  1. Cindy Luis:

    UH down early 7-2. Very sloppy play by the Warriors. 4 of UCLA's points coming via UH mistakes, SE, NV and 2 hits into the net.

  2. Cindy Luis:

    Hawaii has closed to 13-12. TO UH. Warriors finally out of negative, .111. Bruins down from 800 to 500.

  3. Cindy Luis:

    Quiroga with the kill, puts UCLA up 15-14 at the TTO.

  4. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins' Rowe should have been called for a net, he ended up under the net and on the floor, may be his right ankle.

  5. Cindy Luis:

    They ended up carrying Rowe into the locker room. UCLA up 19-17 on a UH SE

  6. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA with a block of Zarkovic, now 21-17. TO UH.

  7. Cindy Luis:

    UH holds off 2 set points, closes to 24-21. TO UCLA

  8. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA wins 25-22.

    Once again the video feed is not working.....So frustrating! Thanks Oceanic.

  10. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors hit 160 11-7-25, West 1-2-3, Sedore 3-1-6, Averill 1-1-3, Zarkovic 4-2-6, Olsen 2-1-6. 1 aces, 4 S#, 6 digs, 3 blocks.

  11. Cindy Luis:

    9. Video didn't work for me on one browser. I switched to Google Chrome from Safari and it now works. Try a new browser?

  12. Cindy Luis:

    Oddly now the streaming is working on Safari.

  13. Cindy Luis:

    Do like UH has spread the offense around, Averill has had some monitor swings. UH leading 11-9

  14. Cindy Luis:

    Great rally on both sides, UH did well in transition, went with the 3-meter to Zarovic to find it. UH leads 13-10. TO UCLA

  15. Cindy Luis:

    Was looking back at the box from the Outrigger match between the two. UCLA's lineup is quite different. New setter with O'Dell hurt. Hagen Smith the son of Singin Smith. They switched liberos. and changed a middle.
    Hawaii up 15-10 at the TTO. Sedore is serving well.

  16. Eugene Savio:

    Cindy...looks like you almost got a lap dance from Sedore. Slow Start tonight but UH is playing much better now.

  17. Cindy Luis:

    Not really. He landed more on the table and my laptop. did hit my shoulder tho'. not as bad as when BYU's Baptiste landed on my thigh. still have a deep tissue bruise from that one.

  18. Cindy Luis:

    UH was up 17-11. TO UCLA. Warriors now lead 19-13 after an obvious net not called on UCLA. Burt Fuller the up ref again.

  19. Cindy Luis:

    Great pancake by Averill, Olsen converts UH up 24-17

  20. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA with the SE. 25-18. bruins definitely missing Rowe who started all 16 matches he had played in. He's back on the bench, used a crutch to get back out to the court.

  21. Cindy Luis:

    Set 2. UH hit 452. 4 blocks, 9 digs. Ramos 2-0-2, West 1-0-1, Sedore 4-1-11, Averill 4-0-4, Zarkovic 2-1-7. 1 ace 6 SEs. and they still win by 7.
    UCLA hit 192. 0 aces, 3 SEs. 1 block. Fisher 3-0-4, Page 3-4-10. Quiroga 2-1-6. Paulin who replaced Rowe 0-0-3.

  22. Eugene Savio:

    Nice to see so many people showed up they had to open some upper level seats at the arena tonight. Best crowd so far this year.

  23. Cindy Luis:

    One of the better crowds. They did open the upper section and I think there's a number of people who were sitting elsewhere who also moved up there. Better seats than some of the angles in the lower bowl.

  24. Cindy Luis:

    That ball was so down. Can't believe they missed that call. it bounced off the court.

  25. Don:

    Dickson did see it and called it. Burt ignored him...

  26. Cindy Luis:

    25. thanks Don. Burt is calling his own game, like last night.

  27. Cindy Luis:

    Page very close to a foot fault. think he realized it. adjusted next serve and it was short.

  28. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA takes a 15-12 at the TTO.

  29. islandman:

    Do you know what the attendance is ?

  30. Cindy Luis:

    nope, we don't get tickets issued until after Set 3 if then. guessing 3200 maybe more. I'm not good at it.

  31. Cindy Luis:

    Sedore hits the antenna. UCLA up 20-17. TO UH

  32. Cindy Luis:

    Fisher is blocked, then hits into the net. UCLA up 21-20. TO Bruins.

  33. Cindy Luis:

    Quiroga blocked to tie it at 21 but then Olsen with an SE. Sedore ties it at 22. Fey to serve

  34. Cindy Luis:

    Zarkovic with the kill, puts UH up 24-23. TO Bruins

  35. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins now serving for the set 25-24 after a kill by Fisher and a stuff of sedore. TO UH

  36. Cindy Luis:

    AVerill hits just wide. Bruins win 26-24

  37. Cindy Luis:

    IN Set 3, UH hit 304, 4 blocks, 1 aces, 7 SEs. 5 digs.
    West 1-0-4, Sedore 6-3-11, Averill 6-1-2, Zarkovic 2-0-3, Olsen 1-0-3.
    UCLA hit 250, 2 aces, 6 SEs. 2 blocks, 7 digs.
    Page 3-0-5, Quiroga 5-2-8. Fisher 2-4-6

  38. Cindy Luis:

    And for those who might be wondering, UH has not swept the MPSF series from UCLA since 2006.

  39. Cindy Luis:

    Warriors have pulled away 9-3, the last on an ace by Sedore, my new buddy. TO UCLA

  40. Cindy Luis:

    Interesting they have let tKomisarek in at libero, not on serve receive.

  41. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins have swapped liberos too. Kanetake back in for UH.

  42. Cindy Luis:

    Ace by Zarkovic gives UH the 15-8 lead at the TTO

  43. Cindy Luis:

    Bruins can't return Sedore's serve. it's 19-11. TO Bruins.

  44. Cindy Luis:

    Clearly dug by Siki. Burt not having a good game. UH up 21-13

  45. jmy:

    Interesting how the two sets won by UCLA were tight & the two won by UH were blowouts...

  46. Cindy Luis:

    Zarkovic ends it at 25-16. It was the few points scored by UCLA since 16 in the loss to Long Beach. Fewest points (14) came against UH in the outrigger and against Pepperdine

  47. Warriorfan:

    Keep it up warriors , no more miss sets in the fifth please Ramos, cant give away freebies!

  48. Cindy Luis:

    UH is 2-1 in Set 5s, UCLA is 3-0

  49. Cindy Luis:

    UH going with Timmer to serve first. likely to give him 2 chances in Set 5.

  50. Cindy Luis:

    Impressed the down 3-0 with 2 questionable calls against them, UH has come back to 3-2

  51. Cindy Luis:

    Yellow on UH, UCLA clearly should have been called for a bad set.

  52. Don:

    Burt seems to have a problem with Hawaii. After every point, he stares down the UH players...not very balanced for an NCAA official...

  53. Cindy Luis:

    UH has come back to tie at 6. TO Bruins

  54. Cindy Luis:

    UCLA leads 8-7 at the changeover. Bruins must have taken side. They are on the side that they won on Sets 1 and 3. Smith with an SE ties it at 8

  55. Cindy Luis:

    West and Ramos with the block of Quiroga. UH up 10=9

  56. Cindy Luis:

    Page hits into the net. UH up 13-11. TO UCLA

  57. Cindy Luis:

    gutsy serve by Zarkovic. Ace. 14-11

  58. Cindy Luis:

    Warrios win 25-11 kill by Sedore

  59. volleyball fan:

    Warriorfan, you got your wish and UH won a second night. So Wade is in and unless the team blows it big time at the end of season, Wade is pretty much assured a continuance of his contract.

  60. volleyball fan:

    Now I recommend Brook Sedore as both MPSF player of the week and also national player of the week. He had 20+ kill performances both nights even though Taylor Sander had two stellar matches this weekend, Sedore was instrumental in upsetting UCLA both nights.

  61. Warriorfan:

    Im happy with this win, hope they do the same to uci and byu.

    When jace plays well this team does not lose, hope he can get some consistency and play this way the rest of the season.

  62. Andrew:

    That was a crazy serve by Zarkovic. Impressed by the confidence to rip it like that after a timeout.

  63. FeedTheMiddles:

    Wow...what a great set of wins! Total team effort. What a boost to their standings. Averill and West are best set of middles in nation. Sedore is truly on fire.

  64. Cindy Luis:

    59. I don't know that it's a done deal with Wade but they've now matched their win total from last year and are 7-1 at home in MPSF play, 9-2 overall.

  65. hossana:

    Let's not talk about Wade being in a precarious position as coach of the men's volleyball team. For goodness sake, it takes patience to build a program but it seems that people want "instant success" esp. against all odds when you're competing against top programs in the nation whether its fb, bb, baseball, and with the men's volleyball program, its even more difficult..well, I shouldn't say more difficult than football, basketball, and baseball but it takes time and patience esp. with the limited resources we have here against the top programs in the nation so let's enjoy this win, season, and the coaching staff and give them the kudos, love, and praise they so deserve for the work they have put in this season and stop, once and for all, talking about Wade as coach but let's just talk about the success of the team against all odds. Nothing more and nothing less.

  66. hossana:

    P.S. and yes, thanks Cindy for keeping things in perspective esp. with some of the negative comments that come in concerning the program and play of the team.

  67. greenwarrior:

    wonderful fan atmosphere last night! totally agree with hossana. patience, support, and perspective needed with UH sports.

  68. karmady:

    Still not a Wade fan- I suspect this year's success has to do with the new assistant coach brought in, but hey, at this point, who cares? GO WARRIORS...all the way to Chicago.

  69. Tiki808:

    Still a funny match to some. You do know that the first one to go is the coach, if they are going for the national title? Charlie Wade. Why coach? If Wade was let go, the players would involved in the decision, and the others won't have a chance. Just policy that they keep Wade in the game. It's for the team in Hawai'i. Otherwise it would've have been a team in South America going for the title and MPSF.

  70. Tiki808:

    Don't they take up some classes in exercise to make them a better volleyball player? That's the whole idea of Wade's coaching, to see to it the team gets exposed to higher caliber player than Hawai'i. If so, Olympics, then to professional. Many players would rather go professional and just play. Like Jace Olsen, to start getting paid and eating up the tour where ever. Sound right?
