Another early morning practice, went to 830 since there was no lifting. They go to afternoon tomorrow, as is the game-week routine.
Wait for it
Setters are progressing, added a few plays. First time I’ve seen Maglio hit the slide.
Manu-Olevao had some bombs of lineshots from the left. Long also, particularly on the right.
Wait for it.
There were several lineups used, including the tall one that had the 3 freshmen in the front row on the ‘second team.’ Greeley left, Maglio middle, Huff right. Huff and Greeley also switched positions for some plays.
Wait for it.
Injury update: Taylor still only cleared to rehab. They are hoping for her to be cleared to practice by next week.
Adolpho held out of practice to rest her ankle. It’s not serious but with three matches this weekend, they wanted to give her an extra day to recoup. She was at practice, wearing fuchsia KT on her right lower leg. Said she was fine when I asked.
That being said, if it doesn’t look like she can go or she seems that she’s struggling, they will not hesitate to put in Maglio.
Thank you for waiting.
As of today, the tentative starting lineup is S Higgins, MB Adolpho and Magill; RS Passi. LS Manu-Olevao and Long. L Kahakai. Mendoza DS, first sub. Could change over the next two days. Who really knows.
Except for Magill a completely Hawaii-raised starting lineup, the first I can remember there being going back to the 70s. There have been instances when there were six ‘local’ players on the court at the same time but I don’t recall six in the starting lineup.
