By Brian McInnis on January 12, 2019

Two areas in particular have been season-long concerns for the Hawaii women’s basketball team. Excessive fouls committed (nearly 20 per game) and excessive turnovers (16.8).

Their nine turnovers were a season low, as were their 12 fouls. UH (5-10, 1-1 BWC) also won the rebounding battle by nine, as it was bolstered by eight […]

After a few viewings up close this season, this is what this non-volleyball writer and casual follower of the sport has concluded: The fourth-ranked […]
