    I’m a little surprised Emma Smith has not broken into the pairs. She came with a lot more beach accolades than Iosia. I mean, Norene is an exceptional talent so not totally surprised. But just a little that Smith isn’t out there. Maybe chemistry?

  2. warriorfan March 18, 2017 2:53 pm

    I am just super surprised at the beach pairings, where did Ozee and Huddleston go? they won against Zona the first weekend of the season and now UH lost at 5 to them.. I don’t get it, but I guess the coaches know best.

  3. Kalihifc March 18, 2017 3:14 pm

    Ozee and Huddleston, sometimes together and other times with different partners, have played in the sixes. Today, the former played with Anderson (I think), and the latter played with Higgins (!) in Shinn’s jersey. I have not yet seen Smith play a competitive match. Sydney squared played Florida State in the exhibition (instead of a Nebraska pair).

  4. warriorfan March 18, 2017 3:17 pm

    UH warriors passing and blocking and defense is just so bad right now and Jennings is being predictable.

  5. warriorfan March 18, 2017 3:19 pm

    welp, UH looks even worst than last night, they don’t even look top 10 now 🙁

  6. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:21 pm

    Warriors not looking real good today. And Grosh’s serving keeps giving them problems.
    Cougars were up 16-8, not its 19-12.
    Matautia in for Fey.

  7. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:24 pm

    As for Smith, the last two weeks the indoor players were mostly doing Indoor and that’s where she’s been. have mentioned that they are limited in practice time per week, regardless if it’s one sport or two.
    Maglio has ‘volunteered’ to come to several beach practices and is used to the grind.

  8. Kalihifc March 18, 2017 3:26 pm

    There was visible frustration in the fives during the Arizona dual, so I wonder if there will be some shuffling.

    Homayun is my fave player. She’s a fighter, trying to get every call.

  9. warriorfan March 18, 2017 3:27 pm

    I would guess Emma is redshirting in beach? Makes sense. Kind of wish they redshirted Ozee also.

  10. warriorfan March 18, 2017 3:28 pm

    8. Try Iosia/Ozee?

  11. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:30 pm

    Very odd timeout by UH IMHO. BYU serving for the set at 24-19

  12. Kauaiboy March 18, 2017 3:33 pm

    Hawaii’s serving needs to put more pressure on BYU or else this is gonna be another long night for the Warriors. SCAREY that BYU is playing without its best player and still beating the crap out of Hawaii. I really felt Hawaii was in the same tier as LBSU, BYU and Ohio St. but not after the last 3 sets ☚ī¸.

  13. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:33 pm

    BYU wins 25-19.

    Smith might be redshirting, haven’t heard that.

  14. warriorfan March 18, 2017 3:35 pm

    UH outhit BYU but is doing poor in everything else.

  15. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:36 pm

    Matautia in for Fey to start Set 2.

  16. blunite March 18, 2017 3:39 pm

    Emma is sorely needed on the indoor team. Her passing makes Iosia’s sets (and the offense) so much better. Additionally, in light of Hall’s statement that UH passing was horrendous against Minnesota one can imagine what would have happened without Emma.

  17. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:39 pm

    Mol aces Sander, UH up 6-3. TO BYU

  18. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:41 pm

    16. not sure what you’re saying. She is on the indoor team. and is concentrating on that. they have another indoor exhibition on Tuesday.

  19. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:45 pm

    At Queen’s, FSU 4-1 over Nebraska

  20. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 3:56 pm

    UH was up 19-14 but BYU has rallied to 19-17. TO Warriors.

  21. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:02 pm

    The errors late in this set are comical for UH. Yikes

  22. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:02 pm

    Worsley mangles a free ball, Jennings sets a fallen Matuatia. Ugh frustrating.

  23. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 4:03 pm

    This will be demoralizing. Hawaii led 23-21. BYU has tied it at 23. TO Warriors.

  24. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:04 pm

    Gasman is playing like a freshmen this series.

  25. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 4:05 pm

    Warriors hitting .435 but BYU .565. Cougars serving for the set at 24-23

  26. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:06 pm

    terrible choke job that set and I have to blame Jennings, his set location late was just bad. He needs to be more offensive also.

  27. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 4:06 pm

    Gasman 2-1-5 but he is slow on the block.
    BYU wins 25-23 on Matautia’s error.

  28. Eric96822 March 18, 2017 4:08 pm

    That was very upsetting. If we don’t end up winning this match after that goof up, I am debating on moving on to cheering for another UH sport. That was just ridiculous.

  29. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:11 pm

    Extremely upsetting, that may have been the match sad to say. Hope I am wrong.

  30. Kauaiboy March 18, 2017 4:13 pm

    Complete meltdown, the poor play by Worsley and Austin tripping costed Hawaii that set… Oh along with Gasmans whiff and Jennings dump on two… Just pure decision making from point 22 on… It’s a shame because they played well for 3/4ths of the set…

  31. Big Island VB Fan March 18, 2017 4:14 pm

    28. You’re right. They shot themselves in the feet. Since I can’t watch UH live anyway, it’s hard for me to be a diehard fan. At least I can watch BYU matches live. Blame OC sports for blanking out anyone in Hawaii who doesn’t have cable or can’t have it any. This upsets me far more than Hawaii losing to BYU.

  32. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:15 pm

    Think it started with them over arguing that call , they should have let that go and move on quickly, instead they make mental error after mental error to basically give that set away. I want to see Rado play in set 3. Austin makes too many errors.

  33. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:22 pm

    Take that back Austin’s playing well, Just too bad he fell to help BYU get the 24th point and then hit out on set point in set 2. Sitll think this team needs to utilize Rado more.

  34. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:26 pm

    Jeez the warrior block is non existent.

  35. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:31 pm

    BYU is good but Hawaii just did not show up. No block, Fey struggled big time, when he was good the past month. Jennings also struggled this weekend. Now they need to finish 5-0 ( including quarterfinal match of MPSF tourney) to even have a chance at the at large and those two matches at UCLA will be tough.

    They really laid an egg this weekend in Provo AGAIN.

  36. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:33 pm

    Going 0-4 at BYU and Long beach is a bitter pill to swallow, we need to sweep UCLA ( or at the least split and then make the MPSF tourney finals) , and HOPE that OSU wins the MIVA tournament.

  37. Eric96822 March 18, 2017 4:33 pm

    I dunno why Rado isn’t put in to be the 2nd Leftside. Just to try that out. We need a big block on the Right side blocking their Opposite. And a lefty playing on that side may even throw off the opposing teams block for a change.

  38. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:35 pm

    37. Basically feel it’s a wasted year for Rado, Wade will really regret not redshirting him when Rado is a senior. All he is being used for as a serving sub?? come on.

  39. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:40 pm

    Wow never say never for this team, hope they pull this off somehow.

  40. Kalihifc March 18, 2017 4:43 pm

    Annie’s playing in the sixth.

  41. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:45 pm

    Man Uh can’t buy a block, BYU is covering everything ugh.

  42. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 4:50 pm

    feel like we’ve been here before UH up 23-22. BYU at math point 24-23

  43. warriorfan March 18, 2017 4:51 pm

    UH’s block is soo poor, thought we were the top blocking team in the nation Ugh.

  44. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 4:53 pm

    BYU wins 28-26

  45. blunite March 18, 2017 4:56 pm

    RE: #16


    What I was trying to say is that the Indoor team needs Emma much more than the Sandbows. Considering that they all have coursework to do, concentration in one discipline may be the best course (if she wants to graduate on time).

    RE: Warriors

    BYU is a bit better. Ditto Long Beach State. Viewed in regard to the competition, Hawaii is probably ranked appropriately. Appears Worsley will have to wait until next year to speed up the offense.

  46. Eric96822 March 18, 2017 4:57 pm

    Well, I actually like the fight we put up in the end instead of fading away, even though we got swept. So I’ll stick with this team still. 😉
    BUT next time on the neutral court in the MPSF tourney or NCAAs (hopefully we make it), we better pay back!

  47. warriorfan March 18, 2017 5:02 pm

    OK that was disappointing. Laid an egg in Provo yet again. no wins for Wade at provo ever lol If we never play at Provo again I will be okay with that lol

    UH needs to sweep UCLA. No question. and we have to hope Ohio state wins the Miva tournament and that UCI fades late, UCI has wins over OSU and BYU that UH does not, and I could see the committee picking them OVER UH if UH falters at UCLA and UCI makes the MPSF finals.

  48. warriorfan March 18, 2017 5:03 pm

    Another thing, two years ago UH completely fell apart after losing two in provo, hope that does not happen this year. They need to regroup and get their confidence back.

  49. Kauaiboy March 18, 2017 5:06 pm

    BYU always seems to find a way to pull out the close sets, in this series Hawaii seemed to blow it or not be able to close it out. Happy Hawaii made it super competitive at the end however everyone knew Stijn was getting every swing and it was only time before BYU blocked him for point. We need another solid option at OH to hold the middle from the opposing team to create more split blocks.. Hawaii is a solid top 8 team with this lineup but I feel we are lacking at the OH position thus not being able to beat the top 3 teams…

  50. warriorfan March 18, 2017 5:09 pm

    49. why do you think I am advocating for Rado joining the lineup?? And I still think it’s a mistake for Wade not to force the Rado/Stijn lineup to work, we have them for two more years, it needs to work and I think it will, it’s only a matter of time but it had to be forced early in the season and now it’s too late.

  51. warriorfan March 18, 2017 5:12 pm

    It was a mistake to give up on that lineup after the Long Beach Series, UH took long beach to five, which is probably the best they have played against a top 4 team in a while and yet they still gave up on that lineup right away.

  52. WarriorJoshSeaverBlaase March 18, 2017 5:36 pm

    Wade needs to be fired. When you face a team with equal or better talent than you it comes down to coaching, and Wade is really lacking in that. BYU didn’t even have Patch or their top middle. And the MPSF tournament semifinals will be at BYU or Long Beach, Hawaii is 0-4 at both of those teams. 2-12 in sets, including losing 12 straight sets to both those teams. Also Fey is horrible and UH always chokes in big matches.

  53. blunite March 18, 2017 6:02 pm

    RE: #50

    Outside of a faster offense, Wade probably has no choice but to re-visit Rado at Opposite. If Stijn (at OH) does not pass well maybe break conventional wisdom and have the Opposite on serve receive (Rado at OH). (Nobody wants to go 2 on serve receive.)

  54. warriorfan March 18, 2017 6:15 pm

    52. I think Stijn can pass though, he just struggled with Defalco’s serve, but he’s probably the best server in the MPSF.

    UH must go 5-0 to the MPSF semis, to get the at large , and hopefully UCI will lose a few down the road that they shouldn’t.

  55. warriorfan March 18, 2017 6:18 pm

    Man I just knew that first match at Long Beach that UH blew would come back to haunt them.

  56. warriorfan March 18, 2017 6:25 pm

    We need Stanford or Pepperdine to come through with a win against UCI, also will help if Lewis loses to Ball State or Loyola and of course Ohio State needs to win the MIVA tournament.

  57. Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 6:34 pm

    52. seriously? UH now 3-25 in Provo. not like Wade the only coach to lose there.

    16 When Coach Santos comes in hopefully all positions will be up for grabs. I think Iosia and Mags is set already.

  60. haleiwacrossfitter March 18, 2017 10:35 pm

    I also agree that they should not have given up on that lineup with Rado and Stijn on the court at the same time. We had time to get that lineup up build chemistry. Oh well, I was hoping for some changes in set 3. This is the part of Shoji’s coaching that made him a master at his craft. He would try different things and shake things up. Hence, the McKenna Ross lineup against Arizona. He is a master in game adjuster. When you lose the first two games, you have nothing to lose at that point. Try something different when all that depth is on that bench.

  61. rabbit ears March 19, 2017 11:06 am

    59- what?

  62. islandman March 19, 2017 1:06 pm

    60, He tried something different, he put Matautia in from set 2 and Solbrig in set 3.

  63. Cindy Luis March 20, 2017 9:33 am
    new thread up for Monday

    59. I’m sure all players will be evaluated during fall camp. Ah Mow-Santos is familiar with much of the team but not those who were freshmen last season nor the incoming recruits, at least in terms of working with them in the gym.
