Ask former University of Hawaii volleyball player Curt Vaughan any volleyball related questions you have. Curt played for the Warriors from 1993-1997, he then had a short stint with the U.S. National team and played four seasons for various European professional teams.
Patrick Frietas of Honolulu asks:
Who will be the toughest team the Wahine play during the regular season?
Curt: I think the only team that will test the Wahine during the regular season will be Stanford. The WAC schedule should pose no problems for the Wahine. Stanford will come into the Stan Sheriff Center with one of the best players in the nation, Logan Tom. Logan Tom played for the U.S. National team during the World Championships where they placed second. Stanford has lost two games over the past two weeks. One loss came against the top ranked USC Trojans and the other to #19 Arizona. Despite these two losses I believe Stanford is one of the top 3 teams in the nation and should provide the Wahine with a tough challenge.
Jamee of Kaneohe asks:
Do you think the Wahine will win the NCAA Chapionship this year?
Curt: I believe they have a very good chance to win the NCAA Championship this year. The advantage that the Wahine have this year compared to previous years is their depth. The Wahine suffer from having and easy regular season schedule but because this year's team is so good from top to bottom, practices are played at a very high level and this will help them prepare for the tournament. I watched USC play Stanford a few weeks ago and both teams were impressive. After the November 10th game against Stanford I think we will all have a better idea just how good this year's Wahine team is.
