    Hi Cindy, sounds like the warriors are clicking on all cylinders! Question, radio mentioned that this is exhibition, which I knew, but also mentioned that any stats don’t count, so does that mean win or loose, it won’t factor into win-loss as in terms of going to finals at the end of the season?

  4. Big Island Volleyball Fan January 4, 2019 7:45 pm

    I checked the schedules of both the men’s and women’s college volleyball teams. Unlike the NCAA, their seasons run parallel from October to March the following year, about five months total.

  5. Lori January 4, 2019 7:58 pm

    Bachi on Cowell. He just made two errors.

  6. Cindy Luis January 4, 2019 8:11 pm

    3. Stats do not count nor in the W-L record

  7. Cindy Luis January 4, 2019 8:13 pm

    5. wasn’t bachi. just mentioned his stats.

  8. Savich January 4, 2019 9:50 pm

    They have a returning player again. The league will have to watch out for. Kyle Ensing, 6-7. Long Beach State 49ners. If Hawai’i can stop him, it will be a duzzy. He wants another title. He’s good. He will stop at no cost.

    Warriors played really well for a opening match against a team in the middle of their season. Bows are athletic, tall and talented. Worsley brothers bring something extra when together on the court. Colton is explosive and his serves in set three were bombs. Gasman and Rosie played well too. These guys are worth the price of admission and then some.

    Excited about this teams potential and with us hosting the Big west tournament, im VERY confident that we can make the NCAA this year. And if we GEL right, possibly win it all. GO BOWS

    Go Bows! Great start to season! A lot of potential for this team. The chemistry is there.

    Great to see Mags back in the Stan! Heard she could have had pro opportunities indoors but chose to come back.

  12. islandman January 5, 2019 10:58 am

    11. Several other teams are also explosive, tall and talented, just like last season.

  13. islandman January 5, 2019 11:05 am

    Matlin said yesterday that UH sold the most season tickets in 10 years for men’s vb.

  14. Savich January 5, 2019 4:27 pm

    Only 3,079 tickets sold. Let’s see how much is it tonight?
