Shoji actually called this one. He thought going to USC was a real possibility.I suggested San Diego but he thought USD would be seeded too to end up in his bracket.instead … Hawaii (28-3) will be heading to the sub-regional hosted by USC this week as the seventh overall seed in the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament.The Rainbow Wahine put their 15-match winning streak on the line against Belmont (25-7), the champion of the Atlantic Sun Conference, in a first-round match Friday.In the other match, host USC (16-11) faces San Diego (23-4), the West Coast Conference champion.The winner of the sub-regional at USC advances to the regional at Colorado State. Also seeded in that regional is No. 2 Stanford.The overall No. 1 seed is defending champion Penn State (32-0) with Texas No. 3. 

Any guesses as where Hawaii will end up?

If there is one coach Greg McMackin is linked with more than June Jones, it’s Dennis Erickson.  And if Arizona State beats Arizona in their regular-season finale, it will probably be Erickson’s Sun Devils (or Arizona) in the Hawaii Bowl against UH. McMackin was Erickson’s defensive coordinator with the Miami Hurricanes, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. They also coached together at Idaho and San Jose State, and matched wits in the 1999 Hawaii Bowl, when McMackin was UH defensive coordinator and Erickson was the head coach for Oregon State.

 Greg to Greg … Alexander to Salas for 19 yards, and Hawaii leads Washington State 7-0. The Cougars punted to the Warriors’ 3, and UH went 97 yards on 10 plays, including three passes to Aaron Bain for 36 yards and two Alexander scrambles for 33. … UH makes it 14-0 with 3:18 left in the first on Daniel Libre’s 2-yard TD run. … WSU gets on the board at 5:23 of the second quarter with a 26-yard field goal by Nico Grasu. … The Warriors come back with a 22-yarder by Dan Kelly, set up by Josh Leonard’s fumble recovery at the Cougars’ 4.  … Grasu’s try from 37 yards with 5 seconds before the break was no good. … Washington State takes advantage of a short field after pinning UH deep on the second half kickoff by going 53 yards on 8 plays, including Dwight Tardy for a 1-yard TD, making it 17-10 UH. … Next series, Alexander to Mike Washington for a 44-yard touchdown, and it’s back to a two-touchdown lead.
