HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A big sports weekend lies ahead on the UH Campus. Both the Rainbow hoop and the Warrior volleyball teams are in action and both are in desperate need of some "W's."
For the volleyball team, there's no rest for the weary. Less than a week after dropping three matches, all against Top 15 competition, the Warriors are right back at it.
Hawaii opens Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play against defending national champion Stanford.
At 0-3, the call in camp this week is to put that slow start behind them.
"I think a lot of people noticed a little bit of tension in our game and a little bit of an uncomfortable feel for a lot of people," said setter Nejc Zemljac. "We got that going and it's going to be easier from now on."
"We got to play a little better, I think we got a little anxious with the offense and trying to go in system too much and the hitters trying to force a little bit," said head coach Charlie Wade. "With a good week of practice, we'll be ready to go on Friday."
Last year, the Cardinal stopped the Warriors in the MPSF Semifinals. Hawaii is hoping for payback on Friday.
First serve is at 7 p.m., with the re-match set for Sunday at 5 p.m.
