Pretty efficient night for Hawaii. Wahine hit .366, but only one block in Set 3. Took 85 minutes. Not a bad crowd 4792 turnstile, 6435 tickets. 20 digs for Ka’aihue out of the team’s 51.
Shoji said in Games 1 and 2 team looked energized, that was good to see. Said they wanted to play well tonight and now will concentrate on NMSU. Priority is to stop Giddens, and not let Woods get hot. Expects it to be a tougher match than the one in Las Cruces. Said Ka’aihue making outstanding plays, not much getting past her.
Boise State coach said Hawaii was a special team, that Ka’aihue was really good, said they couldn’t defend Hawaii when UH is in system.
Asked BSU coach about the NMS-UH match. said that the WAC 2-8 was pretty even, thought NMU would score in the ‘teens’ but that Hawaii was just a better team
OH, about Uiato.
Shoji said she will be here through the HPU match. Apparently there’s a surgery in the family that she’ll be going home for and that she’ll meet up with the team in Fresno.
AND no pink jerseys. they forgot to order them in time. There will be pink volleyballs that will be autographed and auctioned off.
heading over the Pali. check in later.
