SVT speculation clarified, U.S. men defeat Iran

The only truth to van Tilburg’s instagram is that he has indeed left Hawaii, as in the state not the team, and is back home.
spoke to Wade who is in California to confirm.
Had also heard from several sources that his teammates were joking around about how much they’d miss him.

as mentioned previously, redshirt freshman middle Jack Reese has left the team and going to George Mason.
The other player that I heard might be leaving because of finances isn’t, according to Wade.

Today in Poland, the U.S. swept Iran 25-17, 25-22, 30-28
setter Micah Christenson helped his team to a .448 hitting efficiency while Iran finished at .188.

Libero Erik Shoji was credited with eight digs, one of which landed for a point after outside hitter T.J. DeFalco made a tremendous save out of bounds, Shoji passed it over and Iran let it drop.

Funny Tweet from Dave Shoji yesterday about Sushi in Poland … I don’t think so.

Haven’t seen it announced yet but sounds like UH will be well represented on the final MJNT roster.
Matautia, Rosenmeier, Gasman and G. Worsley had been named to Men’s JNT training team.

    have not heard officially but Rosenmeier posted on Instagram that he and Gasman have made the cut. waiting on USAV for release.

    No surprise at those two but does it mean Gage did not make it either?

    don’t know. USAV said they were waiting on some things before they announce the final roster. one thing hinges on whether DeFalco stays with senior team for World League. if he does then that opens an OH spot where Matautia is one of the possibilities.

    So, Kalei Greely’s twin brothers are coming to UH for football, one on scholarship the other a preferred walk on. Both played HS volleyball & seemingly did well. One of the brothers says he’d maybe even try volleyball. Interesting…

    Watching the team practice for their exhibition against Brazil, I see both Austin and Gage along with Rosenmeier and Gasman.

    Congrats to all four for making the final roster besides Gage any idea who else started?

    All 4 UH players started the last 2 sets in a match that went 4. It was an all UH serve receive in those sets. USA won the first 3 sets before losing in the final set.

    4. the Greeley football stuff is fairly old but new about the volleyball item. thanks for the link.
    6. don’t believe this is the final roster. This was an exhibition.
    it was hinging on this weekend and the World League
    IF DeFalco stays with the World League team, Matautia will stay with the junior national team. If DeFalco moves down to junior team, Matautia is out.
