    Only a handful of preseason tournaments featured a majority of participating teams chosen to win their conference crown this year.

    The Nike Big Four Classic (which I think is being discontinued in its present form) showcased Texas, Penn State, Stanford, and Florida — all tabbed to take the conference title in their respective preseason poll of coaches.

    The Shocker Volleyball Classic is another — perhaps the only other — to showcase a majority of preseason conference title favorites.

    Hawai’i — #1 in the Preseason Poll of Big West Coaches.

    Wichita St. — #1 in the Preseason Poll of Missouri Valley Coaches.

    Creighton — #1 in the Preseason Poll of Big East Coaches.

    While South Dakota was chosen #4 (of 8 teams) in the Preseason Poll of Summit League Coaches, it is the only Summit League team presently playing over .500 and is the team Shoji believes should win its conference.

    Time to walk the walk. But this walk — unlike that which will be gifted to Penn State in the NCAA Championship 1st, 2nd, and probably 3rd round bracket — will not be a cakewalk.

    Go Bows!

    hope for a better game from the girls today.

  4. wop ur jaws September 21, 2013 2:37 pm

    watching the video. pretty good crowd.

  5. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:38 pm

    thanks for the exact shocker link

  6. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:41 pm

    3. they won, which is what matters matters. give Creighton some credit. they cut down their service and unforced hitting errors and played the kind of match UH had expected them to.

  7. Maverick September 21, 2013 2:48 pm

    Wahine playing much better today. Nice start.

  8. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:49 pm

    UH up 15-7 at the TTO
    harton 4-16, Manu-Olevao and Adolph 3-0-4. 2 aces. Uiato and Hartong. Long has served.

  9. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:56 pm

    Uiato with 2 dumps, UH up20-15 TO WSU

  10. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:57 pm

    Hartong 4-1-10, Adolph 4-0-6, Manu-Olevao 3-1-5, Vorster 2-0-3, Uiato 2-0-2

  11. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 2:59 pm

    UH with the double sub, Goodman and Higgins. UH up 22-17

  12. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:02 pm

    Wahine had been up 23-17. WSU back with a 3-0 run, including a block of Uiato. TO UH 23-20

  13. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:04 pm

    hartong with a kill, ace by Uiato. 25-20.

  14. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:05 pm

    Hartong took 40% of UH’s swings. Need to spread the wealth around.

  15. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:07 pm

    UH hit 271, Hartong 7-3-20, Adolpho 4-0-8, Manu-Olevao 3-1-8, Vorster 2-0-5, Uiato 2-1-3, Taylor 0-0-5. 2 aces, 1 SE. 1 block, 24 digs (11 by Longo)
    Shockers hit 231. 2 aces. 21 digs, 2 blocks. Andrade 3-0-6, Driskill 3-1-7.

  16. Ashley September 21, 2013 3:08 pm

    6. hold up, i just said i hope they play better today. I said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about Creighton, only that I was hoping for a better turn out than what happened yesterday. i never doubted Creighton at all, sorry for hoping they play better. My bad.

  17. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:10 pm

    And my bad for reading more into it. I don’t think UH has played that badly. they did have some let downs and the other team raised their play
    14. it was much more spread out through 15 if you read the stats at the TTO. Hartong took more swings toward the end.

  18. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:12 pm

    Wow, Ginger missed her second straight serve.

  19. mei mei September 21, 2013 3:14 pm

    wow Ginger, you’re brought to be Back row/serving specialist… watsup?

  20. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:14 pm

    17. Still not a good situation. If I’m scouting UH, I’ll plan on loading up on Hartong at the end of sets and force someone else to win the match.

  21. AniMatsuri September 21, 2013 3:15 pm

    Interesting listening to Hawaii announced by station that’s dedicated to the other team.

  22. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:21 pm

    Kinda neat, I hear “Let’s go Bows” in the background as I watch the streaming video. Great fan support in Kansas.

  23. mei mei September 21, 2013 3:22 pm

    I think it’s the team-mates chanting …

  24. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:23 pm

    Kill by M-O, UH pu 15-13. So is this anti Long or pro-Kawamura debate? Long struggled yesterday and they are giving her a chance to work through it today. hasn’t happened yet.

  25. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:23 pm

    Jade just served.

  26. lineout September 21, 2013 3:25 pm

    hawaii rarely leaves hawaii… lol

  27. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:27 pm

    UH up 20-17. TO WSU

  28. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:28 pm

    26. I think they should put Long back in to work through it. Rather now than when the match is on the line.

  29. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:31 pm

    Goodman gets a kill at 21-17. UH not able to get Taylor in so Higgins in the front row. Funny. Higgins and Vorster team for the block

  30. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:33 pm

    Manu-Olevao ends it 25-20

  31. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:35 pm

    Interesting listening to the WSU announcer. Doesn’t have Leahey’s flair, but he doesn’t make a lot of the in-game mistakes either. Very even keeled.

  32. Vbfan September 21, 2013 3:36 pm

    Hopefully no 3rd set letdown this time.

  33. mei mei September 21, 2013 3:37 pm

    the shocker radio announcer keeps saying that UH was down 2 games to Creighton then Rainbow Wahine won the next three sets?? huh??

  34. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:39 pm

    caught that too…he must have been given bad info

  35. grace September 21, 2013 3:40 pm

    I am glad the announcer on video speaks highly of Hawaii

  36. grace September 21, 2013 3:43 pm

    Ali Longo so valuable back there digging and passing!
    Where is Ashley Kastl? Why no PT?

  37. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:44 pm

    31. we’ll see what happens.
    do think Hartong set too much but obviously she’s been effective and you go to your hot hitter
    Hartong 13-3-30 333, Manu-Olevao 6-2-18, Taylor 5-2-15 (all kills in Set 2 5-2-10), Vorster 2-0-6, Uiato 2-2-4, Goodman 1-1-3,
    3 aces, 5 erros (Long with 2), 36 digs, Longo 15. UH 4 blocks, 3 in Set 2 so they out block WSU 3-1 in Set 2
    UH hit 306 for Set 2 ,WSU 125.

  38. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:45 pm

    Someone mentioned the Let’s Go Bows. Blaine said there were some UH fans there.

  39. Maverick September 21, 2013 3:50 pm

    Hearing the chant again from the fans, Let’s Go Bows

  40. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 3:51 pm

    UH down 9-6. TO Wahine. probably more of a ‘focus’ TO. they don’t want the crowd back into this

  41. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 4:03 pm

    Interesting. UH finally take the lead at 21-20. Hartong yet to have a kill in Set 3.

  42. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 4:04 pm

    UH up 22-20 on a WSU hitting error. TO WSU
    Hartong 0-0-6 in Set 3.
    Olevao 10-3-25 for the match.

  43. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 4:07 pm

    Adolph blocked twice. WSU has tied it at 23. TO UH

  44. Maverick September 21, 2013 4:09 pm

    Nice match.

  45. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 4:09 pm

    Wahine win 25-23. last two points came on an overreach by WSU and a hitting error . back in a bit

  46. lineout September 21, 2013 4:10 pm

    great match to a very good wsu team

  47. Vbfan September 21, 2013 4:18 pm

    Hard to believe but I don’t think Hartong got a single kill in the third set

  48. surfboy September 21, 2013 4:23 pm

    Who made the all tourney team/mvp?

  49. LanaiBoy September 21, 2013 4:24 pm

    I thought for sure that Hawaii would go to Hartong in the last part of the 3rd set when they were 3 points ahead. They went twice to Adolpho instead and Wichita got two straight blocks. The coach, in the post-game show, said that they were trying to slow down Hartong and Manu-Olevao by concentrating its blocks on them. Sort of succeeded in the 3rd set but not the first 2. The rest of the Bows came through and the Shockers made a few unforced errors at the end, thank goodness.

  50. hollycow September 21, 2013 4:28 pm

    49. Will be after tomorrow’s match.

  51. Maverick September 21, 2013 4:28 pm

    49. There’s one more match tomorrow to close out the tourney. Not clear they will announce prior to the completion of that match.

  52. Warriorfan September 21, 2013 4:35 pm

    Succesful weekend, got three solid rpi boosting wins.

  53. hossana September 21, 2013 5:01 pm

    Forget all the criticisms and negativity as to who did what and didn’t do what but let’s congratulate this team in unison for going on the road and winning all three games…needless to say, it was not easy but the bottom line is Shoji et. staff and the team came through on a difficult road trip playing before pro-Wichita State crowd.
    They deserve nothing but plaudits and certainly deserve a rest…I mean a good rest with winning 4 tournaments in a row against tough competition……nothing more and nothing less…..

  54. Cruisecontrol September 21, 2013 5:18 pm

    49 – Wichita State site is showing partial all tourney team:
    MVP – Emily Hartong, Hawaii
    Kalei Adolpho, Hawaii
    Mita Uiato, Hawaii
    Kendall Kritenbrink, South Dakota

    Guess they’ll fill it out after tomorrow.

  55. Cindy Luis September 21, 2013 5:26 pm

    56. yes, just got that. thanks. should be reflective above.

  56. KML808 September 21, 2013 6:49 pm

    There were about 75 Hawaii fans there and we were right behind the media table, thus the chant of “Lets go Bows” was heard over the radio. We were loud..

  57. OhanaInBellingham September 22, 2013 1:49 pm

    Mahalos to you, KML808, and the 74 others!
