    Hey Cindy, see you made it out to Laie. Hope you were able the watch or listen to some of the match. Jane Croson sure loves the spot light, tournament matches.

  • dedicatedfan

    Happy, Hagins got some court time, thinking they will need her tomorrow.

  • dedicatedfan

    Tomorrow, watch the Hawaii Men’s Basketball team beat UNLV, then watch the Wahine win, and go to the Regionals. Finally, DVR the Warrior Football game, to be watch after the Wahines triumph.

  • HINVaFan

    I think it was a great game, but middles need more involvement. Amanda Gil will be camped on left side if it’s all left side

  • Will the game be on OC16 tomorrow and if so what time? A lot of Hawaii sports tomorrow.

  • Washington dominating Central Arkansas in the first match and I hope we play Washington tomorrow.

  • Great game for the Wahines. Will the game be on TV tomorrow?

  • dedicatedfan

    Cindy, what do you think, do the Wahine have a shot at beating Washington, or will it deja vu, 2010, all over again.

    • Cindy Luis

      If they play like they did today, they have a good shot at winning. Much will depend on Croson getting off to a good start.

  • HINVaFan

    I think the middles need more than 8 attempts to keep the block honest tho

  • sunandsurf

    enjoying the repeat airing of the game now; i’m loving it!

    can’t wait for tomorrow’s match!

  • Maka

    The wahine played loose and awesome. If they play that way tomorrow, which I know they will, and some, the Huskies are going to be in for the match of their lives. I’m going with Na Wahine on this one. Didn’t Amanda Gil plan on playing for Hawaii at one time?
    They should have played at home. That’s okay, use that energy and play your way to the top. Thousands of us here at home are cheering you on……Feel the mana!

  • Manu

    The Wahines looked and were ready for tonight. Keep up the teamwork and stay focused with one thought in mind….Winning! And don’t stop till the fat lady sings. Go Rainbow Wahines!

  • Speed speed and speed , mix up the offense …beat that huskie block, play flawlessly and call it a night for the huskies !

  • SamIAm

    It shall Be interesting . You know they will be camping out on Hartong and croson all night , so if they could POSSIBLY get Uiato to set Kastl and Vorester More , or, whomever it is, would be a great asset …. They should try setting Kastl more , I watched her in the PAC 12 in California last year and she just about popped a couple of balls …..SamIAm ……. Green Eggs And Ham !!!!!!

    Go Wahine !!!!!!

  • sunandsurf

    everyone contributed but there were some awesome digs by longo! hoping maeda will be able to play out of her mind before her college career comes to an end. i know i’m immature but I wish the players could wear a shirt that says something like ‘the selection committee sucks!’

  • Gogetem

    Saw Ryan interview Lauren Duggins Chun during the game. Is she living on the mainland now? Did anyone see Brittney Hewitt at the game? I thought she lived in Washington now.

  • menehune

    Back row defense was incredible. Aly popped up some cannon shots and the front row terminated the rally. All in all, it was a complete team victory. One down and five to go. Also, loved the spirit of the Wahine fans in the standsl. LETS GO BOWS.

  • Kazu

    Should be a fun match against Washington tonight.Tough match, but i think the Wahine’s can beat them. I’d say in five.

    I don’t follow Div 2 volleyball at all, but since you went to Laie. NCAA shipped Div 2 teams to play @ BYU-Hawaii. So the NCAA doesn’t really have a problem sending teams to Hawaii, did they just not want to send Div 1 and 2 teams to Hawaii. Does the NCAA have a formula they use that if Div 2 host in Hawaii then D! will not. UH had a regional last year, so it made sense to host the 1st and 2nd rounds too.

    • Cindy Luis

      Yest, NCAA shipped 7 teams to Hawaii. for DII
      They also had over a week to get travel arrangements
      a little different that the Wahine situation.
      Also NCAA II has just 8 regional sites, three days of play, leading up the the elite eight, three days of competition leading to the title. it’s done in 10 days.
      . NCAA I has 16 subregionals then 4 regionals before the final four. it’s spread out over three weeks
      and the DII level is very transparent. You are ranked in your region and they pretty much stay with those rankings.
      BYUH was No. 1 in the West, 5th in the coaches poll. Huge strength of schedule.
      Still, BYUH was very uncertain it would happen.

    This is the 13th consecutive year the Pac-12 has had at least 6 teams earn post-season berths. The 7 selected is the most for the Pac-12 since receiving 8 selections in 2008.

    [Seed 1] Stanford (28-3, #1 rpi) vs. Western Kentucky (33-3, #28 rpi) @ Stanford … Lady Toppers enters its 7th NCAA tournament in program history … Some of you may remember the Sun Belt champs, for it travelled to Hawai’i to play UH in the 2002 NCAA tournament … Cardinals favored.

    [Seed 5] Oregon (26-4, #10 rpi) vs Dayton (26-7, #20 rpi) @ Oregon … For the Ducks, this is only its third-ever NCAA tournament appearance in program history … Oregon favored but this could be closer than expected.

    [Seed 7] UCLA (23-7, #6 rpi) vs Michigan State (24-9, #36 rpi) @ UCLA …. Michigan State finished tied for 6th in the 12-team Big Ten, and that was good enough for the NCAA committee to send it an at-large … Defending NCAA national champion Bruins favored.

    [Seed 13] Washington (24-6, #16 rpi) vs Hawai’i (27-3, #17 rpi) @ Washington … If anyone saw yesterday’s Huskies vs Central Arkansas action on OC16, you know what the UH is up against: 6′-6″ senior Amanda Gill and 6′-2″ soph Krista Vansant, with All-Conference senior Kylin Munoz and heat-serving frosh Cassie Strickland thrown into the mix …. Washington favored but Hawai’i is peaking at the right time.


    [Seed 6] USC (29-5, #13 rpi), which has made it to the National Semifinals the last two years, goes to the Sweet 16 (Texas regional) for the 5th time in 7 years.


    Unseeded Arizona State (20-14) and unseeded California (15-16), which both tied for 6th in the Pac-12 and which were both ‘bubble’ picks for the at-large, were sent packing in Round 1.

    The Pac-12 and the Big Ten each had 7 teams selected. The Big Ten advanced all 7 of its teams into Round 2. The Pac-12 advanced 5 (all seeds) into Round 2. Let the upsets begin!

  • Gogetem

    I’m sure Amanda Gill will really step up her game now because it has to be in the back of her mind that had she stayed at UCLA, she would have been a national champ winner by now. Go wahines.

  • Vee

    Help! SOS!! for a tech-challenged Wahine fan separated from OC16 access. what’s the link to “stream” tonight’s Washington match from Portland? Could watch it on OC16 in Hnl, but what to do from Oregon?
