    UOP going with 6-2
    What is their head coach talking about?

  • uhfan November 16, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    It’s basically the Hartong and Croson show now. Middles and RS are pretty much non existent

    • Cindy Luis November 16, 2012 at 5:38 pm

      Wahine win set 1 25-16. same score that the Wahine basketball teams leads UT Martin

  • uhfan November 16, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Wahine get blocked a lot in the 2nd game. Trail 15-18.

    • uhfan November 16, 2012 at 5:49 pm

      Make that 15-19 now. Timeout Hawaii.

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Sloppy way to end set 2…UH should be up 2-0…

    • Cindy Luis November 16, 2012 at 6:02 pm

      UH rallies from 23-19 to tie it at 25-. Pacific wins 27-25 to tie the match.

  • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    jeez what a disgusting way to lose that set.

    • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:04 pm

      Kinda brings back memories of how the men’s team played last season: tie score, service error, get aced…Hopefully UH can win it in four…

    • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:08 pm

      agreed, they look too anxious

  • Oh My November 16, 2012 at 6:10 pm

    That was such a sloppy set for the Wahine,had a chance to pull it out but choked

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Already down 10-6…

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Wahine down 5 early on set 3, blocking not working, whos setting, cant really see as the online feed is awful?
    Whoever it is pacific pretty much got her playbook.

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    UH being outblocked 10-4…Awful…

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    This is so painful to watch

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    finally a block

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    what is wrong with the left side block? it’s very weak

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    stop making errors

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    One step forward, two steps back…UOP is not all that good…

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    Another hitting error…

  • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    the defense is horrendous , Jane making a billion errors and Hartong struggling in the backrow. not good.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    pacific playing loose and relax, Wahine playing tight and toooooo sloooooww on their feet. They keep challenging the blocks as well

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    do we have a middle?

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    WHERE IS OUR MIDDLE? THEY ARE NONEXISTENT. THEY ARE NOT GETTING TO THE OUTSIDE BLOCK, ESPECIALLY THE LEFT SIDE AND THEY’RE NOT BEING SET.

    • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:37 pm

      no the plan for set 3 is to set left side all the way and wish on the wishing well it works.

      • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:37 pm

        block? what’s a block?

  • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    wahine are just a horrible road team.

    • Cindy Luis November 17, 2012 at 5:28 pm

      WF, wouldn’t say they are a horrible road team they had to go 5 to beat UOP at home.
      bottom line, they haven’t lost on the road. should have a couple of times, CSUN comes to mind
      But they have figured out how to win.

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    If they play like this in the NCAA Tourney, they’ll have a very short run…

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Another set: Too little, too late…

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Hawaii’s weakness is definitely the blocking on the opponent’s right-side hitter. Any team with a dominant right-side will be able to beat Hawaii.

    • Cindy Luis November 16, 2012 at 6:42 pm

      Hawaii’s late rally again fails, UOP wins 25-22

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    I think Hawaii should try to beat Pacific now. It’s probably a good time to start trying.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Wahine has more digs, assists, kills, and service aces than Pacific, if the coaches cant figure out what to do, I seriously doubt this team will go beyond first round.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    lol, Pacific keep bump setting and you can almost expect they get the point.

  • Zig November 16, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Once again it’s like watching an indoor team playing a beach volleyball team.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    dont know if na wahine watch videos of their past games, this is a keeper. to call it a humbling experience is an understatement.

    • Cindy Luis November 16, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      Wahine win Set 4 25-16

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    set 4, Wahine played like they did in set 1-ranked #7 in the country

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Jane and Emily with 13 digs each while Longo with 19.
    Adolpho and Croson not having a good night hititng wise.

  • cracker barrel menu November 16, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    I am in fact grateful to the holder of this website who
    has shared this great paragraph at here.

  • menehune November 16, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Stanford over UCLA in four….helps the Wahine if they can beat the Tigers in five.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Kudos to Wahine just hammering away in set5

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Now this is more like it…

  • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    well gotta love how they grind out wins on the road, it aint pretty, but Vorster, Croson and Hartong stepped it up late.

  • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    set 5 was all WAHINE.
    Credit tot he Wahine for pulling this one out.
    I am very concern that their inconsistencies will hunt them when it matters the most. I am hoping Im wrong.

  • uhfan November 16, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Hartong had another All-American night. Vorster played well too. The RS is pathetic with Hartong not there anymore.

  • We Love The # 5 November 16, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Doing it the hard way again,seems to be a trend this year,not good for my heart.

  • TW November 16, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Hard to evaluate the right side since sets don’t go there. UH is playing 3 on 6…can’t go far with a two hitter offense! If only Croson and Hartong get set how can anyone else be expected to contribute much.

    • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:51 pm

      did not see most of set 1, who started at RS in set 1?

  • volleyball fan November 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Wow, both matches up north, Davis and Stockton went to five sets. In the fifth set Northridge was ahead and had match point a couple of times but Davis staved it off. I bet that Davis will give the Hawaii a terrific fight on senior’s night. Hawaii will need to be much sharper tomorrow night. I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes to five games once again.

    • beauston November 16, 2012 at 7:53 pm

      this is a good break in game for Croson, the most challenging match they had since she came back and most sets thrown her way since as well. given that said, I expect her to be hot tomorrow. Tonight was a good warm up.

  • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Ugh UW gets lucky again, the refs totally robbed Oregon of a win.

  • WT Door November 16, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Great win ladies. Only the great teams win all the close ones…..keep it rolling!

    • Cindy Luis November 16, 2012 at 8:20 pm

      UH wins 15-7. Will have to catch up after I finish with Wahine basketball story.

  • jmy November 16, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Looking at the positives, UH hit pretty well, blocked pretty well (in sets 4 & 5), and served extremely well…but I agree with a previous post, playing from behind will catch up to them sooner or later…

    • warriorfan November 16, 2012 at 10:42 pm

      Getting nothing from the right will catch up to them, Kastl/Goodman/Olevao needs to step it up,

      Nikki Taylor can’t come soon enough.

      • SamIAm November 20, 2012 at 1:16 am

        Looking at it a player can’t get any tempo going being put in for 2 seconds which is happening alot to some of those players….

  • dom November 16, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    mita set vorster 25 times so she set the middles a lot, and kalei just had a hard time putitng it down.
    It’s too early to be excited for another player. High school and D1 college are too different monsters. even the top recruits come in very tentative. ex, katherine fowler.

  • Kazu November 17, 2012 at 3:36 am

    They can’t be playing like this in the NCAA Tournament.Watched part of the Stanford/ USC, and that was exciting.

  • Grammy November 17, 2012 at 8:25 am

    The Big West second round shows why the switch from the Wac is going to be good for the Wahine. There are players and coaches here who change and challenge us. They play until the final whistle and the Wahine have had to adapt their game plans and raise their level of play to win, but the upside is that they have done exactly that. If that’s what it takes to win in the NCAA then they are definitely ready after this conference season. The coaches will do their thing: planning favorable matchups if necessary and blocking schemes and service targets and substitution patterns. But two things for sure to go into the tournament we’ve got players and we’ve got ‘fighting spirit’. The Wahine have won in varied ways with contributions from different people stepping up. I know they will achieve their rightful place when all is said and done. And that they will have left it all out on the floor when it is over. Win or lose, I will always appreciate that this group of young women warriors will be worthy of our adoration and will not disappoint except those who only see the final result and demand perfection. I know they are not perfect but they are the best that they can be and will be prepared and ready to make us proud again and again. Go Wahine!

  • hollycow November 17, 2012 at 10:02 am

    All these negative talk, “they can’t be playing like this”, “getting nothing from the right side will catch up with them”, “playing from behind will catch up with them”, hey gang we all know these facts, all these negative vibes ain’t helping them at all. The team and coaches know all these short comings and are leaving it all on the floor never, never ever giving up every time out.

    • jmy November 17, 2012 at 12:55 pm

      Let’s say nothing but positive things from now on! Even when things aren’t so positive & blogs should include both positive & negative.

      • wowlaulau November 17, 2012 at 1:40 pm

        We all know these obvious facts, bring up something that the players, coaches and we on the blog don’t know.

        • jmy November 17, 2012 at 2:15 pm

          Gee, I didn’t know that the sole purpose of blogs was to convey earth-shattering news. I thought that it was okay to post observations & opinions too.

          • whattheheck November 17, 2012 at 6:14 pm

            earth shattering in women’s volleyball? like in 9-11 or pearl harbor?

  • Geno Tamayo November 17, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Just wondering if Dave Shoji gets his 1,100 career win at UC Davis Tom. Will there be any type of celebration at the next home game?

    • Cindy Luis November 17, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      Yes, if he wins tonight there will be a presentation on Wednesday.

  • warriorfan November 17, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    future wahine Keani Passi led College of Southern Idaho to the junior college national championship.

    Was impressed with how much heat she packs on her hits from the right and she had some amazing digs, very good server too.
