UH-BYUH rewind

November 8th, 2012

I’ll get back to this when I get home. but for now …

Thought UH played pretty well, especially early. Croson 13-2-32 with two aces and Longo with four aces, all in Set 1. Vorster 6-0-7, Olevao 2-1-3, Hartong 9-3-32, Adolpho 1-0-1 (1 set), Goodman 0-1-2 (1 set), Tuaniga 2-0-3 (1 set), Kastl 3-2-8 (1 set), Hagins 2-0-4 (2 sets.

They used all 17 players. 6 blocks, a season-high 12 aces, 42 digs, 4 SE.

Hagemeyer, BYUH’s left-handed opposite, with 10 kills. Seasiders with 1 aces, 9 SE, 3 blocks, 42 digs.

    Emily Maeda led the team with 9 digs.

      Maeda did play well. spoke with her after the match. said she thought BYUH played well, dug their hard shots which surprised UH a little.

    Hartong struggled not sure why,.

    • Cindy Luis November 9, 2012 at 10:34 am

      I don’t think Hartong struggled that much. There was one play where she was set 3 times, dug twice and didn’t set up well on a tight set …. and it ended up being an error.
      that was from the right side.
      BYUH did stack the block on her when she went left.
      When Croson started going off, BYUH blocking changed and Hartong had better opportunities.

    I think we need to lineup the block against lefthanded hitters better. They seem to have too much success against our block. Otherwise it was another case of Wahine being more athletic and talented than their opponent. I don’t want to get too used to that especially with Big West opponent looking to be spoilers for the Wahine end of year party followed by Round one, two, three and I do hope more in the Tournament. Good workmanlike job tonight by whole team. Go Wahine! Focus on the road, stay together as a team and stay strong. See ya when you get back for CSF and Senior Night for Emily M.

    Hawaii has always struggled against left-handed hitters and tip shots.

    • Cindy Luis November 9, 2012 at 10:42 am

      Agree. Hawaii has had trouble with left-handed opposites and Hagemeyer is a very smart player. Those RS lefties are rare but very valuable because teams don’t see a lot of them.

    I thought the passing struggled the whole night

    great to see JC killing it!! hope their road trip will be as successful…

    Hartong struggled early, getting blocked and digged with her hard shots, but got it going later in the match. What can you say about Jane, she was here, there, everywhere, talk about high volley IQ. So happy to have you back Jane! So is that the starting lineup???
    Croson, Hartong LS and Olevao RS???

    • Cindy Luis November 9, 2012 at 10:38 am

      Don’t know if that’s the set lineup. What Wong said was he was glad that they were able to play everyone AND every lineup that they’d be considering.
      Olevao can play right or left. I don’t see UH having a ‘set’ lineup. I think Shoji will take advantage of the number of subs he has. Bring in Goodman and Kastl when needed.
      I did think Croson played extremely well. there was one play in Set 3 where she was LS, blocked the 1-on-1 back, slid over to cover the shot in the middle, dug it then hit in the middle for the point.
      As for the passing, BYUH doesn’t have the heat that Hawaii sees in practice. took a while for the Wahine to adjust their passing for the softer shots. and think they overcompensated for the soft which led to tight sets or overpasses.

        I cheered that play as well!!! It was all Croson :)
