    Wong’s team wins 25-21.
    Teams are switching setters. Tuaniga the only blocker on Wong’s team. Adolpho goes to Ah Mow’s team.

  2. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:06 pm

    both Uiato and TK are playing. I missed them in the lineup. thank you DF for pointing out who i was missing

  3. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:06 pm

    Kyra G. hasn’t played.

  4. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:08 pm

    Sorry DF, didn’t mean to delete your post. please re-post.

  5. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 4:12 pm

    Cindy, that is ok. You answered my question. In your #2 post. But I do have a question, are they rotating like in a regular set and match, or are they stationary. Meaning, for instance, Hartong just stays on the LS, does not rotate thru all 6 position?

  6. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:15 pm

    5. Yes, this is the real deal.
    Passi serving, has Ah Mow’s side, with Hartong and Uiato up 16-9.

  7. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 4:18 pm

    3. I can see Kyra G. not playing much since she will most likely redshirt.

  8. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:22 pm

    Ah Mow’s team wins 25-13. which means Uiato’s side has won both times. Final point came when Adolpho had a nice read as Tuaniga tried to tip on 2nd contact.
    Very impressed with Kawamura at libero.

  9. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:24 pm

    There is a definite difference with set selection between the two setters, IMHO. thought Uiato and Hartong connected very well but that side didn’t have as many trouble sets as when Higgins was setting that side. Higgins went a lot to Hartong on the bail-me-out set.

  10. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 4:27 pm

    Cindy, how was Uiato’s and Higgins’s sets to the MB’s? Last year, Uiato was a little off, on her sets to the MB’s.

  11. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:30 pm

    They are switching up a few things.
    Wong’s team. 2 setters, Kyra G setting when in the back row, Higgins in the front row. this team has Kastl, Long, Taylor, Vorster, Manu-Olevao, Lelepali, Ponce.
    Ah Mow’s team. Uiato, Kaela at OP, Tuangia, Mendoza (L), Passi, Adolpho, Long, Kawamura, Hartong.

  12. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:31 pm

    think the MBs are connecting well. wouldn’t blame Uiato for everything. Vorster still jumps early sometimes, as she did on the set from Kyra G.

  13. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:34 pm

    Shoji called a lift on Mendoza, drawing loud boos. Kaela G. hitting well on the right.

  14. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 4:38 pm

    Just thinking, without Croson, the MB’s need to be more of a force, so their timing with the setter has to be much, much better. The MB’s need to average at least 3 kills a set. Also, the RS has to be more involved in the offense, averaging around 2-3 kills a set. Cannot just rely on Hartongs arm.

  15. LC August 24, 2013 4:42 pm

    Cindy the Nebraska Red White scrimmage was a sellout today 10 bucks a pop $ 7 to stand I don’t understand why so many people were jumping all over me on your previous thread.

  16. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:43 pm

    they aren’t relying on Hartong’s arm for sure today. They have plenty of options at OHs. and you’ll see that when they start playing.

  17. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 4:44 pm

    13. Cindy, wonder if the team will make him do a little running for that call. Just joking around.,

  18. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:46 pm

    Manu-Olevao’s serve has her team (with Higgins) rallying from down 18-15 to a 19-18 lead. Adolpho puts down to kills and Uiato’s side back up 20-19. after a 20-20 tie, Uiato dump and a block on Taylor on the left gives Uiato’s team a 22-20 lead.

  19. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:47 pm

    Shoji misses an obvious net but both sides kept playing. good rally but Passi hits wide. Vorster on the overpass ties it at 22.

  20. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 4:51 pm

    Uiato’s side win 26-24. Tuaniga on a very quick slide, Manu-Olevao hits wide, may have been led too much on the set by Higgins. very balanced teams.

  21. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 5:03 pm

    Cindy, does Tuaniga’s shins seem to be holding up? In previous years, it seemed to be giving her a little problem.

  22. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 5:06 pm

    For the moment, the shins look good. She is moving really well.

  23. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 5:07 pm

    Recap on a new thread in a bit.

  24. Dedicatedfan August 24, 2013 5:10 pm

    22. That is good news. Really hoping Tuaniga finally has a pain free year. So she can show people how well she can play, not having her shins holding her back.

  25. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 5:17 pm

    Thanks for the info LC. Think there is a big push at Nebraska now that they are moving some matches into the bigger arena. What was the total they drew?
    As I said, I will ask Shoji. Agree UH could make some money with it.
    but the issue may be the continued harping on it.

  26. vballfreak808 August 24, 2013 5:23 pm

    25. Nebraska match had 8,243

  27. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 5:39 pm

    Thank you. Shoji was aware of them drawing over 7,000.
    they could very well pass UH in attendance this year.

  28. Cindy Luis August 24, 2013 5:40 pm

    see new thread for mini recap.
