Happy it didn’t go five. might have missed our first deadline.A good match for Hewitt. Her 10 kills were pretty quiet but she came up big on 11 blocks. Cubi-Otineru had a double double 13 kills and 14 digs, and a really smart shot to the empty corner that put UH ahead 28-27 in Set 3.Their second set letdown has been a trend over past years. They seemed really out of sync tonight in Set 2Kaufman apparently said something about wanting the ball more. She was 8-0-10 in Sets 3 and 4.Hawaii outblocked SCU 14-9, 8-4 in the final two sets. The Broncos had only 4 kills in Set 4.Ferrell was a little off in her hitting but made some great defensive plays. hawaii hit .373 for the night, opened with a strong .556 and closed with a strong .522.Be interesting how they do against UCLA. The Bruins are tall but not as quick as Hawaii’s outsides. it will come down to serve and pass again.

Met Kalei Adolpho tonight. She orally committed to UH. She’s a 6-1 middle from Molokai High. A junior. Said this was her first match tonight in the arena and thought it was so cool.

Timeout Broncos.Hawaii win 25-19, UH hitting .556.Set 2 Wahine looked very flat, trailed most of the way and held off three set points before a rare overpass by Danielson results in Krista Kelley pounding it back, Broncos wins 27-25Hawaii holds off two set points before pulling out a 30-28 win. Danielson with 16 kills so far. Hawaii’s block much better, 11-6 edge.Santa Clara had nothing let and Hawaii found its rhythm. UH wins 25-13.

Smallish crowd, maybe a couple hundred. WMU led early (9-7). Great rally, I’d say at least 10 plays on either side, UCLA finally wins it to go ahead 14-13. Gil serves an ace, then 2 WMU hitting errors … and now it’s 118-13UCLA wins Set 1 25-17 and Set 2 25-14.Bruins went up 20-9, ended up winning 25-15 with UCLA’s second team finishing the match
