9 Don March 17, 2017 at 3:40 pm

Too many homer calls for BYU…missed over reach call was horrible.

10 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 3:58 pm

Hawaii’s been chasing since being down 2-0 in Set 2. Not understanding the Matautia serving sub. It’s 16-12 Cougars

11 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 4:04 pm

Ace by Worsley pulls UH to within 20-15. TO BYU

12 Warriorfan March 17, 2017 at 4:07 pm

This is why i wish Wade tried out stijn at outside/ rado at oppisite lineup more (even if it didnt work against long beach) during the easy stretch of schedule they just finished, Rosie and fey struggling.

13 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 4:09 pm

BYU takes Set 2 25-18

14 Andrew March 17, 2017 at 4:10 pm

Cindy, is the BYU Men’s coach also the coach of the women’s team? I was watching the interview after set 2 and thought he looked familiar

15 Greyfulk March 17, 2017 at 4:11 pm

They have Hawaii well scouted. All the vids on YouTube.

16 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 4:45 pm

he was. his wife now the women’s coach.

17 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 4:46 pm

12. it didn’t work and it was a bad move.
BYU finishes it out 25-20

18 eric96822 March 17, 2017 at 4:54 pm

Just watched the entire game. Some good streaks sandwiched by unfortunate unforced errors. Saw any chance of hosting the MPSF tourney slip down the drain. Forgettable game. Looking forward to tomorrow. Time to start some new momentum and finally win at Smith Fieldhouse. Just because we probably won’t host the MPSF tournament, doesn’t mean the can’t have a great rest of the season which is the most important part.

19 islandman March 17, 2017 at 4:55 pm

Tomorrow is another match, but where’s the UH depth that fans were posting about before ?

20 Warriorfan March 17, 2017 at 4:57 pm

Don’t think Rosenmeier should be starting the way he’s played the last four matches.

21 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 5:08 pm

18. they only traveled 13 so … a little surprised that Anastassiades wasn’t used to serve. Also didn’t use McKellar and Solbrig.

Meanwhile at Queen’s UH down 2-0 to FSU, lost at 3 Maglio & Weaver and at 5 Iosia-Zalopany.

22 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 5:19 pm

Taylor-Schucht win at 3 FSU still leads 2-1
Homayun-Kan trail in Set 3 14-12. match point for the ‘Noles

23 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 5:20 pm

FSU wins dual. clinch with win at 4

24 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 5:27 pm

Martin-Tucker hold on at No. 1, take Set 3 16-14.

25 Warriorfan March 17, 2017 at 5:37 pm

Not a good start to the weekend for UH volleyball teams.

26 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 5:42 pm

25. i guess. though turnaround for Maglio and Iosia to come back after indoor last night.
Warriors are 3-24 in Provo all time. not an easy place for visitors.

27 haleiwacrossfitter March 17, 2017 at 6:36 pm

I wonder why Charlie traveled with less players than the last road trip.

I’m not sure if any back up libero traveled, but I’m still wanting to get Tui to hit. He is much better at the net than Fey, Matautia and Rosey.

Slip Fey into libero jersey if need be. I would hate for this to be a Kim/Jessica Sudduth thing in 2000 repeat where the senior gets the nod. I don’t mean to knock on Fey, just curious to see how Tui could make a difference for us on the outside. Maybe with Stijn on the left and Rado on the right. It wouldn’t hurt. Can’t get much worse than another 3-0 sweep tomorrow. Need to mix it up. Use the depth we have.

28 blunite March 17, 2017 at 7:03 pm

Another option for Charlie is to accelerate the offense, let Worsley speed set to the pins (for the whole game). Speed is the neutralizer against almost any disadvantage (height, talent, and even coaching.)

They will miss Jennings’ blocking but increasing production will hopefully compensate. Besides, from what I saw several BYU hits went OTT. If they can side out over 80%, they stand a chance.

29 Cindy Luis March 17, 2017 at 7:05 pm

27. my mistake, they traveled 14

around the league tonight
*Long Beach State 3, CSUN 0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-20)
UCLA 3, Sacred Heart 0 (25-15, 25-19, 25-15)
UC SAN DIEGO 3, Concordia 1 (18-25, 29-27, 25-23, 25-22)
PENN STATE 3, Cal Baptist 1 (26-24, 25-16, 23-25, 26-24)

30 haleiwacrossfitter March 17, 2017 at 7:28 pm

It won’t hurt to give Joe a shot out there. He has more than proven his value to the team. But Jennings is on another level this year. Not just his blocks but his offense and leadership. But Joe would definitely speed things up.

31 rabbit ears March 17, 2017 at 9:50 pm

One loss and we want changes. What about the 15 wins in a row.

32 haleiwacrossfitter March 17, 2017 at 10:11 pm

I’ve been saying Tui and Fey should have swapped from the very beginning.

Regardless, those 15 in a row was against the softest part of our schedule. The sweep at Long Beach and now a sweep at BYU. We can’t afford to keep losing if we want a case for an at large bid to the tournament. We still have UCLA on the road. Our depth isn’t being utilized as it could be. When you lose, your weaknesses get exposed and adjustments have to be made.

33 warriorfan March 17, 2017 at 10:31 pm

I’ve thought all along we needed both Stijn and Rado in the lineup to compete with UCLA, Long Beach, BYU, BYU was without it’s best player , Patch.

The easy part of the schedule gave them a false sense of security, coaches need to figure out how to get Stijn and rado on the court, they will be around for TWO more years together, they should have done this earlier this season ….

34 warriorfan March 17, 2017 at 10:35 pm

32. If they lose the first two sets tomorrow, I would start Tui at outside with Stijn, and Rado at opposite, see how next year’s pin hitters will do.

35 warriorfan March 18, 2017 at 5:22 am

Hope Hawaii finds a way to win today for the shot at the at large.

36 Hot March 18, 2017 at 7:12 am

33. Don’t think it’s as easy as that. They tried it and it didn’t work. Stijn can’t pass. And he’s better than Rado at opposite. That’s just how it is. Too bad they’re playing the same position and one has to sit. But you can’t just switch one over to the left just because both are great on the right. Different style, different approach, different responsibilities at OH.

37 rabbit ears March 18, 2017 at 8:33 am

Charlie Wade is a good coach. He can regroup if need be.

38 islandman March 18, 2017 at 8:44 am

So Rado won’t be playing unless he beats out Stjin or due to injury even next year ?
All the talk about depth on the team as a whole,but it doesn’t look that good unless they do better today.

39 blunite March 18, 2017 at 8:52 am

The unspoken rule in most such cases is to change the setter. It is the least complicated solution (keeping Rosenmeier & Matautia on the left). Moreover, Worsley is a speed set specialist.

40 islandman March 18, 2017 at 9:17 am

Rado could transfer ?

41 livealoha March 18, 2017 at 9:51 am

Hawaii doesn’t need to go in panic mode. Hawaii has put together a 20-3 record with this lineup and I expect Wade will keep it in tact for today as well. We will see what happens after tonight.

Another important aspect of volleyball is chemistry, and there’s a cohesion the current lineup has built over the last two months. It would affect Hawaii greatly if they did the switch to Rado at opposite and Stijn outside – especially with only four games left after today and MPSF Tournament right around the corner. I think Wade would rather work with improving his starting seven than tinkering with the lineup at this point of the season.

I personally would have liked to have seen more of the Stijn/Rado lineup in some of Hawaii’s matches against weaker teams too, but you can’t mess up in the MPSF. I think the last time we saw Wade throw reserves to start a MPSF set was UCI, and they lost that third set by a lot. Then there was the debacle that was LBSU night two.

The glaring weakness of this year’s team is they don’t have terminating outsides. Fey, Rossenmeier, and Matautia are streaky, and none are hitting over .300 for the season. Hawaii is .400+ in the middle (under utilized as always) and opposite. But the outsides go through lapses. Tuileta will not be the answer either. He’s probably the best “volleyball” player UH has, but he can’t jump and will be exploited even more by the LBSU, BYU, and UCLAs.

Next season Wade will have to look into Rado and Stijn being in together, but it’ll be dependent on Stijn being able to pass and play defense at the rate Wade wants. If not, it will likely be Rossenmeier and Matautia on the outside.

42 Warriorfan March 18, 2017 at 10:39 am

Chemistry isn’t built overnight and that Stijn/rado lineup basically happened and was destroyed overnight , plus Stijn can pass he’s just has not been working on it playing opposite.
Rado looked dominant against usc can only imagine how good he would be if he played fulltime all season.

43 Warriorfan March 18, 2017 at 10:48 am

Stijn is better than Rado right now, true but will he be in the future? And possibly Stijn is better than Fey and Brett on the outside!

44 WaWa March 18, 2017 at 12:50 pm

The Olmstead’s are siblings, but this is Utah so I can see how sister/wife can be confused.

UH’s blocking was terrible last night. Scheme, assignments, technique, discipline.

Fey, despite his tremendous improvement throughout his years at UH, is not the answer. Always felt the best OH combo would be Rosey/Matautia, Rosey/Tuileta, or should they have developed Stein’s passing throwing him on the left with Rado on the right obviously. And yes, I know that was attempted and failed. But if that would be the best offensive options, you gotta develop that in your practice gym.

Either way, I’m hoping for a much more competitive match tonight. Last night was a real disappointment. Very low energy after the first set.

Langlois’ serve is something to behold tho. He is tall, long and extremely effective.

45 Cindy Luis March 18, 2017 at 2:20 pm
new thread up for Saturday with links to Warriors
and results/link for SandBows

44. thanks. Dad is Rick, great player and longtime ref.

no, Rado isn’t transferring.

no complaints until they lose, as usual.
consider that BYU is very good, and they are very good at home.
Hawaii had chances to win Set 1 so who knows what would have happened if they had. Rosenmeier had a horrible night.
they do have depth but you just don’t move an Opp to LS. they tried it, as mentioned, and The Beach and it was a disaster.

I did ask Wade about maybe doing that again (van Tilburg left, Rado Opp) he said not Saturday.
