congrats to Zarkovic, national POW

Interesting since he wasn’t the MPSF’s POW, Sam Holt from CSUN was.

From the AVCA:

Sinisa Zarkovic, a 6-4 sophomore outside hitter for No. 9 University of Hawaii, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Men’s Division I-II National Player of the Week. It was a huge weekend for the Rainbow Warriors, defeating then-No. 2 BYU twice last weekend to enter into a three-way tie for sixth place in the MPSF standings.  The first match of the home series was a roller coaster with BYU taking the first two sets before Hawaii stormed back. With the Cougars on match point to go for the sweep, Zarkovic pounded a kill to tie up the third set as they went on to win the final three and the match. After a 12-kill, three-dig and three-block performance, Zarkovic had a career match the following day.  He notched his second career 20-plus kill match with 22 while hitting at a .410 clip with five digs and four blocks. That second match was played in front of the largest crowd of the season of 4,493 on senior night.

This is the 19th time in program history a Hawai’i student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/Player of the Week honors. The most recent Hawai’i recipient of the award is Brook Sedore, who won it on March 4th earlier this year.  The Rainbow Warriors are coached by Charlie Wade.

    How does a player that isn’t the MPSF’s POW become the national POW?

    Congrats to zarcovic! He played lights out against byu and was the best player on the court from either side IMO.

    Well Deserved !! congrats Siki!!

    I still say it’s a close deal for Hawaii. Zarkovic though not player of the week (POW), they’ll have to work harder to keep themselves in the hunt. Two at Pepperdine would put them really close to 8th or 7th seed. Otherwise, just 2 more games to go, then it’s next season and rebuilding year again. Without Kolby Kanetake, as I think some already have speculated to be a suspect playing with the MPSF. New players next year!

    Kolby played lights out this weekend. Had some spectacular plays on both nights. In fact the play of the Warriors this weekend may have been the best in years.

    Congratulations, and thank you, Siki!

    awesome news for Siki and totally unexpected but definitely well deserved shame on the MPSF.

    could be that the MPSF voter(s) viewed CSUN wins greater than Hawaii’s, but the other non-MPSF voter(s) viewed Hawaii’s as greater. I say that not even knowing how many vote or if its just an SID making a selection.

    congrats to Siki !!

    Where is Kanetake going?

  12. Brandon April 8, 2014 8:40 pm

    11. I’m wondering the same thing

  13. FormerlyWarriorfan April 8, 2014 9:45 pm

    I am pretty sure Tiki808 is that cluless poster with a dozen other screen names that posts nothing but groundless gibberish!

  14. Cindy Luis April 8, 2014 9:59 pm

    13. not the same person. have stopped trying to explain things to someone who makes no sense.
    Kanetake isn’t leaving.

    Who’s to say that we’re not one of the same..YOU and ur varying internet monikers (as well)?? 😉

    Biff/Tiff da chip off the ol’ block is very much into wrong word choices also.

    Warriorfan is all in the Kailua ohana, hah?!
    Volley Shots (da narcissism within) CAN’T exclude everyone, forever, just watch and see.

    A hui hou. Have a day filled with aloha.

    Try to enjoy the fun in the sun! …as it’s only 7am ur time.

    You are the one with the nerve and continued rudeness with emoticons which don’t soften the mean-spirited posts
    I have just one user name, this one, and it is also the one I use the rare times I go to VT.
    I believe my son also only has one user name on this blog. His name is Tiff, not Biff, as I have told you numerous times.
    As moderator, I can track who is who and their multiple personalities.
    No one is excluded unless they have crossed the line in terms of libel, personal attacks, vulgarity … everything I have posted ad nauseam as the rules for posting.
    have no idea who Warriorfan is or where he/she lives.
    I have cleared your comment for posting, which was stuck in a moderator’s folder for some reason, despite yet another user name with yet another subtle dig at me.

    Recommend 15. create and manage his or her own site/blog.

    Think the U of H men’s team is getting better and maybe peaking at the right time, VBs version of the UConn MBB team, hope the warriors earn a play off berth.

    Way to go Siki!

  19. Hot April 10, 2014 6:36 am

    5. Tiki808, I don’t understand your post.

    “Zarkovic though not player of the week (POW)” – isn’t he the player of the week?

    “Otherwise, just 2 more games to go, then it’s next season and rebuilding year again. Without Kolby Kanetake, as I think some already have speculated to be a suspect playing with the MPSF. ” – what does this mean? Why is Kanetake a suspect?!

  20. Cindy Luis April 10, 2014 7:33 am

    19. sorry hot but deleted your last post. trying to have no name calling here.
    But agree, doesn’t make sense. not the first time.
