UH Wahine Volleyball 2021

Post by shrek2 »

Tonight's game UH against UCSB pits 1 vs 2 in the conference with UH (8-0) and UCSB (7-1). It appears that this game is not on ESPN+ but a no charge streaming.

I didn't like the broadcaster by the play-by-play guy as he sounded sing-songy and didn't know a volleyball from basketball. I wish his color broadcaster would do the play by play since she could talk volleyball. This is when you really begin to appreciate Kanoa Leahy and his color commentator. Although the Wahine lost, it looks like they can beat UCSB. Van Sickle and Igiede can really put some heat on their hits. Looked awesome.

The Wahine beat Long Beach and UCSB lost to Cal Poly so UH is one game up on UCSB with UCSB coming into Stan Sheriff the last game of the season. Go Lady Bows!

Too bad they scheduled the Cal Poly game the same time as UH Football. Now they go into the final weekend with one loss in the conference with CSUN and UCSB. They have 1 loss and the second place team UCSB has 3 losses. They play UCSB on Saturday and I'm hoping the Wahine will beat them even if it may be of no consequence. No game conflict with football.

The Wahine need to stay focused and beat CSUN to get the automatic invite to the Big Dance. No need to make the UCSB match a winner take all situation. They still will be highly motivated and play hard even if they lock up the BWC with a win over CSUN with Senior Night and revenge for the earlier conference loss at Santa Barbara.

I still don't like having to play two matches on each weekend when the opponent only plays one. Add Sacramento State so there will be an even number of teams to enable UH to have a travel partner (likely UCSD).

The two sports UH can do really well is the women's and men's volleyball. The Aunties are a big deal in both sports which I really enjoy watching and appreciate something they will never have on the mainland. According to what I've read about the Wahine's training in VB is that they have to run a 6 minute mile which is darn good. True athletes.

Wahine VB starting to jell. Good chance to finish first in the BWC, just gotta keep pumping to the finish line. I hope that next year that one of the true freshmen from this year trains hard and steps up to take Brooke's OH1 spot in the lineup, as well as one to seize the opposite position.

Too bad about the loss to UCSB in 5. Our middles were shut down all night. UCSB's libero was a monster!
