    Not a very sharp start to the match. NMSU using a 6-2, including setter Madison Hardy, who was at Hawaii Pacific last season

  • Cindy Luis

    Hewitt’s 3 serves have either been aces or returned on overpasses for UH points. 12-8. TO NMSU

  • Howard

    Notice the slow reaction times by the Wahine when digging ?

  • Cindy Luis

    Not really

  • Howard

    They look really sluggish,not blaming football I think it has more to do with the 5 o clock start.

    • Cindy Luis

      Don’t think a 5 p.m. start is a big difference. usually if they play weekdays, they have school and the prematch protocol starts at 4. Today, no school, prematch at 2. same 3 hours before gametime. And they got to sleep in. I agree that there isn’t as much energy as we’ve seen. but they are pretty efficient.

  • Cindy Luis

    UH up 22-18 TO NMSU.
    Hewitt 1-0-2, Danielson 5-1-10, Satele 1-1-6, Hartong 1-0-1, Waber 2-1-4. UH hitting .333 to NMSU’s 24.

    • Cindy Luis

      UH wins 25-18, UH with 3 blocks, 10 digs to NMSU’ 2 bocks and 10 digs. both teams with 11 kills, but uh hitting .308 to .094. 3 aces, 3 SEs for the Wahine. Danielson 5 kills, NMSU’s Giddens with 4.
      Same starting lineup for Set 2.

  • Cindy Luis

    a new wrinkle with Danielson hitting an X. Her two straight aces has Hawaii up 9-3. TO NMSU

  • Howard

    Now they’re getting to the ball quicker on defense.

    • Cindy Luis

      I think teams are a little slow in the beginning as they get a feel for the rhythm of the game and the other team.

  • Cindy Luis

    NMSU imploding a bit. it’s 17-5. TO Aggies.

  • Cindy Luis

    Great cover by Mafua on the setter dump. it’s 23-10

  • Cindy Luis

    And a great set by Ka’aihue to Waber to finish it. 25-10

  • Cindy Luis

    UH hit 481 to .087 for NMS. Danielson 7-3-17, Waber 7-1-12. Hartong 5-0-7, Hewitt 3-0-4. UH with 2 blocks in Set 2, NMSU 0. and 3 aces in the set, Danielson with 2.

  • Cindy Luis

    Normal pattern for Set 3, Forsythe MB, Hartong LS

  • Howard

    I’m not a fan of this set 3 set up.

  • Cindy Luis

    Goodman in for Satele. pretty big front with Goodman, Hartong and Hewitt.

  • Howard

    When something is working leave it alone .

  • Howard

    This set should have been over a long time ago

  • Cindy Luis

    Yep, Hawaii finishes it off 25-23. Danielson with 11 kills, 3 aces, 3 blocks. Have to go write a story.. will be back laters.

  • Lanaiboy

    Waber hit .500. Good for her. NMS has a solid team with a big weakness—floor defense (especially serve receive) and passing. Danielson really skied tonight and she hit a lots of bullets; looked refreshed and ready. Did make a few unforced errors though. Satele must be one of the best blocking opposites in the country right now.

  • Jogga

    Good to see Forsythe play well tonight. Also good to see Waber hitting a lot smarter. She may be peaking at the right time – just in time for playoffs because they are going to need her to play well. They are also going to need Forsythe. Agree that Satele is a great blocker.

    i wish satele was set more.

  • sunandsurf

    regarding the attendance numbers: homecoming hangover? don’t think that’s the only thing; parents like me are tied up taking their kids trick o treating tonight! i’d rather be at the game with a cold beer!!!!!

  • jesusofsuburbia

    Yes, homecoming hangover, Halloween night, Sunday game, Live tv, are all factors.. Usually we have 1 or 2, but all these don’t help.. However 5k is still GREAT.

  • Lanaiboy

    It was Halloween so I was wondering how it would affect attendance against a traditional rival such as NMS. About 500 fewer than the regular Sunday crowd. Yeah, it is hard to attend a match on Halloween is you have keikis.

  • Satele has not been set as often in the last 2 games as Kanani and Hartong. Still would like to see Forsythe and Hartong team up more often. Any particular reason for underplaying them together??

  • Cindy Luis

    Forsythe and Hartong are a pretty good combo but they’re still working on it. It’s obvious an option but much hinges on Forsythe.

  • Cindy Luis

    Sometimes the passing dictates if Satele gets set. But think with Waber having those open looks, the sets went there.

  • Jimmy Kim

    Would like to see Mafua spread it around a little more. Our middles are good as anybody in the country…getting them touches will open up the outsides. we’re going to need it in the playoffs.

    • Cindy Luis

      Mafua has been spreading it around. but you have to take what the other team gives you, especially when you’re trying to get Waber more in the offense. NMSU doubled on Danielson, committed a lot on Hewitt since she killed them in Las Cruces.
      They are going to give Danielson the most sets, period. and a lot of her attempts weren’t designed plays. they were off balls that she took swings at.
      If you look at the set distribution for Sunday,Hewitt 11, Danielson 25, Satele 17, Hartong 15, Waber 12. That’s pretty balanced in my book.
