Best to discuss on new thread rather than wade through last night’s game stuff.
And to get this out of the way first … the amount of crude comments and personal attacks last night were inexcusable. I apologize that some of the comments got left up until I could get to them and delete. I understand the frustration but the lack of civility will not be tolerated.
As mentioned, The beach has pretty much clinched the title at 10-0. UH at 8-3.
49ers 2 1/2 up over the Wahine with 6 to play (for them). Hawaii has five with tonight’s match against CSUN.
IMHO, Hawaii needs to win out to get an at-large, At the moment, they only thing they can control is on the court, wins and losses.
People have criticized the setting. Agree that Higgins might have gone to the outsides too many times but it’s a split-second decision. The Beach was very quick to move to the middle. and there several times that the OHs had wide open looks and hit long or wide. Also saw how many tight passes there were to the net. Higgins 5-0-10 on dump shots, several because she had no choice.
Mendoza likely back at libero to start tonight.
As some have said, not only is Jackson the best libero in the conference, she could be the best in the country.
Some people thought the 49ers setter was great. I thought it lucky that she wasn’t called for more lifts. The up ref was very generous and completely missed some calls, one that was clearly a double but that was my vantage point from floor level and not her vantage point from above the play.
Going to be a tough turn around after a very disappointing loss. the schedule maker was very unkind this season.
