Wahine Volleyball, Stats, looking Ahead

#1 Post by seasider » Mon Sep 21, 2015 1:00 pm

Wahine Volleyball pre-season overall stats

First of all, yesterday’s 3-0 win over UC Bakersfield was the best passing I’ve seen since 2009 when primary passers’ Kanani Danielson, Aneli Cubi—Otineru, and Elizabeth Ka’aihue led the Wahine to
the Final Four. I’ve been hard on Tai Manu-Olevao, who IMHO is the most athletic Wahine on the squad, but lately she has been money as a primary passer. If Tai can continue to be consistent with her passing, and attack at .250%, the Wahine’ run the table (BWC) and give the Wahine a chance to host a sub-regional, and go deep into the NCAA Tournament. The Final Four is not far-fetched, this could be the year.

Primary passers:

Annie Mitchem 20SP 020Kills 1.00Kills/Set 06Kill Errors 051Total Attempts .275%

Blocks (No stats kept on touches-IMHO touches, followed by a dig that results in a Wahine’ kill is just as good as a block. Koelsch blocking stats is misleading because, IMHO she gets a lot of touches. LOL…only way we’ll know is to break-down every game match):

Bottom line (JMHO):

If Nikki Taylor continue or improve on her current STATS she will be a, no Ifs or BUTs, a 1st Team All-American, and will be among the favorites for POY.

The passing of Kahakai, Greeley, and Manu-Olevau remain consistent, there is no reason why Oliva Magill does not make All-American (last year, even with up and down passing, she should have been a 2nd team AA).

And...Tayler Higgins will also have a chance to make All-American if the passing continue to be consistent where she can consistently get the middles involved, and those money sets to the outsides are put down for kills. And…if she can improve on her serving % to >.925% will add to her worth as being one of the elite 2015 setters. That 5th set serving versus Florida, where she consistently set Florida on their heels, was something to behold…up her serving %, and we will see more of that.

And…when Higgins is not into the game, coach Shoji will bring in Koelsch for that needed spark, i.e. versus Florida…And…when Manu-Olevao is also not into the game, coach will not hesitate to sub her with freshmen’ Granato or Castillo.

And...Savannah Kahakai, must continue to be assertive, be that boss of the back-row, so that coach Shoji have no lingering doubts on who IS the Wahine’ starting Libero.

And…too bad about Megan Huff. Down the line, after Nikki Taylor’ grad…she probably, with her athleticism and height, could’ve been the next Wahine’ opposite to terminate the D-SET. We’ll never know…but, definitely, when her basketball career is all pau, she’ll go down as one of the best BIGs to ever don a Wahine’ uniform.

But…the cupboard is not bare. There’s a 6-3 OH (Castillo) with athleticism, and a high-volleyball IQ who can be the next Opposite to terminate the D-Set.

Yes, I loved the passing against CS-Bakersfield this past Sunday, and enjoyed seeing the MHs get more swings.
