Hawaii 3, Cal Poly 0

November 3rd, 2012
By

Had answered this elsewhere but … Olevao is in warmups, Her left leg heavy with the KT tape that mimics tendons and adds support.

A number of those upsets last night tonight should help UH, especially Cal beating Oregon, Miami and Florida State losing. UCLA losing twice to the Arizona teams might a wash of things.

All Hawaii can do is to keep winning  and hope for the best when the seedings come out.

As for tonight, UH starting Adolpho, Hartong, Uiato, Maeda, Croson, Vorster, Long … not sure who the other OH will be.

    As long as the Wahine, and Stanford, keep winning it will bold well for the Wahine.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:14 pm

        Great dig by Maeda leads to a Croson kill. UH up 8-7.

    Wahine playing well on transition, Great defense and Maeda’s serves giving Cal Poly trouble. UH up 19-14.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:29 pm

      Stauber in. Hartong moves to the right with Kastl in on the left.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:33 pm

        UH needed three swings at it but wins Set 1 25-19 on a kill by Adolpho.

            Olevao in to start Set 2. with Croson and Hartong.

  • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Kawamura in to serve at 5-5.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:46 pm

      A couple of heaters by both Hartong and Croson mkes it 12-9. TO CP.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:48 pm

        Hartong hitting 692 (9-0-13). Croson is 8-3-17.

        • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:53 pm

          Olevao stuffed on the right. CP ties it at 16-16. TO UH.

          • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 7:56 pm

            Maeda’s serving still giving the Mustangs problems. UH on a 4-0 run. 20-16. TO CP

  • beauston November 3, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Olevao not having a good night. Time to open that revolving door again. Goodman and KASTL are waiting

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:04 pm

      I would give Oleavo a break. not like she got a lot of chances 1-1-3 in one set. but her ankle not 100 percent. And 2 of those sets were very tight with her hitting on the right side.
      Besides Beau, Goodman started Thursday and tonight.

      • beauston November 3, 2012 at 8:22 pm

        not so much a dig on Olevao, i didnt say anything different from what you said. I knew Shoji was going to use this game for the revolving door regardless. It drives me crazy being just weeks away from the tourney but oh well.

  • beauston November 3, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Maeda is showing that she’s the senior on the floor with UH’s 4-0 run

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      UH finishes Set 2 on a 9-1 run. 25-17. Stats in a bit

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      Maeda is playing well.

  • volleyball fan November 3, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Do Monica Stauber from Hawaii and Megan McConnell from Cal Poly look similar? What do you think?

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:05 pm

      Hadn’t noticed the similarity.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:07 pm

        In set 3 UH hit 448. 17-4-29. CP 182.
        Vorster 4-2-8, Croson 9-3-20, Uiato 2-0-2, Hartong 11-1-16, Adolpho 4-1-8, Goodman 1-1-4, Olevao 1-1-3. 1 aces (Maeda), 5 SE, 19 digs, 4 blocks.

  • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Set 3 Tuaniga starting and Haggins. Hartong, Croson, Maeda, Long. not sure yet about the other OH. Probably Goodman.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:13 pm

      Stauber in. UH down 1-3. Turnstile 5652, tickets 7177.

  • domm November 3, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    omg the subs.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:14 pm

      Stauber a good choice since she works more with the second team middles.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:16 pm

        Wrong guess … Kastl in. Hartong goes right.

        • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:18 pm

          Ace by Lslepali makes it 9-6.

      • domm November 3, 2012 at 8:17 pm

        im glad they’re doing something!
        blocks and aces for days.

        • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

          UH on a 5-1 run. Up 11-6. TO CP.

          • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:23 pm

            Great save by Hartong. set went wide to Hagins who missed it Hartong covered, dig went over. UH won the point. Hartong from 3 meters makes it’ 16-7

  • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Kam into serve for Hartong at 17-7.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:27 pm

      UH up 19-8. Hagins getting a lot of touches on CP attempts. TO CP.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:28 pm

        on the court at the moment. Kam, Kastl, Long, Stauber, Croson and Hagins. interesting group.

  • beauston November 3, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    I’ve got to say, Stauber setting in set 3 is impressive, she’s holding her own amidst some miscues. She runs a much faster tempo.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:29 pm

      Stauber doing OK IMHO. but a nice dump set by her makes it 20-11. Tuangia back in.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:31 pm

        couple of out balls by Croson makes it 21-15. Solo stuff by Tuaniga makes it 22-15. Long in for Croson to serve.

        • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:33 pm

          A little ragged out there. was 17-7 Now 22-18. TO UH.

          • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:36 pm

            Kastl ends it 25-19

    • beauston November 3, 2012 at 8:41 pm

      yup set 3 ragged, but Calpoly did not score any more than they did in set 1 where Wahine’s starting line up played and Uiato setting so I’ll take it.

  • dedicatedfan November 3, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Ended the match with their 2nd unit. Easy night for Hartong, did not play much of the 3rd set.

  • rainbowfan November 3, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Does UH get an automatic entry into NCAA tournament now ?
    I heard something like that from Scott and Tiff on the radio.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Yes, UH clinches conference title and auto berth.

    • rainbowfan November 3, 2012 at 9:01 pm

      So they don’t have a Big West season ending tournament like in the WAC.

      • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 9:13 pm

        No the Big West does not have a tournament.

  • volleyball fan November 3, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Now that Monica Stauber is being interviewed in the post-game show, I can now notice a difference between her and Megan McConnell. So I was wrong.

  • beauston November 3, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    good to see staubs at the post interview.

  • beauston November 3, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    good grief, where did the season went, 5 more games and onto the tourney?
    I was one of the many who was dying for the season to start and now I feel like it’s going to fast. arrrg

  • dedicatedfan November 3, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    What I like about Shoji moving Hartong around, either the LS or RS, they will be hard to prepare for. I do not think, no other team moves their Star player around like this, or having her be effective from either position.

    • Cindy Luis November 3, 2012 at 9:14 pm

      Hartong is amazingly versatile and has a great competitive attitude. She has always said she’ll play wherever as long as she gets to play.

  • Black Bean Chow Fun November 3, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you Dave Shoji and the Wahine for keeping excellence in UH Athletics for decades. As the football program goes through another deep valley, the Wahine are always on the top of heap and are relevant in the national title picture year after year.
    I think Shoji and the Wahine should be the showcase of UH athletics. UH should downgrade football and upgrade the wahine volleyball. Let’s reward Shoji with a lucrative contract and divert funds from football to help Shoji take the Wahine from top ten to a national title dynasty.
    I am a huge fan of UH football but I am also a realist. Unless we can get a football coach that can do what Dave Shoji does by winning with whatever talent he has on hand, football will continue to languish.
    Let’s end the agony. Drop the football program and let’s put all our eggs in the Wahine Volleyball basket. Imua!!

    • volleyball fan November 4, 2012 at 1:02 pm

      I totally agree with you Black Bean. Football should go and volleyball can use far more support.
