Hawaii 3, UC Riverside 0

September 29th, 2013

Can see why UCR is 1-11, very small team, couple of players listed at 6-1. That may be generous. this is their 13th and last road match before finally playing at home next week. Only win was 3-1 over Winthrop at the UOP Classic, ending an 8-match skid this year, and 0-10 losing streak dating back to last season. Biggest crowd they've played in front of was 1,236 at New Mexico.

  26. Ki:

    Hope Nikkie's numbers are enough for Big West honors

  27. Kazu:

    #17, agree with you about the aunties. They are special.

  28. Cindy Luis:

    26. we'll see. she was 6-0-7 tonight

  29. LanaiBoy:

    5'6" and 5'7" outsides and 6' middles (generous, looks more like 5'10"), UC Riverside was really overmatched. Taylor just overpowered everyone she faced when she was in (not much). Thought Ginger Long would play more but Kaela Goodman looked good. Much improvement this year, when she is able to play this season.

  30. Grammy:

    This hard to take UCR kept shooting themselves in the foot, score tan give back point on service or hitting errors. Wahine won, but I'd hope UCR gets things together for Hawai'i visit later on. It was like set 2 last night, just over 3 set. Go Wahine!
