    Not much negative to say. Hawaii was very efficient. Passing allowed Uiato to use all of her weapons. Wahine
    Adolpho had a monster match, connected well on the step outs. Think Vorster getting off to a good start early helped.
    The Beach obviously not what they have been. But they have some injuries. Still, block a little slow, defense slow to react and serving very soft.
    Think the Wahine needed this one for their confidence as they head to the road. Cal Poly and UCSB should be interesting.

      I think it is obvious from last week and this week that even though the first round of matches is not done yet, the Big West is going to help make the Rainbow Wahine better. Even though Long Beach was too easy last night, they and Coach G. will be back and better. But beyond that, this team is already better for being tested and pushed to find ‘it’ in themselves something that the WAC never did. The games on the road will challenge the team and get them ready for post-season play in the NCAA tournament. The fact that there is no conference championship tourney to determine the NCAA bid adds the necessity to win in league play. The home and home series means teams will be more challenging the second time around and the Wahine will have to be ‘better’ and ‘add some new twists’, too. The Big West will help us recruit wise with half the games played in the backyard of California recruits and West Coast recruits whose families can plan on making it to some or all of half the games. Also the Big West streams the matches live on the internet. All this is good. The WAC was too easy to win and did not have ‘game’ and Hawaii suffered for it at NCAA tournament time. But now there will be no ‘easy’ matches and the team will have to be ‘up’ for all games or they might get upset by one of their conference foes. All this will make the Hawaii Wahine better come post-season and that will be good – win or lose.

      5 kills, 2 errors, 13 attacks, 2 digs, 1 block. Hit .231, the lowest on the team.

    I noticed that too about the serving LB was serving way too easy. They really didn’t put much pressure on the passers for Hawaii and they pretty much were able to run their offense.

    The next road trip “should not” be much of a problem. Cal Poly is the last place team in the Big West at 1-14, and UCSB is really down this year.

      I’m glad you put “should not” in parentheses! I didnt think their recent road trip would be much of a challenge but man was I wrong!

    What I took away from tonight was their serve/receive, the best I’ve seen all season. Uiato made a few bad choices even with a good pass, and I was seeing a few too many trap sets to the LS not allowing esp. Jane to hit line, only the cross was open. Irvine’s lollipops lead to zero aces and the Beach got a lucky one on the cable. Tonight was also the best for the middle connection, 15-1-23. Put tonight in the memory banks ladies for the upcoming road trip.

      When the opposing team serves lollipops and mister softys over the net, it makes the receiving team stand out with right on the kala (money) passes to the setter.

    I finally went to watch the Wahine at the Stan Sheriff last night and man was it a fun atmosphere! Especially when they would show the fans in the stands doing crazy dances.
