4 Don April 15, 2017 at 6:37 pm

Am I seeing things or did the MPSF send extra line judges?

5 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:03 pm

4 Four local line judges.
Verna K. the up ref.

6 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:04 pm

Warriors back to the usual lineup with van Tilburg at OPP.
Warriors wearing their retro Rainbow uniforms.

7 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:20 pm

Warriors up 15-12 at the TTO, last point on an ace by Fey.

8 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:23 pm

Worsley in to serve. wearing 22 tonight

9 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:24 pm

Mol with the kill. it’s 17-14 TO Pepperdine

10 Don April 15, 2017 at 7:25 pm

7. Campfire defense. Marshamallow time…

11 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:28 pm

Verna letting things go, something she tends to do. waves close to 17-16. TO UH

12 Don April 15, 2017 at 7:29 pm

11. Understatement…too much is not getting called…

13 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:32 pm

Fey with the kill. UH up 20-17. TO Waves

14 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:35 pm

Interesting serving sub. Parapunov in for Mol.

15 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:36 pm

12. at least it’s both ways. some of Franciskovic’s side sets are questionable.

16 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:39 pm

Mol and van Tilburg stuff Dyer. UH wins 25-23.

17 Don April 15, 2017 at 7:40 pm

15. Not as bad as the pizza being served by the Pepp. setter. Scates would be all over this for too much deep dishing.

18 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:47 pm

17. i don’t think his sets are too bad, Ma’a’s are worse.
Mol with the ace, it’s 6-2.

19 Don April 15, 2017 at 7:51 pm

Verna doesn’t even know the pursuit rule.

20 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:52 pm

It’s 10-3. TO Waves. nice solo by Franciskovic.

21 Don April 15, 2017 at 7:52 pm

18. Ma’a’s are terrible…he whines about getting called too.

22 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:54 pm

Big cheer when they showed Shoji on the JumboTron.

23 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:56 pm

21. don’t care for Tuaniga’s either.
Warriors in a zone. it’s 14-4

24 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 7:58 pm

Another block UH’s 6th and it’s 15-5 at the TTO.

25 Don April 15, 2017 at 8:00 pm

23. Someone should be on those when BYU plays on a neutral court. Too many homer calls in Provo.

26 Don April 15, 2017 at 8:01 pm

Verna missed it again…wonder what she’s watching

27 Don April 15, 2017 at 8:04 pm

I think the Malibu Roofing Company went bankrupt this year. Replaced by the Warrior Roofing Company.

28 Maverick April 15, 2017 at 8:07 pm

Serving has been very good tonite, with only 5 service errors between the two teams. Maybe serving for accuracy rather than aces (4 total aces). UH’s season low on service errors is 6 in a 3-set win over Erskine to start the season. On pace to match that tonite with 4 so far.

29 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:09 pm

Just when things were going so well. Pepperdine closes to 23-18. TO UH. It was 19–8

30 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:12 pm

Fey ends it 25-20

31 Maverick April 15, 2017 at 8:18 pm

UH’s blocking is tied for third best for the season at 4.25 bps (also during 2nd UCLA match). Best blocking night was 4.67 bps against USC (2nd match).

32 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:36 pm

Van Tilburg with a ‘that will leave a mark’ kill. it’s 15-11

33 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:39 pm

UH with 12th block. it’s 18-12. TO PEpperdine

34 Don April 15, 2017 at 8:41 pm

32. More like ‘check your shoulder for dislocation’. nailed the libero in the shoulder.

35 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:41 pm

Ace by van Tilburg and it’s 19-12. TO Waves

36 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:42 pm

Tickets issued 6691. turnstile 6301

37 Warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 8:45 pm

Even though Jennings had a few errors he needs to keep being offensive his offense is the x factor that will get UH the national championship along with Rado coming in as the secret weapon off the bench.

38 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 8:47 pm

UH wins 25-15

39 Warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 8:47 pm

It’s too bad the final 6 isnt here this team is basically unbeatable at home and scary thing the team could be even better next year if Rado develops the way Stijn did from freshmen to sophomore.

40 Don April 15, 2017 at 8:48 pm

Marv is 0-9 in sets this year vs. Hawaii../

41 Maverick April 15, 2017 at 8:48 pm

UH sets season record for blocks with 17.5 for the match and 5.83 bps. BTW, UH has 17 blocks against UCLA…in 4 sets. Truly remarkable blocking tonite.

42 Warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 8:51 pm

Gasman was literally a wall,I am so excited for his potential.

43 Blunite April 15, 2017 at 8:52 pm

Pepperdine’s poor passing led to high ball sets to the outside. This allowed UH to put up a triple block. (Reminds of Wahine passing.)

UH can beat BYU with a faster offense (low ball sets to the outside).

44 Warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 8:54 pm

Uh can beat byu away from Provo, think the last loss against BYU and how UH crumbled down the stretch in sets left a bad taste.

45 Don April 15, 2017 at 9:10 pm

44. I think back to the year Hawaii got a bad call against BYU when they had them in Set 5 in Provo. This time, no altitude, no homer refs, and no rude student section.

46 warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 9:19 pm

Ok so basically what UH needs to do to be a shoe in for the final 6, is beat BYU, hope Ohio State wins the MIVA and Long Beach advances to the MPSF final.

47 T103 April 15, 2017 at 9:26 pm

K great win by the boys! I’m a tad bit confused. So this is MPSF conference tournament, if we somehow don’t win this, are we still gonna get to go to the NCAA tournament? MPSF has the top half of the conference ranked in the top 15 of the country, so couldn’t see UH NOT going to the NCAA tournament even we don’t win MPSF. Can someone enlighten me how this works?

48 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 10:09 pm

47. this is how it will work
Winner of MPSF, MIVA, EIVA and Conference Carolinas get automatic bids
2 at-large.
Unless Ohio State doesn’t win the MIVA, the two at-large berths will go to MPSF teams, just as happened in 2015 when Hawaii got the at-large despite losing in the MPSF semifinals.
IMHO, the only way UH doesn’t get the at-large (barring Ohio State being upset) is if UC Irvine wins the MPSF tournament and the automatic berth. If the Anteaters win, then Long Beach State and BYU would get the at-large berths.
at the moment the RPI has BYU 1, Ohio State 2, Long Beach State 3, Hawaii 4, UC Irvine 5.

49 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 10:10 pm

BTW, UH-BYU match at 2 p.m. HST, 5 p.m. PST.

50 T103 April 15, 2017 at 10:12 pm

Ahh thanks Cindy, for clearing that up for me. Someone had told me that the guys brackets aren’t as big as the girls, so I was really confused. Do we know if OC 16 will be heading up to Cali to televise thursdays game? If not, any networks will be carrying it so we can watch here?

51 warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 10:15 pm

Long Beach should have a free livestream, but their announcer is terrible. Hope OCsports televises it.

52 warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 10:21 pm

Stijn was incredible, 10 digs, 5 blocks, unstoppable offensively and He took nice swings from the left, he’s a natural from there.

53 Cindy Luis April 15, 2017 at 10:26 pm

50. don’t know about TV. I will be there as will 1420-AM
.
52. first career double-double for SVT. he passed really well too.

54 blunite April 15, 2017 at 10:48 pm

Per Chris McLachlin, SVT played OH in the Netherlands. Wade put him at Opposite. This means Parapunov could play Opp if SVT goes back to his original OH. It may be that the high ball sets were the problem against LBSU; not the combo of SVT & RP.

55 haleiwacrossfitter April 15, 2017 at 11:25 pm

Tuaniga has got to be the most over rated setter in the country. Dude is nothing special. The fact he had DeFalco at the other end making him look good is all he has. He’s up there by reputation only from his high school days at hunnington beach, which guess who was his high school star hitter? Yup…DeFalco.

56 warriorfan April 15, 2017 at 11:58 pm

I wouldn’t call Tuaniga over rated, but he does IMO hold on too the ball too long.
Personally I think Jennings has been the best setter in conference this year so I hope he makes first team all american over Tuaniga. Jennings can do things no other setters in the country can do at the net, that’s what he needs to use to his advantage MORE.
If UH faces OSU in the final four, I think that Jennings can give them fits with his offense.

57 leron April 16, 2017 at 12:26 am

Was mentioned on post game show that OCSports will not show MPSF tourney. It will be shown here:

58 warriorfan April 16, 2017 at 12:42 am

Long Beach better have a free livestream available also.
I wonder if the Big west will have a tournament next season? or not like the women.
Hopefully they will get some Warriors matches on ESPN3 and Primetime channel like the wahine and mens basketball get for the Big West matches.

59 Marcie Purdy April 16, 2017 at 8:03 am

That Flovolleyball sight is not free. You need to registrar and pay a fee.

60 mith April 16, 2017 at 10:34 am

big west mens vb playoffs will be at pre-determined sites per wade on bobby curran’s show. 2019 is supposed to be held in hawaii. 2018 i think was long beach

61 Warriorfan April 16, 2017 at 10:56 am

Interesting that the men will have a tournament while the women do not.
UH has got to break it’s losing streak to BYU and Long Beach in the next two weeks hopefully.

62 jmy April 16, 2017 at 11:01 am

I like our chances against BYU…Cougars are not the same team outside of Smith Fieldhouse…

63 Warriorfan April 16, 2017 at 11:05 am

62. Me too,the block has to show up big though, as it was a non factor in Provo. Hopefully Kupono will play like last night again and Rosey needs to step it up.

64 Warriorfan April 16, 2017 at 2:02 pm

Does the team fly out to Long Beach tonight or Monday?

65 jm2375 April 16, 2017 at 3:43 pm

64. they fly out Tuesday

66 Ron April 17, 2017 at 6:56 am

After watching the replays of the Pepperdine match it is obvious the blocking has come around but I was also impress with serve/receive passing and Jennings ability to always “better” the ball. I am also glad that Gasman did not play last year because we will get to watch him 3 more years. Tui is still our secret weapon. This is the best blend of locals, main landers, and foreign talent I have see in a long time. Mahalo to a great coaching staff. We could win it all, but first beat BYU and take that smug look off of their faces!

67 Cindy Luis April 17, 2017 at 10:59 am

have mentioned a number of times that Big West MVB will have a tourney staring next year, The MPSF will continue as well. Both leagues will have automatic berths into the NCAA for their respective winning.
LBS hosts ext year, Hawaii 2019. Wade is advocating for neutral site, Las Vegas.

Team leaves Tuesday afternoon. I leave redeye Tuesday night.
