Not sure why Leahey not here but Howard D is along side Chris McLachlin.
Looking like LIsa Strand Ma’a and Kevin Wong on the other side of OC’s broadcast.
Wahine starters Adolpho, Hartong, Uitao, Maeda, Croson, Vorster, Longo.
Chris mentioned that Chuck was being honored by Campbell High School as Best Teacher for the last 50 years.

Good rally to start. Longo covered the dumpshot. Crson converts 1-0
Not the best of rotations. Maeda playing well but way too much left side to Croson. LBSU up 4=1
At 5-5, Kastl in on left.
Probably Hawaii’s strongest rotation with Croson serving. UH up 8-5. Vorster 3-0-6
UH up 15-10 at the TTO. UH hitting .200 10-4-30-, LBS 111. 6-3-27. Kastl 2-2-4, Vorster 3-0-6, Croson 2-2-8, Hartong 2-0-10, Adolpho 1-0-1. 15 digs, 1 bloc
Quite the mismatch in the middle. Vorster 4-0-9. TO LBS.
Uiato and Adolpho on the block. UH up 23-15. TO LBS. Hawaii very business like, not a lot of unforced errors. Wahine with 4 blocks.
Hawaii very efficient in winning 25-17.
Wahine hit 256 15-4-43, Kastl 2-2-5, Vorster 4-0-8, Croson 3-2-13, Hartong 3-0-12, Adolpho 3-0-4. 20 digs, 6 by Maeda, 5 by Longo, 4 blocks, 3 BA by Uiato, 3 BA by Vorster. 1 ace, 1 SE
LBS 12-7-43, Mackie 2-0-10, Algner 3-5-15, Reid 3-2-7, Okpala 2-0-3, Serna 2-0-4, 2 block, 20 digs.0 aces, 2 SEs
Same lineups for both teams in Set 2.
It’s still early but jade and Longo playing well….
Vorster getting a lot of 1-on-1s as LBS releases to the outside. Longo is playing well but so is Maeda.
Ace by Hartong Makes it 8-4.
Long Beach flopped its lineup, hoping to get a better matchup with Serna on Adelopho. we’ll see how that works.
Croson on the X makes it 15-9 at the TTO And yes, the 49ers server clearly over the a few plays back.
she’s been getting away with it all match long… 3 or 4 times already!
twice at least.
What a great job Wong is doing calling the play by play
Wong isn’t calling the play by play. It’s MacLachlin and Dashefvsky.
Or was that Howard D?
Not listening so i don’t know who is doing PbyP. it’s not Wong for sure
How large is the crowd?
Good crowd. but i’m bad at counting. maby 6800? Kastl with the kill it’s 17-11. TO Beach.
Not real impressed with The Beach tonight. Guess we’ve been used to sharper play and a more dynamic setter. UH keeping it close with their service errors. Croson out of the back row goes into the second level. it’s 22-16. Double sub with Stauber and Goodman in.
UH wins set 25-16 and it wasn’t that close. UH hit 636 for Set 2, Beach 160.
As much as I want the Wahine to win, I wish LB would play better….
Vorster 4-1-11, Croson 7-2-18, Hartong 7-0-18, Adolpho 6-0-7, Kastl 5-2-9, 3 aces, 5 SEs, 26 digs, 7 by Longo, 6 by Maeda 5 blocks, 1 solo and 3 BA by Vorster, 3 BA by Maeda.
for 49ers Mackie 5-2=16, Reid 7-2-11, Okpala 4-0-6, Serna 3-2-8, Anger 3-5-16. 26 digs, 11 by Johnson, 3 blocks. 0 aces, 3 SEs.
Debbie Green’s departure probably had something to do with that…the setter part, anyway…
Green no longer on staff probably does hurt. But her daughter Nicole Vargas is on staff.
Great to see Ginger Long stepping up. Appreciate how Shoji sees that as well.
Long played well Thursday. has a good serve, hits well from the back row. just a little undersized to be in the front.
Long is same height as Satele, Croson, Otineru, Tano and is taller than Danielson. If we are talking body type/muscle mass, Tano and Duggins were slimmer than her. I just don’t get the “too undersized to be up front.” I think the proper term is “not good enough” to see significant time as a front row player.
they mentioned leahey being honored at campbell for its 50th anniversary being named too teacher of the last 50 years.
As for Uiato, much improved tonight setting up the offense effectively and well spread out getting what looks like a lot of production from the middles as well.
Think The Beach’s block is very slow to react. Uiato has distributed well and they have no answer for Adolpho on the step outs when she times it right. The passing has allowed her to have all options.
Any yellow cards for Gimmillaro yet? No match would be complete without one…
Not even close to a yellow. only complaints he can have is about his team. he might throw a clipboard.
Hope Shoji is talking to the refs about the foot faults they keep missing by Long Beach
I’m sure he’s mentioned the foot faults. Not sure why The beach went outside twice, stuffed twice. 49ers went back to the lineup they started in Set 1.
Hartong hits through the block off a bumpset from Long. it’s 6-3. TO Beach
Thought score was 6-3 UH
It is. 6-3
They just fixed it
UH with its 9th block. It’s 10-4. TO Beach.
Stream went out arrrgh
Anybody know if they rebroadcasting this match tomorrow?
Tomorrow morning two times in a row, starting at 8:00 I believe…could be wrong…
Setters trade dumps, Roenickie’s covered. Uiato’s not dug. 14-7.
I think the 1st replay is at 11 am then at 2
Wins repeated over and over again.
Well its all screwed up now, going in and out.
stream is fine for me …
Finally called the FF.
Took them long enough
I don’t understand why Oceanic cannot anticipate these issues.
Totally different team when the middles are involved. Go Wahine!!!!
Another Wahine volleyball game ruined by Oceanic.
uH serving for the match at 24-19. sorry wireless went out
Vorster with her 7th kill ends it 25-19
Zig, you might already know this but Internet service in the States sucks big time in terms of speed AND cost! This is a sample article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/05/internet-speed-united-states-digital-divide_n_1855054.html
Howard D said Jim L was honored by Campbell HS tonite. I think Howard did a better job tonite…
We may not be able to watch the match against Cal Poly next week due to conflict with soccer as the announcer said (I watched the earlier match where Cal Poly lost in three straight sets to UCSB.) Like Riverside, Cal Poly is winless in the Big West. I believe that Shoji will be able to clear his bench in that match and rest our starters. This is Cal Poly’s worst year ever. Can anyone reveal who was the one person who gave Cal Poly the vote of Big West champion this year? Hope it wasn’t Shoji (who might not have wanted to vote for Long Beach). Any guess?
Love that Adolpho. Always did like her. If she can literally elevate her step out ala Amber K. or Bown, using some of her basketball skills, she could become the most formidable player in the NCAA. Recall, Penn State could not stop Amber in the semi-finals. After a recent slump Emily H. is finally living up to expectations. For quite a while I was pessimistic about HI, now I’m more than satisfied w/ their play against LBS. This time HI made & earned most of the points despite good defense especially in the first part of the initial set. This is good to see. The last set was all very muddled up by Time Warner so it hard to tell then.
