    Hawaii's Kalei Adolpho and Emily Hartong put up a block on Casey Hinger of Cal State Northridge in the first set of the Cal State Northridge vs University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine volleyball match at Stan Sheriff Center.

Two wins last week resulted in a one spot drop in the Ratings Percentage Index for the Hawaii volleyball team.

The Rainbow Wahine, who stayed at No. 12 in Monday’s AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25, slipped to No. 11 in the RPI which is used to seed teams and help determine the 16 hosts for the NCAA tournament’s first and second rounds.

Texas, which Hawaii defeated to open the season, remained No. 1 in the RPI, followed by Penn State and Washington. 

Hawaii (22-4, 11-3 Big West) finishes the regular season on the road with conference matches at UC Riverside Friday and UC Riverside Saturday.

The NCAA tournament selections show in Sunday. 

Hawaii last hosted the two preliminary rounds in 2011.
