    Rado having a great weekend…too bad, looks like Corey Chavers from UCSB will be POW…

    1. we’ll see. Two big wins for UCSB over BYU.

    1-2. Good question. Corey Shavers and Rado Parapunov scored the most points for their respective teams both nights. Corey Shaver scored 20 and 19 points and Rado Parapunov scored 19 and 14.5 points. However, Rado hit for a higher hitting percentage, 0.375 with 5 errors and then 0.588 with no errors tonight. Corey Shaver had six hitting errors each night, for 0.306 and 0.,312 hitting percentages. The main difference is that Corey Shaver helped his team upset BYU both times while UH was already higher ranked than Stanford – which may swing the POW in Corey’s favor. It would be nice if both of them could be co-players of the week.

    3. up to conference to vote. But they might want to share the love with Hawaii.
    BTW it’s Chavers, not Shaver.

    A big mahalo to our Brian McInnis for his help both nights in getting quotes for me and putting up photos and video on this blog. Welcome to the dark side, Brian, a new VB convert.

    Mahalo Brian, it looks to be that The force is w you. iiii … “the dark side.” VA’s gov is in trouble for his forgotten about yearbook pictures these uber sensitive pc days.

    Hawaii/Honolulu needs to keep themselves abreast these days. Package deals imho would be best.
    All six later this season:

    Warriors looking soooo good. They’ve gotten better every year to where post season play looks good. Gage is EVERYWHERE!

    DW from previous thread. Yes, you can use your cancelled Wahine tickets for one of the upcoming games. It’s a one for one where you can exchange your cancelled match ticket for the Men’s volleyball, men’s/women’s basketball or baseball. I used 2 of mine on Friday along with my $10 off voucher they give you with the season tickets. My three tickets cost me $4. ;o)

    In terms of the home games UH plays this season the schedule feels so dismal, disappointing and lackluster: no LBSU, BYU, Irvine, UCLA. But, maybe, the bright spot is the team will be able to test their game on the road against assumed stronger competition and help prepare them for NCAA post season games.

  9. Cindy Luis February 4, 2019 9:46 am

    New thread up for MOnday
    7. thanks
    8. it is what it is. the Big West schedule flops every other season. Beach and UCI were here last season.
    BYU is a home-and-home which is why Warriors are going there.
    probably the best BWC home matches will be UCSB
