USC-Long Beach winner sits back and waits for the losers bracket to be played out.
Too bad they started with a bad loss to Long Beach , a team they should have beat, it’s been a pretty gloomy week for UH volleyball, Hope UCI pulls up the match tonight and UH gets the at large at least.
18. don’t know if they ‘should have’ beaten them. it was close the 49ers all season, 3-2 and last week 4-1 but a close 4-1.
Because of a change in the pairs event, UH can only put its No. 1 pair in so Tiegs-Taylor playing Sunday.
No room for excuses but even though the sandbows is already there since Wednesday I think the time of the match against Long beach still affect their game. Still a good season for them.
I think it would be a different way on how they will award the individual awards this year. Unlike last year that the all-Americans were given to the pairs that advanced to the quarter finals in the pairs competition.
21. not sure what you mean. Why would you think it would be different?
I think about that because of the sandbows did not made to the finals they only have Tiegs and Taylor for the pairs. If they will do the same thing like last year. That means Spieler is already out for thr all american race. I know it’s just an individual award. But Spieler played amazing this year and she deserves it.
Oh sorry, they might not change it. But I really think they have to look at the other players also that cannot make it to the pairs
23. yes, she is already out of All-American consideration. she AND Urban deserve it but that’s the way things go. there is a play-in match but UH not being considered for that. Spieler Urban went 1-2 today.
and for those who care, UCI-Pepperdine tied at 1-1. Waves up early 4-1 in Set 3
Penn State wins its 17th straight EIVA title, 3-0 over George Mason
Loyola takes down Lewis 3-1 for the MIVA.
Loyola gets the auto, Lewis will get an at-large.
Irvine is error prone on serves and spikes. Pepperdine is a whole lot more motivated to win this match and it looks like a repeat of yesterday where Pepperdine wins the final three sets. Irvine knows that it will get the at-large berth anyway while Pepperdine needs to win this to move on.
28. pretty much.
Surprise, Irvine made a comeback thanks to an ace and service winner by a reserve player and then service error by Pepperdine. Tamir Hershko missed every serve I saw starting from the second set and now has seven service errors. He’s much better at the front line with his spikes. I’ve never seen anyone so error prone in serves. Irvine better not have him serve if Pepperdine has match point and Irvine needs to win the serve to stay alive.
After 8 missed serves, Tamir Hershko finally scores an ace for Irvine, propelling the Anteaters for a 3-point lead. Score is 16-13. Irvine just needs to keep siding out to win. Pepperdine has called two quick timeouts. Score is now 17-13. Just eight more points. Can Irvine stay ahead?
UCI up 19-15 in Set 4 after a huge comeback in Set 3 25-23
UCI serving for the match at 24-21
Waves come back to 24-23. feeling a lot like Set 3 yesterday. Taylor with 23 kills, hitting over 600
Zot, zot. UCI wins 25-23
so now UH waits for Saturday selection show
So Irvine eked out a four-set victory, winning by the slimmest margin each time with scores of 25-23. Let’s hope now that UH gets the at-large berth.
in the hands of the committee.
NCAA.com 130 EST, 7:30 a.m. HST
Hope UH gets in.
Wahine underperformed but finished 2nd in conference and scored a dominant tournament victory over a ranked team, and took a set off UW.
Rainbow Warriors were ranked #1 for 5 weeks, had one of their best records in years, played very well on the road (wins at UCLA, Irvine, LBSU) and are in the conversation for the NCAA Tournament
SandBows were also ranked #1 and had a great season.
Not winning a championship does NOT = “sucking” … I agree all 3 could have done better at times, but they are all winners in my book!!
I think i heard this was the All-Tournament team:
Christensen, USC, Setter
Josh Taylor, Pepperdine
Andersen ” Libero
Brinkley UCI Libero
La Cavera, UCI, Outstanding player; He’s only 6′ 4″
Two former number 1 teams that can’t make it to the finals…ugh. Baseball, softball, football…..ugh. NaWahine water polo, yes.
39. thank you.
apologize for that comment being allowed briefly. It has been deleted. Usually that word gets you put in purgatory until approved.
just don’t understand people who only post when they want to be negative.
Sort of like Thursday’s UH men’s match. Silence while they’re winning Set 1.
40. thanks. not there. hadn’t seen the team.
2015 MPSF All-Tournament Team
Micah Christenson, USC
Siki Zarkovic, Hawaii
Brennan Anderson, Pepperdine
Josh Taylor, Pepperdine
Michael Brinkley, UCI
Andrew Benz, UCI
Zack La Cavera, UCI (MVP)
40. no surprise since he was also POY of the league.
So what would the brackets be like, if UH gets in ?
If Hawaii is picked, they would play tuesday against Penn State
Loyola would play against Pheiffer.
Then the winners would advance to play thursday against probable top seeds Lewis and Irvine.
45. not necessarily.
Lewis losing to Loyola does create some interesting scenarios.
depends on how they seed things.
well too bad for the sandbows. their stronger flights were lackluster and disappointing. tiegs/taylor will need to grind better for the pairs unless they out early or already out which i wouldnt be surprised, sad to say. i guess spielers work is spent, did they just simply wear out urban? boyan/schreiber not a very good contending flight all season at all, at least hall brought in some shock value with chow/zalopany.
also cindy that post on previous thread wasnt exactly a rant. i still declare title ix too weak. maybe im recapping on what it was when i watched it on rise of the wahine, was title ix something needed to be installed? or was it something that hindered womens teams? if rather due to lack of efficiency/usefulness. fine with football being a different conference, but with mens basketball? being in the same conference was no improvement either and besides they got problems since gib arnolds fiasco…may as well get rid of basketball for the men. wahine volleyball be making more money than mens basketball.
Warriors get in the tournament. Plays against Penn State.
In the first play-in match No. 3 seed Loyola Chicago (25-2) will be paired with No. 6 seed Pfeiffer (19-2), with the winner advancing to the championship bracket to play No. 2 seed UC Irvine (28-4). In the second play-in match, No. 4 seed Hawaii (21-6) will play No. 5 seed Penn State (20-9). The winner will be placed in the championship bracket to play No. 1 Lewis (25-3). Game times for the play-in matches are 9 and 11 p.m. ET. Game times for the semifinals are 9 and 11 p.m. ET. The championship match will be played at 9:30 p.m. ET. The semifinals will be streamed live at NCAA.com and the championship match will be broadcast live on ESPNU.

thanks new thread up
48. the words you used were “I will take my chance and rip on the scheduling….’
took that a rant.
You suggested that volleyball sue over scheduling using Title IX. That is not the intent of the law, originally passed in 1964 as the Civil Rights Act .
Title IX is an educational amendment to the civil rights act which was to end discrimination based on gender and passed in 1972. It applies to any institution that receives federal funding, including colleges.
Part of the reason Patsy Mink went into law was due to being denied admission to medical school because she was a female.
Hope that the above explanation is helpful and adds something to what you got out of The Rise of the Wahine. Was proud to be included in the film.
Is what happened to Wahine volleyball schedule fair? No. Was it right for basketball to insert games when volleyball schedule had tentatively been set? No.
but it is not basis for a law suit. Who would file? Shoji agreed to change things for, he said, his fans.
And, no, Wahine volleyball does not make more money than men’s basketball.
Moving to the Big West was a huge improvement over the WAC, for scheduling, travel and recruiting. There are several issues unique to UH compared to most of the other Big West schools and those including having a football team, not having an on campus stadium where fans can easily attend two sporting events in one day, football needing to be played later in the day which conflicts with evening volleyball and that UH is one of two programs that makes money in women’s volleyball.
They aren’t going to get rid of men’s basketball. That they had problems with Arnold has no bearing on the volleyball schedule.
