UH Men's Volleyball 2021

Post by shrek2 »

I wondered whether UH could compete against BYU since 2020. This year the field looks really tough for BWC top teams and the rest of the field. Rado looked like he was key in the first win against UCI when they went 5 especially in the last set. All he seems to talk about is doing something for Hawaii. Colton Cowell's gotta feel good about going from walk-on to All-Star. Maybe Chad Galloway is his replacement after this year. Great team, hoping for the best. This is not just a field of two but it looks like there are about 6 teams in the running.

This may be the shortest thread. The big killer was the service errors which gave the momentum to UCSD in the second set. Then in the crucial moments in the final set. With service errors, the other team doesn't even have to work to get the point and makes it easier. UCSD played good fundamental volleyball. I like McCauley apologizing to the UH player that got hit in the face by his slam. Good sportsmanship.

Being #1 seed in the NCAA tournament in Columbus is a great honor for the University of Hawaii. Let's hope they can live up to the seeding.

No complacency allowed! I hope that UH learned a lesson against UCSD. Now it's one and done.

Thanks for the exact location. I wont have to search for it now. I always hate it when I don't discover it until 5 or 10 minutes into the game. Hope they don't come out being too tight in the beginning never to recover.

UH got a reprieve from losing the Big West championship playoffs by beating tournament conference champ UCSB 3-0. Now BYU (most likely) on Saturday at 2pm HT or 5pm PDT. Go Bows.

National Champs! Congrats to the Warriors MVB team!

And big kudos to the donors that made bringing back the seniors for another year. It wouldn't have been possible without their donations.
