Hawaii men’s volleyball: Lewis apologizes for broadcaster’s comments disparaging “Rainbow Warriors” nickname

By Brian McInnis on January 17, 2020

An exciting top-five men’s volleyball matchup between Hawaii and Lewis — eventually won in four sets by the No. 1 Rainbow Warriors — took an interesting turn between the first and second sets on Friday at Romeoville, Ill. With the Flyers taking a 1-0 set lead — the first set taken from UH all season — the Lewis student broadcasting team, apparently not realizing its microphones were still hot, went on a questionable tangent, led by the play-by-play man. He […]

Hawaii men’s volleyball: FINAL No. 1 UH 3, No. 5 Lewis 1

By Cindy Luis on January 17, 2020

Thank you Brian McInnis for taking over tonight while I had a commitment in California. Some major Trader Joe’s omiyage coming his way. Here’s the complete box. Close to 1,000 tonight in Carey Arena for the 20-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-23 UH win. Hawaii used 11 of the 15 on the travel roster. Colton Cowell misses the match with that injury suffered against Harvard (believe it’s a strained calf muscle). Warriors had trouble in serve-receive, gave up 9 aces to the […]

NCAA men’s volleyball: Hawaii athletic director David Matlin joins expanded selection committee

By Cindy Luis on January 16, 2020

Hawaii athletic director David Matlin has been added to an expanded NCAA men’s volleyball tournament selection committee. This is a good thing, expanding from three to five members. In 2018 when UC Irvine was chosen over Hawaii, the committee members were from UCLA, Ohio State and NJIT. The first two had conflicts of interest since their teams were under consideration. And the brackets that came out ended up favoring UCLA and Ohio State (IMHO). Back then the play-in match wasn’t […]

Hawaii men’s volleyball: Investigation into Charlie Wade over

By Cindy Luis on January 13, 2020

The following was reported in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s breaking news on Monday afternoon. Hawaii men’s volleyball coach Charlie Wade has been cleared by the U.S. Center for SafeSport after a 17-month investigation into a sexual misconduct allegations regarding an underage female player during his club coaching days in the 1990s. Wade’s name was removed from the USA Volleyball’s interim measure-suspension list over the weekend. His name was listed under “pending investigation” starting in September 2018 but, because no action was […]

Rainbow Forecast: Warrior volleyball hits the road; 2 basketball doubleheaders; Wahine tennis and water polo begin

By Brian McInnis on January 13, 2020

The top-ranked Hawaii men’s volleyball team certainly looked legitimate at home playing against unranked competition. How will the Rainbow Warriors fare on the road against some ranked foes? That’s one of the big questions in UH athletics this week — UH plays four straight on the mainland, starting with two this weekend — but there’s also a pair of basketball doubleheaders at the Stan Sheriff Center (Thursday and Saturday) to occupy your time. The Rainbow Warriors and Wahine hoops squads are […]
