listening to the pregame on radio and Hawaii will be short in the middle again. Shane Welch didn’t make the trip so they’re going with Lofy. Warriors should be able to get away with that tonight. Lofy is big but doesn’t give you much offense.

    why did Welch not make the trip?

  • Cindy Luis

    don’t know why he didn’t make the trip. Wade alluded to the flu that Umlauft had last week. Since they’re not supposed to divulge illnesses, we can only assume. I’ll ask when I chat with him after the match.

    UH up 15-12 in Set 2 at the TTO.

  • Cindy Luis

    Kill by Umlauft makes it 16-12. TO UCSD.

  • Cindy Luis

    Another kill by Umlauft (12 out of UH’s 24) has Hawaii up 22-14. TO UCSD
    Umlauft puts down game ball, UH ties it at 25-16.

  • Jogga

    You say Lofy doesn’t provide much offense. I don’t think Welch does either. At least he hasn’t so far.

    What is wrong with Pepperdine this year? They just lost in the second set 25-13. Kind of shocking.

  • Cindy Luis

    UH up 15-14 at the TTO. There’s also a live video feed through UCSDTritons.com if you care to watch.

    Dyer with an ace makes it 21-18. TO UCSD.

    A little sloppy on UH’s side. UCSD has closed to 22-20. TO UH.

    Didn’t see the antenna violation but that’s what they called. UH serving for the set at 24-20. TO Tritons.

    Hitting error gives UH the set. 25-20. on to Set 4.

  • Cindy Luis

    have no idea about Pepperdine. It is very shocking. they could be 0-5 after tonight.
    As for Lofy, true Welch hasn’t had time to show much either. they really don’t have many options at MB.

  • Cindy Luis

    UH trails in Set 4, 8-6. TO Warriors.
    But an ace by Hunt makes it 14-13 UH. TO UCSD. UH outserving UCSD, which led the league in aces.

  • Cindy Luis

    Hmmm, could Set 5 be in our future? UCSD up 20-19. UH TImeout. Umlauft kill makes it 20-20.
    Biscaro in for blocking purposes and Lofy team on a block. 21-20 UH. Timeout UCSD
    Tritons close it out 25-23, scoring the final three points. On to Set 5.

    • Jogga

      Boy, UH needs to start winning games in 3 or 4 sets because they are very unsuccessful in 5 sets. So far, they are 0-3 in five sets. Kind of a surprising loss.

  • Cindy Luis

    SD serves an ace, helping the tritons out to a 5-2 lead. TO UH.

  • warriorfan

    meltdown in the 5th, this should have been a sweep.

    • Cindy Luis

      at least they should have won in 4.
      it’s 7-5 with UCSD calling a timeout
      Hawaii closes to 7-6
      It’s 8-6 at the changeover.
      well, just think that Hawaii was up 8-5 when losing in 5 to Stanford last week at the changeover.

      UH down 10-6. TO.

  • warriorfan

    Hunt really hurts UH late in sets, too many mistakes.

  • jmy

    Awful performance…I’m surprised that this team has been so inconsistent…I thought that they were supposed to be better this year.

  • Cindy Luis

    WF, all you have to do is look at the standings. everyone beating up on everyone. this hardly determines a host spot.
    they are 1-2 in MPSF. UCSD is a good team, beat UCI earlier. it’s a long season.

  • Jogga

    The other 2 five set losses were pretty close. However, UH should have won tonight in 4. I was hoping they wouldn’t go to 5 since they have been unsuccessful this year. Unfortunately, it went to 5 – same result as the other 2. Got to be frustrating for the guys, too.

  • Cindy Luis

    You’re right. they lost 16-14 to PSU, 17-15 to Stanford.
    it was 8-6 when a couple of calls went against them, part of the reason Wade pulled Hunt.

  • Jogga

    It has got to be frustrating for Umlauft who plays his heart out every game only to have the team lose.

    It is a little bit like Alex Klineman who won all these awards including the recent POY, however, one thing she never got was the national championship for Stanford women. I guess a lot has to do with the supporting teammates.

  • Cindy Luis

    Klineman was VB mag’s POY. she didn’t get AVCA which I think is more prestigious. Team success is more iimportant to most players.

    • Jogga

      I don’t think I made myself clear. I do understand that team success is more important to most players. What I was actually saying was that despite Klineman and Umlauft being outstanding players, in Klineman’s case, she wasn’t able to win a national championship because it seemed maybe her team had a lack of chemistry, in that they were not clicking well all at the same time.

      Like with UH now, they have come close to beating Penn, Stanford and San Diego with Umlauft playing well, but then either Hunt or Walker was not playing well when they needed to. So in a sense, there is a lack of chemistry or cohesiveness that allows them to beat some good teams.

  • Wawa

    So Hunt was pulled during the UCSD match at 8-6?? if that is true, when is he going to learn that is behavior is detrimental to this team’s success. My goodness. It’s a shame because this kid has the talent to be one of the top OH’s in the conference.

    • warriorfan

      The guy just lets frustration get the best of him, he needs to get over bad things and concentrate. He let a few serves go and they were called in, got frustrated and proceded to shank the next serves…….

  • jmy

    I hope that this year’s team isn’t falling into that win one-lose one pattern…although at 1-5, that does sound pretty good.

  • Aloha Cindy

    We’ll be at the game tonite. I haven’t seen this year’s version on Warrior Volleyball. We’ll stop by and say hello if you’re not busy.

    The Tuyays

  • Kaneohe Kid

    Watching TV I noticed a lot of “block and out” by UH. Also, is that stat tracked? When you “block and out” it means the other team scores a point. During the set, sometimes that results in 3-5 points for the other team. Seems to me that UH needs to practice their technique so that blocks result in points for UH.

    • Cindy Luis

      you’ll notice that UH does a lot of ‘tooling’ the block as well. there is a stat for Blocking error but that isn’t what you’re asking. the block-and-out is not a stat in the box but one that coaches look at when reviewing film. There is a new stat program being developed that a lot of schools are investing in. Lead guy was at the OUtrigger to discuss personalizing the program to what UH coaches wanted.
      some of the block and out … is being late on the block, not closing when there’s two guys up, etc. someone who is really good at tooling is Chanteal Satele. It helps a smaller player score against a taller block.

  • This was a really surprising loss. I’m sure they’ll do better tonight though!
