    Wonder if the Texas loss will help or hurt the Wahine?

  • Jesse September 28, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Was able to watch two matches and I am not impressed with texas or purdue. Both were on the road though and the wahine werent impressive on the road either.

    • Cindy Luis September 28, 2011 at 5:35 pm

      First road match of the year, young team at key positions. the important thing is they won.

  • Cindy Luis September 28, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    good question steve. I don’t know. There’s so much season left. you’ve got another 9 weeks before the NCAA tournament.

    • Steve September 28, 2011 at 5:40 pm

      Cindy, I believe, you have mentioned it before, there is alot of balance this year, among the Elite Teams. Looks like it could come down to whoever is hot at the end. No real dominating team.

  • Steve September 28, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    From all the Elite Teams that I have seen so far, have not seen a team that is real strong in serve/receive, yet. I know it is still early, but….

    Oklahoma win helps UH, Oklahoma has lost to UH opponents Wichita State and Cincinnati.

    • Cindy Luis September 28, 2011 at 6:03 pm

      I agree that it will help this week but everyone still has so much more to play.

  • Steve September 28, 2011 at 6:12 pm

    Cindy, were you at practice today, if so, how did it go? Hope Shoji rest, as much as possible, his walking wounded. Hate to see them get worse. It is only the WAC conference teams, right now.

    • Cindy Luis September 28, 2011 at 7:30 pm

      no i didn’t go to practice. Ann went but I haven’t heard back from her about how things went.

    Not surprised Hawaii still leads the country in Attendance. Am surprised that Texas lost. Lots of parity for sure this season..

  • Peter Rivera September 29, 2011 at 4:23 am

    Hi Cindy,

    On a different note do you know where I can get a UH Wahine Volleyball Media Guide, as I’ve bought one each year for the last 20 years.

    A long time diehard fan,


    • Kazu September 29, 2011 at 5:15 am

      Maybe they are not having them this year.I sent an email Rainbowtique,but no response.Guess i’ll wait for an answer from Cindy,cause i’d like to order one too.

      • Lanaiboy September 29, 2011 at 5:53 am

        I thought that Hawaii, like many other schools, does not print media guides any more. Costs too much. It makes it available on its website for download or home printing.

        • 808 September 29, 2011 at 12:57 pm

          Lanaiboy, how do you download it?

  • Cindy Luis September 29, 2011 at 6:24 am

    Media guide was printed out in a limited quantity for the media by UH.
    It is available online for download at

    Good am! Great article in the StarAdv this morning about
    Griffy. Evidently Maeda has partially mastered Shoji’s ways
    as a Libero, correct, as compared to Griffy? How about the
    other girls like Blake and Kam? what’s your take on Shoji’s
    choice as the season progresses?

    • Cindy Luis September 29, 2011 at 6:58 am

      good morning to you. Ann did do a nice story on Griffiths today.
      I think you’ll see both Maeda and Griffths on the court during matches. they might swap roles during a match, one at L the other at DS to start.
      Between Blake and Kam, you likely will see more of Blake. Kam does have a nice serve. Blake has nice hands as a former setter and is a good option to take that second ball
      Shoji should be able to use his entire bench most WAC matches.

      • LC September 29, 2011 at 7:10 am

        I don’t remember his name but the head coach at New Mexico State said in an interview yesterday with Aggie Vision that Hawaii is better at the outside and middles this year but libero and setter are their weak points.

        If you would like to watch the WAC’s great pretender and his team today catch their match against Idaho on ESPN 3 at 3 pm HST

    A repeat comment from Ann’s article.
    Can’t recall anyone mentioning this. There are 3 players from the same high school playing for Hawaii. No not from Hawaii but California’s Los Alamitos High. Alex Griffiths, Emily Hartong and Jane Croson. How great are the odds for that to happen. Who’s next, Dave should look into it.

    • LC September 29, 2011 at 1:21 pm

      sophomore Crissy Jones 6’2 MB

  • pudundo September 29, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    Is she looking to play for the Wahine? And is she any good?

    • LC September 29, 2011 at 3:00 pm

      I have no idea what her plans are .Saw a photo of her wearing a UCLA Volleyball shirt so that may say something. I know she plays beach VB also.

      ESPNHS named her one of the top 10 player at the Durango Classic and said this.
      “Crissy Jones, Los Alamitos (Los Alamitos, Calif.):This 6-2 sophomore middle blocker takes control of the net when she’s up. With a nice high reach and a quick snap on quick sets, she’s a nice addition to Los Al’s balanced attack on the outside.”

      She also made PrepVB’s Top Freshman last last year.
