Hawaii-NMSU rewind

October 31st, 2010

Hawaii took care of business pretty well. Mafua said she was happy that with all the distractions of homecoming weekend that they stayed focused.
Not sure how much spark will be left for Louisiana Tech tomorrow but don’t think they’ll need much. Could be the shortest match of the year.
UH finished hitting .384 to NMSU’s .140. They did a nice job on the Aggies, who threw out a lineup they’d never used, going with a 6-2, and Tonga on the right.
Giddens hit .194 with 12 kills. Woods 3-3-14.
Agree that Satele is becoming a solid blocker, helped by being next to Hewitt, but teams underestimate how well Satele jumps.
And Brennan certainly underestimated Danielson’s jump. Although Kanani only got credit for one solo, it should have been two.
Waber did play a nice match but NMSU kind of left her alone. she was 7-1-12. Hartong 7-1-15. UH with 6 aces, 8 SEs. NMSU 2 aces, 9 SEs.
Quick turnaround for the team and me. Heading over the Pali. Good night for now. Happy Halloween.

    Just looked at NMSU website. Jordan had some nice words to say about UH including they are national contenders. I don’t understand what he means when he says “They play higher than some of the bodies are”. Anyone have a clue?

    • Yabba-Dabba-Doo November 1, 2010 at 6:19 am

      NMS has no talent and they’re poorly coached.

      Hewitt had the best explanation for the 23-25 score in set 3. ” Getting on the bus before it was over ”

      Today I’ll be waiting to see how generous the poll is to Texas after taking out #2 Nebraska, the upset of the week.

    • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 11:21 am

      Coach Jordan made the comments when he was sitting down with Ann and me, and their SID took some notes. He’s meaning they play bigger than their actual height, the way the can jump, their vertical, etc.

  • jesusofsuburbia October 31, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    Sounds like they play bigger then their height?
    Also any questions as to why is Kanani hitting softer and rolling and off speed shots as of late? Well, tonight she showed she can bring it when she wants to and if necessary. She knows when to “bring it” which is refreshing and a nice relief for UH fans that were concerned..

    In terms of NMSU, I like Giddens. She is a really fighter and can play and bring heat. I am impressed with Kelsey Brennan, She is a good middle for NMSU.. Also Amanda Tonga will be their go to next year..

  • warriorfan October 31, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Was that Jane and Monica at the match?

    • 808 November 1, 2010 at 6:00 am

      Yes, and they were at the match on Friday too.

  • dino November 1, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Is Kanani pacing herself,saving her arm for the postseason? Forsythe’s play bodes well for postseason and hope to see her and the other girls get more pt vs the weakest team in the WAC mon.

    • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 11:18 am

      Kanani knows her body. She’s a very smart player. UH’s practices are tougher than a lot of the WAC matches.

      • dino November 1, 2010 at 5:25 pm

        If that’s so and we all take your word for it, will they open up practices to the public? or is it too distracting for the players,we pay good money to what really ends up looking like a practice game on some WAC matches lasting 90 min.

        • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 5:33 pm

          Dino, practices are closed but I’ve never seen Shoji kick anyone out who happened to drop by. Most of them are at 630 a.m. in Gym I. they move to the afternoons usually the day before a home match and then it’s the SSC.
          One of the reasons that Shoji was against the matches going to 25 from 30 was that they were so short and he felt the fans weren’t getting their monies worth. Agree you’re paying a premium for 90 minutes, you probably spent more time getting to the match and then going home.

  • al November 1, 2010 at 2:22 am

    isn’t her name pronounced

    shan teel

    and not

    shan tell
    shawn tell
    shawn tee

    if i am correct please walk over to whisper into jim leahey and mrs. ma’a ear please.


    • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 10:52 am

      yes it is pronounced SHAN TEEL

    No WAC POW for Wahine.Award went to Nevada senior middle blocker Lindsay Baldwin .

    UH nominated Dani Mafua “averaged 12.11 assists and 2.22 digs.

  • Howard November 1, 2010 at 8:15 am

    Wahine move up to #4

  • K.T.Watts November 1, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Never did see Croson but I really wasn’t looking that hard. Hope she had a good stay and enjoyed the matches.

  • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 10:13 am

    Didn’t see her either. I wasn’t the one who said she was coming.

  • Cindy Luis November 1, 2010 at 10:15 am

    As for POW, no one really stood out. The SID ask Ann and me who he should nominate. We agreed on Mafua but no one thought the WAC would give it to a setter.

  • Warrior15 November 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    if anything, it was good for hawaii to defend against a 6-2 again, b/c a number of top teams this year are running it … and it’s likely Hawaii will see it in the postseason.

    Although NMSU did have trouble with execution in a system new to them …

  • frances November 3, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Jane Croson and Stauber were at the game!

  • Cindy Luis November 3, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    Yes, we’ve mentioned that. The two came with their dads and went to the postmatch potluck with the boosters. Letter of Intent Day is next Wednesday, Nov. 10.
