UH’s match gets iced; dou­ble­header on Sun­day

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS - By Cindy Luis cluis@starad­ver­tiser.com

Lit­tle did the mem­bers of the Hawaii vol­ley­ball team who en­joy coun­try music know that they’d be liv­ing one of their fa­vorite songs this week in Nashville.

“Colder Weather” by the Zac Brown Band summed up Fri­day for the No. 4 Rain­bow War­riors, whose open­ing match against Lin­coln Memo­rial in the Off Block’s Grow the Game Chal­lenge was post­poned due to in­clement weather.

“It’s pretty ex­treme weather here,” Hawaii coach Char­lie Wade said in a tele­phone call. “It’s snow­ing and it doesn’t snow in Nashville. We’ve seen mul­ti­ple, mul­ti­ple fender-ben­ders and cars slid­ing.

“Part of be­ing on the road is be­ing flex­i­ble, so we’re deal­ing with what we can’t con­trol, which is the weather. Some of the guys have never seen snow and they’re en­joy­ing it.”

Hawaii now will play Lin­coln Memo­rial on Sun­day (10:30 a.m. Hawaii time) af­ter play­ing its sched­uled match with Grand Canyon (7:30 a.m.). To­day the War­riors are sched­uled to play Barton (3 p.m.).

Fri­day’s ice storm and snow, which dropped tem­per­a­tures be­low 20 de­grees, also post­poned the Lime­stone-McKen­dree match. Three early matches did get played, with Charleston de­feat­ing Lime­stone 3-1, Lin­den­wood sweep­ing Ersk­ine and No. 3 Grand Canyon sweep­ing North Greenville.

All matches are be­ing streamed live on Off the Block’s Face­book page. www.face­book.com/offthe block­vol­ley­ball.
