RPI out, AVCA poll not, practice & other morning musings

November 28th, 2011

Just got back from running errands after hitting UH’s morning practice.

About 100 people in line when the ticket office opened at 9 a.m. Some of the season ticket holders that had pre paid didn’t realize their tickets were to be picked up at noon.

As for the RPI, Hawaii at No. 7. Illinois still No. 1, texas, Iowa State, Nebraska, UNI, Purdue.

USC at 8, Tennessee and Florida State.

if you look at the seedings and the RPI, they didn’t completely follow it so who knows what they were thinking. Shoji’s feeling is the committee made the bracket Friday night and didn’t care that Nebraska had a bad loss to Northwestern

As for practice, caught the last half hour. good energy and some pretty funny ‘touch, no touch’ exchanges. I would never play poker with Hartong, she didn’t even crack a smile when she had three teammates on the other side closing in on her and yelling, touch, touch. Hartong finally put her hand up to admit it.

Uiato had two straight back dumps that were impressive and Tuaniga and Goodman teamed for a couple of solid blocks in succession. Hartong played left and middle.

As per the usual ‘first practice back’ Hewitt (back) and Danielson (various things) out at the end.

be back later with more. gotta write.
