New starting time for VB

February 28th, 2010

The rescheduled men's volleyball match between Hawaii and BYU now will start at 6 p.m. tomorrow in the Stan Sheriff Center.

All seats are general admission, with the top price at $8 for adults.

Grumble, grumble, grumble.

That's all I hear about the UH basketball team.

So I go to my first game of the year — $26 a ticket, by the way — and not only do the Rainbows win, they play well.

That old UCLA high-post offense opens up cuts to the basket. The compact 2-3 zone allows some soft spots in the corners, but clogs the low post. And the players play with great effort.

Do they run? Well, no. But neither did Nevada. But why push it when Nevada drops three back quickly and UH essentially only has one true guard who has to play the entire game?

Maybe last night's game was not  the norm. But it was the only up-close evidence I have.

Negotiations continue between wideout Malcolm Lane, who is currently suspended for breaking team rules, and the UH coaches. At issue is what Lane needs to do to be allowed to rejoin the team. As things currently stand, there are no plans to allow Lane to participate in spring practice or training camp.

This is what the water shelf looked like at Foodland yesterday morning:
