Go Bows! Too bad its not on regular tv.
Cindy on a different topic, any truth to the rumor that Emma Smith is transferring to Cal? Gosh I hope its not true but if it is I wish her all the best, unless they play us of course :)…

2 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 1:53 pm

1. haven’t heard that.
I won’t be back to Hawaii until Monday night.

8 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:13 pm

Emily Hartong in the house. sitting with Fey’s family.

9 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 2:17 pm

Too many service errors, hope that’s not a trend that will continue.

10 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:17 pm

Ugly serving from both sides. BYU up 15-14 at the TTO.
BYU with 4 SEs, UH with 6.

11 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:21 pm

Wil Stanley, who has been injured, nasty brace on his left arm, comes into serve.

Mt. Olive vs. King, Barton vs. Limestone.

14 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 2:26 pm

Hope UH gets some blocks will be important to slow down BYU’s pins.
Not sure why the warriors block disappears against BYU.

15 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:28 pm

Jarman hits wide. UH up 23-21. TO BYU

16 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:30 pm

well if you are watching you’d see that the BYU hitters, particularly Patch, very high over the block. Jarman is 6-9. UH’s block is bothering BYU enough

17 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:31 pm

Van Tilburg ends it 25-22

18 T103 April 20, 2017 at 2:32 pm

Cheeee! taking set 1, lets go Bows! Lets clean up those serves and start blocking! Keep pushing!!!!!! What a difference a neutral sight has!

19 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 2:33 pm

Yes it’s just a stark contrast to the last match.UH struggled blocking in Provo also.
Huge and smart play by Stijn to end.UH is playing much smarter tonight against BYu.That was crucial for the warriors to win the first set.

20 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:37 pm

it was the first trip to Provo for SVT and several other Warriors. No excuses but.

21 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:40 pm

Penn State up 2-0 on Princeton, 25-19 in S2.

22 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:49 pm

Deja vu. BYU up 15-14 at the TTO

23 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:53 pm

Sander with an ace on the baseline. It’s 18-16. TO UH

24 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 2:56 pm

2 kills by SVT and it’s 18-18. TO BYU

25 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:01 pm

27 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:07 pm

UH with 2 blocks. wins 25-23.

28 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 3:07 pm

Wow the block showed up huge that set. Gasman is a beast. Hope UH sweeps. They are on a roll.

29 T103 April 20, 2017 at 3:08 pm

CHEEEEEE OMG yea baby yea!!! Up 2, we gotta keep pushing! Good job boys, lets keep it up!!!!

30 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:11 pm

Penn State sweeps Princeton to move into EIVA final vs. St. Francis
It was Gamman and Franciskovic closing on Sander.

31 Andrew April 20, 2017 at 3:11 pm

Wow what a revenge statement it would be to end BYUs season with a sweep

32 uhfan April 20, 2017 at 3:11 pm
33 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 3:15 pm

31. BYU has a great chance for one of the at large spots.

34 uhfan April 20, 2017 at 3:16 pm
35 Andrew April 20, 2017 at 3:17 pm

33.

Oh right forgot about that. I hope they don’t get it though.

36 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:21 pm

another block (6.5) and UH up 11-8. TO BYU

37 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:25 pm

33. as have said, much depends on what happens with Ohio State. if UCI were to beat Long Beach State, who knows what happens then

38 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:27 pm

couple of problems handling Sanders serve and BYU takes the 15-14 lead at the TTO

39 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 3:29 pm

42 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:37 pm

Fey with his 16th kill. it’s 21-20. TO BYU

43 Don April 20, 2017 at 3:37 pm

This R1 is calling BYU’s cheating at the center line, something they didn’t do in provo…

44 warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 3:43 pm

Our pin hitters saved the day today, although the middles were awesome (per usual)

Now just need Irvine to lose and OSU to win Saturday, and UH is lock no matter what happens in the MPSF championship.

45 T103 April 20, 2017 at 3:43 pm

OMG!!!!!! Break out the brooms! that was soooo freaking awesome, such sweet revenge!!! Good job boys!!!!!! Congrats Kupono!!!! Great match!!!!

46 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 3:44 pm

warriors win 25-22

47 Hapaguy April 20, 2017 at 3:45 pm

UNO! DOS! ADIOS! As Charlie Wade likes to say. Sweet Sweep! Wat to go Bows!

48 Don April 20, 2017 at 3:47 pm

Sea level kills Cougars…

Congrats on a great win guys!!

Cindy,

Where is the VB final 4 being held this year?

51 uhfan April 20, 2017 at 4:14 pm
52 Kazu April 20, 2017 at 4:41 pm

Great exciting match. Does this means that when they play BYU at Provo is it the altitude,bad ref or both. What ever it is they sure did a good job tonight,hope they can repeat on Sat.
1 I did see somewhere’s that Emma was leaving for Cal. Was hoping that she would compete for a starting job this year but i guess that’s not going to happen. Wish her all the best. Won ‘t be surprised if there is a cpl more transfer’s.

53 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 5:00 pm

50. Ohio State
still don’t know of the play-in games are at host sites next Saturday or Ohio State on May 2.

52. like i said, didn’t see anything about Smith.

Long Beach wins Set 1 25-19.

54 Candace April 20, 2017 at 5:10 pm

Emma Smith posted on her Instagram yesterday (4/19) announcing she’d be transferring to Cal Berkeley.

55 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 5:28 pm

Long Beach takes set 2 25-22.

56 Cindy Luis April 20, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Beach wins 3-0 with at 25-19 victory in Set 3

57 eric96822 April 20, 2017 at 6:15 pm

What I would love to happen. Hawaii wins MPSF, Ohio State Falls in MIVA final. Long Beach and Ohio State get at Large Bids. BYU out. I just don’t like BYU. 😀

58 Warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 6:20 pm

Stijn played his worst matches of the year against Long Beach State earlier this season hope saturday is a different story.

59 vbfan April 20, 2017 at 6:51 pm

#57 If Ohio State wins the MIVA, the LBSU-Hawaii match is for bragging rights, but otherwise meaningless. I rather not take my chances with Ohio State losing.

60 Warriorfan April 20, 2017 at 6:54 pm

If OSU beats grand canyon I wouldn’t care if hawaii wins or loses, better to beat Long Beach in two weeks when it matters the most anyway.

61 Kahuna April 20, 2017 at 6:56 pm

I want the Warriors to win it ALL. We paid back BYU for our 2 losses now it’s time to pay back LB!

62 islandman April 20, 2017 at 6:58 pm

58. In that match, Stijn was playing on the left side.

63 Randall Ng April 20, 2017 at 7:04 pm

Charley Wade and his staff did an excellent job in pinning down BYU pins and strategizing against BYU. Too bad it wasn’t played here but a win is a win and the Bows did it by sweeping BYU…How sweet is that!! Wade deserves much credit for this season success as I have seen him make the adjustments when necessary and today’s game is an example of Wade’s performance as a coach…..his offense is so quick and diverse and he really makes use of ALL of his players and All of his players have bought into his system…..a job well done.

64 rabbit ears April 20, 2017 at 8:54 pm

good luck to Emma. Next man up.

65 Ron April 20, 2017 at 9:12 pm

I have been longing for a victory over BYU for many years. this team seems to have that killer instinct needed to get the job done. Great announcing by Tiff on the broadcast,he sure gets my heart racing. Very sad about Emma Smith, “she could a been a star” but I think we have that position covered going forward.

66 noblesol April 20, 2017 at 10:12 pm

Nice win. Just plain fun to watch this team. Don’t think they’ve peaked yet. They can play even better.

67 haleiwacrossfitter April 21, 2017 at 3:02 am

Sorry if I missed this in the thread. Is the championship bring televised between UH and LBSU?

68 Cindy Luis April 21, 2017 at 6:25 am

http://hawaiiwarriorworld.com/?p=43045
see new thread for Friday.
only confirmation I got on Smith transfer was via her instagram. Guess that is good enough.

As for TV, same deal as Thursday. online stream only.
Perhaps someone will periscope it but believe that is technically illegal as was the request to FB live it.
