Hawaii-NMSU rewind

October 31st, 2010
By



Hawaii took care of business pretty well. Mafua said she was happy that with all the distractions of homecoming weekend that they stayed focused.
Not sure how much spark will be left for Louisiana Tech tomorrow but don’t think they’ll need much. Could be the shortest match of the year.
UH finished hitting .384 to NMSU’s .140. They did a nice job on the Aggies, who threw out a lineup they’d never used, going with a 6-2, and Tonga on the right.
Giddens hit .194 with 12 kills. Woods 3-3-14.
Agree that Satele is becoming a solid blocker, helped by being next to Hewitt, but teams underestimate how well Satele jumps.
And Brennan certainly underestimated Danielson’s jump. Although Kanani only got credit for one solo, it should have been two.
Waber did play a nice match but NMSU kind of left her alone. she was 7-1-12. Hartong 7-1-15. UH with 6 aces, 8 SEs. NMSU 2 aces, 9 SEs.
Quick turnaround for the team and me. Heading over the Pali. Good night for now. Happy Halloween.

Ryan won’t be doing the match tonight. LIsa Ma’a is back from states. Tsuji did say that he’ll be doing the UH men next season. No more musical mics.
Also, former Wahine All-American Lily Kahumoku Olteanu is expecting twin boys. Living in Tours, France, where husband is playing pro.
