Court Sense: Lower campus live blog March 16

By Brian McInnis on March 16, 2019

In terms of variety and quantity, it’s the day of days for Hawaii sports on the Manoa lower campus. Softball against Niagara and No. 4 Alabama. Baseball against Cal State Bakersfield. Water polo against the top-ranked team in the country, USC, that made some headlines lately (you might’ve heard about it). Men’s volleyball against Cal State Northridge. And beach volleyball just off campus at Queen’s Beach. And over in Southern California, the UH women’s basketball team playing UC Davis in […]

Hawaii baseball’s Carter Loewen poised to pounce on opportunity

By Billy Hull on March 16, 2019

After watching his team play its “worst game of the season” in his words, Hawaii baseball coach Mike Trapasso made it abundantly clear after Friday’s 8-4 loss to CSU Bakersfield that other pitchers are going to get an opportunity to throw more. “I’m not going to keep sending the same guys out there that are not throwing strikes,” Trapasso said after the ‘Bows allowed four runs — the margin of loss — to batters who either walked or were hit by a […]

Another crazy weekend ramps up tonight at the Manoa lower campus. There’s softball against No. 4 Alabama (6 p.m.), baseball against Cal State Bakersfield (6:35 p.m.), and the No. 2 UH men’s volleyball team taking on Cal State Northridge in Big West action (7 p.m.). Check out Jason Kaneshiro’s day-by-day guide here if you’re still trying to figure out what’s what. I’m here to help you keep track of the madness. (And also to tell you if the lower campus […]

Rainbow baseball toes line between lucky and good

By Billy Hull on March 15, 2019

On it’s own it’s an incredible statistic. Only 17 games into the 2019 season, the Hawaii baseball team has already won five games when trailing after seven innings. It’s a mark that shows an ability to play all nine innings, battle to the very end and never give up. Those traits are obviously important to being a good team, but as Hawaii coach Mike Trapasso wisely said after Thursday’s 7-4 win over Cal State Bakersfield, it’s also an unsustainable method […]

Court Sense: Lower campus live blog March 9

By Brian McInnis on March 9, 2019

The onslaught continues. If anything, it’s ramped up on Saturday. There’s the same trifecta of events going on at the Manoa lower campus — softball, baseball and men’s volleyball. But softball has a doubleheader today (Niagara and SIU-Edwardsville), baseball continues its four-game series against Oregon and volleyball hosts No. 6 Pepperdine to cap its three-day tournament. The UH women’s basketball team already won a big game at CSUN and the men’s team is looking to close the regular season with […]

Warrior Beat: Fogel likely to miss rest of season

By Stephen Tsai on March 9, 2019

The UH baseball team received more discouraging news when an MRI showed center fielder Adam Fogel suffered significant damage to his right (throwing) shoulder. Fogel suffered the injury during an eighth-inning slide a week ago. The hope was the injury was not too serious, and that he eventually would feel good enough to be used as a designated hitter, at the least. But the pain did not subside, and Friday’s MRI confirmed the worst-case scenario. It appears Fogel will need […]

Lots of action on campus this week

By Jason Kaneshiro on March 7, 2019

University of Hawaii fans could probably use a version of Disney’s “Park Hopper” pass to keep up with the action on the lower campus this week. The Rainbow Wahine softball team opened the on-campus action with an 11-2 win over St. Bonaventure on Wednesday to open the Outrigger Resorts Hawaii Spring Fling Tournament. The Wahine (13-4) take on California of the Pac-12 in the last of three games scheduled at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium on Thursday. The tournament runs through […]

Rainbow Warrior baseball: No short cuts

By Stephen Tsai on March 6, 2019

The late, great Ferd Borsch once noted that baseball, as a sport without a clock, could conceivably have a game that never ends. Well, we have a clock and we noticed that UH games involving video-review options take longer — much, much longer — than games without. According to our abacus and moon dial, the four games allowing reviews averaged 3 hours, 56 minutes. Games without the reviews averaged 3 hours, 14 minutes. There are some factors. The replay monitors […]
