Hope all of you had a relatively calm night. It was interesting. I was without internet until 7 a.m. after getting back from my commitment … which got cut a little short by the sirens … internet down until I went to bed at midnight. I do apologize for not being able to get back on the ‘net. Time for some seriousl discussion with TWC. Ever since we dropped the home phone through them this had become nearly a daily occurrence.
Thank you all for staying with the blog … hope you were on higher ground when you were doing so. Appreciate everyone who updated for me.
The good news is Hawaii continues to find a way to win. They should based on their edge in talent but they are living on the edge and not sure if the magic will always be there.
25-21, 22-25, 19-25, 25-22, 15-10
If Hartong isn’t POW by the BWC something is really wrong.
another 79 swing night for her. 29 kills. only complaint you could have about her game is her 4 SEs. UH had 10 as a team. But she alsy had 2 aces so ….
Kastl inconsistent but 9-8-30. and another double-digit dig night with 12
Vorster finding a way 11-1-21. lone error when she when she over tipped the ball left, 3 BA
Olevao 8-4-26, still a young player but she’s going to be very good
Uiato … 54 assists 0-1-3 (Usually more effective on dumps, her one error she tflipped behind her shoulder into the net, 13 digs, 1 aces
Hartong 29-8-79 Another double-double with 16 digs. 2 BA
Adolopho 4-2-9, a number of net violations, something she did last year, 1 BS 4 BA
Tuangia very briefly in 0-0-1
Longo 1 ace, 2 SE, 13 digs
Stauber 5 assists, 8 digs
Hagins came in late in Set 3 played in 4 and 5, think her size did create some problems. forcing UCI to readjust. 2-0-3, 1 BA
Maeda 1 ace, 1 SE, 5 digs.
UH hit 255 for the night 5 aces, 10 SE, 81 digs, 9 blocks
UCI hit 234, 8 aces, 10 SEs, 80 digs, 11.5 blocks.
one think you’ll notice and think it speaks to UH’s conditioning.
they hit better in Sets 4 and 5 than the other 3 sets. 324 in Set 4, .323 in Set 5
the bottom line is they are 19-2, 12-0.
in 5 set matches, UH 4-1
