Warriors-Anteaters rewind Night 2

January 30th, 2010

Another impressive win by Hawaii tonight, again winning the first two and losing the next two, and coming back big in Set 5.

Walker was 5=0-10 in the last set. and Umlauft is just happy to be playing. he said after the match that he never expected the crowd to be so into volleyball. he’s really enjoying it here.

Cervantes said something interesting. Asked him about why they’re winning the tight matches when they lost them the past few years. said that in the past the team was ‘just happy to get to a fifth set.’ but this year they believe they are the team that should win the fifth set.

UCI is really good. they were 14-0-21 in Set 4 and sided out at 90 percent. Clark kind of disappeared at the end. 1-2-7. DuFault had another nice match, finishing with 21 kills as well.

Happy for Rawson, 2 good matches in a row. finally happy and healthy.

Grgas out indefinitely but thought Dyer played really well.

UCLA split with BYU this week. Should be interesting this week against the Bruins.

    Another great match, I was scared they were gonna lose because they looked so flat in that fourth game.

    Matt Rawson is amazing. I am so happy he is playing up to his potential.

    I just wanna say congrats to Raeceen Wolfford for being the highest placing Miss Hawaii since 2003. In my opinion she should have won. She had the best smile by far.

    Hey Cindy, Just wondering, why doesn’t the MPSF do what the WAAC does and send officials to referee matches here? The local refs are getting worse and it’s more frustrating to watch them blow calls and deflate the moral of our team. We see the same people over and over, why isn’t there new people refereeing? Last night’s call in the 4th set was unbelievable and more and more of those are happening. I understand the new rules and the frequency of changes, but somethings are elementary. Thanks.

    Nice job Warriors.

    the local refs do most of the WAC games as well. and I think the WAC has more money than the MPSF for officials’ travel. I could be wrong.
    Yes, it does seem that the officiating is getting worse. That block that bounced off the UCI player’s head but was missed was just sad.
    I’ve written before here about why there aren’t more new people reffing. been told by one official that they don’t want the pressure of being on TV and blowing a call. the refs you see are the ones willing to do it. And you have to be certified at the collegiate level to do these matches. some of the younger refs don’t have the certification.
    there are some new rules that the crowd either doesn’t know about or doesn’t understand. the one about touching the bottom of the net being OK, but not the top of the net, if it doesn’t interfere with the play. or going under the net as long as your feet don’t go under or interfere with play. it’s all a move to the international game. Now why they won’t go to 25, I don’t understand.

    good to win the tough/close matches.

    but gotta be a little concerned that the warriors let uci back into the match after being up 2-0 in games (both nights).

    still though, i like the attitude by cervantes on getting to the 5th game. they’re confident they can pull it out, as opposed to just being happy to stretch the other team that far.

    I thought Jonas was going to get the Player of Week award.

    The Evil empire is coming UCLA We really need to crush them.Having Stein Metzger doing games is like pat Haden doing Nortre Dame. to be fair he’s ok

  • Cindy Luis February 2, 2010 at 9:10 am

    Thought Jonas would have as well.
    Jeff be nice. IMHO the evil empire is in Watts (USC).
    Don’t know if Stein is doing the matches this week. Believe they are still rotating people and it may be Sean Carney this week. Stein’s doing better. He said he was very intimidated with having to work with Leahey.
