Ramos, Sedore, Timmer, Averill (floor captain), Marks, Zarkovic & Cheape
UH serving better already, UH with 3 aces up 9-6.
so much for that. SC takes the 11-10 lead. TO Warriors.
gotta love Ramos with the solo stuff ties it at 14. SC comes back to take the 15-14 lead at the TTO.
Blogging from home again Cindy? Hope you’re not sick. Looks like USC radio guy & gal are in your spot tonight.
Warriors on a 4-0 run, UH up 18-15. TO Sc.
SC has come back to within 21-20. TO UH. Warriors up 5-1 in blocks.
so frustrating to watch. UH serves for the Set. Zarkovic nets his serve. Christiansen with an amazing dig over the press table, keeps it alive Marks blocked, Averill block. SC wins 26-24
Warriors continue to struggle after getting to 20. UH outscored 7-3 at the end.
This team can choke like no other.
Why ramos didn’t set outside when Christenson wasn’t even ready to go up to block I’ll never know, Siki would have had no blockers up instead he went right to Sedore who had two blockers on him jeez.
Timmer 1-0-1, Sedore 1-0-7, Averill 3-1-5, Marks 1-2-8, Zarkovic 2-0-8, Holt 1-0-2. For SC
Jansen 3-2-7, Christenson 0-1-1, Rivero 3-1-9, Feathers 4-0-5, Kirchner 1-0-1, Booth 6-2-15.
UH 3-1 edge in aces, 5-3.5 edge in blocks. SC with 6SEs, UH with 5 SEs.
Digs: SC 19, UH 15.
UH led Set 2 3-0. Rivero with 2 straight aces, puts SC up 4-3.
WF, was thinking the same thing. could have even dumped it.
SC on an 8-1 run, lead 8-4. TO UH
Not a good night. SC up 15-7 at the TTO. was expecting a little more from the Warriors tonight.
I am very discouraged by the downward spiral this team is taking. I think Wade needs to do some lineup changes, put in Max at setter and a new libero, maybe take siki out as well.
Thinking they need to make a change soon. Olsen in for Marks. UH still down 16-8.
Christianson with an ace 18-8. TO UH.
LIkely too little too late, SC up 19-12. TO Trojans.
Felt like the wheels fell off early in set after a pretty good start :-/
Warriors not folding, have rallied to 20-16. TO UH. Sedore serving.
UH holds off 3 set points, not a fourth. SC wins 25-21.
Ramo’s set location the past two weeks has been awful. Even on freeballs he makes poor sets.
UH hits .222 for set 2. they were at 000 midway through. SC at 236.
SC with 26 digs, UH 15.. both teams with 5 aces, UH 10 SEs, SC with 8.
Totals for 2 sets
Timmer 1-0-1, Sedore 8-2-18, Averill 3-1-6, Marks 2-3-13, Zarkovic 4-1-12, Holt 2-0-4.
Jansen 6-2-10, Rivera 5-3-14, Feathers 4-1-7, Kirchner 3-1-5, Booth 9-2-21.
yep, at home with a cold that started last friday at the arena. glad I wasn’t over there when Christenson went flying over where I have been.
I do think they need to change something up.
Too painful to watch
Agree. so much potential and they just can’t be consistent. UH up 8-4 on some great serves.
UH hanging on to the lead, 15-13 at the TTO.
And just like that, SC scores 3 straight. takes the lead at 16-15. TO UH.
Sedore with a kill, UH up 20-19. TO SC.
Marks & Averill with the block. UH serving for the Set 24-23. TO SC.
Averill with the stuff. UH wins 25-22
UH hit .280 for Set 3, SC .259. SC still way ahead on digs which has kept a lot of rallies alive 36-19. play of the set may have been Zarkovic’s solo stuff of Jansen. Instead of SC leading 21-20, UH takes the lead at 21-20.
UH with 11 blocks, SC with 5.
UH with 8 aces, SC with 7. both teams with 14 SEs. Sedore with 11 kills leads the Warriors. Booth with 13 and Jansen with 12 for the Trojans.
I see this going 5, anyone else?
Maybe not. Poor set to Holt. SC leads 4-1. Booth with his 15th makes it 5-1
SC has pulled away at 8-2. TO UH.
I’m afraid it won’t go to five. Seems like a repeat of Northridge.
I know people will think im a Joby Ramos hater, but his setting is just not up to par im sorry.
Zarkovic with his eighth kill, and now an ace, pulls UH to 9-6. That is UH’s 9th ace tonight.
don’t think you’re a hater. the sets aren’t great, but many times the pass has been very tight to the net. surprised he hasn’t been called for nets.
Another mis-set to Holt. Think he’s jumping too early, SC up 15-9 at the TTO.
Hawaii closes to 17-14. TO SC.
Nice up by Cheape and Zarkovic out of the back row, pulls Uh to 20-17.
Sedore with his 15th kill, makes it 20-18.
they made the right call on that one. Marks attack was off the block into the atenna. They miseed that one though when the Trojan went under the net. Zarkovic with another kill. it’s 22-20
Averill with the block. it’s 22-21. TO SC.
SC with match point at 24-21. TO UH.
wow, Olsen with the overpass. ties it at 24. great serving by Sedore.
Block for UH, makes it 25-24.
ace by Sedore ends it. on to 5
I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong. I’m glad they proved me wrong. I won’t make any predictions for the fifth set. Cindy, you were right, you sure had unshakable faith.
that 4th set ending was just ridiculous! so fun to watch. this team likes to play from behind, and that 4th set was kind of a microcosm of the season so far.
sedore serving with ice in his veins.
here’s hoping they can carry that momentum into a win in the 5th.
usc might still be shell-shocked from set 4. this match was supposed to be over. maybe they can’t believe they’re still playing …
usc has as many Hawaii players (cassiday, christensen and lam) on their side of the court as Hawaii right now (ramos, cheape, holt)
sedore with a yellow card for talking through the net … looks like some of CSUN’s antics from last week followed hawaii to this match tonight …
definitely the most entertaining comeback (and win) for hawaii this year … and this team has had a lot of comebacks this season.
congrats to hawaii and wade for the win!
Wow – enough said
Sorry, had to file a story for the first edition so Tsai could get quotes.
great win for Uh. surprised that the yellow went to Sedore. SC guys looked to be jabbering at the ref more.
Oh, I didn’t have any faith that it would go five. It just had that feeling when I wrote it. Didn’t think SC wasn’t playing that well.
will be starting a new thread for the rewind with some stats.
