Shoji was talking to Scott this morning.
Said Saturday was still stinging. That he had spoken to Hartong yesterday and she wasn't over it.
Said BYU played pretty error free Saturday and that Hartong didn't get much help offensively. said he didn't know how well BYU would do against USC.
2014 schedule: still working on it. ASU is coming out. said that teams are concerned about the RPI, wanting to know who else would be in the tournament, not wanting it to be too easy. And that travel cost is a concern. Said he'd know more by January.
All-Region: disappointed that Uiato didn't get recognized. said he didn't know until a few months ago that they had been put in the north region with the split of the Pac-12 and Big West. said he was surprised that CSU got three players but, as mentioned here yesterday, that coaches in that region more familiar with CSU than Hawaii. And that Stanford and UW had great players.
Coming back in 2014? said he wasn't ready to make the official statement. That will be coming with the next few weeks. said he's meeting with his players tomorrow, the usual season-ending exit stuff. Said the recruits coming in were good but raw, that they still have very good players returning, including 2 starting middles. said he look at Taylor moving to the left but that might be determined in spring ball. He did mention Passi on the right. Biggest loss will be Hartong, they will also need to replace her in the passing rotation.
think the most telling comment was his saying that he felt this year's team was a potential final four team. He was disappointed and that there was some unfinished business.
