A new job for Ah Mow-Santos?

January 24th, 2011

Have been told that Robyn Ah Mow-Santos, currently the student coach for Hawaii men, has been contacted about the assistant women’s job at U. Colorado. Apparently she is looking into it. UH staff would like to find a way to have her stay with them.

Stanford at Hawaii Night 2 live updates

January 23rd, 2011

Same starting lineups as Friday.
I’m guessing Hawaii will try to establish the outside early. maybe got to Walker more. I know Stanford needs to adjust and move Shoji to cover line, like Ball STate did against Hawaii last week.
Stanford has jumped out to a 6-3 lead. TO UH. one early difference is the touches they’re getting on Umlauft and Evan Barry serving tougher.

A net violation give Stanford at 15-14 lead at the TTO. Hawaii hasn’t backed down. Stanford’s passing better and McLachlin definitely having a better night than he did Friday when he was pulled toward the end. Umlauft 3-2-9, Walker 5-0-8, Dyer 2-0-3. Lot more diverse offense for UH tonight.

Ace by Kneller puts Stanford up 20-18. TO UH.

Stanford still with the two-point advantage 22-20 after inafuku called for a lift. not sure if the ref would have called it but the crowd was calling for it. TO Cardinal.

McLachlin with 2 kills and in on a block. Stanford scores last 3 points wins Set 1 25-21.
McLachlin already with more kills (6) than Friday (4). he was 4-5-16 Friday, 6-1-11 tonight.
