Grab the popcorn. Time to watch movies with the UH volleyball team.

Actually, this is work, not play. The guys are preparing for matches Friday and Saturday against UC Irvine, the defending national champs.

"We try to get three days of film work in before we play the match. So yesterday, we do one session where we're watching their offense, then we'll watch their defense, then tomorrow we'll highlight by player," said Hawaii head coach Charlie Wade.

When the 'Bows take the court against the Anteaters, they'll have a slightly different line-up than they did before they left on their recent road trip.

Steven Hunt will start at left side hitter in place of Gus Tuaniga.

"Well, we made the switch at Pacific, we had a poor blocking match up and Steven Hunt, good physical player, good blocker, we made the choice to slide him into the lineup and it worked out," Wade said. "Gus still remains one of our better players and a guy that we'll use when needed. (He's) really good defensively, good serve. It wasn't even that he was struggling, we just needed a little different match up."

See the new line-up and find out if the film work pays off as the Warriors and Anteaters play Friday and Saturday in Manoa and on K5.
