    Polls are really meaningless at this early stage. There are so much games to be played to worry about the poll.

    UH just got to concentrate on getting better each set so when we get to the conference matches, we should be in sync and ready to roll.

    The picture is from 2 years ago, not last year.

    I miss those awesome jerseys.

    On the news of the Oregon transfer from Kamehameha…1st team all-state and should be good. But looks like she was out of a numbers game….two 2017 UA 1st team All-Americans played as freshman in the backcourt last year- Nuneviller had 580 digs and earned various honors, while I assume Tastad (204 digs) was the DS. Plus they got a 2018 UA 1st team All-American from a Texas HS coming in next year!
