We have it from a good source that the Washington football contingent is still on the ground in Seattle, waiting out a flight delay.

That’s the problem with commando raids … if something goes wrong, you can end up cutting things really close.

It’s 27 hours ’til kickoff and the Huskies are still half an ocean away from Aloha Stadium.

Middle Tennessee State holds off Louisville in Game 1 to win 30-28. Both teams hitting well, UL .364, MTS .349. The Cards have four blocks. Oddest statistic: it was a 2-point game but MTSU had 23 kills to UL’s 14.

Hawaii wins 30-26, 30-14, 30-17. Houston has 18 kills, Sanders 11 (11-1-14). took 79 minutes, about how many people were here before Louisville fans started to show up. No blocks for either team in Game 3, something I question, but that’s what the official box has. Lowe had nine kills for TSU. UH 40 digs, TSU 20. Will post result of the second match later. It should be a better one than this one was. 13 of the Wahine played with Simmons putting down the final kill. Hawaii had a season-high 10 aces.

And it wasn’t that close. Think the Tigers shot the wad in Game 1. Hawaii’s block is just too big. Wahine had five in Game 2, none for the Tigers. Shoji’s been able to get in Keefe and Gregory.Houston 14-5-21, Sanders only had one swing in Game 2, no kill. Gregory 2-0-3. Christian Lowe (7-10-27) and Kelly Davis (5-2-14) have taken 41 of the team’s 74 swings. Collese Dornan (opp) has had some success 4-1-10. She actually took over as setter for a couple of plays with Saleaumua trying to stablize the passing. It didn’t work.
