Isn’t it always the case when it comes down to post season play. Hawaii was the team last year that got hot when the time was right in the WAC Tournament. This season, again, it was Fresno St. That was an offensive buzzsaw. And of course Kitamura and Alamadova had to get food poisoning on the last day when they had a potential double header. For all those who have gone through that hell of everything coming out at both ends, you know that they were down and out. I give credit to Piikea for playing that second game.
The team played above themselves for the most part and that they were able to do this well in the WAC season i s quite a feat. The offense was not consistent and Kolten Wong was at the mercy of the opposing pitchers as he did not have the hitting support around him in the lineup. It was great watching all their fantastic finishes.
