SandBows on TV Wednesday and other random things

think we finally have it sorted out about TV for Wednesday against USC. Even thought the times are up for Sunday, those might change after they see how Wednesday’s time frame goes.

And, yes, it’s free admission. They were working on shade the last I was told but bring an umbrella or hat just in case. Bleachers are metal so bring something to sit on.

Hall is very excited that these matches will be televised live. A first for collegiate sand. Said it will add to the recruiting pitch.

As posted on previous thread:
Two courts being used for first two groups of matches, one court for the final two pairs.
4 p.m. start for pairs 5 and 6, 15 minutes after those end, they’ll go with the 3 and 4 pairs.

There likely will be a bit of a break in between the end of the 3-4 and the start of No. 2 at 7 p.m. 15 minutes after that is done then they’ll go with the No. 1 pairs.

Cal and Nebraska in also for duals as well as Queen of the Beach. That tournament has UH, USC, Cal and Nebraska.It was supposed to be at Queen’s both days but Spike & Serve is also hosting the Dad Center Challenge Saturday & Sunday. So UH’s tournament will be at Queen’s Friday and UH on Saturday.

The weirdness: Spike & Serve is run by Kevin Wong. He set up this tournament when his brother Scott was still the SandBows coach. K. Wong told me he invited UH to participate but the school’s compliance ruling was that it was a perceived nepotism. Not sure why since it wasn’t like Hawaii would be the only team entered. K. Wong said he hopes that now Hall is the coach that compliance will see things differently next year.

So the other random:
People have been curious about Wade’s trip to the Netherlands and they threw out a few names on the previous thread. From what I’ve been told, it is a 6-7/6-8 OH for next school year.
Let the googling begin.

    other random items:

    did that north texas thing vs uh exhibition someone had mentioned ever materialized?

    although shoji couldnt make happen the moloka’i clinic/scrimmage this year, did he mention of plans to create it for next year?

    Hope UH wins flights 5, 4 and 3 and the match is decided before it goes on air.

    I am guessing Wade is visiting Stijn van Tilburg who is a 6′ 8 pin hitter.

    1. Discussed it on yesterday’s thread and Monday.
    and no, no discussion about Molokai next year. With Adolpho going back to basketball, they’ve lost that draw. Although Clare Anderson spent her early years there.

    2. could be but I was never given a name.

    Flight 5 needs work. USC leads 1-0

  6. warriorfan March 18, 2015 5:57 pm

    was the fifth flight Chow and Boyan?

    USC mens team in danger of losing again to Northridge, Northridge has really awesome live stream and it’s free.

    Darn looks like UH 4 flight lost to USC as well, Need to win flight 3 to stay in it.

  8. R.M March 18, 2015 6:30 pm

    USC already won pairs 5,4 and 3

  9. Kazu March 18, 2015 6:51 pm

    Got results from USC website. Not good for UH. What happened?

  10. warriorfan March 18, 2015 6:51 pm

    Well that’s disappointing that the match is already decided before they even go live on ocsports, maybe next time have both the 2 and 3 flights at the same time when they go on air.

    Oh well, hope UH beats USC when it counts most , like last year.

  11. Cindy Luis March 18, 2015 6:52 pm

    yep, have started a new thread with scores

  12. islandman March 18, 2015 6:55 pm

    Cindy, did you call in to Sports Animals show today for a contest ?

  13. Cindy Luis March 18, 2015 7:01 pm

    no, wasn’t me on the call in. for one thing, I’m ineligible to win stuff from the radio station … for a couple of reasons inclining my son works for them

  14. Cindy Luis March 18, 2015 7:06 pm

    10. TV doesn’t want 2 matches at the same time. said it was too confusing and created too busy of a background
