Hawaii drops to No. 14

January 30th, 2012

Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things of 16 coaches voting. 6 points separate UH with Loyola.

don’t remember UH being this low ever.

BYU stays at No. 1, followed by UCI and UCLA

SC up a spot to 4, Penn State jumps three to No. 8, Lewis up to no. 7 and Stanford falls three spots to 7.

UH-GCU rewind Night 2

January 28th, 2012

A good win for a young team.

Hunt 21-5-44, West 13-3-20, Aerill 12-7-25, Marks 10-6-25. UH with 3 aces, 12 SEs, 15.5 blocks, Lofy in on 8, Averill 7. Castello with 15 digs, Biscaro 11, Averill 10.

Ponnet 21 kills for GCU, 1 aces, 10 SE. 9 blocks.

Thought the Warriors played really good defense, kept a lot of rallies alive, Castello was amazing for another night.

They’re going to get better. still a young team. West has been connecting better and Lofy’s footwork has greatly improved.

Hawaii hits the road, heads up to UOP Friday and Saturday. UCI in town Feb. 10 and 12. that’s Fri/Sun.

heading over the Pali. have a good night.

UH-GCU rewind

January 27th, 2012

Wasn’t that fun   … NOT.

so glad i’m not having to write on deadline, did chase down a few quotes for Tsai from Wade. Charlie said they needed to steady out. played a lot of people (14) sometimes out of necessity. Said he was happy that the players kept fighting. Said to give GCU credit.

Asked him about not closing out sets again. he said it’s been a pattern, that they need to learn how to close it out.

anyway, Hunt with a season-high 23 kills, West 13-1-20, Sedore and Averill with 11 kills. Castello career-high 22 digs. UH with 8 blocks, Hunt in on 4, West 5.

Match lasted 249. UH with 3 aces, 16 SEs. GCU 22 SEs, no aces

getting kicked out so i’ll say good night.

we’ll see how they come back tomorrow. think the lineup I’d go with is Averill at Opp, Sedore at L2 and just go with that.

Good news is West was 13-1-20. bad is Lofy 0-1-6. think they’ll need both middles if they’re going to do anything this season.
