    Long Beach State holds on for a 15-25, 25-19, 26-24, 14-25, 25-8 win over Princeton.
    Wahine starting same lineup in Iosia, Liva, Williams, Castillo, Granato, Akiu and Ma’afala.

  2. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:14 pm

    Idaho was down 3-1, went on a 6-0 run to go up 7-3. Gaskin hits long, it’s 11-5. TO UH

  3. ballerz September 6, 2018 7:18 pm

    cold start and looking for a spark.

  4. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:20 pm

    Don’t be surprised if you see Burns in . Wahine having a bit of trouble with the quick arm swings of Idaho middles. Ma’afala with the ace. Wahine close to 14-11. TO Idaho.

  5. vbfan4life September 6, 2018 7:26 pm

    is TV down? only see encore of UH men vs LBSU

  6. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:28 pm

    Cover dig by Iosia keeps play alive after Gaskin is blocked on very tight set. UH with the block. Up 19-17. TO Idaho.

  7. ballerz September 6, 2018 7:31 pm

    castillo and granato are warming up

  8. Big Island-Cal Poly volleyball fan September 6, 2018 7:32 pm

    I finally got back from the Cal Poly match vs. UCLA at Mott Gym. What a win! However, they were shaky in the second set and did not communicate well. Otherwise, great match with lots of spectacular digs on both sides. Each team averaged over 18 digs per set. Got to meet the van Winden sisters, one before the match and one after. Before the match Torrey told me she felt confident they could beat the Bruins so her prediction came through. She had the most kills and Adlee the most digs. They sure were a dynamic duo. UCLA had a lot of newcomers so they were a bit out of synch. I don’t know whether Cal Poly could beat them twice in a row but I’ll be there tomorrow to watch in person.

  9. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:33 pm

    Ace by Ma’afala ends it 25-21. Great line shot by Granato gave them set point.

  10. Z September 6, 2018 7:35 pm

    We have Granato and our serving is giving them problems.

  11. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:37 pm

    5. are you on the right channel? 16/1016

  12. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 7:37 pm

    5. thats because spectrum turned wahine volleyball onto oc16 channel 15/1015 to be included with the high school sports.

  13. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:38 pm

    Granato 8-0-11 in set 1

  14. vbfan4life September 6, 2018 7:44 pm

    i am on the mainland trying to watch it on bigwest link

  15. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:48 pm

    two more UH service errors have helped Idaho maintain the lead at 15-11 at the TTO.

  16. z September 6, 2018 7:50 pm

    Our serving went south.

  17. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 7:50 pm

    i wonder why the bigwest link is blocked on the island when you dont have tv.

  18. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:53 pm

    Vandals up 19-13. TO UH

  19. HawaiiMongoose September 6, 2018 7:54 pm

    We’re looking awfully ordinary.

  20. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:56 pm

    Burns in at 20-15. UH challenging whether Idaho’s hit was out.
    Call overturned. It’s 20-16.

  21. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 7:58 pm

    Two quick kills by Burns. UH closes to 20-18. TO Idaho.

  22. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 7:59 pm

    yeah bring the burns!

  23. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 8:06 pm

    Idaho takes Set 2 25-23. UH had tied it at 23 on Iosia’s ace.

  24. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 8:07 pm

    aint that some bull. wahine wake up!

  25. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 8:07 pm

    17. nothing has changed. if you are in Hawaii, spectrum has the rights. BigWestTV only available to viewers on the mainland.

  26. Big Island volleyball fan in SLO, CA September 6, 2018 8:09 pm

    14. I am able to watch this match from San Luis Obispo, so the mainland online link works. Take heart and try again.

  27. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 8:16 pm

    UH with a block and it’s 8-3. TO Idaho

  28. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 8:20 pm

    At 9-5, Granato hits long. Wahine screaming for touch. UH challenging it. Call overturned. it’s 10-5

  29. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 8:25 pm

  35. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 9:07 pm

    Hawaii wins 25-22.

  36. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 9:08 pm

    wahine made it difficult to be difficult to defeat the bows.

  37. H-Man September 6, 2018 9:10 pm

    I’m watching the telecast with the audio – off. Much better
    And the Wahine win this one – with Burns and others like Ross. Good mix/changes by coach. Good team win. Granato was outstanding I thought.

  38. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 9:11 pm

    tomorrow portland would probably be scarier given how na wahine are this match and that the opponent is unbeaten.

  39. HawaiiMongoose September 6, 2018 9:12 pm

    Good match for Granato. Burns made a huge difference and Gaskin showed some glimpses of what she’s capable of. I’m puzzled by Castillo’s lack of productivity, despite her height and experience she’s just not putting the ball down.

  40. blunite September 6, 2018 9:15 pm

    Akiu was human tonight; fortunately, they still got the win. The middles put on a show (when the passing was on point).

  41. z September 6, 2018 9:15 pm

    Another nice night for Granato. Good to see Burns having a good night too. Good win.

  42. Cindy Luis September 6, 2018 10:02 pm

    44. Akiu had 22 digs. got aced twice in 27 receptions and when passing 70 percent of the court.

  43. Rabbit ears September 6, 2018 10:17 pm

    Akiu is really good. Great range, digis that are perfect passes. Couple times she missed balls that should could have been dug by teammates. But being a court hog is not a bad thing for a Libero.

  44. warriorwahine September 6, 2018 11:04 pm

    relic of tonights match


  45. Sharene September 6, 2018 11:36 pm

    I am late to the discussion so please forgive me if this has been discussed. Does anyone know why UH called T0 so EARLY in the game and they were winning?

    Cindy, I appreciate your tenacity and dedication for giving the Wahine so much support and sharing the best with us.

  46. Crazy4WVB September 6, 2018 11:44 pm

    Does anyone know if there’s a way to stream the post game interview? I have Hawaiian Telcom

  47. Savich September 7, 2018 6:17 am

    So. There was other news last night. Both Hurricane Norman & Olivia coming. Just off the North of Hawai’i is Norman. 300 something miles.

  48. Savich September 7, 2018 6:30 am

    Wahines win. Congrats. Maybe I’ll pick it up on reruns. Cable tv spectrum.

    Future Wahine opponent, the Oregon Ducks, took set 1 from Minnesota 25-23. And Baylor leads Wisconsin 2-1.

  51. H-Man September 7, 2018 3:14 pm

    Oregon up on #1 Minnesota 2-0 and Baylor defeats #2 Wisconsin 3-1.

  52. turfwar September 7, 2018 4:27 pm

    Yup. Oregon beat #1 Minnesota in 4 but the sad part is junior Taylor Borup the 6’4 OH transfer from NC never got off the bench. She would have really helped here.

  53. Cindy Luis September 7, 2018 4:34 pm

    new thread up
    posting Top 25 scores on new thread in a bit.
    As for Borup she likely would have but no use speculating.
    someone asked earlier about the early timeout. Think there was confusion over whether Akiu was supposed to be in (she was as the server) and she was late on the court. rather than have a delay of game penalty they took the TO.
