Friday scores & schedule, for SandBows
Hawaii advances to Saturday’s semifinal vs. winner of today’s loser-out match vs. FIU & FSU. Saturday’s second semi is Pepperdine vs. today’s late winner between USC-Stetson
Hawaii def. FIU, 4-1
Hawaii def. USC 3-2
11 a.m. HST FIU vs. USC (loser out)
other side of the bracket
FSU def. Stetson, 5-0
Pepperdine def. FSU, 4-1
Noon HST Stetson vs. FSU (loser out)
WHAT? UH might have to face USC in the semis?
Cindy one of UH Facebook’s page has them facing the winner of FIU/FSU.
I thought the USC/FIU winner would face Pepperdine
Oh this is confusing
The AVCA bracket they put out would have winner of FIU vs FSU play against Hawai’i for a championship spot. Is that wrong?
Yea even USC’s twitter has them playing pepperdine if they beat Stetson, Cindy?
5. You’re right.
Fiu vs hawaii was game 1
Stenson vs fsu was game 2
Uh vs usc was game 3
Pepp vs fsu was game 4
Losers of game 4 and 1, play each other
Losers of game 3 and 2 play eachother.
the way I read the bracket there was no crossover. I could be wrong. it is confusing
Is tomorrow double elimination as well? kind of unfair if it isn’t, USC IMO should be out of it completely already.
10. Agreed. It won’t be fair. All the teams that lost today or yesterday still have a chance, but if UH or Pepp lose, they’re out for good.
It should be UH vs Pepperdine for the championship already! both 2-0 .
Double elimination until Final Four. Sudden death after that.
13. that IMO is dumb, of course I wouldn’t mind that had UH lost today.
It’s a double-eliminaiton event
so let’s look at the bracket
Match 1 #4 Hawai’i v. #5 Florida International. UH wins
Match 2 #3 Florida State v. #6 Stetson, FSU wins
noon #1 USC v. Hawaii, UH wins
1 p.m. #2 Pepperdine v. Winner #3/#6 Pepperdine def. FSU
Match 5 Loser #4/#5 (FIU) v. Loser of 1:00 p.m. match. FIU vs. FSU
Match 6 Loser #3/#6 (Stetson) v. Loser of 12:00 p.m. match Stetson vs. USC
Saturday, May 3
11:00 a.m. Semi-Final #1
12:00 p.m. Semi-Final #2
3:30 p.m. Championship Match
If they do face USC again in the semis at least USC will have to beat UH twice in order to advance since it is double elimination.
is it double elimination tomorrow or lose and your done??
15. You’re not the only one, Cin.
6. thank you for the updated bracket.
Hawaii will play winner of FSU-FIU Saturday
Pepperdine plays winner of USC-Stetson
HI plays winner of FSU-FIU tomorrow
Pepp plays winner of USC-Stet tomorrow
from the looks of the bracket, it is NOT a true double elimination tournament in that if automatic semifinal spot winners Hawaii or Pepperdine lose tomorrow, there is no rematch with the same team (have to lose 2x) to be out. Tomorrow is single elimination semifinals and finals, as far as I can see- don’t see any conditionals on tomorrows bracket.
Clip of Cook/Tiegs winning against USC
16/Andrew. Hawaii won’t face USC again unless they meet in the finals. And it’s sudden death from the final 4 on so USC doesn’t have to be UH twice.
17/formerlywarriorfan. Tomorrow is the final 4 — lose and you’re out. No double elimination tomorrow.
gotta go 2-0 again tomorrow, hope that cooks win two trophies tomorrow, hate loyola.
I hope they change that format when they switch over to being an NCAA sport. Having a double elim first round/second round but then a single elim semi doesn’t make sense.
hear hear, I hope they will change it and expand to more teams.
The sudden death Final Four is the format that the AVP uses (as did the FIVB when there was no Pool Play). There is never a chance of a double final in the AVP.
every team knows how they must qualify to get to nationals…and every team knows what happens when they get there…if hawaii just takes care of business like we all know they can…no prob…so far they have taken care of business or… lose early???…just win every match !!! it is what it is…go sandbows go !!!
So tomorrows match against FIU or FSU will be at 6 am hawaii time.
Gotta be another early morning for me.
28. i believe u r correct…at least not as early as 2day…dats on da bright side…if dat a bright side???…lol
FSU wins and play the wahine tomorrow 11 am CT
Gonna be a tough match against fsu, but the wahine can do it. Just gotta play hard.
not as tough as it would have been against Pepperdine, Wahine can do it.
GO SANDBOWS!!! Way to step on the courts today and play YOUR game!! You ladies ROCK!!
USC beats Stetson and will face Pepperdine tomorrow
Anyone think there might be a stream of tomorrow? or livestats?
Thanks again for all the help Touney will be expanded as early as next year NCAA should be taking it over by 2016
I expect stanford to start building a good beach team. Stanford itself is a draw for students and if they can get kerri to coach, they should be even more set.
Kerri won’t be there until after Rio in 2016 (if at all). She has her family in Southern Cal. Pretty sure if she wanted to coach, any school would take her.
37. uh okay that came out of nowhere. Kerri won’t give up her endorsement money and playing career to coach the stanford beach team, not for 5-6 years at least.
Anyway out of all the teams in the final four, UH is the youngest, only losing Cook and maybe Ali Longo 🙁
39. Cindy was talking about expanding, and how the ncaa will take it over. So I was saying the possible teams that could be good.
I fully expect the top teams in the west to continue to remain to be Pepp, USC and UH with UCLA joining them in elite status soon (they are getting a ton of talent in the next few years)
Long beach will be alright but not as good as those four.
41…agreed…zana muno for 1
41. aggreed…zana muno (notre dame hs, so cal) for 1 to ucla this coming yr or the next…ck out sklar caputo (mira costa hs, so ca) standout… to pepperdine also in the next couple yrs…
Post match interviews
thanks. was speaking with Wong and was going to get to the link after.
Will be an exciting championship weekend. Good luck sand bows. Hopefully 3rd time’s the charm against Pepperdine.
I feel like the men’s final was played yesterday. Loyola is no doubt a good team. They’ve got an experienced team having a tremendous season. But if they win tomorrow – and it’s certainly possible since they’ve got “home” court advantage – they would’ve only had to play one MPSF team, and incidentally, only one team ranked in the top 10.
If the Wahine win the overall title, I hope there will be a special ceremony to recognize them, don’t you agree?
45. Do you mean in the tournament or their overall season?
Highlights from today
Dang that hit by Ginger Long was impressive!
Yep, so was Olivia’s big hit.
Hawaii vs. Florida State Line-Up
Ct.1: Tiegs/Cook vs. Pardon Davis
Ct.2: Taylor/Spieler vs. Pellitteris
Ct.3: Long/Longo vs. Wickstrom/Yildirim
Ct.4: Chow/Urban vs. Brown Pavels
Ct.5: Riggs/Tucker vs. Sanchez/Luke
I am pretty shocked that Jackaon/Johnson from Long Beach are out already in pool play for the individual pairing championship.
Does anyone know when they announce the All Americans?
Darn UH trailing in most of the matches early.
53. I think it’s just before the championship game.
Not looking good early, come on wahine.
Britt/Karissa only UH pair to win the first set. Really need Spieler/Taylor to step it up and win set 2 and 3, and same with Ginger/Aly.
cook/tiegs win set 1, but all other wahine team lost the first set and will now have to battle and come from behind ….
c’mon sand bows !!
okay better starts in sets 2, come on ladies keep it up!
warriorfan — where are you following the live action? i’ve only found avca twitter…
yes! Chow/Urban and Riggs/Tucker win second sets, way to go, now we are cooking.
Long/Longo about to lose though 🙁
Damn longo/Long did lose and Uh is now trailing 1-0
60. FSU twitter.
60 – also @FSU_SVB
fSU leads match 1-0
Yes Nikki and katie come through, now lets take all these third sets!!
yikes avca twitter was wrong nikki and katie lost, damn it.
67 – per Uh and FSU twitter, spieler/Taylor lost set 2 19-21
FSU leads dual 2-0, need 1 more win to take match
not looking good folks, FSU up big in third set on Chow/Urban 🙁
FSU wins court 5 on a service ace to take dual match 3-0 over Hawai’i
looks like chow/urban lost in the 3rd set.
congrats to FSU, for advancing to the finals.
great season and effort by the wahine! just came up short today. props to all the teams for battling hard though!
i second da motion 73
shoots, at least they made the final four.
I now see Pepp/USC winning it all.
Hoping Tiegs/Cook can win the individual championship tomorrow.
Dang Tiegs/Cook barely lost in 3.
It’s too bad UH got off to such a bad start, they could have easily won this.
On to next season sand bows, UH was the youngest team in the final four with only one senior. Along with a great incoming recruiting class, there is no reason to think UH will be back in the final four next season and maybe even be the favorites.
Looks like Pepp will probably breeze thru to their second title in 3 years.
And realistically Pepp would have easily won last year as well if it wasn’t for some injuries.
See new thread on 4-1 loss.
Pepperdine’s one loss this year was to USC.
Don’t know if they would have easily won last year. but everyone was surprised that the Waves didn’t bring at least one extra player last year to the nationals. they lost the title when having to concede the match due to an injury forfeit.
Pepperdine edges USC 3-2
How rude not allowing an opinion. Truth hurts
83. no idea what you’re talking about
