This completes UH’s recruiting class to 2010. Was trying to get a comment from her coach before I posted it. This is all I have at the moment.Apparently she made one last trip to Oregon State over the weekend. Beavers were swept by Washington Sunday 25-21, 25-15, 25-21 as 1100 watched for 80 minutes.Her visit to Hawaii was during the Stanford sweep with over 6,000. wonder if it had any influence on her decision?

Top 5 stays the same. Nebraska drops from 6 to 10. It’s been a while they’ve been that low.

Hawaii’s next two oppponents met today with NMSU pulling out a 19-25, 25-22, 25-14, 25-21.Too bad LaTech had to play back to back, winning in 5 Saturday night then coming back for an afternoon match with the Aggies. Fresher legs might have made a difference. Obviously the Lady Techsters are much improved.   They have a number of transfers who are making an impact.

A very efficient night for Hawaii. They looked as good as they have all season in Sets 1 and 2. Thought Mafua kept Idaho off balance with the up-tempo offense.At one point in Set 2, UH hitting .765: 13-0-17 when leading 19-5. When Ferrell was blocked (21-9) UH was 15-1-22. They ended up hitting .640 (17-1-25).Cubi-Otineru didn’t have a hitting error until the middle of Set e (10-1-20) when she was blocked on a pipe set.Forsythe continues to play well when coming in Set 3. She’s 5-0-6 in each of the last 2 matches. She’s 31-3-51 on the season, her only hitting errors came against Cal when she was 4-3-8.We’ll see what happens at LaTech. A bit of a surprise they could knock off Utah State (in 5) tonight. Their first win since Sept. 29, 2007, a stretch of 27 WAC matches. But Hawaii is a pretty mature team and should handle the road OK.
