. Beauston:

    41 embarassing

  44. Grace:

    Wow....put Ashley Kastl in...she might bring some energy and kills to the team.
    She is rotting on the bench! We don't look like a 7th ranked team anyway. Against South Dakota???

  45. Maverick:

    Another match in which UH is being outblocked.

  46. Volleyball fan:

    Beauston, I hope you can get a refund as you didn't get the service promised, although I don't trust Koch Arena and the Koch Brothers. They are notorious! I deliberately boycott them. Sorry you got shafted by them.

  47. LC:

    I guess we can blame jet lag,travel,etc.

  48. LC:

    I remember one time I flew non stop to Dallas and I was all out of wack the next day.

  49. Beauston:

    46 just realized they probably dont have the budget for the announcer to begin with hence there's no audio. I cant imagine how expensive it is but at this point, who knows anymore. Theres barely anyone in the gym.

  50. Maverick:

    47. I'd rather blame lack of focus. I don't like travel excuses. It has a way of diminshing UH victories at home.

  51. oldtimer808:

    quarterback coaches abound geez the Wahines are winning enjoy the team and let the coaches coach because I'm sure you wouldn't have a clue on how to coach at this level or any level.

  52. manu:

    3rd coming up

  53. oldtimer808:

    Mahalo Cindy for the updates....I was cracking up when I first checked the live stats and saw Hagins and Stauber playing.

  54. LC:

    Looks like the got the line up straighten out.

  55. Cindy Luis:

    54. I m sure Blane said something. you could hear his hesitation when he was reading the stats and read over Hagins name
    Manu-Olevao with the overpass. UH up 6-5

  56. manu:

    kastl is in.

  57. Beauston:

    Someone's reading a book in the gym. Hilarious

  58. Grace:

    Kastl wants to play....She bring more energy to team...sometimes Manu looks lazy

  59. Cindy Luis:

    sorry again for being so short .should take my own advise. taking my frustrations out against those who have no control over things.
    such as I was supposed to have another story in before the match started. so I did, getting up early to do so. now they are holding it for a week. been a long month.

  60. LC:

    They do not look sharp at all but like I said I fly a lot and I am always messed up when I go east.

  61. Cindy Luis:

    LC, agree. they flew over night. long travel day if they didn't get in until yesterday afternoon I always think it's tougher to fly East than West.

  62. manu:

    another close match....

  63. Grace:

    Even if Kastl got blocked please notice how the team moves around when kastl is in

  64. Cindy Luis:

    plus first road trip, new arena. UH up 16=13. TO SD

  65. Beauston:

    In fairness to them its been a long pre season I feel like.

  66. Maverick:

    I like Kastl's block.

  67. Cindy Luis:

    65. true

    SD has closed to 17-16. TO UH. Manu-Olevao with a kill. it's 18-16

  68. Cindy Luis:

    UH pulls away at 20-16. TO SD

  69. Maverick:

    Middles are hitting very well. Everyone else is down tonight.

  70. Beauston:

    South Dakota has only 5 kills in set 3.

  71. manu:

    If they can hang on that lead and not peter-out in the end. c'mon Wahines!

  72. Beauston:

    Really concern with Hartong's hitting % as of late

  73. Beauston:


  74. Grace:

    Is Emily injured? She looks a little weary than normal.
    I hope not!

  75. Maverick:

    Winning ugly.

  76. Cindy Luis:

    UH sweeps 25-21

  77. manu:

    Good Job Wahines! Now get some rest and do it again tomorrow night!

  78. manu:

    Thanks Cindy. sorry for annoying you earlier...didn't see the earlier posts.

  79. Cindy Luis:

    back in a bit. have to post some breaking stuff

  80. Beauston:

    When you look at numbers, it looks like Wahine demolished South Dakota. An ugly win indeed.
    Kudos to them for not giving a set away so they can rest up. Everyone looks beat up.

  81. mei mei:

    great job ladies 1st away game of the season, under the belt, agree with everyone jet-lagged i'm sure contributed to the ugly win, but a win is win!

  82. LC:

    Hartong with a double,double.

    Blocking close 7.5 - 6 in favor of SD

    UH 4 aces.

    25 Ties

  83. ruffles:

    you all do realize that Hawaii just beat a team that was 9-3 with a 7 game win streak on a neutral court after traveling from Hawaii. as good teams do they closed out the games when it counted, at the end.

  84. Grace:

    Gosh....This will be a tough weekend for the wahines. Our girls are human and will have many bad games and matches. Beating Texas and UCLA only makes them a target for other teams and distasteful comments by diehard fans or jealous opponents.The ride to postseason will not be a smooth one in this long season for them since they are recognized as a top 10 elite. Time to put thid match behind and get ready for Creighton and Wichita St. They want to dethrone us just like we did to Texas. Think about it!

  85. LC:

    Jet lag, medically referred to as desynchronosis, is a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body's circadian rhythms resulting from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east–west or west–east) travel on a (typically jet) aircraft. It was previously classified as one of the circadian rhythm sleep disorders.

    The condition of jet lag may last several days until one is fully adjusted to the new time zone, and a recovery rate of one day per time zone crossed is a suggested guideline.

  86. jmy:

    Cal having a tough time with UC Davis...

  87. Cindy Luis:

    sorry, Shoji called and needed to take that
    will be posting some comments on a new thread then have to write a story. Be back later

  88. Cindy Luis:

    84. Grace, no longer need to put the S at the end of Wahine. they haven't used it in years. '-)
    OMG as someone said. They won in 3, won on a neutral site in 83 minutes. played well when they had to. used all 13 players they brought (not 14 as we thought they might have) first road trip of the year, after a very long travel day going east. against a pretty decent team that should win its conferrence with an unorthodox style of play (left handed middle, left handed oppostie, setter who is offensive minded and we know how UH does against those).
    UH's physicalness was key at the end of each set
    Point, as someone mentioned. is they won in 3. no one is giving style points in the W-L column.
    comment: looks like they dominated in the stats. Hard to argue they didn't. It didn't look pretty if someone watched the match.

  89. jmy:

    Davis up 2-1 against Cal...

  90. RedZone:

    All in all a good job by the Wahine.

  91. Ashley:

    74. I didn't view the match, in fact i actually over slept, so I missed the entire game. Thank you to everyone for the updates. But anyways, I know earlier in the week Emily had apparently fell down some stairs according to one of her teammates. she has a ugly bruise on her right thigh. it looks sore, so maybe that is why.

  92. Cindy Luis:

    Will be a very good win for the Aggies if they can hold on.

  93. jmy:

    Davis was down in the 4th...now tied up at 13...

  94. Cindy Luis:

    box is up if you want to look
    BTW, it was a career-high for Manu-Olevao
    Hartong's sixth double-double double, fourth for Uiato.

  95. K-Bay:

    FIRST Is Winning
    Especially Ability to Win "Ugly" when Not Everything going smooth or ʻYour Wayʻ
    Then Winning Against Winning Teams, Consistently
    Then Winning On the Road, Especially Travelling Eastward
    Winning on the Other Teamʻs Home Court (To Follow, Similar to USD Versus UH)
    Then Winning Without Dropping Games (More Consistently)
    Then Winning in Playoffs
    Then (Ideally) Winning All the Way Through Playoffs

    Na Wahine Are On their Way...

    [As Cindy might have been Politely Pointing Out,
    There is NO "S" in the Hawaiʻian Language --
    "Na Wahine" IS The Plural Form of Wahine ]

  96. jmy:

    Davis won it in four...

  97. Msrpantoja1@Huh.'A'loha:

    was in mom's neck of the woods today. went into the Black Bear Diner. drove by the 7 Cedars Casino..I didn't go in there. thought about SD/Hi./Wa. ohana.

    & no *in moderation* gambling is not a sin.
    tho He is so good; He comforts and keeps us all.

  98. LanaiBoy:

    Watched the Cal-Davis match on video. UC Davis looked impressive. Very energetic, nice blocking, and great floor defense throughout the match. Great win for the Big West. If only Long Beach State had come through against UCLA. Big West teams have to win against their non-conference opponents to boost its reputation and RPI.

  99. jmy:

    After the first set, Davis hit very well...

  100. Purple&Green:

    Poignant- being to the point; cutting; piercing.

    "There are two POIGNANT AVCA ranked teams playing in this weekend's Shockers VB Classic."
    ..soon to be three in WSU.

  101. Cindy Luis:

    like the 7 Cedars Casino very much. they have some really good seafood there.
    It will be a good test for the Wahine, first against Creighton Friday and against a anticipated large home crowd Saturday

  102. Grammy:

    Just enough at the end to win is more than enough for me. No games went into deuce/ot. No sets dropped. If they can't be satisfied with their game this evening, they will never be able to be satisfied with any sort of victory short of straight set national championship. Which isn't about to be this team's path to end of the season. They will have to find challenge, look defeat in eye, stand up to every blow opponent can bring and remain standing and win. Don't see any other way for this team, but can see it happening for sure it's possible. Go Wahine!
