Really?!!? The top three teams in the AVCA coaches poll get sent to the same regional? But at least it's in our house. Come on, Hawaii, let's sell out the Stanley. Bring. It. On.

No more excuses if the Wahine buss up - which they may very well do since they play in a non-challenging conference year after year and always complain they have to play on the mainland. Reference Iowa State - they play in a very challenging league unlike the Wahine.

Congratulations to the Wahine! You control your destiny to go to the Final Four by playing the 1st and 2nd rounds as well as the Regionals at home in front of your awesome fans. I may have a problem if Cal makes it here, but I'll worry about that next week. For now, Wahine to the Final Four!

Wahine gets srewed over again. How can the number 1 & 3 teams in the country get seeded 7 & 10. Does not make any sense. The same old teams get special treatment and get to host like every year. We have to win this time to shut them up for good.
