Wahine volleyball Five-O episode to be shot next Saturday

By Ann Miller

POSTED:



Hawaii’s record-breaking volleyball crowds make their network debut next Saturday.

Producers of “Hawaii Five-0” are asking fans to hang out after the second Pepperdine match at Stan Sheriff Center to help film an upcoming episode.


The storyline and Oct. 17 broadcast date remain “fluid,” but the episode revolves around Rainbow Wahine volleyball. It looks like the UH coach — played in real life by Dave Shoji — will get spiked in the show, finally explaining why the term “kill” came to be used in the sport.


The match starts at 7 p.m. and some 5,000 tickets are available. The university is asking fans to wear green “H” logo shirts.


The Friday-Saturday series with the Waves could be Hawaii’s most compelling matches until the postseason. Pepperdine has two five-set wins over ranked teams the last three days.


The unranked Waves gave 12th-ranked UCLA its first loss Wednesday, winning 15-13 in the fifth. The Bruins handed Hawaii its first loss a week ago. Pepperdine hadn’t beaten UCLA in seven years. It hadn’t defeated a Top-10 team in eight.


Friday, the Waves (5-2) took out No. 23 Dayton, 16-14 in the fifth, at the Flyers’ Classic in Ohio. They meet 20th-ranked Michigan this morning and No. 24 Florida State tonight.


Pepperdine’s losses are to 10th-ranked Texas and Miami.
