Wahine Begin Conference Play On the Road
Hawai`i will head for the central coast of California this weekend to kick off the 2016 Big West Conference season at UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly.
Conference play is a whole different ball game for the Wahine who have yet to leave the friendly confines of their home court but over the years Hawai`i teams have been great road teams.
With the return of Annie Mitchem and Nikki Taylor head coach Dave Shoji will have a little less to worry about.
UCSB 9- 4 and Cal Poly 7- 4 are off the good starts but their schedules are suspect. The competition in the Big West this year is said to be a little tougher but Hawai`i is a big team with a deep bench and plenty of power. Shoji has enough combinations that he can use that will be a big help if the need arises.
