Hawaii-NMSU rewind

September 29th, 2010

Let’s move the discussion over here.
Great hitting numbers by the Wahine, led by Hewitt’s .917. It sounded like her only attempt that didn’t go down was one of those patty-cake things where they were jousting at the net. still 11-0-12 pretty darn good.
Danielson 9-5-27 with 11 digs. first time in a while she hasn’t had a double-double.
Satele 11-2-19, Hartong 5-0-6, Waber 5-1-12.
Not much substitution by Shoji. Uiato got in briefly in two sets, Forsythe in for 1.
The Aggies had NO blocks to UH’s 7. Wahine hit .383.
Ka’aihue with 16 digs. She came in averaging 4.47 dps.

    Could this be Hewitt’s turn to be WAC Player of the Week? I sure hope so…Don’t have digital so I had to follow the live stats…Did it look as lopsided as the scores/stats indicate?

      Watched it. Wahine were in system and never let NMSU get going. Overall, better balance and the attack was coming from alll over. The announcers were raving about the team and said they felt this team is better than last year.

    Didn’t watch it either, listened on radio. Ann’s doing the rewrite for tomorrow’s paper.
    Yes, it was that lopsided.
    Mafua moved the ball around well. No blocks for NMSU.
    Compared to the Aggies, the Wahine a pretty tall team. Hewitt probably closer to 6-4 than 6-3.
    I would think if Hewitt has those kind of numbers at LaTech, UH will nominate her for POW.

      I though Hewitt was 6-3? That’s how they list her in the roster. FOrysthe is supposedly 6-4.

      • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:13 pm

        sorry, mistyped that 6-3. closer to 6-4 and Forsythe’s height

    despite the comfortable win by wahine, yes not much substitutions made. expect to see more subs this fridays matchup at latech. the commentators (holly and geeter) mentioned hawaii’s subs and how great it is for dave to get them in, in order to provide depth. They mentioned that in the post season depth in every position will be needed to sustain the competition. interesting, goodman was actually subbed in backrow (i think just to serve) in the match.

    • HH September 29, 2010 at 6:47 pm

      Maybe Shoji wants the option to have Goodman play all of her rotations in the future, like Satele.

  • a-townboi September 29, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    being that this game was televised nationally. great for everyone to see the play of this years team. I know last year it was a big thing to make a showing on national television for dave and team to prove that they were a legit contender. I know he wasn’t stoked about the espnu televised game vs fresno (last year) and the showing they put forth there, but I think he should be sastisfied and pleased with the performance of this game on the national level for everyone to see (even without kanani having to carry everyone on her back).

    • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:17 pm

      They definitely had a better showing than at Fresno State. But that was a match where Mafua could barely see, had this stye in her eye that took away a lot of her peripheral vision. and FSU played very well.

      • a-townboi September 29, 2010 at 7:21 pm

        thanks for insight on mafua. unaware of that, lack for a better word, injury. it’s great to get behind the scene info from you when us fans are only looking from the outside in and making conclusions. thanks again cindy.

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    BTW, Hewitt broke Victoria Prince’s record of 2004 (has it really been that long?)
    She broke Victoria Prince’s rally-scoring record of .867 (vs. SMU on Nov. 19, 2004), while falling one attempt short of becoming just the second UH player ever to have a perfect hitting night with at least 10 attempts.

    hmmm, any guesses who hit 1.000?. I’ll need to look it up but pretty sure I know.

    Judging from the scores of the 3 games, I think it’s safe to say DOMINATION. If we come to play, they better hide the men and children ’cause no WAC team is safe. They’re going to be annihilated.

    My better half tells me Ka’aihue played really well also.

    Oh I can see that title!!!… It’s right there for the taking!!!… We are getting better and we’re going to be scary good heading to nationals. GO BOWS!!!…

    Nobody is gonna wanna be playing the Wahine come nationals ’cause that’s gonna be a quick ticket out for them. And we’re gonna want to play anybody, any where, any time!!!…

    Kanani does not seem to be playing her best recently. Is she too anxious to prove she’s the best in view of the good performances of some of her mates?? Notice much noise by kids while Maeda was serving. Suspect this is done to disturb her concentration. Does this frequently happen during on-the-road games? Presume the HI fans don’t do this to visitors.

  • Cindy Luis September 30, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    Don’t think Danielson’s anxious to prove anything.
    What I saw on TV were young girls seeing themselves on TV and waving up at the big screen while Maeda was serving.
    as for UH fans, now that they’re in the SSC, they aren’t as close as in other arenas. They were pretty in-your-face in the Klum Gym days.
    Seen the UH student section sort of get into heckling the servers, but more for men’s games.
    not like it’s anything new. Look at basketball games with the opponents shooting freethrows. Most would call that homecourt advantage

    Thanks. I stand informed & corrected.
